Why do police use Ford Explorers?

Specs for performance. Performance specifications are another factor that explains 

why police cars may outperform the majority of private vehicles during 

 a pursuit. A 300-horsepower, 2.3-liter 4-cylinder engine is standard in 

the Ford Explorer for civilian use. Are Ford Explorers durable?

The Ford Explorer has maintained its reputation as a tough SUV since 1991,

with several models surviving up to 200,000 kilometres. However,

third-generation and fifth-generation design problems might only allow

 for 80,000 miles of travel. especially if it has a poor gearbox or

a problem with the back suspension.
