The Lincoln Town Car has been one of the best selling full size luxury sedans Lincoln ever made mostly because it was quite cheap to run, the engine which powered it was quite powerful and easy to maintain while the body on frame construction allowed easy modifications to the car. However, the car has been discontinued quite a few years ago because the design was starting to get dated and it just wasn’t up on par with its competitors. However, there are plans for a 2016 Lincoln Town Car which may be a more different car than ever before.

In fact, it is highly possible for the new car to share most of the powertrain as well as some of the design cues with the upcoming Continental which would make sense considering the last model was quite similar too. However, changes to the exterior as well as to the interior are going to happen because it will be a less expensive model than the Continental. In fact, we expect the upcoming Town Car to cost no more than $40,000 which is almost 50% less than what the Continental would cost.
While the release date hasn’t been officially announced just yet, the car might come on the market by the end of 2016.
2016 Lincoln Town Car Specs
Engine wise, the Town Car is likely going to be available with a single engine choice which would allow for the low price it will have. This might be a naturally aspirated 5 liter V8 mill which would be able to provide around 450 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque which together with the standard all wheel drive system and Ford’s new 9 speed automatic gearbox should make for quite an interesting ride.
An EcoBoost version has been rumored for quite some time but most likely it won’t make it here because the car would become just too expensive.
On the interior of the 2016 Lincoln Town Car there are going to be quite a few changes over the Continental. The seats as well as the materials are going to be on par with most other luxury cars on the market but the general equipment level won’t. In fact, the car is going to be on the low side when it comes to commodities because it will only be available with dual zone automatic climate control, heated seats, a navigation unit as well as a premium audio system. As far as the options go, there aren’t going to be too many because the car would just become a cheaper Continental.
Exterior of Lincoln Town Car 2016
Its exterior on the other hand is likely going to impress with a lot of chrome, subtle lines as well as Lincoln’s brand new design scheme with a single piece grille and LED lights all around the car.
