Ford Police Interceptor Achieves 61 Percent Market Share for First Half of 2015

  • Ford Police Interceptor Utility remains best-selling police vehicle in America
  • Combined Police Interceptor Sedan and Utility market share up six points compared to full-year 2014
  • Increases mark third straight year of gains for Ford Police Interceptor

DEARBORN, Mich., Oct. 13, 2015 – Ford Police Interceptor Sedan and Utility vehicles gained six points of market share for 2015, according to Ford analysis of the latest registration data from Polk/IHS Automotive.

Introduced in 2012, Police Interceptor Utility quickly became America’s best-selling police vehicle – which has helped Ford capture 61 percent market share through June 2015.

“It’s been amazing to watch the transition from the Crown Victoria, which was universally loved and trusted, to the new Police Interceptor Sedan and Utility lineup,” said Raj Sarkar, general marketing manager, Ford North American Fleet, Lease and Remarketing operations.

“Before Michigan State Police and Los Angeles County Sheriff’s tests dispelled any doubts about the performance of the new vehicles, we had dipped below 40 percent share,” Sarkar added. “Now, here we are three years later and we’re still gaining.”

Police Interceptor Utility is the only pursuit-rated midsize utility available to law enforcement. Both sedan and utility are the only pursuit-rated vehicles with standard all-wheel drive.
