Ford's full-size Crown Victoria sedan carves out enough room in the cabin to haul a team of tall basketball players plus heaps of gear bags stuffed into the cavernous trunk. The rear-wheel driveline and a chassis with wheelbase extending nearly ten feet comes from a platform also used by Lincoln's elite Town Car.
There's ample power from a V8 rigged with high-tech hardware and tuned for low-torque output. The 4.6-liter Ford plant in standard application produces 224 hp. An optional performance package adds dual exhaust pipes and boosts output to 239 hp.
The three trim grades for 2006 are Crown Victoria Standard, uplevel LX and premium LX Sport, the latter with performance equipment added like an up-rated torque converter, monotube shocks and a rear air suspension. Side air bags are optional in 2006, along with TCS, a perimeter alarm device and a six-disc CD changer.
