The 2011 LINCOLN Town Car comes in two trims: the base Signature Limited and the extended Signature L, which adds six inches to the wheelbase and six inches to the overall length. A 239-horsepower 4.6L V8 engine is standard. It is mated to a standard 4-speed automatic transmission.
The LINCOLN Town Car utilizes traditional body-on-frame construction. The interior employs a reserved, formal design that includes premium leather, burl walnut trim and satin nickel accents. Standard features on both trims include 17-inch polished aluminum wheels, power adjustable foot pedals, a power-operated trunklid, rear-park assist, power heated front seats with driver memory, keyless entry and dual-zone automatic climate control.
In addition to those six extra inches, the Signature L adds folding front and rear arm rests and rear seat amenities that include rear A/C, rear audio controls, rear seat ducts, heated rear seats, a tissue bin, cigar lighter and auxiliary power outlet. Optional day-running lights and HID headlamps are available for both trims.
Standard safety features include 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, a full array of airbags, a security system, auto-on headlights and traction control, all of which are part of Ford's Personal Safety System. The LINCOLN Town Car has consistently scored 5-star ratings in all federal government crash tests for the last five years.
The LINCOLN Town Car is sold to retail customers only through special order, as most of LINCOLN Town Cars find homes with fleet and limousine services.
