Ford and Chevy are competing again for the law enforcement market with new designs specifically built for police tasks.

As the Ford Crown Victoria production ends, Ford is revving up for the 2011 Ford Interceptor. See the full video.

Chevy is also racing to market with the Chevy Caprice Police Patrol Vehicle (PPV).

The Caprice is reported to be an alternative to the Chevy Impala and Tahoe.

Of the sedans, I like the appearance and design of the Ford Interceptor, but the Chevy Caprice over powers the Interceptor.

More to come on the sedans and the yet to be revealed Ford Police Utility Interceptor. Can it compete with the Chevy Tahoe? Many consider the Tahoe to be too expensive, but last month it was rated best for life-cycle cost.

Full disclosure – I’ve professionally driven previous and current versions of the emergency service Caprice, Crown Victoria and Tahoe. My favorite emergency fleet vehicle is the 2009-2010 Chevy Tahoe. There is more than adequate space, it handles well (unlike the previous truck style), it can take a hit, and its appearance is quite intimidating!

Carbon Motors has been touring the country with it’s new E7 Police Vehicle.

The E7 has some very specific features that law enforcement will salivate over, but will the unique customizations be enough for the anticipated high price tag?
