Used 2004 Ford Crown Victoria Natural Gas Review

Edmunds expert review

One of the last traditional rear-drive, V8, full-size sedans. As such it should remain a favorite of taxi cab drivers, police departments and those looking for a lot of room at a reasonable price.

What's new for 2004

The only noticeable changes are the elimination of chrome trim from the door handles and bumpers and the addition of a mini spare as standard equipment. Heated side mirrors are now optional and side windows receive the added safety of laminated glass. LX models lose standard features like a power passenger seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel and auto-dimming rearview mirror -- but they can be readded by ordering the LX Premier Group.
