2004 Ford Crown Victoria LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
Others rate fuel economy as poor yet this car will give you 35 mpg Cdn (28 US). Try it. Non interstate routes 60 mph (Ottawa to Orillia and return) passing normally, booted it twice and got 34 mph. Amazing car and it's about as fast as a Hemi PU truck. Pricing is fantastic. $20,000 Cdn for a $41,000 car a year old and about 20,000 miles. Look at the whitest model and you will see one of the most beautiful cars around plus others will pull over and let you pass. Wearing a hat helps. There is nothing like the sound of a V8 as you all know.
Size, V8, dual exhaust, comfort, quiet ride, and burning rubber.
Keep the 4.6L and up it to 315 hp which shouldn't affect fuel mileage.
