2013 Interceptor vs Newer

Are there fundamental differences between the 2013 models and those after? I heard a lot of quirks were worked out after 2013, I also find it difficult to find 2014+ ecoboost models, does this correlate?

Thanks

Re: Considering 2013 Ecoboost PI

I've been looking for what you speak for over 3 years. This includes thorough internet research, which includes my OCD for continuously looking for updates on retail and auction sites, visiting police auctions and calling retail locations a bit too often. In all this, I have found only 2 vehicles t...

Re: New to forum. 13 police interceptor

Nice work!

These are definitely items people want to learn more about, may I ask where you sourced and learned all these operations?

Are you keeping it white? which engine?

Thanks

Re: About to pull trigger, any areas to look out for?

You should look to see if the PTU has the drain plug. It was added on the 13's at some point. If it does then a drain & fill is pretty simple and you will know if the fluid has cooked or still good. As long as the fluid is good then assume the PTU is as well. Many thanks, hopefully I can take it to...

About to pull trigger, any areas to look out for?

Long time lurker, quite possibly about to pull the trigger on a 2013 Twin Turbo. 160K miles. I want to take it to a mechanic to have them check out before buying. Any first hand knowledge of what I need to look out for, consider? I know the water pump is an issue, any other big pricey items to look ...

Anyone help identify these rear seats?

Hi, I've been searching for the right Eco-boost for a long time. I saw these seats and I suspect its a swap, but are these regular Taurus rear seats? They look different. Anyone know what it takes to swap in? $$$?

Many thanks.

This Ecoboost sold in 1 day, but this price must upset the curve.

I've been searching for months. Never seen anything like this before. A black Ecoboost, no damage, clean title for under 6k. This has me re-thinking all the retail models I see hovering between 11k-14k. https://web.archive.org/web/20170425205631/http://www.darlings.com/used/Ford/2013-Ford-Sedan+Poli...

Re: Question of Interceptor options.

Hi Mike,
Thanks for responding.
I'm looking for an Ecoboost that maybe was used undercover or another detail that generally didn't have lots of bodily fluids left in it.

But yeah this is proving a bit hard to find ANY Ecoboost that hasn't been a marked unit or some salvage history.

Question of Interceptor options.

I've been looking for a black Ecoboost Interceptor that is clean and not used as a regular patrol car where the random drunk or meth head was thrown in the back. I know I might be asking a lot there, but I'm slowly learning a bit about what to look out for. I see a Interceptors with either cloth or ...

Re: Cop car fascination?

I'd love a Ford SHO, but the Interceptor Ecoboost looks like a better deal, plus all the reinforcements, transmission upgrades, brakes, etc. Also I suspect people wouldn't cut me off as much or like the NYC assholes they are when I drive.

I've only been actively looking seriously for about 2-3 months. I recently found a twin turbo unmarked unit cloth rear seats and carpet! I have not seen this before, usually all unmarked ecoboosts have the hard floor (vinyl) hard vinyl rear seats and the shelf in the trunk. I really like this combo ...
