Since this vehicle is heavily recognized as a Police Interceptor, Ford has constructed the vehicle with the finest quality and durable materials to power it through stressful situations, all the while not sacrificing anything in performance. This is also a six seater vehicle that is used as a family car, so expect increased cabin space and roomy interiors.
Like its 2007 counterpart, this too lacks in quality when it comes to its interior design and features.

Technological features are standardized with a good quality audio system, navigation and possibly even connectivity tools such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. For the price the 2016 Ford Crown Victoria is offered at, we certainly cannot complain about its lack of features on the inside.
