Abbott’s Limousine adds a MKT Lincoln Town Car to it’s Fleet

Now that the old rounded, full size, rear wheel drive Lincoln Town Car that has dominated the Limousine industry for more than a decade is no longer in production there is an alternative that seems to be gaining some popularity. Lincoln’s new MKT all-wheel drive sedan, well it’s really a crossover and this Lincoln comes in two versions the standard Livery version and the Limousine version that is stretchable up to 10 feet. The MKT Town Car features a higher roof line and an additional 1 and a half inches of additional leg room and if more leg room is requires there is a button on the rear side door to control the front passenger seat. The triple rear seat also reclines and the new Lincoln has more cargo room in the trunk. I see this as a total win, the only concern is if the all-wheel drive will hold up over time.

To replace the old Lincoln Town Car to me is a bit questionable I don’t feel that you can replace such an iconic piece of history with the MKT, it’s hard to even call it a Town Car for me. Maybe if it had a trunk look on the back end, suicide doors, and an opera window for rear passengers that would make me think more Luxury Limo. Possibly a couple fold down work stations with USB, 12 volt and 120 outlets, with a little wifi hot spot inside the car. The grill needs a rework, maybe make it oval and keep the headlights separate. These are just my personal opinion I’m sure that there are people that like the new look, and that’s great to. Maybe a bunch short trips to and from Pittsfield Airport would give us a better idea of what people thought about this Limo.

All that aside Abbott’s Limousine and Livery Service has purchased an MKT Town Car for our fleet. You should make a request to be driven in the latest addition to our fleet, of course this depends on the availability of the new Town Car at the time you schedule your trip.
We would love for you to return and give us your honest opinion about this Limousine so we at Abbott’s Limousine and Livery Service can better accommodate your needs in the future.

    I agree, it’s not what we think of when we hear Lincoln Town Car but it looks like a great car. Any client will know they’re riding in style as soon as they get the first glimpse. Congrats on the new edition. 🙂

    Well we do have 2 weeks of use by our passengers since we put the MKT into our fleet. I am happy and relieved to say, that the satisfaction has been 110%. Everyone has mentioned it’s quiet smooth ride. “Lots of room”, “Great amenities”, “Great luggage space”. “Handsome looks”, and “comfortable seats”! Aree some of the solid comments so far. The great news for us in the Northeast this machine has AWD. Knowing that Lincoln went above and beyond on production, doing things like trying the configuration of 10 different seats, and moving the seats back 4″ and make them recline, is evident while riding this, specifically designed Livery sedan. Having many amenities like WiFi card, USB and I Pod ports, ambient lighting color choices privacy glass in the skylights and sunscreens for the passenger compartment, makes this a positive change. Driving in this car fells much more like a Mercedes S550 than that of the original Executive L that it replaces, but is an impressive Limo Buggy nonetheless. I still enjoy chauffeuring passengers in the Executive L and apprechiate all that that car has done for the traveling public. Im betting too, that this will be a sucessful replacement in the future.

      Wow reading the specks from the debut in both Las Angeles and Here in Las Vegas it seems that there was some misinformation. The MKT that you added to the Abbott’s Limousine Fleet has Wifi, USB and IPod Ports, that is awesome! I’m also impressed that they have included privacy glass and sunscreens also. I’m also impressed that there is 4 inches of additional leg room instead of the 1.5 stated in the specs. that is a tremendous difference. I would still like to see a little more done with the ass end just to make it look like it has a short trunk just to give it a little more distinction from all the other crossovers out there. Really glad you and your clients are happy with your new MKT Lincoln Town Car Limo. Here is to many happy miles!

      How is the fuel mileage by the way with the 6 cylinder?

        Well the nice thing about having no trunk is appreciated when you have climate control for your luggage putting it in the hatch, people don’t have to worry about melting or freezing their belongings. I do agree that the new MKT looks more like a soccer mom’s vehicle, once you enter however, you stop worrying about the image forever! We are already getting 24 miles per gallon hwy with the first 2k break in period.

          That is great mileage and no melted chocolate, definitely a bonus. Really glad you like it and it’s a hit. Great buggy snag!

            When it aint broke dont fix it. That being said, It’s important to reinvest in the fleet in a timely manor and when that purchase is cheered by the customer, it feels like a home run!
