Town Car production will reach the end of the line late this summer, and its heir apparent (Ford hopes) for limo drivers is a new livery edition of the Lincoln MKT crossover wagon—called the 2012 Lincoln MKT Town Car.
For 2011, the Town Car remains offered in Signature Limited and Signature L trims, with the key difference being that the Signature L is six inches longer in both length and wheelbase. That added length goes straight to backseat legroom, so it's definitely the best choice for those who want to pamper their passengers.
Otherwise, performance from the 239-horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8 really is just adequate for the 2012 Lincoln Town Car; handling borders on sloppy; and seat comfort (and the seat design itself) will take you back a couple of decades. And on that tack, the Town Car's design hasn't changed appreciably since 1997.
Little has changed for its final year. For a complete look—along with more pictures, specs, and what other review sources have said—take a look through last year's full review of the Lincoln Town Car.
