2016 Ford Police Interceptor Utility to bow in Chicago

It's official. The 2016 Ford Police Interceptor Utility is making its debut in the city where it will be produced. For the moment, all we know for sure about this new Explorer-based perp-thwarter is that it offers significant improvements compared to the current model and incorporates more high-tech features aimed at helping law enforcers do their duty more effectively, efficiently and safely.

While this sole teaser image is far from revealing, it does show the revamped Police Interceptor Utility swaps the existing grille-mounted forward warning lights for new C-shaped red/blue flashing running lamps on its lower front fascia. No word on whether Ford is planning any changes underhood, or whether the current 304-horsepower/3.7-liter TiVCT V6 and 365-horse/3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine choices will carry over unchanged.
