It has been a while since I have sold a car here, but I thought it might be time to try again. Up for sale is a 2011 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor. The car is being sold with NO RESERVE! It was used by a sheriff's department in southern Wisconsin and is in about as good of a condition as you can get! They have a history of turning cars over quickly and I am sure this one off the first retired 2011 cruisers on eBay. It does show 122,859 miles. They are all highway miles as that department does not contract with any cities in the county. This Crown Vic comes with many desired options, and has the rare Arizona Beige Metallic color. The interior is Light Camel, and is INCREDIBLY clean! It is in great condition, and it's hard to do better!
Some small changes were made for the 2011 model year. The front seat bolsters and headrests were redone. It does feel different than previous Crown Vics. The bolster switch was relocated to the right bottom of the seat. Side airbags became standard equipment. This car is equipped with the 'plug and play' option. All of the wiring for the strobe lights and the light bar is still there. The wig wag module it still mounted under hood and I am sure would still work if powered. All wiring is hidden away, but can be accessed.
A walk around the car shows a nearly perfect body. I found 1 ding on a quarter panel, and 1 scuff on the rear bumper cover. They are so small that the camera couldn't pick them up! It had a couple of stone chips of which I touched up. This car does not have holes all over it either. They are only in the roof. The only hole that is sealed and plugged was for the light bar. The radio antennas and the GPS antenna are still on the car creating no holes. Spotlight works good. Headlights are crystal clear. All glass in the car is perfect as well with no chips, cracks, or pits. Overall, I would call the body a 9-9.5. They are hard to find this straight!
The interior is the Light Camel color. In police form, it is very hard to keep clean. This is the cleanest I have seen in this color. Apparently, no one ever had coffee in this car! Rare options like carpet and cloth back seat come with this car. It looks like none of the seats have been sat in as they are that clean. It appears that some minor upholstery work was done on the back of the drivers seat. Likely rubbed through cloth from the partition. The steering wheel has some dye rubbed off of it. Driving gloves, I am guessing... The carpet only has very minor dirt stains, but they are hard to find. The sheriff's department did swipe the floor mats out of it, though. The headliner does show some minor wear from the partition. Look at the pics. Can it come cleaner?
The 4.6 SOHC V8 engine starts and runs perfectly. The motor can run on gasoline or E85. It pulls very nicely and has the power that it is supposed to have. The transmission is spot on with no erratic or sloppy shifts. The car is equipped with the 3.27 locking axle. It just received a Mobil 1 oil change (drum here to prove it) with an OE oil filter. Everything works as it should. There are no check engine, or any other trouble lights on. Goodyear Eagle RSA tires show 50% on front and 70% on the rear. Just turn the key and fire it up, and go anywhere you want.
Unlike other eBay sellers, I try to provide a COMPLETE description of the car. If you have any questions, please ask. I will respond promptly. Once again, the Crown Vic is being sold with NO RESERVE and a low price of $6250 to start. You can't find 2011s this clean at the auction for this price! I will accept cash or certified funds as payment. Payment must be made within 7 days of completion of auction, and removal within 14 days of completion of auction. If you want to fly and drive, I will pick you up at Mitchell International in Milwaukee and take you to the car with no charge. Good luck!

In the next decade, the auto industry will see an explosion in its use of aluminum to cut weight and increase fuel economy, according to a study from market analysts Ducker Worldwide cited by The Detroit News. We are already seeing the lightweight metal show up extensively in luxury models from Europe, but with the impending launch of aluminum-intensive 2015 Ford F-150 (pictured above), North America is using it even more, as well. The report predicts 70 percent of US pickups to have aluminum bodies by 2025.
Mon, 28 Oct 2013 15:30:00 EST
It won't just be pickups that see the benefit, though. The average amount of aluminum in US vehicles is forecasted by the study to grow from an average of 350 pounds in 2013 to about 550 pounds by 2025. The most common parts to use it will be hoods, doors and - to some extent - roofs, as well.
The massive increase in pickups' aluminum content hardly seems surprising. The F-150 is predicted to use so much that it might cause a short-term shortage, according to one earlier report. At the same time General Motors is heavily rumored to be negotiating with suppliers for the next generation Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. Ram is the last holdout of the Big Three, but the study predicts that not to last.
When Ford first announced its plan to put the 1.0-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder engine under the hood of the 2014 Fiesta, it promised hybrid-like fuel economy without a hybrid-like premium. We're still waiting for official specs on this engine, but thanks to the EPA's fueleconomy.gov website and Ford's retail site, we now know what customers can expect in terms of both fuel economy and price.
Sun, 23 Feb 2014 18:01:00 EST
All along, Ford has said that it expects the 1.0-liter EcoBoost to get more than 40 miles per gallon on the highway, and now the EPA backs this up with official ratings of 32 mpg in the city and 45 mpg on the highway. These numbers are an increase of two mpg city and four mpg hwy compared to the current fuel-sipping Fiesta (the 1.6 SFE), and it also beats other three-cylinder cars for highway mileage like the 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage (44 mpg highway) and 2014 Smart Fortwo (38 mpg highway); the Fiesta 1.0 EcoBoost is lower than both three-pot rivals, though, in city fuel economy with the Mitsubishi getting 37 mpg city and the Smart rated at 34 mpg city. This model handily beats high-volume small cars like the Honda Fit, Toyota Yaris and Chevy Spark in both city and highway numbers.
As for pricing, the 1.0-liter EcoBoost is offered on both the sedan and hatchback as a $995 option called the SE Manual EcoBoost package, which is aptly named since it's only offered on SE trim-level Fiestas equipped with a manual transmission. Along with the engine, the package also comes with 15-inch steel wheels, regenerative brakes and a decklid spoiler on the sedan. This means the four-door Fiesta 1.0 EcoBoost will start at $16,445*, or $17,045* for the hatchback (*not including $795 for destination).
Photos of the 2015 Ford Focus leaked earlier today, but now we're able to tell you more details of the global five-door hatchback. Bucking automaker's troubling trend of ditching manual transmissions in favor of automatics, Ford says the new 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine will come only in a six-speed manual in the US, because, well, American drivers aren't as sophisticated as our European brothers and sisters.
Ford didn't come out and say it that way, but it has found American drivers are more prone to complain about automatics in smaller-engine cars, Raj Nair, Ford's group vice president of global product development, said at a press conference last week. The recent JD Power Vehicle Dependability Study backs up Ford's claims, pointing out that drivers are complaining about rough transmission shifts, engine hesitation and lack of power, particularly in small cars. In Europe and other parts of the world, drivers seem to understand the quirks of these pint-sized engines, Nair said, so they'll have the option to buy an automatic. Ford is working on tuning its dual-clutch transmissions to make them more amenable to American driver's tastes.
Ford will show off the refreshed 2015 Focus at the Geneva Motor Show in early March. The car is due for an update, having been on sale in its current form since 2012. The automaker said it is jamming the car full of new technology - like a USB port that promises to charge your phone in half the time as a regular USB port. Features like Sync and a rear back-up camera will come standard. For a more in-depth look at the car, take a look at the full press release.
