Dearborn, Michigan – Lawbreakers will now have a more difficult time recognizing the profile of the best-selling police vehicle in their rearview mirrors. Ford will offer a factory-installed front interior visor light bar that provides a stealth appearance for police agency patrol vehicles.

“Today, agencies typically use aftermarket interior visor light bars that are somewhat bulky and can obstruct the field of vision – especially for taller officers,” says Stephen Tyler, Ford police marketing manager for North American fleet, lease and remarketing operations. “This extremely low-profile unit is fully integrated where the headliner and top of the windshield meet, for tremendously improved driver visibility versus aftermarket alternatives.”

Another advantage of the new interior visor light is that the dark shade band at the top of the windshield is replaced by clear glass when the light is ordered, providing superior color visibility and brightness.

When activated, it flashes bright – alternating red and blue bars through the top of the windshield. It can also be programmed for red/red or blue/blue operation.

The visor light features bright-white take down and scene capabilities for forward visibility, and can be set up to meet California Title 13 regulations. It can be programmed from full intensity down to 20%, and provide auto-dimming capability.
