Ford Celebrates Production Milestone – 100,000 Ford Police Interceptor Vehicles Built

On April 23, employees at Troy Design and Manufacturing, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ford Motor Company, celebrated a major milestone – production of Police Interceptor No. 100,000. Since 2012, the 54,000-square-foot Troy Design and Manufacturing upfit facility has been the single source for America’s best-selling line of law enforcement vehicles. Troy Design and Manufacturing has the flexibility to produce between 600 and 1,200 vehicles per week depending on demand. It takes an estimated 5.5 hours for a vehicle to be completely upfitted with law enforcement equipment. Law enforcement agencies from across the United States – and around the world – can select from more than 125 packages, including different lighting options, wraps and styles. Police Interceptor No. 100,000 will be put into service with the Chicago police force later this year.

In 2014, Ford Police Interceptor was the best-selling law enforcement vehicle in America. It is the market share leader in 40 states, and has a 55 percent market share nationally. Production of the new 2016 Police Interceptor Utility, which was revealed at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show, begins this summer. With innovative features like Surveillance Mode, Pursuit Mode and EcoBoost® power, Ford Police Interceptor Utility will continue to change the face of law enforcement vehicles everywhere.
