Ford Crown Victoria 2011
The Crown Victoria is among the last big, full-frame American cars with a V8 and rear-wheel drive. A thrashy 4.6-liter engine provides good acceleration with substantial trailer-towing capability. It offers an absorbent but jiggly ride. An available performance-and-handling package provides improved handling and ride control. The Crown Victoria also boasts three-across seating front and rear, as well as a huge trunk. Still, the rear seat isn't as roomy as one might expect. This model was restyled for 1998 and also received a number of suspension refinements. 2003 models had a revised suspension and steering system. Handling, though, still felt ungainly
