The base price for a new Lincoln Town Car is $47,225 which firmly puts the car in the luxury vehicle market. Two different trims are available to consumers interested in the 2011 model: the Town Car Signature Limited and the Town Car Signature L. Truthfully, both are identical in terms of engine and performance. Differences are found in the size and wheelbase of the trims. Interior wise, the spaciousness of both trims can fit six passengers.
Lifting the hood of the Town Car reveals a powerful engine more than capable of contributing to solid performance. The 4.6L V8 engine can generate 239 hp @ 4900 RPM. The Town Car is not a race car but it can certainly pick up effective levels of speed when required. The 287 lb-ft of torque at 4,100 RPM is further evidence of how the car can perform. The transmission is a 4-speed automatic overdrive. The motor powers a rear-wheel drive system that can propel the car in an incredibly comfortable manner. In terms of body frames, the traditional design actually helps to move the car and helps with handling.
While the car is no longer manufactured, it leaves behind a tremendous legacy and is a classic luxury model for the high-end consumer. There are quite a number of these cars on the previously owned market, which means they are still accessible to the consumer looking for a luxury car.
