Hi: I am wondering about the towing capacity for my 2004 lincoln towncar. I'm also interested in hearing about others experinces with towing something behind their towncar. Thanks!!:) Kat

i find that surprising. a full frame car like this should pull 3500 or so i would think. is that number from ford?
Hi bmarler. The information jkeaton gave you is correct. It is listed in your Owners Manual. Check the Index under "Towing" for the correct page in your copy.

Good luck.

As others have stated, 2000 lbs (with 200 of that on the hitch) is the official Ford number. 2000 lbs is actually not bad. You can tow a smaller but still comfortable camper or a fishing boat, provided you don't get stupid with the size or weight. If you want to tow a trailer larger than that, you would be happier with a Navigator anyway.

The "last series" Lincoln Town Car, unlike pre-1980 Lincolns, was not built with the idea of towing large objects. In order to provide more socially acceptable fuel economy from a large 5-6 passenger car, everything that could be made lighter was. So, the reserve strength and capacity that the "old" Lincolns had just isn't there anymore.

Good luck.
