2018 Lincoln Town Car – Does It Have Place in New Lincoln Lineup?

This article is rumor

When it was discontinued in 2011, Lincoln Town Car didn’t get a successor. At that time Ford decided that Town Car doesn’t need one. In its prime, this model was one of Americas best-selling luxury sedans. More than five years has passed, and the market has shifted away from luxury models than it was the case in 2011. As you know, the market is now, more than ever, craving for SUV’s and crossovers which Lincoln has plenty, and that leaves the question: Where would they fit in with 2018 Lincoln Town Car?

The only attempt to fill the gap left by Town Car’s demise is with MKT Town Car. The idea didn’t live long, and these days we have MKT available only as a crossover. The opportunity to return this sedan onto the market has never been more present. With Lincoln currently going trough redesign for some of their models, most notably MKZ and Continental, they could quickly bring back the Town Car. Where would it fit you ask? Well, it would fit straight in the middle between two models mentioned above, the MKZ and Continental.
