365 horsepower, turbocharged grunt, AWD traction and an automatic is a good recipe, alright. “Quickly closing the distance between an officer and a target vehicle is key to safely avoiding high-speed pursuits.” said Arie Groeneveld, the chief engineer of the Taurus PPV.
Testing results of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department claim the same thing for the sedan PPV. Furthermore, with a 0 to 60 mph time of 5.9 seconds, the 2015 Police Interceptor utility also out-accelerated its competitors. It was quicker to 60 than the RWD V6-powered sedan competition as well.
That’s all jolly and all, but the Blue Oval is not aware of the existence of a PPV-spec Chevrolet Caprice. On any given day, the GM machine does a 5.9-second run to 60 mph thanks to a 6-liter V8 with 355 horsepower and 384 lb-ft (520 Nm). But the Procharged Caprice PPV LSX-9C1 boasts with 489 RWHP and 595 lb-ft (806 Nm) of twist. Sorry Ford, but that Caprice is a properly fast crime-stopping pursuit vehicle.
