Watch a Vintage Video Review of the Lincoln Mark LT

Mark LT 2

Even though lux pickups are at an all-time high these days, they’re not new. Ford’s put them on the market before now. First, there was the interesting but functionally flawed Lincoln Blackwood of the early 2000s. Then, a few years later, there was the Lincoln Mark LT.

Using the underpinnings of the Ford F-150 as a foundation meant the Mark LT had a 300-horsepower 5.4-liter V8 under its hood and a console-mounted four-speed automatic in the center of its front seating compartment.

Being a Lincoln, it had plenty of chrome, especially on the lower part of its doors. It also had a quiet cabin and a smooth ride. The two-tone interior of the truck in the following video is eye-catching and attractive, although its lack of satellite navigation is puzzling.

It would be interesting to see a modern Lincoln version of the F-150, but given all of the bells and whistles and high-end materials that’ll be in the 2016 F-150 Limited, there might not be a need or room for one. What do you think?
