Overview

What's New
For 2007, the LX Sport model is gone from the Crown Victoria lineup, replaced by a Premium Sport Handling and Performance Package on the LX model, and a CD player and keyless entry are now standard. Daytime running lights and an alarm are now optional, and two new exterior colors are added to the palette.

Overview
The Crown Victoria (along with its near twin, the Mercury Grand Marquis, and its close cousin, the Lincoln Town Car has often been described as the last of the American V-8-powered rear-drive sedans. It now appears that V-8-powered rear-drive American cars are making a comeback-witness upcoming models like the 2008 Cadillac STS and Pontiac GTO. But while these cars use sophisticated independent suspensions, the Crown Victoria continues with its old-fashioned (but capable) solid-axle setup. So while the Crown Victoria may no longer be the last of the breed, it is still the last link to the Detroit rolling iron of yore. The Crown Victoria is not nearly as popular with private buyers as it is with taxi and police fleets, who appreciate the car for its simplicity, durability, and spaciousness.

The 2007 Crown Victoria is sold in standard and LX trim. Both feature seating for 6, a V-8 engine, a 4-speed automatic transmission, and a cavernous trunk, along with an array of comfort and convenience features including power windows, locks, and mirrors; air conditioning; and-new this year-a CD player and keyless entry. Last year's LX Sport model that featured front bucket seats in place of the standard bench, a stiffer suspension, and a dual-exhaust system that increased power slightly has been replaced by an option package that offers all of the same equipment. The 4.6-liter V-8 turns out 224 hp and 272 lb.-ft. of torque with the single exhaust, and 239 hp and 287 lb.-ft. with dual exhaust. EPA fuel economy estimates are 17 mpg city and 25 mpg highway. A flex-fuel version is also available that allows the Crown Victoria to run on either gasoline or an E85 ethanol blend.
