COCONUT GROVE, Fla. — In the southern reaches of Florida, where palm trees and towering condominiums contend for space on sunny Atlantic beaches, Ford's most popular car label is not the national best-selling midsize Taurus, but a full-size sedan with an anachronistically regal name.

With its rear-wheel driveline and a spacious interior that seats up to six in comfort, Ford’s Crown Victoria scores with Florida's dominant age group, those plus-50 folks whose preferences in automobiles tend toward affordable value with lots of room for both cabin and trunk and grandkids.

Riding on a platform that traces back to 1979, the Crown Victoria still sells well enough to merit its continuance in Ford's line; among law enforcement agencies, it's the top choice in police cruisers, and among folks who still want domestic rear-wheel drive, it’s the least expensive full-size on the market. This year it’s been spruced up again to reduce production costs and to keep its aging buyers happy.

 

A cabin cruiser

This latest Crown Victoria actually adds cabin space through a subtle reshaping of interior bits and by adopting the twin Mercury Grand Marquis’ more formal roofline. It also adopts some of the Lincoln Town Car’s platform hardware.

The Crown Vic’s interior can be swaddled in leather and equipped to the hilt with luxury features.

The latest Crown Victoria also looks modern, even sophisticated, with an exterior scheme which projects a bold front hood with softly rounded edges and bright chrome grille. Shapely side panels feature an interesting flat shoulder stretched below windows to create shiny reflective surfaces in contrast against multiple body curves.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
