The 2011 Ford Police Interceptor Utility Concept is a police vehicle manufactured by Ford based on the Ford Explorer.

It is powered by a 3.7L V6 engine which is more powerful than the 3.5L unit that powers the Civilian Explorer and has an all-wheel drive layout. Like its saloon counterpart, both sides of the vehicle feature vinyls that says "Police Interceptor" along the body against a black body paint.

It also uses 18 inch rims with centre caps and the interior comes with pre-installed police equipment including a console that has the "Police" on both sides.
