If PDs wanted FWD cop cars, they'd already have 'em. GM tried to convince everyone that the Lumina (first) and then the Impala was a worthy replacement for, and in some ways superior to, the Caprice, and though they found homes, most cop cars ended up being Crown Vics. Now Ford wants us to believe the same thing about this warmed-over Taurus. Bullshit. A V6 is NOT a V8, no matter how hard they try to convince us otherwise. A smaller car is STILL a smaller car, even if they extend the passenger compartment into the trunk. Cop cars need a good-sized trunk. They carry a lot of gear. Gotta love Ford's enthusiasm, though. "The ultimate police vehicle?" My ass! What the fuck.
