Ford unveils 2021 F-150 Police Responder with improved top speed

Ford has unveiled the all-new purpose-built 2021 F-150 Police Responder and the order bank for the pickup has also been opened up. The new F-150 Police Responder gets increased capability, an improved 120 mph top speed, automatic four-wheel-drive mode with torque-on-demand transfer case which allows better handling on dry pavement and increased traction on wet surfaces. This helps patrolling officers transition between on- and off-road driving.

The pickup also offers greater towing capacity, payload capacity and interior passenger volume.
