Lincoln LS Models and LS History

In 2000, Lincoln introduced a new sports sedan called the LS. It was based upon other platforms and was developed alongside of Jaguar. It would be the first car made by the company that was not a full-sized car in over twenty years. It offered the creature comforts and style made famous by the carmaker, with a robust 3.9-liter V6 engine powering it that could make 252 horsepower. For 2001, traction control was made standard across the board, several new packages were introduced offering varying upgrades, four new exterior colors were introduced and complementary maintenance was offered, included for the first 36,000 miles. The 2002 body year offered an upgraded LSE package that featured larger wheels, sportier exterior with spoiler, chromed dual exhaust tips and rocker panels, amongst many other sporty features. An optional Motorola Timeport mobile phone was also added to the lineup of optional upgrades for this year. The 2003 body year saw over 500 updates made to this car, namely to the various optional upgrades and trim levels. A drive-by-wire throttle increased fuel economy, the BrakeAssist feature was updated, and a slew of interior updates were made. 2004 saw the addition of the Sirius Satellite Radio option, an enhanced suspension for a smoother ride and a more fluid transmission. The only updates for the 2005 body year were enhanced shifting and an updated fascia in the front. In 2006, the V6 was discontinued, leaving only room for the V8. The carmaker added two new optional packages and made some minor exterior style updates, too.
