2007 Lincoln Mark LT Review

By

Unwilling to watch Cadillac's Escalade EXT go unchallenged, Lincoln has created a luxury pickup of its own. Based on the popular Ford F-150, the Mark LT combines the plush interior of a Lincoln sedan with a versatile pickup bed perfect for hauling jet skis, ATVs or a new 50-inch flat-screen TV. Available only in a Crew Cab configuration, the Mark LT features a long list of standard luxury amenities and offers the option of four-wheel drive. Whether the Lincoln name carries enough clout to justify the extra cost over a loaded King Ranch or Harley-Davidson Ford F-150 is yet to be seen, but in a country where status is sometimes everything, it's a good bet the Mark LT will find enough buyers to keep the production line up and running.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you're accustomed to riding in comfort and arriving in style, but need the cargo versatility of an open pickup bed, the Mark LT might be the answer to your dreams.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you're looking for the latest in luxury and safety, the Mark LT's lack of available side-impact and head-curtain airbags, as well as stability control, places it behind the Cadillac Escalade EXT.

What's Significant About This Car?

The 2007 Mark LT receives a new grille and headlamp treatment as well as more chrome around the rear taillights, bumpers and doors. An auto-dimming driver's sideview mirror becomes standard, while new options include DVD navigation and a six-and-a-half-foot bed.

Driving the Mark LT

Driving Impressions For a luxury vehicle capable of towing a very sizeable boat or horse trailer, the Mark LT delivers an acceptably smooth and quiet highway ride. Like many traditional luxury vehicles,...

however, this heavyweight rides better than it handles. Putting the throttle all the way to the floor won't deliver startling performance, but the powerful V8 and four-speed automatic transmission work well together in delivering smooth acceleration that's more than adequate around town or on a highway cruise. As long as you climb into the cab with an appreciation (and maybe a need) for the Mark LT as a fully functional pickup, you should find it plenty luxurious.

Standard Stereo
Standard on the Mark LT is an impressive AM/FM/6CD/MP3 sound system that delivers crisp, powerful music through six speakers and a subwoofer.

Tailgate Assist
The Mark LT's large tailgate features a built-in torsion bar that makes both opening and closing it surprisingly easy.

Upgraded less with wood and more with chrome and leather, the Mark LT's contemporary, stylish and comfortable interior is better described as modern than plush. The sophisticated design rivals the new Cadillac Escalade EXT's cabin, and neat stitching on the leather-covered shift lever is a nice touch (even if it isn't really hand stitched). Whether you find the contrasting piping on the seats stylish or not, you'll appreciate the well-cushioned comfort those seats offer. Rear-seat passengers are also in luck, as full-size rear doors open up to full-size rear legroom.

Exterior

Start with a Ford F-150 SuperCrew, add a big chrome grille, big taillights, more chrome and nicely-styled 18-inch wheels, and you've got the Mark LT. The five-and-a-half-foot-long cargo bed is deep and wide and should provide plenty of room for the Mark LT's most truck-like tasks, but if you need more room, a six-and-a-half-foot bed is available. The mechanically-assisted tailgate is easy to open and close.

Notable Equipment
Standard Equipment

Included as standard on both the two- and four-wheel-drive Mark LT is a 300-horsepower V8, a four-speed automatic transmission, leather seating, ebony wood trim, power and heated front seats with driver's-side memory, easy-lift tailgate, AM/FM/6CD/MP3 premium sound system, Electronic Automatic Temperature Control, electronic message center, remote keyless entry with door keypad and integrated garage opener. Safety equipment includes front airbags and four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes (ABS).

Optional Equipment

Upgrading to the four-wheel-drive Mark LT adds only the shift-on-the-fly four-wheel-drive system. Also available are a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, DVD navigation radio, 20-inch chrome wheels, power sliding rear window, power-adjustable pedals, power moonroof and a Reverse Sensing System.

Under the Hood

The only powertrain decision to make when purchasing a Mark LT is between two- or four-wheel drive. Although four-wheel-drive costs about $3,500 more, the enhanced traction helps to offset the truck's lack of an available stability control system. The Mark LT offers legitimate, truck-like hauling and towing capacities of 1,620 pounds and 8,600 pounds, respectively.

5.4-liter V8
300 horsepower @5000 rpm
365 lb.-ft. of torque @ 3750 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 15/19 (2WD), 15/19 (4WD)

I paid 13,000 two years ago and still selling for 16,000"

"This is a very fancy Ford F-150. It looks striking compared to any F-150. Mine is in White Chocolate and has been a great truck. It will handle a foot of snow or haul a 6,000 pound horse trailer with ease. I wished they still made them for the US market. I would be buying another one."

"I have had the '07 for 6 years. It has been a workhorse now with 147,000 miles. I work as an agronomist and am in and out of the fields all the time and haul my big Honda 700 4-wheeler everywhere I go. With the Mark LT, I ride in comfort and style. I haven't had it in the shop for anything but maintenance and tires. Its time for an upgrade but I just can't bring myself to let this one go."

"I've now owned this Mark-LT for 18 months. This vehicle has all the comfort that anyone could want from a "Truck". It is great for light duty around the house. It gas milage is what I expected 15 - 17 mixed around town and highway. Highway can get 18 if you watch your speed. Even though it is 6 years old I get compliments all the time that it looks like a "new truck". Highway driving at crusing speed is fun and very comfortable. 4x4 was nice to have when driving in a snow storm and I had to dodge around cars and trucks stopped on the highway. It is just a great truck all around in all kinds of weather."

"I always felt this was the best looking pickup built. I got this truck about 15 months ago. I've put 18000 miles on it including a trip to New England and back. I've had no problems, nice ride, and good mileage for a large 4 door truck. There are not a lot of them so it does get noticed, and I've had many comments on how sharp it looks. I think it will hold it's resale value better than most."
