Police-Package Options and Costs

For all you folks wanting to know what goodies you can have on your 1998-2000 PI, here's the list. Each item is listed by name, option code, and price (believe it or not there a few things that are free... who would have thought Ford did anything for free). Some options are "Dealer Installed", and do not have a code, so these have the letters (DLR) in place of the code. Lastly, some options actually take money off the cost of a vehicle, and these items have a "Deduct" notation and the amounts are in parenthesis. Just for the record, these options are available for a car with a base price of $19,677.00 (State of Washington contract price).

Color Selection
The following are the current colors for the 2000 Ford PI, but I think they are pretty much the same for most late-model Ford Police-Package vehicles. Colors marked with a "*" are Clear Coat colors and are more expensive (of course).

For any of you who are looking at a two-tone paint job, or any color not listed here, you can special order a paint job but you must order at least five cars with the same paint job.

Other Interesting Information

During the NLECTC testing of the 1998 CV PI, drivers noted what seemed to be performance problems with the car, especially when making turns. It was determined that the car was working normally, but, the car's traction control system was decelerating the car in the turns.

The CV's traction control system is designed to remove power from the car whenever a loss of traction is "sensed". Needless to say, these systems are far more sensitive than your typical driver's senses, and may remove power at times that the driver doesn't want it removed. The NLECTC recommended that drivers turn the traction control system off when optimum performance is desired, and turn it back on in situations where traction is vital (rainy and snowy weather).
