Lincoln LS. 2000–6 (prod. 262,900 approx.). 4-door sedan. F/R, 2967 cm³ (V6 DOHC), 3934 cm³ (V8 DOHC). Lincoln attempted to challenge the Cadillac Catera and BMW 5er-Reihe (E39), and had a good start, named as Motor Trend’s Car of the Year for 2000. Jaguar-derived engines, with a manual transmission available with the V6. Angular design from German-born Helmuth Schräder. Reasonably good handling with good ride, but more a tourer than a sporting sedan. Mid-term revisions for 2003 model year, when manual cancelled due to lack of demand. The competition developed more quickly, and annual LS sales dwindled into the four figures by 2006.
