Ford is making headlines this week after announcing that their new interceptors will now be able to stand up to armor piercing rounds. This will be the first vehicle like it on American soil and seems to be a reaction to the times we are now living in.
Ford has also stated that this upgrade has come after discussing the idea with law enforcement globally.
The new materials making up this protections will be made up of a layer of ballistic grade ceramic and another composed of synthetic aramid fiber. The former being used to break up the round on impact.
Ford continues to be the leader in producing vehicles for law enforcement while also continuing to be at the forefront of safety in this category. These materials have already been put to the test by Michigan State Police officers and Ford plans to begin taking orders for these vehicles this month.
