      Recently made Police interceptors (namely the Ford Crown Victoria) are not widely publicized in terms of civilian use, Although you can generally find them very easily being sold in most state auctions and some on actual car lots. But how does a cop car actually fair when being utilized as a civilian vehicle.

      I have owned a 2006 Crown Victoria state police interceptor witch was made for a supervisor since 2007. Now first thing to understand is the interceptor was generally made with 2 different engines. A V6 variant or a V8 variant. For the most part the V8’s are all employed for the state police and any towns that might have a major roadway running through them while the V6’s are mostly used in much more residential areas due


      to the lack of necesity to go over 100mph on back roads, let alone going over 120mph witch is about what they would make it to.

      Performance: - In terms of performance most police interceptors do pritty well. They all end up having much more torque then they do horsepower because for cops it is much more important to speed up fast then to have a high overall speed because at certain speeds during police persursutes, they will just end up sending the helicopter and let the suspect run outa gas. My 2006 Vick is special because it was a supervisors car. Its got the V8 in it but its been bored out even more and been programed differently. It pushes about 380 overall horsepower and about 480 lbs of torque.


      • Witch isnt much wen you consider it was 5,650 pounds. Most cop cars are steel reenforced and ontop of that mine is bulletproff, adding to the weight. The scaled down explination on the performance of police interceptors are they are beefed up but have to be because they are so heavy but that makes them safer and all of this stuff adds up to some headaches at the gas pump.

        Handling: Ok, the crown vick is no civic. I like to describe it as the ocean linear of the sedan worlds. It can be pritty interesting trying to get it around those tight corners. Once youve been driving it for a while you start to whip it around like it was a civic, but it does take some getting useto. O

        and when it comes to driving in the snow, i think its alot of fun. although im abnormal and to normal people its a huge pain. Getting traction is like pulling teethe and if youve ever seen a mustang go down the road in the snow, well the vick is alot worste then that.

        Saftey: - Safer car you can get, hands down. I mean its steel reeinforced and some are bullet proff, hard to get yourself killed in that.

        Overall: - I would take my Crown vick police interceptor over almost any car any day. Its big, powerfull, and can take all the abuse you wanna try and give it. and in the event of a crash, well youll be fine in a crown vick if you hit anything less then a semi, lets just say that.
