A Rugged F-150 for Rugged Jobs
JUN
11

When Ford unveils something new, there tends to be an interesting story behind it. In this case, it’s a new package for the new F-150, called Special Service Vehicle (SSV). Certainly raises a curious eyebrow with such a titillating name! The SSV Package allows the 2013 F-150 to become even more adaptable to unique tasks – yes, that pickup can indeed do more! If you’re not familiar with the SSV name, it’s a unique Ford package aimed at government, municipal and commercial fleets – law enforcement, fire-fighting and state park patrols, to name but a few.

Buyers of an SSV can configure their F-150 in in many configurations to meet their fleet needs. The interior, by the way, has a service-tailored layout. The seating is a 40/20/40 split bench seat; the center seat section is omitted. This creates extra space for in-cab installations, such as firearms.

An option package includes a high-capacity 220-amp alternator (to meet the notable electrical needs of these types of folks), and is available for the SuperCab and SuperCrew configurations. The SSV will have the fuel-saving six-speed automatic, and is available with either the EcoBoost® 3.5-liter V6 or the 5.0-liter V8.

Justin E Excellent! That would be a nice vehicle for any Police force. Either the Ecoboost or the V8 is still a great motor to put in it.

T C Cool, a police package F150! Since police vehicles have heavy duty suspension, brakes, frame, cooling system, etc maybe Ford will be nice and sell the police version to any civilian wanting to get their hands on one? Why should the cops always have the best cars? I'd also like to see Ford allow people to buy the police package Taurus as well.

James Joiner I like this idea but a mid size truck with diesel engine would be a much better option. Kind of like the WILDTRAK.

David E. Hale I don't like the app idea either. I read the article on Jalopnik earlier. Jalopnick won't let you comment on anything unless you join as well. My comment on this article is that I would take the V-8 over the EcoBoost since I believe the V-8 wil last longer with less maintainence

Sam P I actually owned a 1969 F-100 that was used as a police truck and was complete with grille guard, spotlight, and antennas.My father was police chief and deputy in a small town north of Tampa int he orange groves.I still have photos of it, and he used many other Ford trucks as police trucks until his death in late 2008.
