The Ford Taurus Interceptor will replace the US police’s aging Crown Victoria cop cars, which is the first time the Taurus has been used other than in the Hollywood blockbuster.

Ford will build the new US cop car specifically for the police with a choice of 263- or 365bhp 3.5-litre V6 engines. Four-wheel drive will also be an option to help the new crime-buster on slippery roads.
