Lincoln LS Sales Figures

Lincoln LS

The Lincoln LS was a four-door, five-passenger luxury sedan that was manufactured and marketed by Ford’s Lincoln division over a single generation from 1999–2006. Introduced in June 1999 for model-year 2000, the LS featured rear-wheel drive and near 50/50 weight distribution and was available with a V8 or V6, the latter initially offered with a manual transmission.

The LS shared the Ford DEW98 platform with the Jaguar S-Type and the Ford Thunderbird. It was designed by Peter Horbury and was intended to be a more European-style luxury sedan than previous Lincolns. The LS was available in two trim levels: Luxury and Signature. The Luxury trim came standard with a 3.0L V6 engine, while the Signature trim came standard with a 3.9L V8 engine. Both engines were mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission. The LS was praised for its handling, performance, and luxurious interior. It was also praised for its fuel economy, which was good for a luxury sedan of its time. However, the LS was criticized for its high price tag, which started at $35,000.

The Lincoln LS was discontinued after the 2006 model year due to slow sales. It was replaced by the Lincoln MKZ, which is a larger and more luxurious sedan.
