The Ultimate in the 2005 Lincoln LS V8 Ultimate signifies all the standard features packed into this rear-wheel drive luxury sport sedan. Fueled by a 280-hp, 3.9-liter V8 that delivers 286 lb-ft of torque with a 5-speed shiftable automatic, the 2005 LS V8 Ultimate features a sport suspension, front and rear independent suspension, 17-inch chrome wheels, traction control, and 4-wheel ABS brakes. The Ultimate adds AdvanceTrac stability control. Dual front-side airbags, automatic headlights, foglights, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror round out the safety features. Options include parking assist and side curtain airbags.
In addition to full power features, power front seats with driver's memory, leather upholstery and trim, a CD changer, cruise control, keyless entry, trip computer, a security system, and automatic climate control, the 2005 LS V8 Ultimate also comes with a sunroof, heated and cooled front seats, and wood interior trim. There aren't many options left, but you can boost your sound system with THX, and add a navigation system, parking assist, adjustable pedals, a roof rack, and heated second row seats. The LS holds up to 102 cubic feet of cargo, and rates highly in crash tests, but only makes a disappointing 17/24 mpg.
