The Lincoln Town Car of the 21st century was unveiled at the '97 New York Auto Show. The dramatically redesigned 1998 Town Car is more than 80% new from the ground up. Along with the bold styling cues that customer focus groups found most appealing, the new Town Car also offers greatly improved performance and handling characteristics.
Although nearly 4 inches shorter than it's predecessor, the '98 Town Car retains the interior spaciousness, luxury and comfort that loyal customers have come to expect. That tradition also continues with a 20 cubic foot trunk that has more than enough room for four sets of golf clubs.
The rear-wheel-drive Town Car comes standard with a 4.6 liter SOHC V8 that develops 200 horsepower. A 220 horsepower version is optional. Combined with a new full perimeter steel frame, new suspension and new steering system, the '98 Town Car is remarkable powerful and agile, while still maintaining a supple ride.
