2007 Ford Crown Victoria Review

The 2007 Ford Crown Victoria carries an MSRP of $25,445; $28,440 for the LX model. With seating for six occupants, these luxury sedans have measurable passenger volume of 106.4 cubic with and 20.6 for luggage. Both the basic model and the LX are powered by a 4.6 liter V8 generating 224 horsepower that delivers 17 mpg city and 26 highway. The LX, with a package targeted specifically at performance handling jumps to 239 horsepower with the same fuel economy performance. A four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive is standard on all models.

Standard seating on the Crown Victoria is a bench for three passengers upholstered in cloth. The driver benefits from eight-level adjustment via power controls. (Leather is available on the LX as are individual seats.) A standard audio combo includes a casette option. Personal safety in the vehicle is assured by retractors that manage belt energy as well as sensors to monitor the severity of a crash, the positions of the seats, and the deployment of the dual-level airbags. Bags in the side position are optional on the LX.

The 2007 Ford Crown Victorias are equipped with all-wheel brakes that include anti-lock technology and also employ the SecuriLock system to thwart theft and to allow for entry to the vehicle via a remote. Alarms monitoring the vehicle perimeter are optional. Locks on the rear doors to guarantee the safety of children riding in the backseat are a standard feature.
