The Lincoln LS is a mid-size, rear-wheel drive sedan from Lincoln. It entered production in 1999 as a 2000 model. It was the successor of the Lincoln Mark VIII coupe, which ended in 1998. Later, it also became the successor of the aging Lincoln Continental, where it was discontinued in 2002. From 1999 to 2006, the LS was based on the DEW98 platform, which was shared with the Jaguar S-Type and the Ford Thunderbird.
The LS was refreshed in 2003, continuing production until April 3, 2006, following low sales. About 262,900 LS models were built in its 7-year run. The LS was replaced by the midsize Lincoln MKZ in 2006, and the fullsize Lincoln MKS in 2008.
