Ford Crown Victoria
From Ford press: 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. Size, safety and dependability remain hallmarks, and Crown Victoria continues to earn the government’s highest five-star crash rating for the driver and front passenger.
Crown Victoria is available in Standard, LX and LX Sport trim levels. In six-passenger Standard and LX trim, the Crown Victoria offers 111.2 cubic feet of passenger volume. The trunk is the largest in its class, with 20.6 cubic feet of space. Crown Victoria’s low liftover height makes loading and unloading easy.
It is built in St. Thomas, Ontario.
Crown Victoria is powered by a 4.6-liter, single-overhead-cam V-8 engine that develops 224 horsepower at 4,800 rpm and 275 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm.
The optional Handling and Performance package, standard on the LX Sport, has a dual exhaust system that increases the engine’s performance to 239 horsepower at 4,900 rpm and 287 pound-feet of torque at 4,100 rpm. It also includes an uprated torque converter, monotube shocks, a rear stabilizer bar and rear air suspension.
Crown Victoria uses an electronically controlled four-speed automatic overdrive transmission.
