Cam, from everything that i've been reading the last few months, Ford has indeed decided to produce a limited Crown Vic package with factory engine, suspension, and visual(blackout trim etc.) modifications. i don't save my car magazines when i'm thru with them(Autoweek, Car & Driver, Road & track, & 5.0 & SuperFords) but i feel sure that i've read that more than once
feel free to correct me Bullittheads!
I think they are going to call it the "Marauder". the pics looked pretty awesome. talk about your true "sleeper" vehicle.
think you could talk your commander into a fleet of "Marauders"? -lol

mystang,
I was talking about a car Kenny Brown did a year or two ago. It was a police interceptor with just a black push bar on the front and about 295 hp from the supercharged engine. You can see it (kinda) at http://www.kennybrown.com/ssfeature.html

Mercury is coming out with the Marauder in 2003 with the 4v engine. Ford also released a street version of the police interceptor this year to the public with all of the options on it as the interceptor has. I've only seen one in person and that was on a car hauler at local hotel.

I saw the Marauder at the Carlisle Ford show. They cranked it up,and that's one mean sounding Merc! Supposed to sell for $29,000...Not bad for all you get.

can you imagine that wicked looking car with flashing strobes in the bumper and/or a light bar coming up behind you when you were slightly exceeding the speed limit?

Yeah Bob, not to mention it has about 20 more HP too (with the supercharger). They had a write up in MM&FF on the KB Crown Vic and I think with all of the added stuff including supercharger it went for around $50,000. Including the price of the car. Also had serious suspension mods (expected from KB!). All black, limo tinit windows, all black trim and wheels, and a black pushbar on the front. I figure after I get the BULLITT paid off I might see about geting an old interceptor and sending to KB. Maybe an old Ohio State Patrol cruiser. They are this sharp grey color that isn't on stock Vics.

Ford does have one. It's a Crown Vic with Sports Appearance Package. Picked mine up 4 weeks ago. Ordered it in February from Haynes Ford in Hoosick,NY. All black,but I mean all Blacked out with all the Interceptor goodies including the 235HP 4.6 and adding floor shifter,buckets,17" alloy wheels. One sharp car. Will do just fine untill that Marauder comes out.

Stallion, you got a pic of the car? Like I said the only one I've seen was siting on top of a car hauler with all that plastic and stuff on it. Thanks!

Here I go thinking so please don't call the FD if you smell smoke, but isn't the Marauder supposed to be based on a 1950's body style? Or was that a other concept car?

The concept out this year is the Ford "FortyNiner". It is a sweet car! Marauder is basically a cruiser Grand Marquis with most of the police package underneath.
