Year-to-year changes[edit | edit source]
1991[edit | edit source]
The Town Car, with its body-on-frame construction and traditional rear-wheel drive, represented luxury from the old school, just like its major competition, the Cadillac Fleetwood. The Townie was available in three series, Executive, Signature Series and Cartier Designer Series, with standard or ride-control suspension.
1995[edit | edit source]
For 1995, there is some mild exterior freshening, with new crystalline clear-lens headlamps, new taillights and new bumper treatments. The outside mirrors are larger, the driver's side has an automatic dimming feature, and also a memory feature that's tied into the seat's memory buttons.
There are new 16-in. aluminum wheels that come standard on Cartier models and are an option on Signature.
In the never-ending quest to come up with new twists for the feature list, the Town car offers an industry first, optional heated seats with separate controls for the seatback and cushion. A really helpful feature is the visor-mounted integrated garage door opener that is standard on Signature and Cartier Series cars: Three buttons mounted nearly flush on the visor can be programmed to learn the frequency, and replace the function, of three separate handheld remote garage opener units.
A new, more contemporary instrument panel with a digital compass debuts this year, as does a new 2-spoke wheel with remote controls for audio and climate control, on Signature and Cartier models. A dash-mounted switch selects one of three steering effort levels. The power antenna is gone, replaced by an antenna that's embedded in the windshield glass.
