As law-enforcement agencies across the country prepare for the introduction of the all-new Ford Police Interceptor sedan and SUV, the automaker has rolled out a new series of action-packed YouTube webisodes that show the competition—and potential criminals—just what they’ll be up against.

The videos pit the new Ford vehicles against the Chevrolet Tahoe PPV and Dodge Charger Pursuit in a series of driving tests, in a variety of real-world conditions, with a specific focus on capability, durability, acceleration, handling and braking. And notably, all driving is done by veteran police officers, who also provide comments and opinions about the vehicles they’re piloting.

Now showing on YouTube are the following Ford Police Interceptor Official Test Drives:

* Test Drive 1—Performance & Handling: Officers tackle a special handling course in Ford Police Interceptor sedans with both the standard 3.5-liter V6 and the available twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6—making 365 hp and 350 lb.-ft. of torque—as well as the Interceptor SUV with its 300-hp 3.7-liter V6.
* Test Drive 2—Wet Pad: Ford’s Interceptors are joined by their rivals on a giant skid pad, as officers test each vehicle’s handling and control.
* Test Drive 3—Dog Bone: The Ford Interceptors show off the unmatched capability of their all-wheel drive systems in the “Dog Bone” gravel pit.
* Test Drive 4—City Pursuit: On a course designed to mimic the tight spaces and sharp corners of an urban setting, officers compare the acceleration, handling and braking of the Ford Interceptors with the Charger Pursuit and Tahoe PPV.
* Test Drive 5—Officer Protection: This webisode highlights how the next-generation Ford Police Interceptors are engineered to protect officers in the event of a crash—and help them avoid one in the first place.
* Test Drive 6—Purpose Built: The spotlight here is on the advantages that come with building two distinct Ford Police Interceptor models, on a single common platform, with both vehicles designed and engineered from the ground up to make the job easier for police officers.

“We set out to develop our new Police Interceptors to not only meet the current leader—our own Crown Victoria—but to exceed it and the competition,” said Lisa Teed, Ford Police Interceptor marketing manager. “As we prepare for one of the biggest launches in our history of developing police vehicles, we’re committed to remaining the nation’s largest provider. These videos prove our new vehicles are purpose-built, capable, and deliver the safety, technology and performance officers need to excel at their jobs.”
