The main reason, in addition to being big, powerful, and fast; is that the Crown Victoria is the last car built with a full frame construction. The body is attached to a frame, and not a unibody as most of today's cars are, where the body is integrated into a single unit with the chassis. This makes for truck like durability, the ability to take hard impacts and keep going. There is a solid frame that the body sits atop, that can take hard road and vehicle impacts, with minor damage, compared to a unibody car.
Power, room, price, dependability, handling, and the most important factor is RWD,(Rear Wheel Drive). Police want a large RWD vehicle. The choices are limited today. Because they're relatively reliable, durable, and cheap to maintain. That's the reason they're also widely used as taxis.
No, the 1983 - 1992 Crown Victorias used the AOD transmission and the 1993-1994 Crown Victorias used the AODE transmission, so they would be different. Sorry!
Try, I said TRY. They may not have the car for $500, but usually are around $700-$1200. Go to a used military or police shop. They are refurbished repainted crown victorias. Police use those...
Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor was created in 1992.
Assuming you're referring to a standard (manual) transmission, the answer is no.
While strong and reliable, the Crown Victoria's design dates all the way back to 1992 (the platform itself dates back to 1979) and was in serious need of updating. As such, Ford decided to phase out the Crown Vics altogether and replace them with a Police Interceptor version of the Taurus.
I BELIEVE it was the 2001 model year that Ford started using the PI heads ( Performance Improved heads ) on the Ford Crown Victoria
Crown Victorias are often sold at police auctions. Usually these vehicles have been driven at least 150 thousand miles in a very short while. On the other hand Police vehicles do come with extremely durable engines, transmissions and suspensions designed to withstand heavy use.
CVI means nothing in the world of Ford Crown Victoria's but CVPI stands for "Crown Victoria Police Interceptor".
1992 and newer Ford Crown Victorias had the 4.6 liter ( 281 cubic inch ) Single Over Head Cam V8 engine
Crown victorias are a popular car often used by law enforcement in the past. Deciding what to pay for a used Crown Victoria depends on things like how old it is, how many miles it has and the condition.

Ford Crown Victoria.
Our police cars are not black and white so they are just called 'police car' or 'cop car'. A: "the car can vary in its model. Some cop cars are mustangs, dodge chargers, ford expolrers, crown victorias, impalas, the malabu and traditionally the mustang 5.0. A slag term for police is 50, since back in the 80's they were commonly known to drive a 50 mustang. However, today most police will drive a crown Victoria or a impala depending on the funding for there district."
Crown Victorias are driven mostly by old people. Old people usually buy new cars. So, you can pick up an older Crown Vic that is in pretty good shape and at a low price because the is not much demand for them. My 1985 black 4 door crown vic I bought 1999 for $1800 In 2001 I had the engine rebuilt and she is still going strong. Best car I ever owned.
ENGINE SIZE IN THE 1995 FORD CROWN VICTORIA POLICE INTERCEPTOR IS 4.7 LITER.
Ford is specifically replacing the Crown Victorias with Police Interceptor versions of the Taurus.Additional: Chrysler is also strongly pushing their Dodge brand as a replacement. (personal opinion: the roofline is too low).Strangely enough although I strongly suspect that GM must be in the competetive mix somewhere I'm not aware of any strong bid for the emergency vehicle market by them.
