After debuting the new 2013 F-150, Ford is now offering a new F-150 Special Service Vehicle (SSV) Package aimed at government, municipal, and commercial fleets. The package will be offered for both SuperCab and SuperCrew configurations in both 4x2 and 4x4 models and can be ordered with either a 5.0-liter V8 or 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine combined with a fuel-saving six-speed automatic transmission.
The Ford F-150 equipped with the SSV package will be optimized for driver comfort, and has the seating package reduced by 20% in order to offer maximized space for in-cab aftermarket equipment such as law enforcement communications and firearms installations. The central console is omitted as well, creating even more space.
The seats for the driver and the first-row passenger are upholstered in easily cleaned cloth, while the second row seat is covered completely in rugged, durable vinyl, ideal for law enforcement use or work-crew transport. Also, depending on customer’s wishes, the model can be equipped with heavy-duty tires, 4x4 skid plates and interior convenience content.
