Ford unveiled the all-new 2021 F-150 Police Responder, America’s only purpose-built pickup truck. The all-new Ford F-150 Police Responder features increased capability, including an improved 120 mph top speed, automatic four-wheel-drive mode with torque-on-demand transfer case to help patrolling officers’ transition from busy streets to country roads.
Greg Ebel, Ford police vehicle brand manager said, “Law enforcement agencies told us they would love to add F-150 Police Responder towing, hauling and off-road performance to their fleets, but they need more confidence in speed and handling. Whether suburban police departments, border patrol agents or rural sheriffs, officers never know where the job might take them, but the all-new F-150 Police Responder provides a pickup truck option engineered to get them there faster and with greater agility than ever before”.
F-150 Police Responder pickup has 3.5-liter EcoBoost® engine produces 400 horsepower. The engine is then paired with a 10-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission to enable speeds significantly higher than a stock F-150.
To withstand high speeds, the vehicle uses specially developed Goodyear LT265/70R18 LRC BSW Wrangler Enforcer all-terrain tires. A new torque-on-demand transfer case includes 4-Auto mode, with an electrically actuated clutch that automatically adjusts torque as needed to provide seamless terrain transition. The torque-on-demand system couples with the standard F-150 FX4 Off-Road Package to give officers outstanding off-road capability.
The updated darker-colored interior, including police-grade heavy-duty cloth front seats, was influenced by officer input. It features built-in steel intrusion plates in both front seatbacks for officer safety, as well as red-and-white task lighting. LED police warning beacons are available pre-installed in red and blue, amber, or amber and white.
