2016 Ford Police Interceptor's Latest Features:

  • Liftgate: Similar to the consumer version of the Explorer, officers can now push a button to unlock the rear liftgate mechanism instead of having to use a key. The liftgate remains unlocked for 45 seconds, so officers to access the cargo area, then it relocks itself.
  • Rear Camera: The new model gets a rear camera with a washer mechanism. The view can seen from a 4-inch screen in the center stack. If police department prefers, they can have the view displayed on the rear-view mirror instead.
  • Emergency Lights: There are 25 different light-blinking patterns. The lights are now better integrated into the new front and rear fascia, Ford says, "allowing for a more seamless design and a stealthier look for patrol duty." The wig-wag high-beam lights are incandescents.
  • Electrical: The electric system has been improved to better accommodate the extra police equipment.
  • Available Surveillance Mode: Technology detects if someone approaches the vehicle from behind and automatically raises the windows and locks the doors.
