What’s New for ’12
The new Interceptor replaces the aging Crown Victoria. It is available in both a sedan, based on a modified Taurus, and a utility vehicle, based on a modified Explorer.
The sedan is powered by a base 3.5L V-6 in either front- or all-wheel-drive configurations, or the 3.5L twin-turbo EcoBoost V-6, which is available only in all-wheel-drive.
The utility vehicle is powered by a 3.7L V-6 with standard all-wheel-drive. All three engines are more powerful and fuel efficient than the 4.6L SOHC V-8 engine they replace.
