The History of Ford Police Cars
By: Fedora Atjeh | September 20, 2017
The evolution of Ford police cars (Interceptor, Crown Victoria, etcetera) is one of those videos that you have to see. To mark the launch of Ford's new hybrids for the police, the blue oval brand has developed a videoinfography that gives a review of different generations of Ford police cars from the 1950s to today.
The video starts in the 1950 Ford Mainline, Ford's first official express model created for the police, which was relieved in 1952, with the Ford Interceptor and its marathon-working seats.
As early as 1956, the line of the Ford Interceptor adopts new forms, with fins that pick up the trend of the tailfin era. And this aesthetic is maintained until in 1971 the Ford Galaxie introduces a much more austere and functional design.
In 1982 the Ford Mustang SSP was much more compact, and only a year later, in 1983, the arrival of the Ford LTD Crown Victoria was a new leap in the evolution of Ford police cars. The model is modernized in 1998 and 2009, before giving the witness in 2013 to the Ford Taurus Incerceptor that have reached our days.
Gone are the fights of Ford with Chevrolet and Dodge by the control of the police vehicles. Gone is also the role of the Ford Taurus Interceptor as the police car that runs the most. Hybridization times have arrived, as evidenced by the information on the Ford Police Responder Hybrid that we released in April, and the bad guys have it worse than ever to escape.
