The 2009 Town Car remains Lincoln's entry into the luxury sedan segment. Accordingly, it is very well equipped with power leather seating, cornering lamps, automatic headlamps, Keyless entry, heated exterior mirrors with a left-hand auto-dimming feature as well as a memory function, a 6-disc CD changer, dual-zone climate control, power adjustable pedals with memory, remote trunk closing and an electrochromic rearview mirror.
Standard safety items include traction control, anti-lock disc brakes, rear park assist, and side air bags.
The 2009 Lincoln Town Car also includes security features to prevent theft. The SecuriLock Passive Anti-Theft System prevents the engine from being started unless a coded key, programmed to your vehicle, is used. The Town Car is also equipped with Standard Perimeter Alarm System, which automatically arms when the key is removed from the ignition.
Underneath the Town Car you'll find a fully boxed, hydroformed steel frame that provides a stiff platform. This allows the engineers to tune the suspension for a remarkably comfortable ride. You'll also find rack and pinion steering that adds a delightful sharpness to the Town Car's reflexes.
The Town Car comes equipped with only one powertrain: the 4.6L V8 engine, rated at 239 horsepower and 287 lb-ft of torque. It is coupled with a smooth-shifting 4-speed automatic transmission that sends the power to the rear wheels. The Town Car's 21 cubic feet of trunk space is among the biggest in this segment.
Stepping up from the Town Car Signature Limited to the Town Car Signature L gives you a stretched wheelbase, allowing for six more inches of rear leg room. This increased rear seat space is garnished with heated rear seats, rear audio and climate controls, and other backseat luxuries, transforming the vehicle into something just short of a private limousine.
Options include flex-fuel capability, high-intensity discharge headlamps and a trunk organizer.
The 2009 Lincoln Town Car has a base price of $46,760 and come with 4-year/50,000 mile basic warranty and 6-years/ 70,000 mile road side assistance. The Town Car achieves a fuel economy of 12 mpg city and 17 mpg highway.
There are no significant changes to the 2009 Lincoln Town Car. It is available by special order only now, as Lincoln pushes the car mostly towards the professional/fleet market.
