For fleet customers of the 2016 Ford F-150, the Special Service Vehicle package represents a sensible option.
The Special Service Vehicle package is available for the XL-trim Ford F-150 in either SuperCrew or SuperCab configuration, and features a high-output, 240-volt alternator, vinyl flooring and a vinyl rear bench seat for easier cleanup, and a center-seat delete up front ripe for configuration. It’s powered by a choice of either 5.0-liter V8, or 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, with either a 4×2 or 4×4 drivetrain.
Now, the Ford F-150 Special Service Vehicle has been extended to incorporate the needs of law enforcement officers, as well. “Many officers need the extra space F-150 Special Service Vehicle offers,” says Ford Police Marketing Manager Stephen Tyler. “They can load the cargo box with equipment and still fit five people inside. Its utility is unmatched.”
The Ford F-150 joins an extensive lineup of vehicles that can be configured for police use, including the Ford Expedition Special Service Vehicle, Transit Prisoner Transport Vehicle, Special Service Police Sedan, and of course, the Taurus- and Explorer-based Ford Police Interceptor Sedan and Utility.
Says Ford’s Chief Program Engineer for Police Vehicles, Arie Groeneveld: “We offer a whole family of police vehicles. Our lineup aims to fulfill the unique needs of law enforcement officers, and our F-150 Special Service Vehicle is an extension of that offering.
“This vehicle definitely lives up to its Built Ford Tough reputation.”
