I must ask why? I do not hate it i like it in all ways. This one can only be seen in certain parts of the city. And i'm curious why that is? IS there even a reason.

 

Also can you get a police version of the buffalo i know you can get an FIB one. If so how?

There are two styles because most cities are now switching to the smaller fords or chevy's because ford quit producing the crown vic a few years ago. So im assuming that they were trying to go along with that in gav

As Anti Hero said, most departments in the country still very much use the Ford Crown Victoria but are transitioning to the Dodge Charger, Ford Taurus, Chevrolet Impala, and/or Chevrolet Caprice.

The Charger / Buffalo can be seen spawning around Mission Row in the early hours of any day of the week. You'll notice it straight away due to the badge decal on the hood.

The Crown Vic? It rarely patrols but will respond to crimes in Downtown LS. Also, it is nearly always parked outside most of the Los Santos precints. Two or three outside of the Davis sheriff office too.

And it is the only car used by the sheriff's office in Blaine county.

True, but there are two versions of the Sheriff Crown Vic.  One has old rotating emergency lights, and one has pure LEDs.

Also, I've noticed three different versions of the LSPD Crown Vic.  There is one with old rotating emergency lights, one with pure LEDS, and one with what looks like old rotating lights but seated below them are LED lights and it is those LED lights that activate.  Not sure what the deal is with the latter car.  Michael's wife is seated in the back of one during the good husband mission.

Why?  Because the mass majority of police forces in this country use multiple vehicles?  And also they decided to put the new style Ford Interceptor in the game and the Old Crown Vic... why is this even a question lol?  Ever watched Alaska State Troopers?  They use Expeditions, Crown Vics, Dodge Chargers and even the new Ford Interceptors and some new Chevy's.  Horrible post.

 

The question should have been why don't the new Interceptors in the game and the Buffalo use the same livery.

Because LAPD in real life uses Chargers and Crown Vics.

 

GTA IV also had this by using Crown Vics and Chevy Impalas for their 2 police cars. It was a police version of the Merit (Chevy Impala) and the Stainer (Crown Vic, but Stainer wasnt until GTAV)

^  Nice how both of them had the same livery isn't it?  Whereas in V R* halfassed it like a million other things and decided to just make the new Interceptor livery look as it does in the video advertising it for Ford on YouTube.

It seems more like an intentional design choice, rather than half assing.  The new cruiser makes a bold statement.

I also hate how they reduced the number of taxicabs from 3 (in GTA4) to only 1. The taxi models they used were the Stainer, the Merit, and the Minivan.

 

Now in GTAV, they only use the Stainer. I realize its not NYC anymore and there's less taxis, but they could've atleast had a Dilettante cab. I live in LA and I swear I see more Prius cabbies than Crown Vics now.

Disappointed with the lack of responding police vehicles and the lack of patrolling units. Every single damn time it's a friggen Taurus chasing me or someone else. Is it that hard to have the Marked and Unmarked Crown Victorias and Chargers to get in on the action?  They got it right in IV but I dunno.

You can get that other police car when helping amanda with michael run away from the police. (You know when she phones you asking for help at a store. There is a police car outside the store where your going to take her. Steal that car)

The second picture, i have to ask my self why doesn't that police car ever chase you in a persuit it is just the same 1st picture police cars i would rather see the older model police vehicle actully do something in the game 

 

other than sit  parked and just not even on patrol  i world love to see a mix of the 2 that can chase after you.

Maybe, but the newer cars should also read Los Santos or at least bear the city seal instead of just the generic, over-sized "police" on the sides and bumper.

The badge on the hood of the Buffalo is even sillier. Makes it look like a D.A.R.E. vehicle.

When I first did that mission I just so happened to roll up in a police car lol.  The new Interceptor model.  I hated having to get out and take the Crown Vic one, lol.

yeah, there are too many tauruses in the game. they should spawn 50/50, at least. OR, spawn the crown vics when your wanted level is higher and they need the v8 for pursuit.

 

i've seen zero LAPD crown vics online.

If you've ever been to a decent sized city there's usually at least one or two different style police cruisers.

In my city we have police Tahoes, some newer Ford SUV that I forget, Fusions, and the classic Crown Vic which also comes unmarked, those are Narco cars(Narcotics unit).

If anyone has seen the unmarked Crown Vic style police cruiser please drop me a line here. I desperately want one because they have awesome hub caps, nice color and most important that awesome ramming bullbar in the front.

Ha.

 

My city uses just Crown Victorias. We're not a really big city, but the guy above me is right. Very large cities use more than one vehicle type. New York City has Crown Victorias, Ford Fusions, Chevy Impalas, and much more. We only say Crown Victorias and Impalas in GTA IV, but in V we get to see the new Taurus and the Crown Victora in action.

I got myself the Buffalo yesterday but it was screwed up once I evaded the cops. I switched to Michael real quick then Franklin to try out that fix cars tip... -_________- Why the f*ck did he go to the f*cking hospital and lose the cop car? All of that work for nothing. I know he lost health but he didn't die. Why force him to go to the hospital when I switch and lose my car? I went back to steal it again but it wasn't there.

 

Down in my city we have a variety of cars:

Unmarked Mustangs used as highway patrol

Unmarked '13 Chargers used as highway patrol

Marked Tahoes

Marked Crown Victorias

Marked '13 Chargers

The more modern police cars are the ones I always see on the streets.

The only places where I've seen the Crown Vic are in the back of the LSPD station near Lester's textile factory and the lot next to Tonya's tow truck parking.

the newer models are interceptors, used for chases.

 

the vics are patrol models used for urban areas.
