With the retirement of the Crown Victoria, police departments across the country have been searching for a replacement.

Specialist Joe Stevens says no American automaker immediately announced plans for a new cruiser, so Ford decided to get back into the game.  GM and Chrysler both also introduced new models specifically for law enforcement.  And after testing models from all three, Cincinnati Police have decided to go with the Ford Police Interceptors.

He says the Fords have an excellent safety rating for rear-end collisions, (the most common suffered by law enforcement), and their suspensions are better than something you can buy off the lot.
