    Default Return of the TownCar?

    Recently had a conversation with a Lincoln dealer who has a great livery business. He inferred (after I made some negative references to the MK*s) 2016 would see a return of the LTC, but at much higher stickers.

    Anyone else heard anything about this?

    Years ago, they were toying with the idea of a modern throwback to the 60's era Continentals with suicide doors. I saw a concept at a car show back in 2012 I think. Maybe earlier.
    They pull that off with elegant distinction... wow. With the boomer population nearing retirement age, that may have a chance.

    Hopefully true. There are plenty of pictures of the concept car online. Beautiful big sedan and who doesn't love those suicide doors!

    I can't wait for the new Towncar livery sedan. These cars were workhorses. I still have few of them in a fleet and recently two hit 500k mile mark. Surely, transmission had to be rebuilt at about 300-350k miles but still there is nothing comparable to the old good LTC on a market these days.

    That would be wonderful. Our Tcs last forever and our attempt at a Chrysler 300 resulted in top end problems at 100K miles

    It's a shame the Chrysler 300 cannot hack anything long term mechanically; such a good looking car but no longevity.

    Never liked Chrysler and would not even bother using any of there products in any kind of real commercial application.
    Had a 1999 Chrysler 300M and those cars at 100,000 miles are pretty much toast.

    That would be nice but I wonder how high the sticker price is going to be.

    The MKT is a minivan with swinging doors instead of sliding doors. A full size Lincoln flagship car would be nice.

    I've always said the the Lincoln Towncar is the best limo on the planet. We have had several and never had any issues. Please bring back the reliable tank!
