Nevertheless, attempting to combine the premium class with the convenience of a pickup truck model did not fully come to life.

The then La pickup, which was the name under which it sold this model was completely different from all other models. It looked very luxurious, the interior was also very high quality.

2018 Lincoln Mark LT Old-New Luxury Pickup

Lincoln Mark LT Concept

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.

Lincoln Mark LT Concept

Overview

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.

Third Generation

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.

2018 Lincoln Mark LT

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.

2018 Ford F-150 Lightning

2018 Ford F-150 Lightning

Everything that happens in Ford Motor Company attracts a lot of attention. This company has convinced us that it is one of the leaders in the automotive industry. All modern solutions and advanced technologies are a great confirmation of this. After the success of the all-aluminum F-150 model, every next move is followed with great attention. The company continued to chew the offer of models that use such technology and aluminum construction. For those who do not use their Ford truck only for working purposes next to the redesigned Ford Raptor, will be available another high-performance version. That’s the 2018 Ford F-150 Lightning. This is not an unknown name. For the third time, the Lightning truck will try to express itself fully.

Many of you will be wondering why Ford in general has the need for a return and a revival of the model, which was withdrawn from the market 12 years ago. Some stories, they must not remain unspoken. Ford Lightning is one of those stories. In 1993, with the collaboration of SVT (special vehicle team), Ford introduced a high performance model based on the F-150 pickup truck. This model was a direct competitor to the Chevy 454SS model. Equipped with a 5.8 L V8 engine that developed a power of 240 hp, it was produced for two years. The engine was combined with a 4-speed automatic transmission, taken from the F-350 model. The break from 1995 to 1999 interrupted the demand for such a model. Ford Lightning was produced in 28,000 copies, and in 2004 it completely disappeared from the scene.

2018 Ford F-150 Lightning

Specs

Why Ford wants the 2018 Ford F-150 Lightning to be marketed when the Ranger pickup model returns to the US market? Lightning truck, in addition to its fantastic performance, had a specific suspension and frame of construction. When he returned to the market for the second time, Ford Lightning went through the phase of engine change, as well as a series of modifications concerning the suspension. Then the vehicle powered a 5.4-liter 360-horsepower engine in combination with 4-speed AT.

As Ford’s biggest future surprise, we expect the 2018 Ford F-150 Lightning pickup truck. What has failed him, and what Ford can now offer with this name is a lightweight construction. Aluminum architecture, 500-600 pounds less than the 2004 model, a new engine and much more hp than it had. 2018 Ford Lightning is most likely to be equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine. With the new transmission, this new 2017 Raptor engine provides nearly 450 horsepower. You will agree that no one expects more. Sometimes ‘funniest’ pickup truck on the market, will return the smile on the face of many, and with less ‘horse’.

2018 Ford F-150 Lightning Release

The official specification information and the form in which the Lightning model will appear will not be available yet. Some sources report that the 2018 Ford F-150 Lightning is likely to return to a regular cab, short-bed configuration. Regardless of all the secrets yet, the new Lightning model can only be better than the one we had the opportunity to meet. The improvements that Ford recently leveraged through the pickup truck segment surpassed all expectations.

2018 Dodge Rampage Rumors and Concept

2018-Dodge-Rampage

Since Dodge presented the concept of the studio, the pickup model of the Rampage, there are all-inclusive speculations about the appearance of the serial model. The concept was introduced in 2006 in Chicago. Many expect the company to offer the 2018 Dodge Rampage series in response to new competition models in the segment. This would be a return to another known model. Namely, in the 80s of the last century, Dodge produced a subcompact pickup truck called Rampage.

When presented Rampage concept, opened many questions about his fate. Although many expect his entry into the serial production, it is not the most certain. The concept has the same dimensions as the RAM 1500 pickup truck. However, the dimensions are greater than the Dodge Rampage, which was previously produced. This opens up two possibilities. The first is that the 2018 Dodge Rampage will be offered as a separate version of the current Dodge RAM pickup. Another solution is to reduce the dimensions of the future model in order to complement the company’s offer in the pickup segment.

2018-Dodge-Rampage

2018 Dodge Rampage Specs and Features

Under the hood should be found the same engine that is seen in the concept version. It’s a 5.7-liter HEMI V6 engine with Chrysler’s Multi-Displacement System. The basic offer will be a version with FWD, which is not characteristic of this type of vehicle.

