  7. ST and "Raptor" British...

[YesAuto Police Car View] Foreign police cars are a bit like “other people's children”, and their painting and performance are often enviable. Recently, the British police have begun testing the new Ford high-performance police car.

Unlike the large-displacement police cars in the United States, most police cars in the United Kingdom are relatively “Buddha” models such as Ford Focus and Transit.

The two new police cars are the Fox ST and the Ranger Raptor. After being transformed by the Ford special vehicle team, they are covered with the Battenberg pattern of the British police car and a full set of police equipment.

The Fox ST police car uses a 280-horsepower 2.3T gasoline engine, which can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 6 seconds and has a top speed of 250km/h. It will be used to chase criminals who are driving away.

The Ranger Raptor is a high-performance version of the Ford Ranger pickup. It uses a 2.0T diesel engine with a maximum power of 214 horsepower and a peak torque of 500 Nm.

Ranger Raptor's acceleration and speed data are not outstanding, and its high performance is all reflected in the off-road-the chassis, tires and brakes have been fully strengthened, as well as the all-terrain system in the Baja rally mode.

Different from the road pursuit mission of the Fox ST police car, the Ranger Raptor police car will be mainly used for tracking in remote areas. Sand, mud and mountains are where it is used.

These two performance police vehicles will be rotated by police throughout the UK, the first to be adopted is the South Wales Police Department. Not surprisingly, they will soon appear in the British police convoy. (Wang Meng, Home of Wenzhou Automobile)
