2013 Ford F-150 SSV

2013 Ford F-150 Police Interceptor has it where it counts

America’s favorite vehicle and the top selling commercial truck for 27 consecutive years, the Ford F-150, is now offered in SSV police versions with excellent no-charge content and options galore.

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.

Hi I work for a township and the officer I work with and I were talking about seeing the f150 police vehicles and were wondering if I could get a quote or if anyone has a price so we can try to get a grant to help purchase one and I need some info on where we could check one out?
