2016 Ford Police Interceptor Utility Chicago Auto Show Debut

This year, in Detroit, Ford pulled the sheet off of a couple new performance vehicles, and although we’re not too sure if they will have any surprises similar to the Ford GT in Detroit, we do know of one model that will be making a debut at the Chicago Auto Show.
