2009 Lincoln Town Car review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview
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.

New for 2009
There are no significant changes on the Lincoln Town Car

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.

Standard models are 215.4 inches long on a 117.7-inch wheelbase; the extended-length L sedans are 221.4 inches long overall with a 123.7-inch wheelbase.

  • Standard 17-inch wheels
  • Optional two-tone paint
  • Optional power glass moonroof

The Town Car seats up to six occupants and is equipped with a 40/20/40-split front bench seat. The seats are trimmed in premium leather. The extended-length Signature L has heated rear seats, a folding rear armrest, remote audio and climate controls, and rear-located seat-position controls for the outboard front passenger seat.
Interior features include:

  • Standard programmable power-adjustable pedals
  • Standard keyless entry
  • Standard dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Standard eight-way power seats for the driver and outboard front passenger
  • Standard power lumbar support
  • Standard extended rear parking assist
  • Standard heated front seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with wood inserts

Under the Hood
The Town Car’s 4.6-liter V-8 has 239 horsepower and 287 pounds-feet of torque.

  • Four-speed automatic is the only transmission
  • Standard traction control

Safety features include:

  • Dual-stage front airbags
  • Side-impact airbags
  • Standard antilock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution

An excellent car.

I recently purchased a loaded, light ice blue, 2009 Lincoln Town Car Signature Limited, with a navy blue, full, cloth coach roof, in mint condition. It is a shame Town Cars are no longer made, however since I do not like any of the new cars, due to their small size, bucket seating, lack of American style and comfort, I shall proudly & comfortably drive the last full size American luxury four door sedan.
