Overview

What's New
Refinements to the Town Car for 2006 include an all-new wheel lineup and two new exterior colors. The offerings include an 8-spoke or 12-spoke machined aluminum wheel or an 18-spoke chrome wheel. New exterior color selections include Dark Cherry Clearcoat and Pewter Clearcoat Metallic, along with two new two-tone combinations. Inside, Medium Light Camel replaces the Light Parchment interior.

Overview
The Town Car is among the last of the full-size American sedans. Lincoln's flagship sedan features four trim levels: Signature, Signature Limited, Designer, and Signature L. (There are three separate models for commercial use in the livery and mortuary industries.) All Town Cars get the 4.6L V-8 with 239 hp that is mated to a 4-speed automatic. Town Car was the first car to receive the government's five-star crash test safety rating in all five categories, and has earned that distinction three years in a row.

In 1981, the Town Car made its first appearance in the U.S. market. It was redesigned in 1990, and in 1998 the third-generation Town Car was introduced featuring its current body style. The Town Car features everything one would expect in a luxury car, including an auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather seating surfaces, automatic climate control, rear park assist, keypad entry on the driver's door, pull-down assist for the trunk lid, and SecuriLock, an anti-theft device which features a transponder chip in the key that reads a code before allowing the vehicle to start.

The Competition
According to the J.D. Power and Associates Sales Report,SM the Town Car (47,122 unit sales for calendar year 2005) is maintaining a sales lead in the segment, thanks to its livery business. There are currently nine vehicles in the Large Premium segment, which includes the Lexus LS Series (26,043 unit sales for 2005), BMW 7 Series (18,165), new Cadillac DTS (23,322), and others vying for the attention of buyers. As long as Lincoln keeps the rear-drive chassis and continues to offer it to the trades, it should retain segment sales leadership. But keep an eye on the DTS, which did not have a full model year of sales in 2005.
