Since 2003, Lincoln's rear-wheel-drive luxury sedan has received minimal changes; 2009 continues that trend.
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 mate in both overall and wheelbase length. Two additional series are available for limousine and livery use.
