The Ford Police Interceptor SUV has a larger ballistic panel inside the doors to stop common rounds that police would come in contact with. The panel provides NIJ level III ballistic protection.
Randy Freiburger, a Police Special Vehicle Engineer for Ford Motor Company, talks about the Interceptor’s bullet proof doors.
The doors were tested against an array of calibers.
5.56 M855 and M193
7.62×39 and .308
I am curious how much weight those ballistic panels add to the vehicle?
Update Note: I got a new email today about this and Ford says these doors will stop armour piercing rounds.
