    Default Ford Crown Victoria

    The Ford agency in Saudi Arabia sells more Ford Crown Victorias than any other ford dealer. I own the Mercury version of it. It is durable and very comfortable. The gas mileage is half that of the smallest cars and is twice the size of a small car so the gas consumption is reasonable. Your website shows that there are some very expensive cars that make it to Pakistan. Why are there no Crown Victorias in Pakistan?

    over here ford isn't considered a luxury brand and people would rather buy a C-class or 3 series for the same money.

    Also back in the day the import duties were dependant on engine size so the 5.0+ V8 vic was very expensive to import.

    Vicky's are xcellent rides... but the reason for a non-existent market in Pakistan is that the tax structure makes it unfeasible to import a middle level luxury car.. and ofcouse the exhorbitant fuel prices addup too.
    Vics were targeted for the Mid class that wanted cars better than Camrys but cheaper than Cadillacs...
    Unfortunately that mid class in Pak is non existent...

    There seems to be only 2 market segments in pakistan... the Mercedes class or the Mehran class.
    That Does Not Kill You.........
