Lawbreakers beware! Ford just pulled the wraps off the latest iteration of its F-150 Police Responder. Originally introduced in 2017, this newest F-150 Police Responder is built on the F-150 SuperCrew platform and boasts a host of upgrades to make it an even more capable all-terrain pursuit vehicle.

The enhancements start with a 400-horsepower 3.5L EcoBoost engine and a specially-tweaked 10-speed transmission, which allow the F-150 Police Responder to hit a 120 mph top speed. A new automatic four-wheel drive mode and torque-on-demand transfer case promise improved traction in various on- and off-road conditions as well.

The F-150 Police Responder also has a clever Police Engine Idle feature which lets the Officer remove the key and secure the vehicle while the engine runs to power the lights and sirens.

Other upgrades include the FX4 Off-Road package, which boasts off-road shocks, skid plates, and an electronically-locking rear axle. Police Departments can also opt for available towing packages that offer up to 11,200-pound towing capacity.

    I’d have preferred the 7.3 (445 cubic inches)”Godzilla” V8 to power this cruiser. I know Ford doesn’t put it in F150’s (yet) But former Ford Engineer Brian Wolfe has a couple of them in Mustangs, at 700 horsepower non-supercharged. Nothing wrong with the “ecoboost” V6, but plenty of room to throw two turbos on a Godzilla, too. Might as well go “all in”.
