Standard safety items include traction control, anti-lock disc brakes, rear park assist, and side air bags.
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. You get the 4.6L V8 engine, rated at 239 horsepower and 287 lb-ft of torque. It is coupled with a smooth-shifting four-speed automatic transmission that sends the power to the rear wheels. You'd be hard pressed to find another four-door sedan that can match the Town Car's 21 cubic feet of trunk space.
Stepping up from the base Signature trim to the Signature Limited, you get heated front seats, interior wood trim, an enhanced sound system, remote opening and closing for the trunk, and a memory feature for the pedals, driver's seat, and exterior mirrors. The designer Series adds on fog lamps, and chrome exterior trim, among other items.
The Town Car Signature L has a stretched wheelbase, allowing for six more inches of rear leg room. This increased rear seat space is garnished with heated rear seats, and rear audio and climate controls, transforming the vehicle into something just short of a private limousine.
Options include FlexFuel capability, high-intensity discharge headlamps, a six-disc CD changer, and a moonroof. The optional DVD navigation system includes a THX audio system and voice activation. Two-tone paint and white sidewall tires can be added to the exterior, as well.
