Ford Taurus Police Sedan

A lot of law enforcement agencies have started asking for a car that they can use with low fuel consumption, which means that a bullet is not necessary when it comes to its speed. This is when the American carmaker Ford came up with an idea. The have decided to develop its first special service police sedan that has as base the Taurus, which is powered by a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine. According to different specialists of the brand, the new Taurus-based police car was designed to meet the needs of administrators and even detectives, campus police and also law enforcement agencies. All these categories have been trying to increase their fuel economy. The 2.0-liter turbocharged unit is capable of generating 240 horsepower and 270 lb. ft. of torque. 

This turbocharged inline-four uses less fuel than the V6, for example and to be more precise, we are talking about the flex-fuel 3.5-liter V6 with front wheel drive capable of developing 285 horsepower. It is also more efficient than a 3.7-liter front wheel drive with 305 horsepower or than the 3.5-liter Turbo / EcoBoost with all-wheel drive capable of producing 365 horsepower. These variants have been used by the Ford Taurus Interceptors.

We have been talking a lot about fuel consumption and to for this matter, know that the carmaker is offering 20 mpg in the city, 30 mpg on the highway and 23 mpg on a combined cycle with the 2.0-liter unit. The 4.6-liter V8 Crown Victoria used until now has a fuel consumption of 14 mpg in the city, 21 mpg on the highway and 17 mpg on a combined cycle. The special service police package can save agencies a lot of money, but it brings other expenses as well, and not just for fuel. This is all for now, everybody, so please wait for the official statement coming from the American company regarding the adoption of the 2.0-liter Taurus engine.
