    If they are discontinuing it due to fuel economy as the article states, that would be very disappointing considering how pathetic the horse-power-to-engine-size ratio is. The Town Car has a 4.6-liter V8 that only gives you a little more than 200 horse power. This is probably why the car is more than 40 thousand and yet all this power is clearly unneeded. Instead of discontinuing the car, Ford should have the common sense to tone down the engine size and possibly make a different model for police forces. Most luxury cars only have a 3.0-liter engine which is already more than plenty power, so considering its over size and its horrible efficiency of power, they should simply make a better engine, which would not only make perfect sense but also make the car more affordable.

    I know the Flex wouldn't be as cheap to repair but I think its size would make it a perfect fit to replace the CV or TC.

    I don't doubt the longevity of these dinosaurs but rear legroom is not one of their stronger attributes.

    It's all good but it's not body-on-frame. They have four machines fixing police frames in LA alone. You can't fix unibody the same way, so the police departments are reluctant to jump on these fancy-lookin' but very delicate concepts and new models. It's just going to cost them a lot more unless it can be offset by fuel savings...

    Ford could do what GM did with the G8 and introduce the Australian Ford Falcon to the USA.
    Come to Sydney and see how many Falcon Taxis there are!
