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.

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.

CROWN VIC HITTIN SWITCHES...2010

years to build this car to this point. Everything on this car is custom. It
has a ten switch air ride system, in other words its "bagged". it has labo
doors on the front. All door handles have been shaved and the doors now
open by remote. The grill and lights are all custom, as well as the
marauder black paint job. It has a compustar alarm coneected to a Nathan
Airchime train horn. The windows have been limo tinted and the interior has
all be replaced. This car was built for shows.

Ohio's hardest Crown Vic...PERIOD!!!!!
This is my 2001 Ford Crown Victoria police interceptor. I bought this from
a local police department and have been customizing it ever since. This was
the final video before i sold the car. It had a full ten switch air ride
set up. Some call this "bagged". other modifications include shaved door
handles, aftermarket sunroof, cuctom lights, flowmaster Exhaust, HID lighting, 22 inch rims, custom made
seat covers, a real Natahan Airchime train horn, Compustar alarm and much
more. This car was built for shows and attention to detail was great. I
believe this to be one of the nicest looking Crown Vics I have seen. Feel
free to leave comments with your opinions!
