Ford Crown Victoria
From Ford press: Ford Crown Victoria is a sedan for traditional large-car buyers who seek the features offered in the American cars they grew up with — roominess, comfort, smooth ride, V-8 power and rear-wheel-drive handling. Size, safety and dependability remain hallmarks of the Crown Victoria, which continues to earn the government’s highest, five-star frontal crash rating for the driver and front passenger.
For 2007, Crown Victoria is offered in Standard and LX trim levels. New standard equipment includes an AM/FM audio system with a single-disc CD player, and remote keyless entry with SmartLock. A new Premium Sport Handling and Performance Package is available on LX models. Customers can also choose from an exterior color palette that has been freshened by the addition of two colors in the 2007 model year.
Crown Victoria is one of only a few large, rear-wheel-drive, V-8-powered passenger cars. It offers 106.4 cubic feet of passenger volume, and the trunk has 20.6 cubic feet of space. Besides generous helpings of power and space, the car provides an exemplary ride and notable passenger compartment isolation, thanks to its body-on-frame architecture.
Crown Victoria is powered by a 4.6-liter, single-overhead-cam V-8 engine that develops 224 horsepower at 4,800 rpm and 272 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm.
On the LX Premium Sport Handling and Performance Package, the free-flowing dual exhaust system increases engine output to 239 horsepower at 4,900 rpm and 287 pound-feet of torque at 4,100 rpm. All Crown Victoria models use an electronically controlled four-speed automatic overdrive transmission and electronic throttle control.
