2000 Ford Crown Victoria Cng - No Reserve! on 2040-cars
Springville, Utah, United States
Ford Crown Victoria runs on Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). This is a dedicated CNG engine and does not run on gasoline. This vehicle has served me faithfully for a dozen years, getting about 21 MPG on CNG which currently sells for $1.50 in the state of Utah. That is dollar equivalent to getting nearly 50 miles to the gallon, but in a large, spacious vehicle. I commute from Springville to Salt Lake City regularly using the carpool lane with a Clean Vehicle pass issued by UDOT. The tank holds about 14-15 gallons, and have I driven it more than 300 miles on a single fill up. Natural gas burns clean leaving less engine residue and allowing for a longer engine life that is ever expected with a gasoline engine.
The body of the vehicle in great shape other than a fair number of rock chips. The interior looks very clean. The car feels like it could use new shock absorbers, and the engine hesitates some until it warms up, but I have no problem taking it back and forth along the Wasatch Front. I have also taken it on numerous trips between Utah and Southern California, and to visit my daughter in Pocatello, Idaho.
This vehicle was originally owned by Cal State Channel Islands as a vehicle for school administrators. It has a police interceptor engine for extra power and extra CNG tank capacity, but was never fitted as a police car. It was outfitted to carry executives and it plush and comfortable inside. It has power windows, power door locks, power side mirrors, cruise control, an A/C that runs cold, and a Kenwood sound system with USB and CD. The car has six seat belts, but seats five very comfortably.

How times have changed. Even five years ago, who would have thought the mighty V8 would be just another engine choice for buyers of the 2015 Ford F-150?

Ford is projecting about 28 percent of the next-generation trucks will have the 5.0-liter V8. That's nothing to sneeze at, but consider this: Ford figures its two EcoBoost truck engines - the new 2.7-liter V6 and the existing 3.5-liter V6 - will also each account for about 28 percent of the F-150's sales (56 percent total). That leaves only 15 percent of the pie for the 3.5-liter (non-EcoBoost) V6. The new F-150 goes on sale late this year.

Nick Scheele was born in the UK in 1944 and joined the Ford Motor Company upon graduating from the University of Durham in 1966, staying within the Blue Oval's portfolio for the entirety of his career. After moving to North America in 1978, he rose through the ranks to become president of Ford's Mexican operations in 1988. After acquiring Jaguar, Ford appointed Scheele as its chairman.
Scheele subsequently acted as chairman of all of Ford's European operations, making difficult decisions to take the division out of the red and into the black. He briefly headed up Ford's North American division before he was appointed in 2001 as president and chief operating officer of the global automaker, working under CEO Bill Ford following the departure of Jacques Nasser departure and retaining the role until his retirement in 2005.
Companies ranging in size from small startups to major automakers have been experimenting with solar-powered charging stations for EVs and plug-in hybrids. And, of course, people have been powering vehicles with onboard solar panels for quite some time, too. Still, Ford's new C-Max Solar Energi Concept shows the promise of a truly practical implementation of solar on a production vehicle, and it may not be as far off in the future as we had thought.
As we reported a few days ago, the Solar concept makes use of a "concentrator lens" that focuses sunlight onto the Ford's roof-mounted solar panels. The special lens follows the rays of the sun to maximize the amount of charge being fed to the batteries of the car, taking about a day to fully charge the 21-mile, all-electric range of the C-Max Energi. Ford data suggests that combination might be enough to power 75 percent of all trips made by a statistically average driver. In turn, using the sun to power a vehicle could reduce yearly C02 emissions by up to four metric tons when compared with the driver of an average gasoline-powered sedan.
We've got live images of the C-Max Solar Energi Concept, jauntily tilted on its display to best present it's signature solar panels, straight from the CES floor.
