I haven't driven one of the new ones yet, our unit just gets the old ones that have 80k+ on them and probably a few pursuits under their belt. We had one that was downright scary to drive and they finally retired it, the others aren't too bad but they definitely feel like they've been through the ringer.

I know that a few officers are driving Fusion/Tauruses in Columbia. I did also see somewhere that there was thought of putting an AWD Taurus w/turbos into the fleet. The only problem I can see with this is making sure all the officers learn how to drive AWD cars 'properly'. Because they DO handle differently.
I know the Taurus SHOs are quick. But I really can't see them holding up like a Crown Vic; NO Taurus has ever lived up to what it was supposed to be unless it was a SHO that had been VERY meticulously maintained. Which almost never happened. Ever.

we have all CVPI except for 2 unmarked chargers that were purchased for undercover/detective use and to try them out sort of.....
nowhere near enough room compared to the CV
we are going to the new Interceptors since the CV are being cancelled
I think they are engineered way better than the impala and I don't think they will have the same stigma of being a FWD piece of crap, 18" wheels, rotors are 60% larger...yeah baby
they are engineered/made for police use, not some warmed over regular car
I know we're getting one of the utilities (SUV) for our newest K9....but don't know about any others....I want one for the head/leg room
