2013 Ford F-150 Police Interceptor has it where it counts
Is there a single truck guy on the planet that would not want to drive the 2013 Ford F-150 in the picture shown here? Ford has long been a provider of rugged, commercial vehicles for police, fire, and national park applications. For 2013 Ford offers fleet buyers the Special Services Vehicle (SSV) package as a no-cost option.
F-150 SSV Standard Features
Standard on all SSV Ford F-150 trucks, again at no added cost, is the 220 amp alternator. This option is to help with all the bells and whistles – literally -that these vehicles have to operate. Sirens, light bars, on-board laptops, spot-lights, winches, and options like this all use a lot of power and the beefy alternator helps keep the battery on full charge to handle the load. The target user of this vehicle wants maximum comfort up front, and maximum durability and clean-ability in the back. For that reason the standard seating up front is 40/20/40 with the center seating section and the console deleted to allow room for gear. Think Shotgun or police communications equipment. The front seating surfaces are made from easy-clean cloth. Cloth is affordable, cooler, more breathable in the summer, and warmer than leather or vinyl in winter. In back the bench seat is made from vinyl thick enough to handle the yuckiest jobs and stay in one piece.
