Ford Motor Co. recently debuted its new factory-installed "no profile" light bar. The bar is installed in the visor of the vehicle and, when activated, flashes red and blue light through the top of the windshield.

These visor lights aren't a totally new concept, and stealth isn't the only goal.

According to a Ford spokesman, it's also about safety. He said, "Today, agencies typically use aftermarket interior visor light bars that are somewhat bulky and can obstruct the field of vision -- especially for taller officers."

The feature is available on the 2017 Ford Police Interceptor Utility vehicles.
