Ford Motor Co., a longtime maker of police cruisers, is now offering a new cop car engine that boosts fuel efficiency, good news for cash-strapped police forces.

The 2-liter EcoBoost engine is available for special service police sedans that are not designed for high-speed pursuits. With this new engine cop cars will rate 20 mpg city and 30 mpg highway and still have 240 horses at their disposal. Ford says this new engine will save police forces thousands of dollars a year.

Pursuit cars will still be fitted with a 4.6-liter V8, that rate 14 mpg in the city and 21 mpg highway.
