Last Ford Crown Victoria heading to…

The Ford Crown Victoria and Mercury Grand Marquis have finally been laid to rest, leaving many people throughout the GCC in panic mode. I mean, what would some do without a Crown Victoria in their garage? Some families have even owned every generation of the car from when it was first produced back in 1979! The last hoorah version of the car to leave the production line was a white model with a special interior package, destined for the shores of Saudi Arabia.

    Well, Ford want to stop it for some reasons. For sure they planning (and already have) more ecofriendly cars. Maybe they need customers to stick with the dealer for maintenance and repairs cos these cars are well known to mechanics thus customers may never visit the dealer after the car delivery, but for the new cars they will for at least one year, maximizing Ford profit in these hard days. Of course other reasons are there.

    @Kuwaity: Just to add to what you said, other than eco-friendly reasons, it’s important to mention that Ford are taking their brand in a more technologically-integrated direction (e.g. alliance with Microsoft; Ford Sync), leaving no room for the aging Crown Victoria / Grand Marquis.

    @Sinful eye’s: I’m also amazed by the re-sale value of these cars. Their simplicity and reliability are the key reasons for this. Can you imagine how strong the re-sale value will be once people truly realize that production has stopped? Might be a good investment strategy lol

    Funny how people here in the States haaaate this car, but they’re the perfect Chauffeur cars in the khaleej. If they only had filtered air condintioning systems. (Fail.)
