AUGUSTA — Maine State Police are getting new cruisers beginning this summer.

Officials say the new vehicles will be Ford Police Interceptors, which are based on the Ford Taurus.

The Interceptors will replace Crown Victoria cruisers, which Maine State Police have been using since 1996.

Ford has stopped making the Crown Vics, replacing them with the new Interceptor line of cruisers beginning this year.
