"Police Vehicles from around the World" Who wouldn't want a Ford Super Duty-based SUV with a 116-inch wheelbase and a 19.7-foot turning radius? Let's not forget the most important part, which most early SUVs lacked-a diesel engine. The designers of the SandCat took advantage of all the positive aspects of the Super Duty. For example, the front suspension, front and rear axles, steering, and frame (shortened) are all from the Ford factory. Even the dash was left intact. This provides the new driver with a level of familiarity and shortens the time it takes for operator training. Oshkosh was also able to retain Ford's airbags and anti-lock brake system (ABS).
