    Segment Transcript

    I'm Laura Reynolds with CarProUSA.com. Ford Police Vehicle Brand manager Greg Ebel talks about the test results of America's only pursuit-rated pickup the 2021 Ford F-150 Police Responder. Ebel:  "The all-new 2021 F-150 Police Responder is the fastest police vehicle in terms of the acceleration from zero to 60, 0 to 100 and a quarter mile testing and it really is amazing this is pickup truck, right, you know compared to a police SUVs and some V8-powered sedans you know for some of the competition. So it really is a true testament that what we said as we revealed we had confirmed a new top speed of 120-mph with Michigan State Police testing and a lot this is because we have a new torque on demand  4X4 transfer case, so it allowed us to get the torque to all for wheels, right, and also the improvements to the 3.5 liter V6 EcoBoost engine, 400-horsepower, 500 lb.-ft. of torque, what it does is it provides with a faster vehicle,  it's safer, its going to handle better."
