Ford F-150 Special Service Vehicle package for police and fire
Ford has officially released a new ‘Special Service Vehicle Package’ for the F-150 pickup. The package will be targeted for fleet’s police or forest-ranger duty vehicles.
The pack adds in a larger 220-amp alternator to support electrical needs, and a unique interior configuration at no extra cost. Inside, the trucks offer cloth seating and additional space between the front seats for a range of extra gizmos, including communications equipment and firearm storage.
Agencies can also specify beefier components like heavy-duty tyres and skid plates to suit their needs. The ‘SSV Package’ trucks can be had with either a 3.5-litre Ecoboost V6 engine with 365 hp and 570 Nm of torque or the 5.0-litre V8 with 360 hp and 515 Nm of torque.
Both engines are bolted to a 6-speed automatic transmission, and buyers can equip the pickup with either four-wheel-drive or two-wheel-drive, in SuperCab and SuperCrew styles.
