Design and Equipment
The exterior of the updated LS includes a signature Lincoln grille with a full-perimeter chrome surround, a simpler bumper fascia design and new lamps. High-intensity-discharge headlamps are available. All LS models have dual chrome exhaust tips.
Inside the 2005 LS are satin nickel accents and a choice of real American walnut burl, aluminum or black lacquer trim.
Storage space inside the LS includes center and overhead consoles and in-door map pockets.
The 2005 Lincoln LS is powered by a choice of two engines: An all-aluminum 32-valve, DOHC 3.9-liter V-8 and a DOHC 24-valve 3.0-liter V-6.
The V-8 produces 280 horsepower and 286 pound-feet of torque, while the all-aluminum DOHC 24-valve 3.0-liter V-6 produces 232 horsepower and 220 pound-feet of torque.
Both engines deliver power through a five-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission. The V-8 cars are fitted with a SelectShiftTM automatic transmission feature, which allows drivers to manually command gear changes.
For 2005, the transmission has been improved for smoother shifts.
The sophisticated chassis of the LS provides the first measure of safety - controllability. In emergency situations, electronic systems such as the available AdvanceTrac® and anti-lock brakes with electronic brake force distribution help maintain control.
Comprehensive safety equipment includes an optional side-curtain air bag system, in addition to the standard dual front and side-impact air bags. Second generation advanced driver and front passenger air bags are equipped with occupant position, weight and saftey-belt usage sensors as part of the Personal Safety SystemTM.
In 2004 LS was named a "Best Pick" by the independent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, based on offset frontal crash testing. In U.S. government testing, LS earned five-star driver and four-star passenger ratings in frontal impact testing, five stars for rear impact and a five-star rollover rating.
