Have you heard about the Ford Police Interceptor Utility? it's a vehicle specifically built to protect officers on duty. It has a set of unique features that differentiate it from normal cars, such as livery, lights, steel wheels, and a divider between the two seating rows. However, its greatest asset is the high-tech ballistic panels (bulletproof doors) that are used to shield the occupants from gunfire. What's more, they can easily make a clean getaway because this crossover is a sprinter: it can go from 0 to 60 in 6.4 seconds and up to 100 in just 16 seconds.
The SUV isn’t available for civilians but you can get your hands on a 2018 Ford Explorer XLT, which is the unmodified version. Its 3.5L V6 engine cranks out 290 horsepower at 6,500 revs per minute and 255 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,000 rpm. As for top-notch safety features, it’s got Advancetrac with Roll Stability and ESC. This improves handling to maintain control and reduces the chance of skidding on all dangerous driving surfaces (especially snow, ice, gravel, and rain-covered roads).
