The Only Ford You Don’t Ever Want a Ride in

By -


So, you get in trouble with the law and you’re expecting the typical bus to come a pick you up. Then something drives up that you were expecting. It’s a new Ford Transit.

Transit_PTV_2291_MRYou and your new friends are probably thinking this will be an easy break out since the Transit is so big and open. Well, you’re in for a surprise because this isn’t a normal Transit; it’s the new Transit Prisoner Transfer Vehicle (PTV) and one of the new Ford Interceptor Police Fleet vehicles.


“Transit PTV is the latest example of Ford’s deep commitment to helping provide law enforcement agencies with capable vehicles,” said Jonathan Honeycutt, Ford police marketing manager.


“This concept proves Transit is upfit-ready and designed to Built Ford Tough standards.” The Transit PTV starts off as an ordinary Transit Medium Roof, Long Wheelbase Transit. It stands at 100.8-inches tall, 148-inches long, and the ability to hold up to 12 prisoners in three separate compartments.
