Ford recently unveiled its 2023 F-150 Lightning Pro Special Service Vehicle (SSV). The F-150 Lightning Pro SSV is designed to handle specialized departmental needs outside of pursuit situations, such as assisting at an accident or crime scene or giving departments the ability to tow a boat or trailer. Purpose-built features from F-150 Police Responder® include:

  • Police-grade heavy-duty cloth seats with reduced bolsters to help holstered officers enter and exit the vehicle more easily
  • Built-in steel intrusion plates in the front seatbacks.
  • Available red/blue, amber/white roof-mounted LED warning beacons
  • An upfit-friendly reinforced instrument panel top tray for easy mounting of police equipment
  • Easy-to-clean vinyl rear seats and vinyl flooring

Standard features include:

  • Interior: 12-inch digital cluster screen and 12-inch landscape-style touchscreen on the center stack 
  • Exterior: Mega Power Frunk gives officers 14.1 cubic feet of lockable cargo area in the front and offers easy access for upfitters to locate a 220-amp DC-DC power source
  • Targeted performance and capability: 452 horsepower, 775 lb.-ft. of torque5, 7,700-pound towing capacity6 and 2,235 maximum payload7 with a standard-range battery, and sub-four-second 0-60 mph acceleration4, 580 horsepower, 775 lb.-ft. of torque5, and 10,000-pound towing capability6 with the extended-range battery
  • Technology: Intelligent Range, SYNC® 4, over-the-air Ford Power Up software updates and Ford Co-Pilot360 technology, including Automatic Emergency Braking and Blindspot Information System (BLIS®) with Cross-Traffic Alert8

In addition, as part of Ford Pro’s platform of connected vehicles, software and services, the targeted zero-emissions police truck comes pre-configured to connect to a department’s existing fleet of Ford and non-Ford internal combustion engine and battery-electric vehicles, chargers, and fleet management software. When used together, police departments can proactively manage when vehicles are charged and serviced, resulting in potentially lower operating costs and improved uptime.

  • Available Ford E-Telematics™10 which delivers manufacturer-grade information, insights and solutions on potential solutions on fuel management, vehicle health and more
  • Established network of more than 650 electric vehicle-certified Ford Commercial Vehicle Centers across the United States, offering sales, service, financing and charging solutions, as well as 2,300 Ford electric vehicle-certified dealers.
  • Consultative services related to charging installation and operation, data management and digital services
  • Ford Pro, through its commercial lending arm FinSimple, offers flexible financing options for municipalities for vehicles as well as for charging solutions including depot installation, hardware and software to assist in the transition to electrified fleets
