Sneaky New Ford Police Interceptor Utility Has Stealth Skills
Ghost Unit Crooks Beware
Here come the Fuzz, lawbreakers! Thanks to a new superlow-profile light bar, all wrongdoers, from committers of minor infractions to major felons, will have a more difficult time recognizing the profile of the bestselling police vehicle in their rearview mirrors.
Ford recently announced it is going to offer a factory-installed front interior visor light bar that provides a stealth appearance for police agency patrol vehicles.
“Today, agencies typically use aftermarket interior visor light bars that are somewhat bulky and can obstruct the field of vision—especially for taller officers,” says Stephen Tyler, Ford police marketing manager for North American fleet, lease and remarketing operations. “This extremely low-profile unit is fully integrated where the headliner and top of the windshield meet, for tremendously improved driver visibility versus aftermarket alternatives.”
Another advantage of the new interior visor light is that the dark shade band at the top of the windshield is replaced by clear glass when the light is ordered, providing superior color visibility and brightness.
The light comes with a limited warranty and maintains the spacious interior feel that many agencies love about the newest generation of Ford Police Interceptor. When activated, it flashes brightly, alternating red and blue bars through the top of the windshield. It can also be programmed for red-red or blue-blue operation.
The visor light features bright white “takedown” and “scene” capabilities for excellent forward visibility, and can be set up to meet California Title 13 regulations. It can be programmed from full intensity down to 20 percent, and it has auto-dimming capability as well.
Police departments, step up, because the interior visor light is available to order now on the 2017 Ford Police Interceptor Utility. Note: Light package does not include tear-wipe hankies for crying apprehended perpetrators.
