InterceptorCHP Captain Matt Guthrie and former commissioner Spike Helmick stop by Jay Leno’s Garage with five of the finest cop cars of the last 40 years – and the brand new Ford Explorer that will be hitting California highways soon.

According to a July 24th post on, “The West Valley Area received the first allotment of Ford Police Interceptor Utility Vehicle’s in the Southern Division. They will be out on the roads very soon.” (Thanks to LAflyer for the information and the photo).

The Ford Police Interceptor Utility will replace the Ford Crown Victoria as the CHP’s primary enforcement vehicle.
