The Grand Marquis is what most cars
today aren't: spacious and functional,
not "hot" and gimmicky. It's drive is
very smooth, expecially on the
highway. It's a true 6-passenger car,
unlike other pseudo-"full size" cars
that don't come close. Its huge trunk
gives you a lot of flexiblity, as long
as you're careful not to injure your
back (it depth makes for a hazard if
you're picking up something heavy).
The interior could use some refinement,
but not (we hope) at the expense of a
price increase, since VALUE is what
makes the Grand Marquis compete.
Size, smooth highway ride, power, value
pricing for a lot of included features.
