The Ford Police Interceptor Sedan (Concept) is a concept car produced by the Ford Motor Company based on the Taurus platform. It entered production in late 2012.

It is powered by the same 3.5L Ecoboost V6 that powers the Taurus SHO and has an AWD layout. Both sides of the car feature vinyls that say "Police Interceptor" along the body against a black body paint.

Its grille is similar to the Crown Victoria Police Interceptor. It also uses 18 inch rims with centre caps; the interior has a console that has the word police on both sides and other police equipment.

The Chicago Police Department ordered several Police Interceptor Sedan and Police Interceptor Utility models.

Games

Need for Speed: World

The Police Interceptor Sedan Concept was made available in Need for Speed: World on February 5, 2013 as an A class car. A promotional rental code was released for all players on March 2, 2013, and allowed them to lease the vehicle for 24 hours.

It is described as sporting a "classic police livery with mean looking bull bars." It also stated to have "functioning cop lights and siren" meaning it is the first non-elite car to have an audible siren as well as the second to have the feature following the Dodge Viper SRT-10 ACR.

The car is best used in Pursuit Outrun as well as Team Escape due to a powerful nitrous boost and high weight. It has relatively good acceleration and is nimble in corners thanks to all-wheel drive. The top speed of the Police Interceptor is 205 mph (330 km/h) and 224 mph (362 km/h) with nitrous activated.

It is fitted with various tuned quality performance parts from different manufacturers, 2-star Skill Mods, and an aftermarket window tint.
