Fastest cop car is Ford Police Interceptor, reaches 150 mph

The best-selling police vehicle in America will soon be faster than ever.

In head-to-head testing, the new Ford Explorer-based law enforcement vehicle will be the fastest cop car on the street, according to new preliminary test data from the Michigan State Police based on a 32-lap dynamics test.

“The fact that a big SUV can smoke a Hemi Charger around a racetrack is pretty ridiculous. The 2020 Ford Police Interceptor Utility is a beast,” said Chris Terry, Ford product communications spokesman.

“When a car blows past you at 120 miles an hour, you need to get that person off the road as quickly as possible in the interest of public safety," he said.

The Dodge Charger had the quickest acceleration at lower speeds — 0 to 20 mph, 0 to 30 mph, and 0 to 40 mph. But the Ford Police Interceptor had the best times going 0 to 50 mph, 0 to 60 mph and 0 to 100 mph.

A heavy SUV going faster than a fast sedan in a pursuit ratings test is notable, Terry said.
