2005 Ford Crown Victoria LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
This is a brand new 2005 Police Interceptor with the 250 hp engine. Quick midrange performance, but slower off the line due to the curb weight. Outstanding response and handles like it's on rails. Very well balanced. Spartan interior but very comfortable buckets with power adjustment. Dual exhaust has a nice sound but is subdued at the same time. Same as the LX Sport except for the 11 hp increase.
Handling and passing acceleration. Comfortable seating with nice visibility.
More horsepower for the cops is needed. Put the Marauder/Mustang GT DOHC 4.6L engine in it, for an additional 50 horses. This is a heavy car.
