The Impalas are actually more reliable from what I hear. They are faster definately than the Crown Vic. My mom'* friend'* husband is the police cheif of the town I go to school in, and he said he misses the Caprice because the crown vic'* are SLUGS. They don't handle good, they're slow as crap, etc. The Impala is probably around 7.5 seconds 0-60 whereas the crown vic is closer to 9. big difference. Only problem is the crown vic is heavier, so it can't be shoved around the road as much if they're trying to force someone to pull over.
