The Mark LT is a luxury pickup truck that was manufactured by the Lincoln division of American automaker Ford Motor Company. It first went on sale in January 2005 for the 2006 model year. The Mark LT is a successor to the failed 2002-only Lincoln Blackwood (which was never sold in Canada), Lincoln's only other pickup truck, which was only a rear-wheel drive vehicle. The Mark LT is built at Ford's River Rouge Plant in Dearborn, Michigan, on the same line as the closely related Ford F-150. The Mark LT also has optional all-wheel drive.

The Mark LT is based on the Ford F-150 pickup truck. It uses the same 330-cubic-inch, 300 hp (220 kW) 5.4 L Triton V8 and has four doors.

Lincoln had hoped to sell 13,000 Mark LTs annually in the United States. The Mark LT was one of the most heavily-discounted new cars in the United States, with dealers sometimes selling them at more than $10,000 below the MSRP. The Mark LT was more successful than the Blackwood in its first year of sales with 10,274 sold in the first calendar year of sales; February 2005 through February 2006. The 2006 Mark LT outsold the Cadillac Escalade EXT, but the 2007 EXT gained on the Mark LT's sales consistently. [1][2]

UpdatesEdit

For 2007, the Mark LT received a grille facelift, optional DVD-based navigation system and other luxury and cosmetic features. For 2008, the Mark LT received the addition of the color of Light French Silk clearcoat metallic and an optional rearview camera back-up system.

RetirementEdit

For the second-generation Lincoln Mark LT sold exclusively in Mexico, see Ford F-150 Platinum.

Ford ceased sales of the Lincoln Mark LT in the United States and Canada after the 2008 model year.[3] In its place, Ford created an upper-end trim of the 2009 F-150 called Platinum. In Mexico, the Ford F-150 is sold as the Ford Lobo. The Lincoln Mark LT will be a rebadged Ford F-150 Platinum for Mexico beginning in the 2010 model year. There was originally talk of releasing a redesigned Mark LT in 2011-2012, called the MK500 or the LTX, but nothing was planned and it was not accepted.

QualityEdit

J.D. Power Quality listed the Mark LT as overall dependability for all 3 years it was manufactured as "among the best" (with a minimum 4 stars for the 2006 variant in initial quality).
