2017 Ford Interceptor Utility police SUVs to come with new LED light bar
In an announcement made last week, bigwig automaker Ford said that it has efforts underway to roll out a new LED light bar to the 2017 Ford Interceptor Utility police SUVs, in order to make the police cars more difficult to spot.
With Ford planning to do away with the traditional light bars on the 2017 Ford Interceptor Utility police SUVs, it will become harder than ever to spot police cars in the near future, especially since they no longer have department decals, massive spotlights, and extra antennae, which were a police department standard in the past.
According to the details shared by Ford, the new LED light bar which the company is introducing in the 2017 Ford Interceptor Utility police SUVs will be a factory-installed light bar, for giving the police patrol vehicles a stealth appearance, particularly on speed-sensitive roads.
The new LED light bar of the 2017 Ford Interceptor Utility police SUVs will not be as bulky as the aftermarket add-ons because they will be built into the headliner right its point of intersection with the windshield.
Ford has asserted that the installation of the low-profile LED light bar near the sun visors on the inside of the 2017 Ford Interceptor Utility police SUVs will make the patrol cars difficult to spot from a distance if the LED light is not turned on. The automaker also said that the new light will offer improved visibility to police officers.
