Ford F-150 Police Responder is Pursuit-Rated

The all-new 2018 F-150 Police Responder was made especially for law enforcers looking for a more versatile and capable patrol vehicle. The 375hp and 470 lb-ft of torque are slightly higher than Interceptor SUV ratings - Ford has offered more power from the same engines in its trucks for years as the pickups have drivetrains capable of handling more engine output.

Since the truck was specifically designed for police duty, it has been equipped with a beefier front stabilizer bar, an upgraded braking system, and 18-inch alloy wheels with all-terrain tires.

Powered by a 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine with 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque, the F-150 is capable of speeds up to 100 miles per hour, while also having four-wheel drive for all-terrain police performance. The crucial parts of the underbody have been protected with metal skid plates.

Theresa May says election night made her 'shed a little tear'
"My husband watched it for me and came and told me and I was shocked at the result that had come through in the exit poll". She added: "People can smell blood and that is exactly what is going on in the corridors of power so to speak".

Under the hood, there's Ford's 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine, four-wheel drive, and a 10-speed SelectShift transmission.

The five-passenger pickup has a towing capacity of 7,000 pounds, the most of any vehicle in the segment.

Indeed, Ford's upcoming Police Responder Hybrid Sedan pitches its gas-electric powertrain specifically as a way to avoid burning unnecessary fuel while the vehicle is idle. The good guys in front get to enjoy heavy-duty cloth seats with anti-stab plates, while the bad guys in back are treated to vinyl seats and flooring that make for easy cleanup.

Trade data out of China
Iron ore is among China's biggest imports from the North after it stopped buying coal this year due to the sanctions. He said Chinese imports from the North fell 36.5 percent in March, 41.6 percent in April and 31.6 percent in May.

Recently, some police departments have pulled Ford Explorer-based police vehicles from service because of concerns over carbon monoxide leaks.

The new pickup is based on the F-150 FX4 off-road model, and will be used in "off-road patrol situations for officers in rural environments patrolled by sheriff's departments, border patrol operations and the Department of Natural Resources", said Stephen Tyler, Ford's police brand marketing manager. There's also a police-calibrated speedometer, and engine hour and engine idle hour meters.

The 2018 F-150 Police Responder will go on sale in the spring of 2018.
