As with all Lincoln vehicles, Town Car comes standard with complimentary maintenance for 12 months/12,000 miles. The Lincoln Town Car is built in St. Thomas, Ontario.

Design and Equipment
The Town Car’s exterior design has a formal appearance with a chrome Lincoln signature grille flanked by quad-beam halogen headlamps. High-intensity-discharge headlamps are available on both Signature Limited and Signature L models.
A stand-up Lincoln star hood ornament sits at the leading edge of the hood on all models.
At the rear of the car, the fascia, taillamps and the chrome license plate surround present a clean, uncluttered appearance. The standard extended rear park assist feature helps with parking maneuvers.

Signature models are equipped with stylish, 17-inch 10-Spoke Machined Aluminum wheels.. An 18-spoke 17-inch chrome wheel is available on all models.

Two extended-wheelbase models continue – the Executive L (fleet only) and Signature L. In addition to their 6-inch longer wheelbase, L models offer rear-seat amenities including a folding armrest with tissue and storage bins, dual power points, rear seat vanity packs in the headliner with illuminated mirrors, and remote push-button controls for the audio system, climate control and front-passenger seat. The Signature L model includes heated rear seats as standard.

The Town Car seats six in luxurious comfort boasting best-in-class headroom, front and rear shoulder room, hip room. Standard amenities like heated, 8-way power driver and passenger seats with dual power recliners, power adjustable pedals and dual-zone electronic automatic temperature control make the Town Car a pleasure to drive.

Powertrain and Chassis
A 239-horsepower 4.6-liter V-8 mated to a four-speed automatic transmission is standard. Town Car puts power to the ground through its rear wheels via a 3.27:1 rear-axle ratio. All-speed traction control is standard and helps improve traction during inclement weather.

The robust body-on-frame chassis construction is favored by both retail and commercial customers for its durability and comfortable ride. Town Car comes standard with traction control and 4-wheel Anti-lock disc brakes. A variable-speed power steering system contributes to the Town Car’s confident, luxury ride.

Safety and Security
The Lincoln Town Car was the first car in history to receive the government’s highest five-star government safety ratings six years in a row for all five categories – including rollover resistance.

Town Car is equipped with Ford’s Personal Safety System®, which is one of the most comprehensive driver and front-seat passenger restraint systems available. It includes dual-stage air bags and safety belts with pretensioners and energy management retractors. Town Car continues to feature BeltMinder™, which chimes to remind the driver to buckle up.
