Ford is staying out in front.
The Explorer-based Police Interceptor Utility has once again topped the Michigan State Police’s evaluation of law enforcement vehicles, setting the lowest time around a circuit at Grattan Raceway designed to test overall performance in a pursuit situation.
The 400 hp version of the 2022 model year SUV lapped the track in 1:36.01, which was quick enough to beat the V8-powered Dodge Charger’s 01:36.43 result.
The Interceptor Utility also posted the shortest 0-60 mph acceleration time at 5.45 seconds to edge the Ford F-150 Police Responder’s 5.79-second result and session-best top speed of 148 mph.
The 2021 F-150 Police Responder did the sprint in 5.4 seconds during a standalone test this summer, which was the quickest of last year’s models.
