The 3.0L S-Type gets a variety of interior and exterior revisions for 2005, and is now available with an Aluminum interior finish package. The 3.0 is the more affordable of the two S-Type trims, because of its smaller 235 horsepower V-6 power plant. Standard features on this trim include leather seating, automatic dual-zone climate control, wood trim, heated mirrors, automatic headlights, traction and stability control and keyless entry. A CD changer and a moon roof are optional.
The 4.2L S-Type is the higher priced of two 2005 trim levels for this mid-size luxury sedan. A new Vanden Plas Package is available this year, which adds premium leather seats, unique 17-inch wheels and burl walnut trim. Other exclusive standard features include a memory function for the driver''s seat, a moon roof, a premium Alpine audio system with a CD changer, electro-chromatic mirrors and rain-sensing windshield wipers.
The 4.2 liter V-8 delivers 293 horsepower, sending this S-Type from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.3 seconds.
