The Mark LT is a luxury pickup truck from Lincoln. It first went on sale in January 2005 for the 2006 model year. The Mark LT replaced the failed 2002-only Lincoln Blackwood, Lincoln's only other pickup truck. The Mark LT is built at Ford's River Rouge Plant in Dearborn, Michigan (a plant that used to build the Ford Mustang).
The Mark LT is priced at US$43,495 and the company hopes to sell 13,000 annually in the United States. This price is significantly lower than its only real competitor, the Cadillac Escalade EXT. The Mark LT has been more successful than the Blackwood in its first year of sales, with 10,274 sold in the first calendar year of sales, February 2005 through February 2006. The Mark LT is outselling the Escalade EXT by a slight margin, but the redesigned 2007 model Cadillac should outperform the Lincoln.
The Mark LT is based on the Ford F-150 pickup truck. It uses the same 5.4 L Triton V8 and has four doors. Traction control is available for 2006 Lincoln Mark LT's. The 2006 Lincoln Mark LT still uses a 4 speed automatic transmission just like the 2006 Ford F-150's.
