I now have a 2004 Grand Marquis as my daily driver. You can see that cars 0-60 run on my channel. I got this as a rental when my '03 Impala got backed into by my neighbor. I only had this rental for a few days and I absolutely fell in love with Crown Victoria's after that! They are so spacious and comfortable, and get decent MPG for being a larger V8. Not incredibly fast, but not too slow either for such a large vehicle. I also have a few P71 videos on my channel that I test drove. Thanks for watching!

Chevy vs. Ford Cop-Car Thrash Battle! Roadkill Episode 12
On this episode of Roadkill, Freiburger and Finnegan are out to discover
which used cop car they like best, the Chevy Caprice 9C1 or the Ford Crown
Victoria Police Interceptor P71. Of course you expect nothing but the most
professional, scientific analysis from these guys, and that includes a day
doing donuts and bashing into stuff on pavement, tire explosions, a road
trip to the desert, camping, thrashing on dirt roads, and a finale that
just might create a new form of low-buck off-road motorsport.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.

1990 Ford LTD Crown Victoria Start Up, Exhaust, In Depth Tour, and Test Drive
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 1990 Ford LTD Crown
Victoria I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior
of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting
unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the
details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A
thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
2009 Mercury Grand Marquis Road Test
2009 Mercury Grand Marquis LS
Engine: 4.6 liter SOHC V8 (224 horsepower/275 ft. lbs. of
Transmission: 4-speed automatic w/OD
Rear Wheel Drive
City/Highway MPG: 15/23
This is a full road test of my mom's 2009 Mercury Grand Marquis, to show
how it performs in different situations, and to identify any problems that
may exist. I would normally do this after having the car in the shop for
repairs, but in this case I am driving the car around just to get a better
idea of how it feels on the road.
I drove it for about 2 hours and came away very impressed. It is
comfortable, refined, solid, and very agile. With only 224 horsepower, one would think
that it's underpowered compared to its V6 competitors. It's not. The
torquey V8 will pin you to your seat when gunned from a dead stop, and once
you're up to speed, there is always plenty of power in reserve. The big V8
has a deep, burly muscle car sound when revved, but at low RPMs it is muted
and unobtrusive in the cabin. The 4 speed automatic isn't much of a
handicap with the V8's torque curve, although it prefers not to downshift
into 1st or 2nd unless you mash the pedal to the floor. If you drive with a
light foot, and keep RPMs below 2000, you can easily attain 20+ mpg in
everyday driving situations. On the highway, the car is very efficient, due
to its tall overdrive gear that keeps the RPMs low.
The four wheel ABS disc brakes provide adequate stopping power, with
reasonably good pedal feel. Stopping distance is short in an emergency,
although the front end dives toward the ground.
The Marquis handles very well for a big car, even though it is not equipped
with the Handling Package (this option was discontinued around 2007). In
hard cornering, body roll is minimal and the Michelin tires provide plenty
of grip. The rack and pinion steering setup leaves feel somewhat numb, but
it's also pleasantly light and very accurate (especially on the highway).
Mercury obviously wanted to leave some "slop" in the steering, so the old
folks won't think they're driving a Ferrari :) If you must throw the car
around, it is safe and predictable, and can be quite fun for a boat.
Comfort is where the car really shines. The ride is very smooth, and gives
you the feeling of "floating" over bumps. This is great on the highway,
where little road imperfections are ironed out, but not so good on bumpy
back roads. If you hit potholes or man hole covers, the car pogos up and
down a couple times before settling. I enjoy this type of ride, but many
people do not. Inside, the car is very quiet, and road noise is minimal.
The leather bench seats are supremely comfortable and roomy, even after a
couple of hours.
Overall I am really pleased with how the car drives, and it just happens to
be a car I would consider buying used.
and all the Panther platform cars that have been discontinued.
The song at the beginning is Cradle of Love by Billy Idol, one of my
favorite 80s songs.
2006 Ford Crown Victoria LX Sport Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we will take an up close and personal in depth
look at the 2006 Ford Crown Victoria LX Sport. A more sport oriented
version of the body on frame V8 RWD car we've all become familiar with. It
can be thought of as similar styling of a modern impala SS from the 90s.
More closely related to Mercury's Marauder without the cobra V8. Dual Exhaust, air ride suspension with tuned
springs and a sport styled interior, quite the awesome combo for fans of
these legendary vehicles! During this presentation, we will take a 1st
person look at what the car is all about beginning with the start up,
performance data, fuel economy, the occasional track data, and build
quality. Also, I will teach you how to use most of the interior and
exterior features in a detailed fashion, that before, you could only get
from going to a dealership yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight
key styling and unique differences about the vehicle, any available
options, and of course it would not be an enthusiast car video without the
good ole engine portion with rev and Exhaust note with interior and exterior
perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE
CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will find in depth reviews/tour of
automobiles from all over the world, presented in a more detailed fashion
than ever before. Basically, this gives the viewer the chance to view the
most detailed 1st person look you can get without going to an actual dealer
yourself! Every video is consistent in the way I present so viewers know
what to expect in my presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same
respect whether a 1960 Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini
Aventador. I film all types of vehicles from past, present, and future
while broadening the knowledge of the automotive enthusiast. You will see
everything from vintage, brand new, exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very
proud of this channel and have built it up from amateur videos years ago to
what you see today. I wanted to share my love for the automotive world with
the rest of the world. Be sure to explore the massive video variety, have
fun and enjoy The Driver's Seat of YouTube! FIND ME ON THE OFFICIAL
