Fox news SHO'd a clip of the new Interceptors and spoke of doing a bit on them, just passing the news if some currently on wish to watch it. After tonight, it won't be there.

Nice.

15,000 orders! New shift work in Chicago! Thank you Obama!

Oh. Wait. Ford didn't take the bail out.

Never mind.

Meh, this isn't going to go over well. Overcomplicated, heavy, front wheel drive based car doing the same duty the Crown Vics did. At least the economy will be stimulated with all the extra mechanics they'll be hiring!

I was thinking that too. I see more than a fair share of trans problems on the SHO's owned by regular folks. Under police usage I can only see it being worse.

I wonder what Chicago is going to pick to replace the Crown Vic's and if they're gonna sway away from the Tahoes. I'm thinking theyd pick the Caprice..

Top Gear did a comparison of the Dodge, GM and Ford offerings. It was interesting. Seemed like the Ford was the one to beat. Not just by performance standards. But reliability issues would be a big concern. If they are valid.

Crystal lake has a few Taurus's and explorers now. They look badass in all black.

I drove a 2013 Interceptor SHO at the Ford proving grounds around a very fast autox course. The Interceptor's body control and grip is much more impressive than the pedestrian SHO - I believe it's lighter too. Even so, the additional police gear blocked the already shitty forward visibility, and it felt even tinier than the SHO already does. Huge on the outside, small on the inside.

I really want a new Interceptor Utility to DD. Good gas mileage, durable as fuck, AWD, powerful, roomy, just fucking awesome, really.

Hust, Tx has quite a few caprices and new chargers down here.

Have yet to see an Intercepter/SHO squad car or even the explorer.

Most departments have/had Vic's and phased into an all Tahoe inventory around here.
