The Lincoln Mark LT came as a luxury version of the Ford F-150 pickup truck back in 2005. The second generation was launched in 2010 and the model soldiered on in the U.S. until 2014 when the 2015 F-Series made its debut. Although the Mark LT got axed on the North American market, it went on to become the best-selling model in its class in Mexico. This high-end pickup wasn’t the first Lincoln model in the half-ton pickup truck segment. It actually came as a successor to the Lincoln Blackwood that was killed off in 2002. As for the 2017 Lincoln Mark LT, we expect it to offer a number of subtle improvements that should help it retain its current appeal. We expect the 2017 Lincoln Mark LT to hit the market in the second half of 2016.
2017 Mark LT Features
Just like its predecessor, the 2017 Lincoln Mark LT will be offered in two versions: the short-bed Dearborn and the long-bed Cuauatitlan. Compared to its F-150 cousin, the Mark LT 2017 will offer several exterior styling cues that give it a more upscale appearance. Although it will be available in only one trim level, the list of its standard equipment is quite impressive. It includes some high-end features such as heated front seats, keyless ignition, two-zone climate control, as well as Ford’s latest infotainment system. As for the optional amenities, expect it to offer bed-rail caps with running boards, 18-inch alloy wheels, satellite navigation and a rear-seat entertainment system with two displays.
The upcoming Mark LT will also be replete with a number of luxury materials that include leather upholstery and wood trims. Its exceptionally comfortable cabin can accommodate up to five passengers. Some of the features that set it apart from standard Ford pickups is its stylish instrument panel as well as upgraded seats adorned with contrast stitching.
