Lincoln’s new limos to keep Town Car name image

Working from a proven platform that offers a luxurious interior with modern technologies, Lincoln is today announcing its chauffeur-dedicated MKT Town Car models designed specifically for fleet customers at the 2011 International LCT (Limousine, Charter, and Tour) show.

Two different MKT Town Car body styles, Livery and Limousine, make their debut in near-production form, maintaining Lincoln’s position in the livery industry and building on the success of the well-established Lincoln Town Car sedan.

Comfort is the name of the game with livery operators, so Lincoln has pushed the rear seats of the MKT further back to add 1.5-inches of legroom.

Benefits of the MKT over the previous Town Cars include a taller stance, making entry and egress easier, more interior space, as well as latest SYNC and Wi-Fi amenities for the driver.

Passengers will get USB conectivity a 110-volt power socket in the rear seat center console, and Wi-Fi hotspot capability for mobile tablets, laptops and other devices. The audio system controls are also fully accessible to rear seat passengers.
