Each year, the Michigan State Police test new vehicles to determine which manufacturer offers the best police vehicles. The tests are taking place at the Grattan Raceway in southwest Michigan, and by 2021, 4 motorcycle models and 11 different vehicles have been tested. They were compared in terms of acceleration, maximum speed, lap times, and so on.
Recent testing has shown that the 2022 Ford Police Interceptor Utility 4WD is the fastest ICE police car available. The car is based on the Ford Explorer and is powered by a 3.0-liter V-6 twin turbocharged engine producing 400 hp. The car accelerates to 96 km / h in 5.5 seconds and accelerates to 160 km / h in 13.5 seconds. Ford Police Interceptor Utility 2022 had a top speed of 238 km / h.
Rear-wheel drive Dodge Charger Pursuit with 380 hp V8 engine was 0.7 seconds slower when accelerating to 96 km / h and 0.6 seconds slower when accelerating to 160 km / h. At the same time, the Dodge Charger Pursuit was only able to accelerate to 223 km / h.
The most interesting of the vehicles tested was the Ford Mustang Mach-E, which is based on the Mach-E GT. The electric car accelerates to 96 km / h in 4 seconds and to 160 km / h in 11.9 seconds. This makes it significantly faster than the petrol 2022 Ford Police Interceptor Utility.
However, tests revealed a major problem: after 18 laps on the test track, the battery charge dropped by 30%.
