    Ronnie said that the new limo is a Lincoln MKT Crossover. Here's a photo of one. (it's not his actual car) Howard says it lacks all the normal limo bells & whistles but Ronnie says it's loaded w/ touchscreens & voice recognition. It has apple TV an internet hotspot so Howard can use his iPad mini to wirelessly play video on the TV. He still has a divider he can put up so he doesn't have to look at Ronnie but Howard wants mirrors & storage compartments.

    They come in different lengths & I do not know what size he got but here are specs for one.

    Here's the official Linclon MKT Crossover page. It's not specifically for a limo but gives you info about the basic vehicle.

    Here's the backseat that Howard said was like a park bench. Ronnie had them change it out for something more plush & towncar-ish.

    So what do you think? Is it king worthy? Nicer than the old town car? Is it too flashy?

    Looks like a fancy station wagon and I dont know what the old car looked like. The seat you have pictured sure doesnt look that comfy

    I dont think it is to flashy, probably a pretty standard looking limo for Manhattan, no?

    Wow, Howard's old limo really does look dated compared to the picture of the new model.

    And yeah, I see park benches like that all the time. I can't believe bums are able to sleep on that leather.

    All I have to say is the front of that new one, the grill or whatever looks horrible. How on earth did that design get through to the final product???

    Looks like someone is compensating for a small weenie.

    It annoys me every time Howard says that he doesn't want his limousine to attract attention.

    It's a limousine.

    The seat part does look short.
  15. RangersFan Full Member

    the stretch limo definitely attracts attention these days. it's very rare you see them, most opt for town cars or benz's

    In reading about it , it turns out the MKT is the Town Car replacement. You can get the SUV style, the Livery style (which removes the third row pushes the second row back and replaces the Town Car "limo) or stretch it out up to 10'.
    Maybe just maybe Howard just has the Livery model.....

    2012 Lincoln MKT Town Car Livery and Limousine

    Rest easy, the Town Car name lives on.


    As the last Lincoln Town Car is set to roll off the assembly line in August of this year, many in New York and other metropolises are fretting over the future of transportation as they know it. But, as the body-on-frame sedan drives off into the sunset, livery owners and riders will be comforted by a familiar name adorning its replacement: The Lincoln MKT Town Car. Livery and limousine versions of Lincoln’s new full-size people hauler are ready to fill their cargo holds with Samsonites and Halliburtons as they transport anyone from the prom queen to company execs.
    Revealed at 2011 International Limousine, Charter, and Tour show—we’re going to have to rethink our auto-show priorities—the MKT Town Car will be offered in a standard-length “Livery” body style with the option of front or all-wheel drive, as well as a heavy-duty “Limousine” model that is stretchable by up to 10 feet and comes standard with all-wheel drive. Engine info has yet to be revealed (as if passengers even care), but we’re guessing a version of the 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder could power the front-drive livery model, while AWD versions of livery and limo will pack a 3.7-liter V-6 producing about 300 hp. Neither of these boats will be winning any stoplight races, but recall that the V-8 of the original-recipe Town Car sedan was only pushing 260 hp.
    Living with the Livery
    On to what passengers will really care about. Both versions of the MKT Town Car feature a higher ride height for easier ingress and egress, and, in livery models, the second row is moved back 1.5 inches (the third row disappears altogether). The three-person leather seat also reclines and features a switch to move the front passenger seat if even more legroom is desired. A USB port and 110-volt outlet are available to passengers for juicing up mobile devices, which may come in handy if they spend a lot of time using the MKT Town Car’s Wi-Fi system. The audio can be controlled from the rear seat, so you won’t have to suffer through the driver’s choice of entertainment while sitting in traffic.

    Party in Back with the Limo Edition
    Stretchable by up to 120 inches, the limo version of the MKT Town Car is built on what Lincoln says is a specially engineered heavy-duty chassis. It features upgrades to the suspension, electric power steering, and transmission, as well as unique wheels and tires (with a full-size spare), different wheel bearings, standard all-wheel drive, and—thankfully—upsized brakes. Most important, the Limo has vanity mirrors in the headliner. For the safety of all—including other drivers—both MKT Town Cars will list a rear-view camera, Sync (including voice-activated controls), and a blind-spot monitoring system as standard equipment.
    The new MKT Town Car models will begin rolling off the line of the Oakville assembly plant in Ontario, Canada, next spring, and more details will emerge before then. (Presumably, that timing will coincide with production of the MKT hearse.) It’ll surely be a bit of a strange sight when this Town Car pulls up to chauffer you to your destination, but as we say good-bye to the antique Town Car sedan, something just feels right about the fact that a new generation of Town Car will be there for executives on the move.

    Howard deserves one of President Obama's empty motorcade armored limos.

    I actually thought about it after posting and remembered Howard having an Audi A8. That is (was -he drove it into a flood) a pretty cool, understated high end car and the really tacky shit might be a Ronny thing. The long wheelbase versions of the A8 or a Mercedes S class (hell, even a Lexus LS460) says so much more about someone than a limo that looks like some cheese dicks prom rental.
