LCPD Cruiser driving up to a call in Alderney The Cruiser appears to be modeled after a Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor. It's taillights are similar to those of a 1992-1994 model; the windows, headlights, and front and rear bumpers resemble those of the 1992-97 models; the chassis (on the bottom) is from 1995-1997 models; and the grille and hood look like those of 1998 and later models. The dashboard instrument cluster is unlike the Ford product, consisting of a tachometer, speedometer, fuel gauge and temperature gauge rather than the Crown Victoria's central speedometer and gauges for fuel, temperature, oil pressure and volts.

Hint When the player is stationary in any police vehicle they can access the Police Computer (this is done by pressing the L1 button (PS3) or the LB button (Xbox 360)), which lets Niko search for the most wanted criminals, see what the most recent crimes are, search the police records and even call for backup. This is where the player can start the Vigilante style side missions and the Most Wanted side missions.
