Yes, the Mark LT is essentially an F150 with different grill and rear lights, etc., but this truck is loaded (by the way the Toyota Avalon and Lexus ES are the same vehicle--so what?). To get same options on F150 you'd have to go Platinum/King Ranch/or high end Lariat. Too bad this truck is so classy for folks to consider this a real work truck--it gets the job done, period. It's also too bad Ford only made them between 2006-08 in the USA, Mexico still had them through 2010. I purchased this vehicle used a year ago w/ 48k miles for my projects and I have not looked back--NO regrets. Low maintenance too. Drivers/owners: "PLEASE READ YOUR MANUAL FOR MAINTENANCE", this is not only for the Mark LT, but any vehicle--dispell the maintenance myths by reading your manual. By the way, a friend has a 1997 Ford Expedition with the same engine and transmission, currently with about 325k miles, no major engine work whatsoever.
The Lincoln Mark LT was the right choice for me. The truck rides like a luxury car, however, has the power and cargo room of a truck. Every aspect of the vehicle has exceeded my expecations. The rear parking sensors help a lot. The truck came with a carpepted bed liner and factory tonneau cover which are extras that I have already put to use. This is a big truck and took some getting used to driving and parking it. It will make you a better driver. I am averaging about 16 miles per gallon with mostly city driving. I like the fact that there are no too many of them on the road. I like the Lincoln chrome and extra touches. I especially like the sunroof, a feature you do not see on very many trucks. I would not hesitate to buy this truck again.
This truck was ahead of its time. The amount of luxury in this truck is amazing, not to mention that it can be utilized for any towing and hauling jobs you need. You will hear that it is a essentially an F-150 with a Lincoln grill... I say... who cares if it is or it isn't, its a nice truck! Bottom line... the truck handles great and looks just as great! Anyone buying one will walk away satisfied!
