Ford already offers a Police Responder version of the Explorer and now its revealed the new 2021 F-150 Police Responder pickup.
The F-150 Police Responder debuted in 2017 and now we have the new one, which is based on the new F-150 SuperCrew. Under the hood it’s powered by a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that generates 400 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque, which is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Ford says that the engine has been “uniquely calibrated” to withstand higher speeds.
The power can be sent to all four wheels via a new torque-on-demand transfer case that includes a new 4-Auto mode, with an electrically actuated clutch that automatically adjusts torque as needed.
It also rides on specially developed Goodyear LT265/70R18 LRC BSW Wrangler Enforcerall-terrain tires that are designed to handle fast acceleration, high speeds and aggressive cornering.
To give it more capability off-road, the F-150 Police Responder also gets the FX4 Off-Road Package that includes underbody skid plates, off-road-tuned shocks, electronic-locking rear axle and Hill Descent Control.
The F-150 Police Responder has a standard towing capacity of 7,000 pounds and available towing capacity of 11,200 pounds, in addition to its payload capacity of 2,030 pounds.
There’s also a new feature that lets an officer remove the key from the ignition with the engine running and exit the truck. Agencies can also choose from up to four traditional fleet keys or up to four available fobs with keyless entry per truck.
The 2021 Ford F-150 Police Responder will arrive this fall.
