Ford has evidently found the government and fleets market immensely profitable, as they keep making new models and improving the existing ‘Service’ range. So following the success of their Police Interceptors we now get this, the Ford F-150 Special Service Vehicle.
As with the previous cars, the rough and tumble Ford F-150 Special Service Vehicle, based on the 2016 F-150, offers a wide range of options which makes the vehicle suitable for a variety of jobs. You can have this truck in SuperCrew or SuperCab configuration, with 4×4 or 4×2 drivetrain, and with the 5.0-liter V8 or high-torque 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine.
As for the special equipments that could become handy during law enforcement and fleet, the F-150 SSV comes with high-output 240-amp alternator, 40/blank/40 seats with space for ‘special’ use, vinyl bench rear seats, and since Police work can potentially get messy, easy-to-clean vinyl flooring, so cops can wash the blood out of the car in no time!
With the new Ford F-150 Special Service Vehicle joining a lineup that also includes a Transit Prisoner Transport Vehicle and a Special Service Police Sedan, it is fair to say Ford is doing more than its fair share to keep the nation safe and make enforcing the law just a little bit easier.
