1991 Ford Crown Victoria & Mercury Grand Marquis Test Drive
Body on frame full size American cars are all but dead, and as seen in 1991, this was the beginning of the end. Both GM and Ford redesigned their big cars for 1991 and 1992 respectively, both bringing new tech to an old idea, GM brought styling, Ford brought its first use of the modular OHC engine. This basic design is far more accepted by fleet, and municipal services, while the retail buyer of them fell off quickly, GM first after 1996, while Ford held on full twenty years on this platform. Fords original LTD, and Mercury’s Marquis show how far, OR little this enigma changed.
