2010 Lincoln Town Car KBB Expert Review
The 2010 Lincoln Town Car is the last of a dying breed. This full-sized, body-on-frame, V8-powered American luxury car that once populated the driveways of the well-to-do now serves primarily as the backbone of the stretch limo business and as transportation for an aging retired population. No longer capable of competing with BMW, Audi or Lexus, the Town Car serves its own unique customer base: Those who prefer their dashboards simple and straightforward and their rides pillow soft. Of course, the Town Car does have its selling points, like a powerful V8 engine and a trunk deep enough to swallow four golf bags. Then again, customers looking to save some money can find many of the Town Car's best attributes in the less-expensive Mercury Grand Marquis.
You'll Like This Car If...
If you desire a big American road car with a long hood, soft ride and huge trunk, the 2010 Lincoln Town Car is for you. The L Edition's increased length translates into limousine-like rear legroom.
You May Not Like This Car If...
The Town Car doesn't stand out in a crowd and probably won't turn many heads. Though plush, the Town Car doesn't offer such advanced luxury features as a Head-Up Display (HUD), laser-guided cruise control, advanced electronic suspension, rear DVD entertainment or climate-controlled seats. It doesn't even offer stability control, auxiliary audio input jack or side-curtain airbags.
What's New for 2010
For 2010, a Continental Edition Package can be ordered on the Signature Limited trim and includes Continental stitching on the floor mats and front seats, chrome B-pillars and 17-inch chrome wheels.
Although the 2010 Lincoln Town Car's ride is probably one of the smoothest you'll find at any price, its suspension upgrades provide it with surprisingly good road manners. The feeling encountered once behind the wheel is one of control and moderation, without the floating disconnect that plagued previous generations. Power for the Town Car comes from Ford's modular 4.6-liter V8. Although not the most powerful V8 on the market, the 239-horsepower engine has no problem propelling the Town Car's vast bulk, nor is it short on torque. Off-the-line acceleration is strong in the Town Car, and its four-speed automatic transmission ticks through gears with all the precision of a Swiss watch. Once up to speed, wind and road noise are kept to a minimum, leaving you in a space where conversations can almost be conducted at normal levels.
A traditional analog clock returns to the Lincoln instrument panel, adding a touch of class.
Power Trunk Lid
The Town Car's power-operated trunk lid means you won't have to put down your packages or golf bags before loading them into the massive trunk.
The Town Car's prominent dash design features a vast stretch of wood that runs the width of the front panel, while a prominent center stack places the audio and ventilation controls front and center. A nice touch is the tasteful analog clock with chrome chaplets (those little wing-like decorative dressings) that adorns the center stack. Legroom is more than generous, especially on the L model that adds six inches to the wheelbase.
Lincoln's attempt to return to the squared-up styling cues from previous Town Cars delivers mixed results. The rear treatment looks great, but the current grille and front headlamps could easily be mistaken for a Mercury Grand Marquis. Other Lincoln styling cues include a stand-up hood ornament, C-pillar badges and the Lincoln logo embedded in the taillights.
Notable Standard Equipment
The Town Car features dual-zone automatic air conditioning, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes (ABS), traction control, front and rear cup holders, power locks, power windows, illuminated keyless entry with touchpad, automatic headlamps, dual-heated power mirrors, inside and left-side auto-dimming mirrors, Rear Park Assist, power-adjustable pedals, eight-way power seats, leather seating, cruise control, tilt steering, memory for the pedals, driver's seat and mirrors, Audiophile sound, heated front seats, leather and wood steering wheel with audio and climate controls, and a power open/close trunk.
Notable Optional Equipment
Options on the Lincoln Town Car include HID headlamps, the Continental Edition Package and 18-inch chrome wheels.
Under the Hood
Ford's 4.6-liter V8 is more than sufficient to move the Town Car. Although no BMW slayer, the big V8 is quiet and vibration-free, traits most Town Car owners appreciate more than raw power. Considering the Town Car's ponderous weight, its impressive highway fuel economy figures may make it a better choice than some similarly-sized SUVs.
239 horsepower @ 4900 rpm
287 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4100 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 12/17 (E85), 16/24 (Gasoline)
The Lincoln Town Car Signature Limited's Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starts around $47,500, while the stretched L version starts closer to $53,000. A look at the Fair Purchase Price provides insight into what others in your area are paying for their cars, so be sure to check it out before you buy. Despite its premium car status, the Town Car does not hold its value well over. Kelley Blue Book expects the Town Car Signature sedan to retain less than 50-percent of its value at 24 months and an anemic 21-percent at 60 months.
