【Summary】Ford discontinued the famous Crown Victoria due to a combination of factors, including their financial struggles and a shift in customer focus. The decision was not based on one specific event, but rather a culmination of circumstances.

Ford Ends Production of Iconic Crown Victoria

The Ford Crown Victoria has been the go-to police car for law enforcement agencies in North America for nearly two decades. It was also available for civilian purchase as a spacious and comfortable sedan.

However, the Crown Victoria's reign came to an end due to a combination of factors, rather than a single event. One significant blow to the Crown Vic was Ford's "The Way Forward" plan, which aimed to improve the company's financial situation. In a 2006 press release, Ford highlighted their focus on successful models such as the Ford F-Series, Explorer, Expedition, Mustang, Escape, and Fusion, leaving out the Crown Victoria.
