DETROIT, April 7, 2010; Fleet managers from throughout North America will get the opportunity to view Ford's new Police Interceptor at NAFA's 2010 Institute & Expo in Detroit, April 24-27. The Police Interceptor, which was first unveiled in March, will exceed the durability, safety, performance, and fuel economy of Ford's Crown Victoria, the industry standard for nearly three decades. Ford's all-new Police Interceptor sedan will be showcased on the expo floor at NAFA's 2010 Institute & Expo in Detroit.

The new sedan was designed to handle the rigors of police work, including industry-leading powertrain, safety, and technology innovations. It will replace the Crown Victoria when production of the Crown Victoria ends in late 2011.

"Police nationwide asked for a new kind of weapon in the battle for public safety, and Ford is answering the call with a purpose-built vehicle - engineered and built in America - that's as dynamic as it is durable," said Mark Fields, Ford President of The Americas, who will be one of three Keynote Speakers for this year's Institute & Expo.

Along with Fields, the Detroit Three will be represented by Peter Grady, Vice President - Network Development & Fleet of Chrysler Group LLC, and Robert A. Lutz, Vice Chairman of General Motors. Lutz, who is retiring on May 1, will be giving one of his last public speeches in a long, illustrious career in the automotive field.

To develop the all-new Police Interceptor, Ford engineers worked hand-in-hand with Ford's Police Advisory Board of law enforcement professionals, which provided input on key vehicle attributes such as safety, performance, durability, driver comfort, and functionality. The Board includes several NAFA Members and has had a strong NAFA presence throughout the years.

"Ford remains committed to leading the police vehicle market, and our new Police Interceptor demonstrates how much engineering and innovation we're willing to invest to address the unique needs of those who protect and serve communities throughout America," Fields said.

The 2010 Institute & Expo coincides with the rebirth of the American car industry and marks the first time in more than 20 years that NAFA has held its annual conference in Detroit. Fleet managers from every segment of the industry - public safety, government, and corporate - will be in attendance to take advantage of more than 60 hours of fleet training, education, and workshops. In addition to Ford, the expo floor will be packed with over 200 exhibitors - a literal who's who of the industry.
