If it is a large, durable sedan that you are searching for that will likely withstand the test of time, then look no further than the 2011 Lincoln Town Car Sedan. Not only is it durable, but it literally has not been altered by Lincoln in years. Perhaps it is for this reason that it is often seen as a fleet car, used for taxicabs or public vehicles. Despite thoughtful features, the car could have been given a generous facelift, inside and out. Though this could be an indication of reliability it can also be a sign of being outdated, and arguably not very attractive to younger generations.
Interestingly enough, the Lincoln Town Car Sedan is still one of the few sedans that have six-passenger seating, a luxury we might have forgotten in recent years, and some may have missed. However, being a larger sedan that has not adapted to the modern feel of easy to maneuver driving, the Lincoln Town Car Sedan often feels like driving a big boat. Sure, it is responsive, but it is long with a generous size turning circle that does it no favors when it comes to maneuverability and parking. On the positive side though, the Town Car has always been known for delivering a smooth ride.
the 2011 Lincoln Town Car certainly does not compete with others when it comes to fuel-economy as it returns 16 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. It is powered by a flex-fuel 4.6-liter V8 engine that delivers 239 horsepower and 287 pound-feet of torque. While this is plenty of passing power, one would expect a lot more power for such poor gas mileage. This is a rear-wheel drive vehicle with a four-speed automatic transmission. Zero to 60 mph is 8 seconds, but the Town Car seems to run out of steam quickly after this.
Although there is one aspect of the Lincoln Town Car Sedan which has a consistently been a reason for their lack of change, and that is the offered safety advantage that it has over some sedans in its class. It includes traction control and antilock brakes, and has high ratings for its front and side crash safety impacts. Although the safety features of the Lincoln Town Car Sedan are impressive, it doesn't seem to make a difference when compared to the outdated styling and poor fuel-economy.
