Wheel Tire Car Land vehicle Vehicle


The Blazer EV Police Pursuit Vehicle (PPV) has been recently spotted testing with a big Setina push bar.

Based on the range-topping Blazer EV SS, this particular Blazer EV PPV is certainly in early prototype form. Most of the vehicle is covered in camouflage, except for the front fascia. Speaking of the front, placeholder headlamps are placed in lieu of the regular LED coast-to-coast light bar, while a Setina push-bar prominently juts out from the front bumper. Police use these push-bars as a battering ram for fences and other similar structures, as well as to push (potentially disabled) vehicles off the road. Besides that, the front end appears to be missing additional PPV-specific lights.

Moving around to the side of this Blazer EV PPV prototype, we are able to clearly discern the spotlight mounted on the driver’s-side A-pillar. As for rollers, this prototype does appears to be rocking production-spec wheels and tires, with a set of five-spoke black wheels filling in the wheel wells quite nicely.

Out back, the entire rear facia is covered from view, although we are able to clearly see the (rather goofy-looking) placeholder taillights, as well as the rear wiper and shark-fin antenna.

Excellent. More police departments are shifting to Tesla Model 3 and Y vehicles as patrol vehicles. However, due to their low ground clearance Teslas simply aren't suited for rural police departments. I believe Ford is working on a police version of the F-150 Lightning as well for this reason. The local (for me) sheriff departments use both pickups and SUVs.
