The LS comes with a choice of two engines, a 232-horsepower 3.0-liter V6 or a 280-horsepower 3.9-liter V8. All models come standard with a five-speed automatic. Three trim levels are available with either engine, each building on the prior in terms of standard equipment. For V6s there is the Luxury model, the Appearance trim level, and the V6 Premium. Even with high-value pricing for the V6, two-thirds of all LS buyers choose the V8. All V8 models feature an automatic transmission with a manual shift control and a firmer suspension for a sportier driving experience. For V8s there is the LS V8 Sport, the V8 LSE, and the LS V8 Ultimate.The Lincoln LS is a carryover from 2004.
