    Crown vics are great cars because you can get almost anything for them.

    all three of our chiefs were running crown vics, up until this last year we decided to go with f250 crew cab trucks in place of the crown vics for several reasons , the main is the amount of rain/flooding that we recieve being this close to gulf of mexico.

    Our A/C uses a GMC Dually as a command vehicle. It is quite useful and handy for us, but I can see where a more urban area would want a smaller vehicle. It sees considerable off-road use here.

    SUV's are the way to go. with a crown vic or any kind of car you cant really use it as a command vechicle like you can with a suv. with suv's you have the whole back to setup a command. with a care you dont really have the option. but thats just what i think
