The order was placed by New Holland Auto Group and will be a 2021 Ford Explorer (Police Interceptor Utility AWD), lighting and command box outfitting will be down by 10-8 Emergency Vehicle Service (New Holland), and lettering to be done by Tam Artz Design Studio (Thorndale).
The lighting will be a full undercover package with all forward facing lights having a scene override function, duel sirens (1 Standard & 1 Powercall), Gamber Johnson center console box with armrest, custom rear aluminum command cabinet with brackets for airpack, extinguishers, and hooks.
