The new 2019 Interceptor Utility , which is based upon the Ford Explorer SUV , now features a standard hybrid powertrain. All-wheel-drive is also standard, with Ford promising that the additional components needed for the hybrid system do not compromise interior packaging.

Refreshing or Revolting: 2019 Toyota RAV4

  Refreshing or Revolting: 2019 Toyota RAV4 Toyota took risks—did they pay off?Whether you like the new design, Toyota deserves credit for taking risks and going for a totally different look. We see some of the biggest design changes up front. The previous-generation RAV4 featured a rounded face, but the new model has a squared-off front end. New headlights complement the more aggressive, sharply defined grille. The look reminds us a lot of the Tacoma, especially the Adventure trim model. Toyota also positioned the foglights higher up on the front fascia. Overall, we'd say the RAV4's front end looks much more athletic than before.

The Police Interceptor Utility Hybrid will be available for police forces to order beginning this summer, but production of the SUV won't kick off in May of 2019 . The new Explorer, meanwhile, will make its debut early 2019 , before going on sale to the general public later in the year. Source: Ford .

Ford confirmed as much to Roadshow today, which lines up with earlier reports that suggest a redesigned SUV will launch for the 2020 model year. Police agencies will be able to order the new Police Interceptor Utility Hybrid this summer, and the vehicles will go into production in May 2019 .

More importantly, Ford states that the new Interceptor Utility will be even faster than the previous version. The hybrid combination of gasoline engine and battery power is said to give quicker acceleration, and a higher top speed, than the outgoing model. Criminals might be wise to check for ‘hybrid’ badges before deciding to outrun the law.

Potential felons might also have to think twice about hoping pursuing police will run out of fuel. Hybrid efficiency means an estimated increase in fuel efficiency of some 40 percent over the existing 3.7-liter V6 engine.

The new hybrid Interceptor is estimated to save around $3,200 per vehicle in fuel usage compared to the old non-hybrid model. Based upon the number of Interceptor Utility vehicles Ford sold in 2017, when totaled this would equate to an incredible $126 million saving on fuel costs alone.

Hybrid systems in the new Interceptor have been tuned to be suited to police usage, being able to run computers, radios, and lights from the lithium-ion battery alone. Perfect for waiting around to catch crooks in the act.

Adding hybrid technology is not the only big change for the Interceptor Utility, with Ford also proud of the new Perimeter Alert system. This makes use of the Utility’s blind-spot monitoring to scan for threats, and react automatically if one is detected by locking doors, closing windows, and making noise.

Ford increased its share of the police vehicle market in the United States by 5 percent during 2017, claiming a total of 65 percent. Dodge will soon have a new challenger in the shape of the Durango SUV Pursuit model, albeit without the option of hybrid power. Production of the new Ford Police Interceptor Utility will begin in summer 2019 at Ford’s Chicago Assembly plant.
