We already wrote about the possible comeback of the 2019 Ford Crown Victoria. And while we wait for the official release of this iconic car, some rumors are already speculating about the 2020 Ford Crown Victoria. The third generation is on its way according to speculations. However, it is yet unclear if 2019 is delayed or we could see both models in the near future.
Mostly known as a police interceptor car, Crown Victoria is a very popular civilian choice. New Crown Victoria will offer a very simple exterior design that will suffer plenty of changes. The interior was perhaps the highlight of the outgoing model and it is one of the best interiors in the segment. Drivetrain options are not available, but the arriving model could use a 2.0-liter EcoBoost or powerful V8 engine. Furthermore, a new platform with the front-wheel-drive setup is on the cards.
The previous Crown Victoria was so simple and practical when it comes to exterior design. Now, the 2020 Ford Crown Victoria will offer more aggressive styling with modern cues and features. The third generation should introduce a more upscale appearance with a completely different front end.
That includes new and larger grille, slimmer headlamps and larger bumper. The biggest change will for sure be the vehicle’s platform. Previous architecture was very versatile, but also too heavy, the new platform should result in a significant loss of weight.
Stylish Interior Design
As we already mentioned, one of the strongest points of the second generation was the interior. The same should happen with the third generation and 2020 Ford Crown Victoria. That includes astonishing interior design with the perfect layout and numerous modern features. This model will get the same cabin design as the rest of the Blue Oval’s lineup of sedans and hatchbacks.
Comfort is great and the technology is brilliant. We are still far from the production, so speculating about the interior specifics would be necessary. Numerous trim levels will for sure provide a luxurious interior, just like the optional features.
2020 Ford Crown Victoria Engine Specs
What will the upcoming 2020 Ford Crown Victoria hide under the bonnet is still a mystery. Mostly speculated options are 4.6-liter V8 and the 2.0-liter EcoBoost. The most likely outcome is borrowing the engine from the police interceptor, which is a 2.0-liter EcoBoost. This engine delivers 240 horses and 270 lb-ft of torque. Those figures are similar to the outgoing model and will save Ford a lot of money.
A 10-speed automatic transmission is the speculated gearbox, but we think Blue Oval carmaker will offer 8-speed automatic transmission. Furthermore, front-wheel-drive will be standard if the new platform arrives. Rumors are also suggesting the Platinum variant could happen and it will arrive with the 5.0-liter V8 with 450 horses.
2020 Ford Crown Victoria Price and Release Date
This full-size sedan will go on sale later in 2019 and it will cost around $30,000. It will be interesting to see the exact pricing of the 2020 Ford Crown Victoria and how many trim levels will be in the offer.
I would have preferred the 2006 – 2011 style exterior IMO but hey I can just buy a 2011 and call it new.
