1. Ford Crown Victoria P71 Interceptor
The Ford Crown Victoria is ubiquitous with police cars in the United States. Beginning in 1979, the LTD, LTD-S, and LTD models of the car began to see widespread use across the country. In 1992, the PPV edition of the automobile was deployed as a major upgrade for law enforcement and was succeeded by the Crown Victoria Police Interceptor (CVPI) model from 1998-2011. The car is powered by an upgraded version of the 4.6 Liter, SOHC V8, and is well-known for its high durability. The body-on-frame construction of the car makes it one of the most appropriate vehicles for police use. The feature allows repairs to be made to the automobile after an accident without having to straighten or conduct major repairs to the vehicle chassis. Although the car is no longer produced, Ford continues to maintain the majority of market share for police cruisers in the country.
