The last generation of the Lincoln Town Car was produced from 2003 to 2011. Compared with the model it replaced, the last Town Car had a rigid chassis, improved mechanical components, small stylistic changes, and a redesigned interior. Even so, it was still based mainly on the previous car, with rear-wheel drive and the rear axle of the rigid bar.
2003 Lincoln Town Car. The Town Car remained virtually unchanged during its last nine years of production.
It had front and rear bench seats, so it was one of the few cars with six passengers remaining. It was offered in standard and extended versions, both with the 4.6-liter V8 engine with 239 horsepower and used a four-speed automatic transmission.
The changes during its lifetime were focused on changing the names of the available versions. For example, the fully-equipped model was named first Cartier, then Unlimited, and at the end Signature Limited.
The Town Car is the highest-rated American car in the middle segment of luxury. According to customer satisfaction research made by JD Power and Associates, 60 percent of all Town Car customers are repeat buyers. Approximately 75 percent of limousines fleet and chauffeured vehicles are made of this huge American luxury sedan.
From 2006 to 2011, the main models were the Signature Limited with the regular chassis and the Signature L with the extended chassis. It had dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, power pedals, a premium sound system, a power-opening trunk, and memories for the driver seat. The Signature L was basically a limo with six extra inches and had a lot more back room and separate controls for audio and climate in this area.
Places to store things were abundant; it had a smooth ride and plenty of room inside, and the ability to store four sets of golf clubs in the huge trunk. This model, compared to the previous generation, got benefited greatly from the rigid chassis resulting in a more direct steering wheel that alongside the upgraded brakes did a car with more reliable handling.
The Lincoln Town Car is one of the safest cars in the United States. Boasts a record of five stars rating obtained in the safety tests of the federal government in five categories for four consecutive years (2003-2006). It is appealing for its spacious seating for six and a cavernous trunk with plenty of storage space for luggage and golf clubs.
Unfortunately, the lack of modern equipment and technology, made the Town Car be left behind the competition, so Lincoln decided to remove it from the market. This can be an advantage if you are looking for a used luxury car as its price is cheaper than the competition and offers the same comfort and even more space than many other cars in the segment.
Its major opponents in the market are the Mercedes-Benz, Infiniti Q, the Lexus LS, Audi A8 and the BMW 7 Series. Not an easy competition.
