Keep in mind that Ford still uses the Interceptor engine. Many newer versions are rated at 250hp with a limited top speed of 120mph. Previous versions could reach 150mph. Some newer options include a High Performance V6. There are many departments turning to smaller vehicles such as Pontiac Vibes, Toyota Matrix/Prius and other econo cars have proven beneficial as well. The Dodge Charger cruiser has a horsepower rating of 368hp with the 5.7 Hemi, while their 3.5 V6 reaches 250hp and can reach 160mph. Our department has a Crown Vic 3.8 V6, 2 Jeep Liberty's, a Ford Explorer and a Ford Expedition. All but one of the Liberty's are equipped with extra options for the job.

The interceptor isn't an engine anymore. It isn't like the olds days where for instance there was the pontiac Le Mans with the 427 "interceptor". Today the engine is the same, the only difference is the tuning.

I like the people who answer the original question, and don't bother to look at the 162 other posts, or at the date of the OP.

"how fast do cop cars go?" is not the best question considering how many different types of police cars there are out there.

It was the best question at the time of the query. Do you wish to make something of it, friendo?

The year you own.



But really, there was a crowny for auction the other day here, and I nearly went for it. But then I thought, why?




And I decided not to.

I had previously owed a toyota mr2. Fully built motor upgraded turbo exct.... Previously Dynoded at around 400hp. I Live in new york and a bunch of us were coming from a meet and we were on state thru way doing around 90 cursing. Saw a state trooper suv and just let the hammer down. At around 167 the state trooper truck pulled to my quarter panel and looked down at me and shook his head. I nearly shitted my pants.
