OT: Crown Vic towing capacity, why not?
If I was to get a car, I think I'd get a Crown Vic as it's the most truck-like car I can think of, and I figure it'd have no problem pulling a Zuk trail toy [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] However, it's only rated at 2000lbs towing capacity, even though it sports a 4.6L V8 and 4 wheel disc brakes! [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] Why is it rated so little, while a similarly eqipped F150 is rated at over 8000 lbs? Is the 4spd auto tranny weak, or does this concern the braking system or stability? Anybody have an idea? BTW, the trunks on those cars are 20 cubic feet, WOW! I wonder how many speakers would fit in that abyss? [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
