Ford to Offer Fire-Suppression Technology on Crown Victoria Police Cars

Ford to Offer Fire-Suppression Technology on Crown Victoria Police Cars
Aug. 7, 2003
The Ford Motor Company is making a move to protect and serve police officers after the deaths of at least 14 officers inside exploding police cruisers.

The company says it will start offering fire-suppression technology on the popular Crown Victoria police model.

The cars have been linked to numerous deaths in rear-end collisions that caused gas-tank explosions, including a fiery crash that killed Missouri Highway Patrol Trooper Micheal Newton.

Newton's passenger was critically burned in the wreck.

Ford insists the Crown Victoria is safe, and says the fiery explosions have happened at extreme rates of speed.

Ahh but this is in the new 2005 lineup not something that is to be retrofitted....atleast Ford has not stated publicly that they will retrofit this extinguisher system on older models.
