Added 7 vehicles and thumbnails. A burgundy 1990 Chrysler Imperial is talked about but I don't it's shown.

@Ford Guy: there's no need to become panic, that Crown Vics will disappear soon. N.Y. is stille filled up (cluttered up... :P ) with them. As taxis or cop cars, they are still all around there. Two pics from the last week:

I must admit, that the upcoming N.Y.-taxi is not really US-style. No, not the Toyota Hybrod, I mean the Ford Transit Connect. Here in Germany I've never seen one as a taxi. Here they are in use as delivery vans for pharmacies, pizza-men or as company-car of window-cleaners and room-maids and so on.

@ingo: The competition winner was the Nissan NV200, not the Transit Connect.

Maybe, but in fact there are Transit Connects in taxi-use in Manhattan. I've spotted several of them.

The Transit Connect is on the current list of approved taxis, along with many others:

According to Wikipedia, the NV200 will arrive (and will become the only option) in 2013.

I'm sorry but I really can't envision the entire fleet of NYC cabs as ugly, boxy minivans! :mad: What were they thinking? I mean the Crown Vics are nothing special, but I prefer them than those fugly Nissan vans!

^ I pretty much agree with this. I'm usually not an "Murica!" type of guy but I wish they had gone with an American-origin design seeing as how iconic NYC taxis are.

Replacements such as the Ford Taurus, Dodge Charger, or Chevrolet Impala would have been better successors of the Crown Vic cabs.

At face value, yes. But none possess the room that the LWB Crown Vic offers. A better deal might have been to adopt an American sedan (either an LWB version of the ones you mentioned or a new one) to complement the Nissan, much as how other SUVs/minivans have complemented the Crown Vic for years now.

Good point, too bad NYC officials didn't think about that. But unfortunately, no matter how much we discuss what could have been better candidates for replacement, it won't change the fact that for at least the next 10 years, the NYC cabs will be infested with those abominations that they call the NV200.

NYC officials thought about this not in terms of what would be more practical, efficient, or "proper," but about what would be the cheapest and most profitable for them. Which is very unfortunate. Hopefully one of the American car companies steps up with a good offering in the next few years that can serve as a viable compliment.

Hmmm, one time, in Dec 2003, I made a short ride in a N.Y. Crown Victoria-taxi and I must say, that I was a bit disappointed. The space isn't that extraordinary, neither for the back passengers, nor for the luggage. A Mercedes E-Klasse or S-Klasse, even any 1990+ VW Passat has more passenger's space and a Citroen XM or an old Audi 100 a bigger trunk.

The Crown Vic reminded me very much to the taxi-experience, I made in the DDR in 1988 with a Volga M-24. There I was also astonished, how small inside is a from outside that big looking car.

Btw: my wife thought to purchase a little Yellow Cab-toy for our souvenir-vitrine. I told her "Sorry, no Crown Victoria in our house". Guess why :p

Actually the Crown Victoria had a total trunk volume of 20.6 ft³. The Mercedes-Benz W140, W220, and W221 had total trunk volumes of 15.6, 15.4, and 16.4 ft³ respectively. The Crown’s trunk was far larger.

ingo, do you recall if that was an LWB Crown Vic you were riding in or not?

@ Neptune & Nightrider: It wasn't the Mercedes Ingo compared the CV's trunk size to, it was the XM and the Audi 100. That said, the XM only has a boot of 16.25 cubic feet (the Estate model was around 25) though as the XM was a hatchback the boot would be easier to use. The 100 would be a Saloon so would have issues with usability though was a bit bigger than the XM at 16.7 (Typ 44) and 16.8 (Typ 4A) cubic feet. However, both are some what off from the figure of the CV.

I think so. It was definitely no Chrysler and I'm quite sure, that it wasn't a Caprice either.

Btw.: ALL stretched limo's, I've seen there, had taxi- or rental car-plates, not one single had private plates, either if from N.Y. or N.Y. I only remember one stretch limo with a private plate, spotted in 2003: with CAREY (so probably from Mariah). The same goes for all Lincolns and Grand Marquis, you see in N.Y., all were ruled by shuttle-services. For those goes the same as for the Crown Vic-taxis: if you look closer, they are all old clunkers, often repaired and overpainted. The colours are matt and not uniform, many body parts are hanging distorted in the body, so it was always a very fast work. If you want to see, where this work is done, go to Hells Kitchen. In the Western mid-40ies-streets, between the West Side Hwy and the 10th Ave re a plenty of taxi-repair-garages. You can see there boards with dozens of Crown Vic-doors, with Crown Vic-fenders, Crown Vic-hoods and so on. Sorry, no pic, but I hesitated, because the fellows were at work then.

@Neptune: I didn't made a pic specially for you, because it was to embarassing. The car and the situation (yelling teenage girls were hanging out of the windows) either: a hyper-stretched Escalade. In piggy pink :/
