BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - This morning, the Bakersfield Police Department said their brand new patrol cars are even better than those old Crown Vics.
The police switched to Ford Interceptors a few weeks back and officials said they're based on the Ford Taurus.
Officials said the reason for the upgrade is because Ford stopped making the Crown Victoria.
Unlike the old cars, the interceptor has all-wheel drive, quicker acceleration, better handling and better gas mileage.
Right now, there are only seven on the road, but you can expect to see more in the coming months.
