SEDRO WOOLLEY, Wash. (April 18, 2016) -TruckVault Inc., the world's leading manufacturer of secure in-vehicle storage solutions, offers a full suite of customizable models designed specifically for the 2016 Ford Explorer Police Interceptor model. One of the most popular design features is TruckVault's unique Lift System. The design gives full access to the vehicle's spare tire while providing law enforcement professionals with a safe and secure storage solution, ensuring their gear always ready for duty.
Law enforcement agencies around the United States are converting their patrol fleets to the new Ford Police Interceptor version of the Ford Explorer. It has become one of the most popular SUVs on the market. The Ford Explorer presents a challenge for lockable storage in the cargo area due to the placement of the spare tire and its role in the rear crash safety requirements for the vehicle.
Utilizing an innovative bracket installation system, TruckVault's Lift Technology allows placement of a full-sized TruckVault unit in the Explorer while retaining quick access to the spare tire without hassle.
The TruckVault Lift System uses air-assisted cylinders to aid in lifting the entire unit out of the way, allowing access to the spare tire without removing the TruckVault. The simple design with an all-steel construction is engineered for heavy service to last the life of the vehicle. TruckVault can customize the size, number, and orientation of the drawers of the unit to create virtually any configuration.
"The importance of lockable in-vehicle storage has never been more prevalent. Police officers are increasingly becoming targets of crime, including theft," said TruckVault Sales and Marketing Director Don Fenton. "Additionally, the duties of police officers are changing; officers are now cross-trained for many different roles and need to carry higher-level weapons in their vehicles. These weapons need to be secured and out of sight while not in use - yet handy."
The Lift System is compatible with all Ford Explorer models 2011 and newer. Base unit MSRPs begin at $495 for the Explorer PPV Pursuit and $595 for the civilian version.
