The luxury car market is in the expansion. There are a growing number of customers who do not want to allocate huge sums of money for ultra luxury models. One of the models that could be a returnee in this class is the 2018 Lincoln Mark LT. This full-size luxury pickup could be re-located on the US market. There are speculations about the possibility of arrival of the third generation of this model. The same sources point to the possibility of globalization of this model. Judging by the information, the new Lincoln Mark LT could appear on the market in the upcoming period. Sales should start on the ground in North America, while later sales should expand to other markets.
The Lincoln brand operates under the auspices of the Ford Motor Company. In 2005, this pickup first appeared on the market. He inherited the Lincoln Blackwood pickup, and in his first year of sales he was much more successful. However, on the market of North America, this pickup was held only until 2008. In some other markets, the second generation of the model was available until 2014, when Lincoln Mark LT stopped producing.
Lincoln Mark LT is based on the Ford F-150 pickup, just as the Mark LT significantly more luxurious than Ford’s brother. Initially, these two models used the same 5.4-liter Triton V8 engine with 300 horsepower. When, in 2008, Ford offered the F-150 Platinum version, Lincoln Mark LT lost in popularity. Namely, the new F-150 Platinum had the same level of equipment as Mark LT. Simply, the introduction of the Platinum version into the F-150 lineup, led to the withdrawal of Lincoln Pickup from the US market.
For the 2010 model year, Lincoln and Ford are trying to revive the Mark LT pickup. The second generation of the model was based on the Ford F-150 Platinum, which was the best-selling model from division. When Ford introduced the 2015 F-150 model, there was no adequate version with the “Lincoln” logo. It was then clear that Lincoln Mark LT retire. However, in the light of new rumors and information, many are eager to see the company’s decision to return this model to the market again.
In its third generation, the 2018 Lincoln Mark LT would find the way to interested buyers. The new full-size luxury pickup would be a refreshment on a pickup truck market. Of course, if rumors are achieved, a new model with significant improvements and a full redesign should be expected in relation to the second generation model.
Like the new generation Ford F-150, and the new Mark LT is expected on the same platform, with reduced vehicle weight and advanced systems and technologies. The interior and exterior design of the vehicle will be a characteristic Lincoln brand. A leather seat, wood trim, keyless ignition, MP3/CD audio system, LCD touch screen display, as well as a superb infotainment system are expected.
2018 Lincoln Mark LT Specs
By itself, this will be a separate model, that is, a unique trim level. That is why many different versions of the new model are not expected. The only thing that can be separated is a short bed and long bed version. As before, the vehicle will have four doors and will be offered only in one cab configuration.
As with the level of equipment, it is not expected to be a big fan in the supply of power generators as well. The 2018 Lincoln Mark LT will offer only one engine. In all likelihood, this will be one of Ford’s EcoBoost Aggregates. Versions with 4×2 and 4×4 drives are expected in the offer.
