Summary

Vehicle Overview
Lincoln's rear-wheel-drive luxury sedan earned a substantial reworking for the 2003 model year. Flaunting a new stand-up hood ornament, the four-door Town Car's appearance grew noticeably more formal. Changes for 2008 are limited to the loss of trim levels and the optional navigation system.

Lincoln has removed the Designer and Signature trims, leaving the Signature Limited and Signature L. The Signature L sedan is 6 inches longer than its mates, both overall and in wheelbase length. Two additional series are available for limousine and livery use.

The Town Car's wheel selection includes machined-aluminum units with 10 spokes, as well as an 18-spoke chromed-aluminum wheel. There are front crash-severity sensors, and the front passenger seat has occupant-weight and seat-track-position sensors.


Exterior
The Town Car's formal appearance leads off with a chrome vertical-bar grille that's flanked by quad-beam halogen headlights. A stand-up ornament is mounted at the front of the hood. High-intensity-discharge headlights are optional. Large taillamps bring up the rear.

Standard models are 215.4 inches long overall on a 117.7-inch wheelbase, while the extended-length L sedans measure 221.4 inches long overall with a 123.7-inch wheelbase. All models have 17-inch tires. Whitewall tires, two-tone paint and a powered glass moonroof are optional.


Interior
Programmable adjustable pedals, keyless entry and dual-zone automatic climate control are standard for 2008.

Also standard are eight-way power seats for the driver and outboard front passenger, power lumbar support and extended rear parking assist. Heated front seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with wood inserts are standard.

Equipped with a 40/20/40-split front bench seat, the Town Car seats up to six occupants. The seats are trimmed in premium leather. Panels with burl walnut applique decorate the instrument panel and doors, and an analog clock is installed.

The Town Car features leather seating surfaces. The extended-length Signature L has heated rear seats, four-way rear head restraints, a folding rear armrest, remote audio and climate controls, and rear-located seat position controls for the outboard front passenger seat.


Under the Hood
The Town Car's 4.6-liter V-8 develops 239 horsepower and 287 pounds-feet of torque. A four-speed automatic is the sole transmission available. All-speed traction control is standard.

Safety
Dual-stage front airbags, side-impact airbags and antilock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution are standard.

Driving Impressions
The Town Car yields a surprisingly appealing driving experience, offering a secure, confident sensation and good connection with the road.

Town Cars are exceptionally stable on the expressway and especially easy to drive; they deliver a smooth yet controlled ride. The sedan is very quiet, but you can hear the engine. Braking is less pleasing because the pedal may exhibit a long dead spot before the brakes become effective.

Interior space is abundant, and rear legroom in the extended-length L sedan is massive. The seat bottoms are fairly long and well-cushioned, but support could be better.
