Review of the 2007 Lincoln Town Car

  • Lincoln's luxury flagship is one of only a few big American rear-wheel-drive sedans on the market. If that's what you're looking for, the 2007 Lincoln Town Car will not disappoint. However, full-size European and Japanese sedans are better in most respects.

Solid performer with comfort

Vehicle: 2007 Lincoln Town Car Signature Limited 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Our 2007 Lincoln gives a roomy and comfortable ride with excellent trunk space and 23 MPG economy on a road trip and 18MPG around town. It isn't the fastest car off the line, but a Lincoln owner is mature enough to know this isn't necessary or desirable. It gives adequate performance when passing or getting up to speed on the interstates. When you analyze what a car should do - transport a number of people in comfort and safety at a reasonable cost - the Lincoln Town Car excels at that. Our 92 Town Car gave excellent service for 15 years, and this one seems to be just as reliable. Seats are comfortable and the features are great. Our 67,000 miles with no service problems says it all!

Vehicle: 2007 Lincoln Town Car Signature Limited 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Edmunds, has in the past been less than positive about this car. Without going into detail: the car has very adequate performance, gas mileage is equal to or surpasses many of the cars Edmunds refers to. My wife has an Infiniti Q45 and the Lincoln gets better fuel economy and I believe a more pleasant ride. I am glad to note that Edmunds is less critical of this car recently but one must be aware that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I base these comments on owning 2 Fords, 3 Mercurys and 3 Lincolns. AND they are all American made, mostly. Sorry to see the Towncar go by the wayside. Sorrowfully I cannot determine my replacement. I have driven all the new models Lincoln offers, blah!




Great value

Vehicle: 2007 Lincoln Town Car Signature 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

This is my 3rd Lincoln and it is by far the best I've owned.My '07 rides better than my '96 and gets better gas mileage. This car truly excels on the highway where the soft ride, excellent sound system and more than adequate power consumes miles without effort. I have owned Acura, Mercedes and other quality cars and for the money, they cannot match the TC. The interior is so large and comfortable you cannot compare it to any other car. The gas mileage is great for such a large car. On long trips I have averaged almost 25 mpg going 75 mph - all done on regular gas. This car does everything extremely well at a very compelling price.

What's New for 2007

The 2007 Lincoln Town Car is not significantly different from the 2006 version. There are a few new colors and a power-open and -close trunk is standard on Signature L, Signature Limited and Designer trim levels.

Introduction

While the name Town Car has been used by Lincoln as a trim level since the 1960s, 1981 marked the first year the Lincoln Town Car became a model unto itself. Since then, it has become a favorite with traditional American buyers as well as fleet operators, and for good reason. The big car's front-engine V8, rear-wheel-drive layout and its body-on-frame construction generally mean lower maintenance costs, plus the car drives and handles in a way that's familiar to many longtime Lincoln customers. The interior is very spacious and comfortable, making it the perfect candidate for family road trips or use as an upscale airport shuttle.

Despite the reliance on improvements and redesigns over the years, the 2007 Lincoln Town Car still has a distinctly old-school look and feel. For some, that's clearly a selling point and likely attracts plenty of repeat buyers. For others, however, there are many other choices available that provide similar or better amounts of luxury wrapped in more modern packages. For that latter group of shoppers, luxury sedans like the Lexus ES 350, Chrysler 300C and Infiniti Q45 provide more modern styling, high-tech features and better driving dynamics.

Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options

The 2007 Lincoln Town Car is a large luxury sedan that comes in four distinct trim levels, starting with the Signature level. The Signature is available in regular- or long-wheelbase (called the L) form, while the Signature Limited and Designer are only available with the regular wheelbase. Standard equipment on the Signature includes 17-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, leather upholstery, power front seats, power-adjustable pedals, a CD player, an analog clock for the dashboard, automatic headlamps and rear parking sensors. The Signature Limited adds heated front seats, driver seat memory, a wood-and-leather steering wheel, an upgraded audio system with an in-dash CD changer and a full power open/close trunk you can operate via the key fob. The Designer has additional chrome trim, Provence-style leather seating, adjustable rear headrests and two-tone door panels.

The 6-inch wheelbase extension of the Signature L provides increased rear-seat legroom and builds upon the standard Signature model's equipment list with dual rear-seat power points, adjustable rear head restraints, heated rear seats and remote controls for audio, climate and the front passenger seat. Additional options include chrome wheels, HID headlights, a moonroof, trunk-mounted CD changer and a navigation system paired with a THX-certified audio system.

Powertrains and Performance

All Town Cars are powered by a 4.6 liter V8 that makes an adequate 239 hp. It's mated to a four-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels. The EPA estimates fuel economy for the 2007 Town Car to be 17 miles per gallon in the city and 25 on the highway -- fairly respectable numbers for a big luxury sedan.

Safety

While the Lincoln Town Car comes standard with side airbags for the front seat occupants, it does not offer head curtain airbags for either the first or second row. Still, the Town Car receives a five-star rating for both front occupants from the NHTSA for the fourth year in a row; five stars is the government's highest rating. Traction control is also standard but stability control is not available. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Town Car a rating of "Good" for offset frontal impacts, which is also that organization's highest rating.

Interior Design and Special Features

The 2007 Lincoln Town Car is, first and foremost, big. It has a generous interior and a massive trunk (20.6 cubic feet). The car's main goal is to transport multiple passengers to their destination silently and comfortably. Buyers can also select the L version, which offers a limolike 47 inches of rear legroom thanks to its 6-inch-longer wheelbase.

Driving Impressions

Power from the Town Car's V8 should be adequate for most buyers. The car is able to pass with ease, and freeway cruising at 80 mph is quiet and comfortable. The 2007 Lincoln Town Car has few peers when it comes to transporting large, or large numbers of, people. Besides offering a comfortable ride, this Lincoln is a decent handler -- the steering has some feel to it, and the body doesn't roll too much around corners.
