2007 Lincoln Town Car Review
This review was written when the 2007 Lincoln Town Car was new.
The Town Car delivers a quiet, smooth ride and spacious cargo and passenger space, but it can't match the performance or modern styling of others in its class. If you're in the market for a luxury large car, you should also consider the Infiniti M or Mercedes Benz E Class.
Auto reviewers agree that the 2007 Lincoln Town Car offers plenty of room and comfort, traditional rear-wheel-drive handling, and good safety features. The newest model, a carryover from 2006, features design and performance upgrades first implemented in 2003 that "serve [the Town Car's] own unique customer base: Those who prefer their dashboards simple and straightforward and their rides pillow soft," touts Kelley Blue Book.
The 2007 Lincoln Town Car Signature base model features few add-ons that would raise the sticker price. But the more luxury Signature Limited, Designer Series and Signature L models can easily top $55,000 once buyers add on options. The Town Car, which competes with other luxury sedans, carries an affordable sticker price that prompted Road and Track to comment, "It may not be a Maybach, but there's plenty of room to stretch out in the back seat and leave plenty of your hard-earned cash in the bank." However, Kelley Blue Book points out, "Despite its premium car status, the Town Car does not hold its value well," noting that the Signature sedan is expected to retain less than 50 percent of its value at 24 months. IntelliChoice gives the base model a value rating of "worse than average" for its predicted five-year total cost of ownership, compared with other vehicles in its class.
The Lincoln Town Car is available in four trims: the base Signature, the Signature Limited, the Designer series and the top-of-the-line Signature L. All trims come equipped with a 4.6-liter V8 engine.
