What do you get when you cross a Ford F-150 pickup with a Lincoln Town Car?
According to most of the reviews read by TheCarConnection.com, a 2008 Lincoln Mark LT, that's what. Actually, the truck bears a greater resemblance to its Lincoln cousins, the Aviator and Navigator, according to Cars.com. The company "freshened up" the Lincoln Mark LT for this year, but there were no serious changes from 2007. ConsumerGuide describes it as "essentially a dressed up Ford F-150 SuperCrew crew cab."
According to Autoblog, this truck is "aimed at the Polo Club crowd," which Ford Motors is "hoping to wow...with that Lincoln chrome and glitter, while still offering all the utility of a real truck."
This crew cab is the only body style offered, reports Edmunds; however, there is a choice between a 5.5-foot bed and a 6.5-foot bed.
Edmunds also comments favorably on the interior's "wood accents and handsomely tailored leather seats."
On the other hand, ConsumerGuide says, "Standard leather upholstery is no more impressive than in top-line F-150 models." In any event, Autoblog reports that the interior is "unmistakably Lincoln...branding folks make sure you don't forget by affixing Lincoln badges to the seatbacks and center armrest while spelling out L-I-N-C-O-L-N in bold chrome letters on the ashtray door." In addition, "the seats are covered in black leather with contrasting gray piping."
