Ford Taurus to replace Crown Victoria as police cruisers
For the longest time, the Ford Crown Victoria has been a criminal’s worst nightmare, not because the car has some sort of crime repellent, but because it is, by far, the most used police cruiser in North America.
It has to be mentioned that the Crown Victoria has been synonymous with police cars as much as hamburger and fries. But the model has been used for well over 30 years now so it seems that the model is fit and ready for the retirement home.
With the new Taurus, police officers will be getting behind the wheel of a car that isn’t as powerful as the Crown Victoria. But it’s not a pushover either. The car comes with a set of V6 powertrains, and combined with the Taurus’ reputation for being toughness and efficiency, makes it a formidable adversary for law breaking citizens across North America.
Leaving behind a legacy that saw it being used by over 85 percent of the 75,000 police cruisers being every year, the Crown Victoria rides off into the sunset to leave the criminal-chasing duties to the new Ford Taurus.
