Ford’s Special Service Police Sedan has been given official mpg ratings by the EPA, coming in at 20 mpg city, 30 mpg highway and 24 mpg combined.

Those fuel numbers are delivered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost engine that makes 240 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. Active grille shutters are also in play on these cars to improve aerodynamics and save fuel.

The 2.0-liter equipped cars will not be pursuit rated, which is why Ford also offers a 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine that pumps out 365 hp and 350 lb-ft.

According to Ford, police agencies stand to save up to $1,720 over three years compared to the next most fuel-efficient police sedan, assuming that the car is driven about 30,000 miles a year and gas costs $3.21 a gallon.
