The 2008 Lincoln Mark LT has good interior room and higher-quality materials, according to reviews researched by TheCarConnection.com.
A five passenger, four-door "club cab" is the body style available. According to Cars.com, the Nudo leather seating surfaces "feature French-style pleating and incorporate a quilted pattern insert." Despite the sticker price, one finds "manual seat-back adjusters and lumbar controls," according to Autoblog. Nonetheless, the seats are "comfortable, easily adjustable, and offered greater lateral support than any Ford truck."
At 6.5 feet, the Lincoln Mart LT's bed is more generous than that of rival Cadillac Escalade EXT, according to Autoblog. As for in-cab storage, ConsumerGuide reports that the "rear-seat bottoms tip up to increase storage, but seat-frame corners jut into cargo space." On the plus side, "Generously sized map pockets can be found in all doors."
The 2008 Lincoln LT's materials seem to be more "bling" than substance; Autoblog and Cars.com both note that "contrast-stitched leather covers the center armrest and instrument cluster hood," but "while that's all very nice, the interior materials are still lacking." ConsumerGuide complains that compared to "top-line F-150 models," the Lincoln Mark LT "puts a slightly tonier finish on interior panels, but they're a veneer over the same hollow-feeling, hard-plastic surfaces as in its Ford cousin." They also observe that the "glovebox and ashtray doors and the console-mounted transmission shift lever suffer from a particularly low-budget movement and feel." Car and Driver says "the dash and the center stack only look Lincoln in color availability, as the layout and materials are the same in an F-150," and suggests that one should "think of it as a Ford dressed for a black-tie dinner."
Edmunds says that the interior accommodations are "plush...[with] smooth and quiet ride." ConsumerGuide agrees, but mentions that the "engine does roar in rapid acceleration."
While the 2008 Lincoln Mark LT's comfort levels are acceptable, its cousin the Ford F-150 may provide you with the same ease at a lower cost.
