Lincoln Town Car – are we looking at the best?

One of the best and probably the safest cars in North America has to be the Lincoln Town Car. It is surprising considering that the safest car isn’t a Volvo. Even US President Mr. Barack Obama prefers to travel in a Lincoln Town Car. This car is manufactured by Lincoln which is Ford Motors equivalent of Nissan’s Infiniti and Toyota’s Lexus. It is a luxury, full size sedan and features ballistic protection. It can seat 6 people, given its sedan roots and very comfortably at that. It is Lincoln’s flagship sedan. If you are an aristocrat looking for a huge trunk space, smooth ride and huge dimensions, look no further than the Lincoln car.

This is one amongst the few cars that are offered in 6 seater guises. Even this car offers standard as well as long wheelbase variants. Be it any variant, the Lincoln do offer heated seats all around, dual zone automatic climate control, 12 CD 16 speaker sound system, electric memory pedals, seats and mirrors. The interiors are class apart and only the more classier Lexus may be some competition to the Lincoln car. There is only one engine option for this heavily armored car and it is a 4.6-liter V8 engine. It develops a measly 239 HP of peak power and 287 pound-feet of torque. It only has a 4 speed automatic transmission to take care of its gear shifting duties. This is only a laggard and Ford Motors could have done well by including a 5 or better still 6 speed automatic transmission. The engine peak power should also be bumped up to about 350 HP to carry around this behemoth with ease. The steering wheel however deserves a special mention with its weighty feel. It also gets a good chassis and perfect brakes for the business. The NVH is typically the one that you would experience in a Mercedes S class. There are also many storage spaces in and around the cabin. Fuel economy is dismal considering the weight that the motor lugs around. It stands at 12 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway.


The seats and all the components therein are designed primarily for comfort and opulence at its best. The Lincoln Town Car town car is one of the few cars which don’t carry around an aura of been expensive however one would have to sell their kids to own one. No wonder that not many are found around and it is only the preferred set of wheels for state heads and other big shots or people from Hollywood fraternity. Its sticker price for the base variant is $146, 995 and with this, you get armored ballistic protection. Nothing can faze the car, not even a torpedo missile.
