When it comes to driving a luxury vehicle, you may think you have to sacrifice performance for style. Find out why that’s not always the case at this week’s auto auction, where we’re featuring a 2005 Lincoln LS, a luxury sedan designed to be sleek and stylish while still delivering great performance.
Considered the sportiest car in Lincoln’s lineup, the LS was introduced to the market in 1999. It was Lincoln’s first rear-wheel drive sport luxury vehicle, and was well received for its classy, polished appearance, which modeled the image of a European sports sedan. The 2005 Lincoln LS we’re featuring is part of the second generation of this popular model.
Consumers and experts alike have praised the 2005 Lincoln LS for its surprisingly powerful performance. Kelley Blue Book users give the 2005 LS an overall rating of 7.5 out of 10 for its comfortable interior, sporty performance, and easy handling. In 2000, the LS also made headlines when it was named Motor Trend’s Car of the Year.
With a standard automatic transmission and V6, 3-liter engine, the LS offers both power and easy handling, creating a refined and comfortable driving experience.
The 2005 Lincoln LS has also received very high ratings for its safety. It was named “Best Pick” for its safety after earning a perfect score in the Institute for Highway Safety’s frontal offset crash test, side impact and rollover tests, which led to CNBC rating the LS as “One of the five safest cars of all time.”
In addition to earning top marks in safety, the Lincoln LS also receives praise for its fuel economy. This model gets an average fuel economy of 17 MPG in the city and 24 MPG on the highway, meaning you can spend more time driving and less time at the pump.
