In a move that I've been advocating since I first saw the current Australian Ford Falcon, the Blue Oval may bring the rear-drive sedan to the U.S. as a replacement for the aging Crown Victoria and Mercury Grand Marquis. The car could be the answer to the booming Chrysler 300C but don't expect Ford to get too crazy with the styling since most buyers of the Crown Vic are of the elderly variety. However, police may enjoy driving the Falcon over the Crown Vic since the latter's fuel tank has the tendency to rupture in rear-end collisions. This could be the boldest move by Ford in a long time. Since the 500 already looks like it will draw an older crowd, the company needs something to attract younger buyers.
