Lincoln Town Car

Ford at one time had considered ending production on Lincoln's flagship model after the planned closing of the Wixom Assembly Plant in Wixom, Michigan in 2007. Ford ultimately decided to keep the model and move assembly to the St. Thomas Assembly Plant in Ontario, Canada where the Ford Crown Victoria and Mercury Grand Marquis, which also use the Ford Panther platform are currently built. The Town Car's production will continue at its new locale in late 2007. According to Consumer Guide the vehicle's strengths are comfort, materials, and ride quality. However, acceleration and handling are named as being the vehicle's weaknesses. This full-size luxury sedan has been referred to as a traditional American luxury sedan. The Town Car features a V8 engine, rear wheel drive, very generous exterior and interior dimensions as well as a smooth ride. The Town Car is currently the largest American-made car, measuring nearly 18 feet in length for a standard Town Car and 18 1/2 ft for an L Edition. The Town Car's main competitors include the Lexus LS 460 and the Cadillac DTS. The Town Car is, despite recently declining sales numbers, one of the best selling American luxury cars. It also serves as America's most used limousine and chauffeured car, especially as its main competitor, the Cadillac DTS is said not to be as dependable. Holding the title as preferred car for hired drivers is certainly a very nice complement to luxury and prestige. While relatively affordable when compared to European flagship luxury sedans, the Town Car is currently the most expensive American luxury sedan with prices ranging from $42,875 for a basic Signature Series to $56,745 for a top-of-the-line Signature L Series. Prices for Town Cars with ballistic protection, available since 2003, start at $144,995. But, how much is your life worth?
