Ford EcoBoost Acceleration Times
The Ford EcoBoost Police Interceptor sedan is again ranked as the top performing Michigan State Police and Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department testing model for 2015. The Ford EcoBoost acceleration times posted in the Interceptor with a V6 managed to outdo other vehicles with V8 engines under the hood. Continuing to show that the EcoBoost technology is not only relevant, but a better option in many cases.
The EcoBoost-powered police sedan, based off the Ford Taurus, was able to post a 0-60 mph time of 5.85 seconds, where most other vehicles tested alongside the Interceptor were clocked at times above 6 seconds. The EcoBoost engine again proved itself in a 0-100 mph test, reaching triple digit speed in 14.19 seconds.
The utility Interceptor, based on the Ford Explorer, performed equally well with times of 6.55 and 16.13 seconds. It also took the fastest utility lap time at Grattan Raceway. Results for both vehicles were similar in Michigan and California.
Though other factors in vehicle performance are obviously required, the best way to stop a high-speed pursuit is to quickly close the distance between an officer and the vehicle in question. The police Interceptors are also incredibly safe vehicles, however, stopping a pursuit before it starts may be the safest feature of all. As some of the fastest police vehicles on the road, it is unlikely that there are many civilian vehicles that could accelerate as quickly.
The Ford Interceptor is also in its 17th year of sales leadership. This is a testament not only to the capability of Ford EcoBoost technology, but the craftsmanship involved in each Ford vehicle that the automaker produces and we bring to Brandon Ford.
Though our vehicles don’t come with flashing red and blue lights or that beautiful black and white paint job, many of them do come with capable EcoBoost engines and the designs that make a safe and comfortable Ford vehicle.
