Design and Equipment
The Town Carâ€™s exterior design has a formal appearance with a chrome Lincoln signature grille flanked by quad-beam halogen headlamps. High-intensity-discharge headlamps are optional on Signature Limited, Designer 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, tail lamps and the chrome license plate surround present a clean, uncluttered appearance. The standard extended rear park assist feature helps with parking maneuvers.
All Town Car models are equipped with 17-inch wheels and tires. Signature versions come with a 12-spoke machined aluminum wheel, Signature Limited and Signature L have a 10-spoke machined aluminum wheel, and Designer models have a nine-spoke chrome aluminum wheel. Fleet versions use eight-spoke machined aluminum wheels.
Two extended-wheelbase models continue â€“ the Executive L (fleet only) and Signature L. In addition to their six-inch longer wheelbase, L models offer rear-seat amenities including a folding armrest with tissue and storage bins, dual power points, 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.
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.
Improved in 2003, the robust body-on-frame chassis construction is favored by both retail and commercial customers for its durability and comfortable ride.

The Lincoln Town Car was the first car in history to receive the governmentâ€™s highest five-star government safety ratings four years in a row for all five categories â€“ including rollover resistance.
