Police Responder Ford F-150 Quickest Cruiser Of Them All

  • Law enforcement testing shows F-150 quickest by far

  • Ford says acceleration crucial to emergency response times


Are you looking for bragging rights when it comes to the quickest police pursuit model? Ford says it has the ticket, but it’s not the vehicle you’re expecting. LA Sheriff testing data shows that the 2021 F-150 Police Responder is the quickest of the cruisers to get from 0-60 mph (100 km/h), 100 mph (162 km/h), and through the quarter-mile.

Crucial to the quick response of law enforcement is that acceleration time. Getting from their current location to the scene of the crime or emergency sooner is the desired goal. “Shaving even a few seconds off response times can make a big difference,” said Ford police brand manager Greg Ebel. “Whether responding to an accident on the highway or a distress call from somewhere off-road, law enforcement officers can count on 2021 F-150 Police Responder to get them there fast.”

Annual testing is done by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department as well as the Michigan State Police. The latter found that the Ford F-150 Police Responder could hit 60 mph in 5.3 seconds. That’s half a second quicker than any other model. To 100 mph, it was 0.8 seconds quicker than number two at 13.1 seconds tota. The top speed was up to 120 mph, 15 more than before.

Blame the standard 3.5L EcoBoost V6 and its 500 lb-ft of torque for that acceleration, more than any other pursuit-rated model. It also comes with four-wheel drive and a torque-on-demand transfer case that adjusts power front and rear for maximum traction. The same transfer case improves the truck’s lap times on the track, showing that it can better get from scene to scene in a hurry.
