Large sedans aren’t as popular as they used to be but that doesn’t stop car experts to speculate about the possible comeback of the iconic sedan. The Town car has always been a synonym for a large sedan and the last time we saw it was in 2011. If we look at the current situation on the market, it actually makes a lot of sense to see the 2021 Lincoln Town Car. One one side, key rivals from Cadillac and Chrysler are getting out of this segment. On the other, Lincoln has always been a popular fleet choice, so this could be a perfect choice for all this who doesn’t care too much about today’s crossovermania.
When it comes to the overall design, we presume that the new 2021 Lincoln Town Car would stick to its roots, which means a large sedan layout, which would stretch from mainstream to premium luxury segment in terms of a trim level variety. The latest reports suggest we could see it already in the next year.
2021 Lincoln Town Car Redesign
As we’ve just mentioned, the new 2021 Lincoln Town Car would stick to its predecessors in terms of the base design. Therefore, we would see a full-size sedan, which would probably share most of its design characteristics with the new Lincoln Aviator. The two models would probably share the platform and many mechanical parts. Of course, we are talking about the new CD6 architecture, with an RWD layout and more than 120 inches in wheelbase.
When it comes to the styling, we don’t expect any radical mode, at least when it comes to the front end, which is expected to follow the brand’s current design language, which was established with models like Navigator and Continental. Some reports suggest there could be both standard and long-wheelbase versions offered.
When it comes to interior design, we count on a lot of inspiration from the current lineup, particularly from the latest crossovers, such as Aviator. This would mean a dashboard that features a rather classic dashboard, with classic design solutions and a little bit of old-school approach. Of course, that doesn’t mean this sedan will lack any modern tech features, including a large tablet-like touchscreen, which is something Lincoln prefers these days.
Still, the strongest point of this model will be the amount of space, especially in terms of the second-row legroom. As we already mentioned, a long-wheelbase model is expected as well, which will provide even more space inside the cabin.
2021 Lincoln Town Car Engines
In the past, this sedan was known for the use of a large and powerful V8 engine, which was able to provide a relaxed and cushioned ride. However, if we consider that fuel economy is everything these days, so the 2021 Lincoln Town Car would rather come with something smaller and more efficient. Of course, we think of a new 3.0-liter V6 EcoBoost, which already powers the Aviator. This engine is good for pretty impressive 400 horsepower. Of course, the power would go through a new 10-speed automatic gearbox.
Some reports also suggest that the new 2021 Lincoln Town Car could be one of Lincoln’s first models to start with massive electrification. Of course, we would probably see a PHEV version first, most likely the same one that can be found in the new Explorer. Furthermore, we could easily see an all-electric version in the future.
2021 Lincoln Town Car Release Date and Price
The 2021 Lincoln Town Car is just a rumor at the moment, so you should but a big question mark behind all those reports that suggest this model could hit the market already in the next year. If it arrives, our rough estimation would be a starting price between 40.000 and 50.000 dollars.
