While the Michigan State Police won’t release its full report on the latest round of vehicle testing for some time, Ford has revealed the winning numbers for its cop cars. The Police Interceptor sedan with the twin-turbo EcoBoost engine set the fastest acceleration times of all the cars tested by the MSP. The 365-hp car recorded a 0-to-60-mph time of 5.75 seconds, a 0-to-80-mph time of 9.08 seconds, and a 0-to-100-mph time of 13.77 seconds. The next quickest car, according to Ford, was a Dodge Charger with the 5.7-liter engine, which needed 6.08 seconds to reach 60 mph.
“These fast closing-in speeds are critical for first responders and law enforcement professionals,” Ford explained in a statement.
The sedan also set the fastest overall and fastest average lap times in MSP testing at the two-mile Grattan Raceway in Michigan. The Police Interceptor EcoBoost model set a fastest lap time of 1:34.6 and an average lap time of 1:34.98 seconds. The next-quickest car, according to Ford, was the Chevrolet Caprice police car with an average lap time of 1:35.36.
