I also own a Crown Victoria and my wife would rather ride in the truck. Only had two mechanical failures in 5 years, right brake caliper and A/C. Truck rides good on the road and style is very aerodynamic.
Rear fold-down seat is better than new Super Crews. Truck looks sleek and fast just sitting still, while new trucks look more rugged and boxy.
One improvement already made, more comfortable and intimate interior. Gas mileage could improve dramatically, offer more rear ends like a 3.37/1 for those that do not want a tow vehicle.
