Just my .2 cents

I'm not a woman either, and I'd be happy with a Taurus; I've owned 2 of them in the past. *My* $.02 (2 cents).

I like it. I would have set up the lights differently and would like to see how the console is set up, but I like it.


And yes, I have balls, just am secure in my sexuality.

I am secure with my sexuality but frankly i just would not fit in that small car especially since im already a big guy then we use tactical outer vests by PointBlank and they are mandatory which makes me even bigger. sooooooo yeah hell no i would not get in that car even if i liked that car. I will stick with my Patrol Tahoe. But i will say this i do like the install looks cool :)

Not a bad looking install at all. The lights on the back deck do differ in shade from the uppers, but they're still blue to me. HLF is weak (if that's actually what it is,) and one less LAW in the tail-lights would clean it up some, IMO.

Have you ever actually seen one in real life? Since when are they small cars?

I think it's just normal halogen headlights with a projector-style lens. (My uncle has a Prius with HID headlights that use a reflector style more typical of halogen headlights, with additional halogen highbeams)

Pretty cool ride. I had a 1989 Taurus as an unmarked dick car. I liked it. The newer ones are so much nicer, though. My "high tech" light set up consisted of a blue Fireball, wig-wags, and a remoted Federal Interceptor mounted in the trunk. My cell phone was in a hard shell briefcase! It cracks me up when everyone is critical of the warning capacity of a car like the one here. We couldn't have even imagined a set up like this back in the day!

Well im giving the benifit of the doubt to the crown vic and im pretty much guessing this car is not anywhere close to as big as the crown vic. So if im correct not saying that i am correct but if i am YES i do think it is probly a small car.

It looks like Ford is discontinuing the CVPI so I guess its a smaller car or a SUV. I think most Departments will go with a smaller car.

The CVPI has a wheelbase a whopping 1.8 inches longer and 1.3 inches wider than the newer Taurus.

I would drive a taurus anyday. I've driven a 2002 taurus SEL Sport 24V. That thing performs well in every type of road condition (snow, ice. etc). I actually feel safer and never have had a car drive better in the snow. The 24V also gives it a nice amount of pep (same motor that is in the V6 mustang).

I love all the assumptions based on what people perceive to see!


______________CVPI____NGPI


Width_________78.3_____76.2


Heigth_________58.3_____61.4


Length_________212.0____202.8


Wheelbase _____114.7___112.9


Headroom______39.5_____39.0


Legroom________41.6_____41.9


Shoulder________60.6_____57.9


Hiproom________57.1______56.3


HP_____________250_____280/365


Engine_________4.8l, V8____3.5l V6/3.5l Ecoboost V6


So, the NGPI is within basically an inch for all the interior dimensions, and has a more powerful engine, is available in AWD, and will get better MPG-but its a "girls" car?@?@!

IMO, I love the new design of the Taurus, I think it's a 110% improvement. It's so sleek and sporty looking, I definitely think Ford is headed in the right direction.


For the "big guys" out there who don't think they can fit into it, thats fine--that's what they make Expeditions for.


I think it's pretty comparable to the Crown Vics and is going to be a suitable replacement for its purposes.

It'll be available in front or all wheel drive, which will both be substantially different in high-speed driving than the rear wheel drive of the CVPI.

Guys, I can tell you straight up. Both the Taurus and the Escape are from dept's located in Louisville KY. I have been in both of these cars. The Taurus is a Sgt's car and has no cage, if it were to have one there would be no way I could get my 6'2 250lbs in there. The Escape is a Hybird, and I was told by the guy who did the install that it was a total B""""h to find space for the equipment.

You were in a civilian Taurus though. The police package is designed to have a cage, which I'm sure will provide enough room.

You can't compare a sedan to an SUV! Now, if you were to complain that an Expedition doesn't have enough room for you, so you'd have to stick with your Tahoe, that's one thing. I'm guessing you have a Tahoe to begin with because you couldn't fit into a CVPI or Charger, right?

Tell your install guy to buy radio consoles that are made for the escape. Our supervisors drive the hybrids, and while I do not care for them at all, all our police gear fits.
