New Ford Police Interceptor Debuts at 2015 Chicago Auto Show
Released by Ford Motor Company in February 2015
CHICAGO, Feb. 11, 2015 – Ford will unveil the 2016 Ford Police Interceptor Utility vehicle at the Chicago Auto Show this Thursday, kicking off a new chapter for the utility that has changed the face of law enforcement.
Since its introduction in 2012, Police Interceptor Utility quickly became America’s best-selling police vehicle, helping Ford capture 55 percent of the U.S. law enforcement vehicle market.
The 2016 Ford Police Interceptor Utility was developed with input from the Ford Police Advisory Board to handle the extreme rigors of police duty. In the business of fighting crime, performance and durability are king. Ford Police Interceptor Utility is the only Pursuit Rated midsize utility vehicle; Ford’s utility and sedan versions are the only Pursuit Rated vehicles with standard all-wheel drive.
“Our Police Interceptor Utility is the best-selling police vehicle in America because we have a unique relationship with our customers,” said Jonathan Honeycutt, Ford North American marketing manager for Police Vehicles. “By listening to the Ford Police Advisory Board, we have engineered a vehicle that officers love.”

Lenco Armored Vehicles Introduces the BearCat® Tactical SUV
Released by Lenco Armored Vehicles in October 2014
Lenco Armored Vehicles introduces the BearCat® Tactical SUV
Combines proven armor protection and performance in a lower profile variant
Pittsfield, MA – Lenco Industries, Inc., the global leader in the design and manufacture of armored police vehicles, announces the Tactical SUV, another variant of the popular BearCat® APC employed by military and law enforcement agencies worldwide. Without sacrifice to tactical functionality, Lenco has designed the BearCat® SUV to meet the need within Law Enforcement for a more inconspicuous armored vehicle in VIP and diplomatic protection.
The low profile model offers a higher level of protection and durability than a traditional up-armored SUV. Like all Lenco vehicles, the BearCat® Tactical SUV features military grade armor that offers true multi-hit protection and under body protection against hand grenades.
These life-saving capabilities are complemented by the many performance features that have made the BearCat® the most popular armored personnel carrier for law enforcement in the United States. These include an open floor plan that allows for quick and easy entry and egress, optimized seating, and customizable shelving and gun racks. In addition, the operators can engage when necessary with side and rear gun ports and a flush mounted roof hatch.
The SUV is built on a commercial truck platform allowing for most upkeep and maintenance to be performed at OEM dealers and truck centers, which greatly reduces operating costs versus other specialized armored vehicles. The related savings and durability can pay for the vehicle over its lifecycle when compared with less durable up-armored SUVs.
For more than 30 years, Lenco has developed life-saving vehicles for law enforcement, government and military. The BearCat® Tactical SUV is ideal for a wide range of tactical missions, such as transporting VIPs and safely moving SWAT teams without attracting unsolicited attention or creating panic. This vehicle allows tactical teams to have the armored protection and interior layout of a BearCat with a more covert appearance.