The 2018 Rampage series is expected to have all the systems and benefits that are seen in the concept of the model. The presented features, with the concept, are extremely interesting. This could be the first pickup to use Stow ‘n’ Go features specific to minivan models. This system makes it possible to overlap and move the seat in order to increase the useful space within the vehicle.

Design

Dodge’s exterior designer, Scott Krugger, said that the Rampage concept is designed for people wanting to drive a pickup truck, and they do not have the feeling of being in such a vehicle. He added that Dodge Rampage was designed for non-traditional truck buyers. In any case, the vehicle has a very modern design and innovative and non-traditional solutions.

2018 Dodge Rampage interior concept

The possibility of increasing bed space is also interesting. Combined with a retractable rear window and midgate, this allows the bed space to expand into the cabin, at the expense of the passenger space. There is also a luggage compartment composed of waterproof materials, as well as an integrated loading ramp.

The 2018 Dodge Rampage will feature a muscular and stylish front-end design, with double-muscle flaked fenders. In addition to innovative design and interesting solutions, the car features exceptional functionality and comfort. All in all, the Rampage makes an excellent combination of performance full-size pickup truck and comfort and comfort of the family minivan.

2018 GMC Sierra 1500 with more style

2018 GMC Sierra 1500

Currently available information suggests the arrival of a new pickup model from the General Motors family. This is the basic version of the GMC Sierra model, that is, the 1500 Series. Similar to what has been confirmed and seen with the all-new 2018 GMC Terrain, it is expected in the 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 pickup. For now, it is not clear whether all versions of this model will go through the process of improvement. More precisely, it is not confirmed whether the base Sierra 1500 model will arrive in the new generation, or “new clothes” and 2500 HD and 3500 HD models.

The information available so far indicates the arrival of a new generation of GMC Sierra pickup truck models. The sources from which this information comes out say that the new GMC Sierra 1500 will be presented by the end of 2017. After that, the new model will begin selling. Significant changes and improvements have been announced for the new generation of the model. For now, it’s just about them.

2018 GMC Sierra 1500

Changes

First, the information that the new generation of the GMC Terrain SUV model has received three brand new turbocharged engines. Something similar is expected in the new GMC Sierra model. However, the most rumor and information is related to the cosmetic changes of the new model, and to the new transmission.

2018 GMC Sierra is expected with a new 10-speed automatic transmission. This model is just one of the new GMC vehicles that will be available with this transmission. However, this transmission system is not new to the GM lineup. Namely, Chevrolet has already offered its Camaro ZL1 with a new 10-speed automatic gear box. With this model, the new transmission proved to be a great choice.

A total of seven, or more, new GM models will be equipped with this new transmission. Basically, these are models that are equipped with a RWD drive system. Namely, the new 10-speed AT is the most compatible with the RWD system. For this reason, the GMC Sierra 1500 and Chevy Silverado 1500 are some of the models that will be equipped with a new gearbox.

2018 GMC Sierra 1500 interior

Design and Body Look

All that is said, and what follows with the new 2018 GMC Sierra 1500, also applies to the new Chevy Silverado truck. As far as the vehicles look, the biggest changes and clutter are expected at the front of the vehicle. There is an upgraded grille, as well as a new headlights design. Also, the level of comfort and comfort, as well as higher quality materials, is expected. All in all, sometimes working vehicles, and nowadays more and more family cars. This is not the case only with GM’s pickup truck model. Trends and needs are changing. The one who follows them stays in the game.

What attracts additional attention is the announcement that the new generation of this model will receive a large number of elements from aluminum. This trend has already been introduced by some pickup models. First of all, Ford did it. The rumors of this move by the company are further fueled by the fact that GM invested less than a billion US dollars in its own Flint factory in Michigan.

2018 GMC Sierra 1500 Specs and Price

The current model offers a 6.2-liter EcoTec3 V8 engine with 285 horsepower and 308 lb-ft, for this aluminum-block 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 with 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft, as well as the 4.3-liter EcoTec3 V6 engine with 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque.

We mentioned that the new Sierra could go the same way as the 2018 Terrain, which got three new powertrain aggregates. For now, there is no information about such changes in the 2018 Sierra 1500 Series. Regardless of what the new model’s development path is, and what kind of changes it brings, the price should remain at the level of the 2017 model.
