The LS is not only the least expensive Lincoln, it's also the most youthful, with tailored, modern styling and crisp road manners. It's the most European in temperament of the Lincolns. Like luxury sedans from Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Jaguar, the Lincoln LS uses rear-wheel drive, giving it that classic driving feel. It rides smoothly, yet feels connected to the road. The V8 engine delivers strong acceleration performance, while the standard V6 has been revised to deliver more power for 2002. The Lincoln LS compares favorably to luxury sports sedans from Europe and Japan, yet it is priced far below them.
