Ford unveils a new heated software enhancement for its 2013-19 Police Interceptor Utility vehicles, and it’s available now in the United States, Canada as well as other countries around the world. How does it work? The software heats the vehicle’s interior until all the viruses inside are inactivated. It uses the powertrain / climate control systems to enable vehicles to elevate passenger compartment temperatures beyond 133 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes.

Once the software is activated, the vehicle’s powertrain and climate control systems work together automatically to elevate passenger compartment temperatures, while also warming up the engine to an elevated level. It automatically monitors interior temperatures until the entire passenger compartment hits the optimal level, maintaining it for 15 minutes.
