Ford sends Lincoln Town Car to the tar pits

Ford sends Lincoln Town Car to the tar pits


Its styling is a little old fashioned. Its interior design doesn’t make use of brushed aluminium and fancy gauges. You could say that the Lincoln Town Car is a bit of a dinosaur in the world of automotive innovation, and as such, you can say that it is now extinct. The Town Car was being pumped out of Ford’s plant in Wixom, Michigan, but with the closure of that location, the Lincoln Town Car chapter in Ford’s history is drawing to a close as well.

Contrary to earlier rumors and reports, Ford is not planning on moving production of the Town Car to a nearby plant in St. Thomas, Ontario in Canada. The Ontario plant currently produces other Ford vehicles that fall into the same segment as the Town Car, including the Ford Crown Victoria and Mercury Grand Marquis, both of which are popular purchases for police forces.

The Lincoln Town Car is done. Analyst Erich Merkle is getting ready to “put the fork in it because there’s no other place they can go with it.”
