Lincoln Mark LT 4dr Short Bed

The Mark LT is based on the Ford F-150 pickup truck and uses the same 5.4 L Triton V8 only with four doors. Traction control is available for the 2006 Lincoln Mark LTs making this model slightly more preferred. The 2006 Lincoln Mark LT still uses a 4-speed automatic transmission just like the 2006 Ford F-150s, which is not exactly preferred by many drivers. The Mark LT is priced at $43,495 and the company hopes to sell 13,000 annually in the United States. In reality, this sales goal is fairly low, indicating that not even Lincoln has a lot of faith in the model. Also, the price is pretty high for the class of vehicle. On the other hand, this price is significantly lower than its main competitor, the Cadillac Escalade EXT. Granted, it is possible that both models are simply overpriced together. The Mark LT has been more successful than the Blackwood in its first year of sales with 10,274 units sold in the first calendar year (February 2005 through February 2006). Consider though that the Blackwood was extremely unsuccessful so to compare sales between the two is frivolous. The Mark LT is outselling the Escalade EXT by a slight margin at this time. For 2007 the Mark LT received a grill facelift and saw the additional of an optional DVD-based navigation system and other luxury and cosmetic features. This luxury pickup truck, which is sort of an oxymoron, is built at Ford's River Rouge Plant in Dearborn, Michigan. This is the same plant that used to manufacture the Ford Mustang. This could either be perceived as good luck or a bad omen. The future really doesn’t look that bright give that the Mark LT is a successor to the failed 2002-only Lincoln Blackwood, which was Lincoln's only other pickup truck.
