Ford reported that it now offers a new, factory-installed front interior visor light bar for police agency patrol vehicles.
The front interior visor light bar enables a stealth appearance for police agency patrol cars.
“Today, agencies typically use aftermarket interior visor light bars that are somewhat bulky and can obstruct the field of vision – especially for taller officers,” said Stephen Tyler, Ford police marketing manager for North American fleet, lease and remarketing operations. “This extremely low-profile unit is fully integrated where the headliner and top of the windshield meet, for tremendously improved driver visibility versus aftermarket alternatives.”
When the light is ordered, the dark shade band at the top of the windshield is replaced by clear glass, providing superior color visibility and brightness. The light comes with a limited warranty and maintains the spacious interior feel of the newest generation of Ford Police Interceptor. When activated, the light flashes brightly with alternating red and blue bars shining through the top of the windshield. The light bar can also be programmed for red/red or blue/blue operation.
The visor light offers bright-white “take down” and “scene” capabilities for improved forward visibility. It can be set up to meet California Title 13 regulations. The visor light can be programmed from full intensity down to 20 percent brightness, and features an auto-dimming capability.
The LED-based interior visor light is available to order now on the 2017 Ford Police Interceptor Utility.
