About Ford Crown Victoria
The Ford Crown Victoria (“Crown Vic”) is a full-size sedan produced and marketed by Ford. From 1992 to 2012, two generations of the model line were produced as the successor to the Ford LTD Crown Victoria. The Crown Victoria, Ford’s counterpart to the Mercury Grand Marquis, was the largest sedan marketed by Ford in North America, ranking above the Ford Taurus. The Crown Victoria Police Interceptor (1992-2011) was designed specifically for law enforcement use, while the long-wheelbase Crown Victoria sedan (2002-2011) was designed primarily for taxi cab fleets.
The Crown Victoria was built on the Ford Panther platform, which shared its chassis with the Grand Marquis and Lincoln Town Car. The three model lines were the only four-door sedans produced in North America with a full-length frame, rear-wheel drive, and a standard V8 engine from 1997 until 2011. While the vehicle had front and rear crumple zones, it was one of Ford’s products that did not have unibody construction for the entire generation.
Ford Canada produced the Crown Victoria alongside the Grand Marquis at St. Thomas Assembly in Southwold, Ontario, for the duration of its production. Prior to its closure in 2011, St. Thomas Assembly produced over 1.5 million examples (including Police Interceptors). The facility’s final vehicle was a 2012 Crown Victoria (destined for export to the Middle East). The Crown Victoria was not directly replaced after the model line was discontinued, with the full-size Ford Taurus serving as the next basis for Ford police cars.
