The LS was another fruitful endeavor by Ford in the early 2000s to revitalize the brand. The main thing the car had going for it was a V8 power plant. The automotive press praised the Lincoln LS for its great off-the-line performance, but the reliability of the car was questionable. Still, the LS was one of the last new modern V8-powered sedans to come out of Lincoln. If you are a fan of V8 American power, then this car is well worth it (via The Truth About Cars).
However, if you can get a well-maintained model, you will be in for something luxurious to ride around in. The engineering underneath the LS was shared with the Jaguar models of the time. The Lincoln LS also came in a limited edition sports model, which offered a lot of luxury and performance for the price.
