2008 Ford Crown Victoria LX Fleet 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
Just finished a 4,416.6 mile trip from IA to CA and my overall milage was 26.3 at 75MPH+. Took I-35 & I-80 out there then 101 to north CA and then i-80 home. Drove flatland and the high passes in the Mountins. I could not ask for a better car for the trip. Ford please do kill this car or it sister ships off. They are the best road trip cars around. Mine is a LX with the 224 hp single exhust and I never wanted for power in the hills.
Room inside for a big man like me. Quite ride. Power and decent gas milage.
Better cup holders, like what is put in the Town Car. A bit more aggressive tires for the turns.
