This vehicle has all the legendary reliability of service proven by every police cruiser and cab on the road, but the mercury edition has something the police interceptor does not have. Leather. And woodgrain. And digital AC, wheel mounted cruise control, power windows, locks, mirrors and seats, a kenwood CD player, dual airbags, no bars on the windows... Ok so I guess there's more than a couple upgrades, but the point is, the 4.6 liter V8 (same motor as in the mustang) and drivetrain are the most reliable ford has ever put out, and if you were, god forbid get into an accident, I'd rather be in this vehicle than a little tin can of a car. Come take it for a ride!
