Jay Leno drives the Ford Police Interceptor
When Jay Leno finally decides to hang up his talk show gig, maybe he might have a future as a law-enforcement official.
In the latest episode of Jay Leno’s Garage, Leno invited Gerry Koss, the marketing manager for Ford’s Fleet Operations in North America, and Lisa Teed, the marketing manager for the Ford Police Interceptor, for a little discussion about the company’s two new Police Interceptors.
The two vehicles – a sedan and a utility version – will soon be taking the reins from the venerable Crown Victoria as Ford’s official police vehicles. Ever the car enthusiast that he is, Leno didn’t waste time trying to get to know more about the future of Ford’s police fleet and with the help of both Koss and Teed, he was given a quick tour around the two vehicles and the myriad of unique features that they have that, unfortunately, will be exclusive only for police use. Yeah, no AK-47 holsters for any of us.
Later on, Leno got to spend some time at the LAPD’s official test track to give the Police Interceptor some burn while chasing down an old Crown Victoria Police Car. The comedian even admitted that it was totally fun to be on the other side of a car chase for once and we’ll probably agree with his sentiments if we ever get a chance to sit behind the wheel of these two bad boys.
