It is a full size vehicle and has been crafted and manufactured in one body style which is a sedan that holds four doors. It has been mounted and built on the FR Panther platform and for this very reason, it has been said that the Ford Crown Victoria is very much a relative of the Mercury Grand Marquis, the Mercury Marauder, and the Lincoln Town Car. The vehicles that has been said and classified as the competition of the Ford Crown Victoria include the Buick Lucerne, and the Toyota Avalon.

Despite the fact that the Ford Crown Victoria has been manufactured since the middle of the 1950s, this vehicle has had only quite a few number of sales compared to other vehicle brands and vehicle models. However, this vehicle has been one of the most popular vehicles among fleets. It has been said that it has a twin, which is the Mercury Grand Marquis. Now, both the Ford Crown Victoria and the Mercury Grand Marquis are popularly used by fleets. At present, the color choices for the interior of the Ford Crown Victoria include Charcoal Black Leather, Light Camel Leather, and Medium Light Stone Leather. As per the exterior, only four choices are available and these colors are Dark Toreador Red, Silver Birch, Black, and Tungsten Clearcoat Metallic.
