2011 Ford Crown Victoria LX Fleet 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
From the first gen mustang, the full size Bronco, the 90's taurus, the 7.3 diesel powerstroke, and now the Crown Victoria; Ford has developed a reputation for killing the winners...Why Ford didnt throw a couple bucks into an updated interior, along with exploring options such as offering this vehicle with the newer Ecoboost and Coyote V-8 engines will forever be a mystery.
Size: For a 4,000+ pound sedan, it doesnt feel like it.
Economy: After over 4k miles, Im averaging 26.5mpg.
Safety: Body on frame. (To those born after 1980, this means it has a boxed steel frame similiar to what most (real) pickups have today.)
Styling: For a 20+ year design, its sleek and long. 17" alloy wheels ad to a sporty look.
Dear Ford, Please bring the Crown Vic back!
1) Coyote V-8 (400+ hp @ 20+mpg) And or Ecoboost
2) Mild interior updates
3) Mild technology updates
