Though police activity in film seems to be almost exclusively comprised of high-speed car chases, reality can be a lot different. Most police officers never need to go that fast and, in fact, some know they never will. So it’s usually a good idea to apply the same environmentally-conscious philosophy to police cars as the one that applies to consumer cars and make them as fuel-efficient as possible.
Ford’s Police Interceptor sedan does just that by offering a fuel-efficient 2.0-liter EcoBoost inline four-cylinder engine in addition to its regular V6s. This Special Service Police Sedan is not pursuit-rated and is instead aimed at law enforcement agencies who don’t need the extra power, such as college campus police and detectives. This will allow them to save thousands of dollars in the long run by cutting fuel costs.
The sedan is certified with an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 20 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway, with a combined rating of 24 mpg, making it the most fuel-efficient police sedan out there.
