It’s been a while since we saw this luxury truck last time. With two quite short production cycle, this model didn’t leave any important mark in the automotive industry. Still, the company wants to bring it back. Things on the market are little bit different these days and this segment looks like something that has a lot of potentials. Therefore, the third generation of this truck is about to come, most likely next year as the 2019 Lincoln Mark LT. The first generation was in production for a very short time, between 2006 and 2008. Sales were that slow that the all-new model didn’t last for more than two years. However, it became very popular in Mexico, so Lincoln decided to offer the second generation on this market as well. This model was in production between 2010 and 2014.
2019 Lincoln Mark LT Design
This revival should bring some quite familiar design characteristics. As you probably know, previous two generations are practically nothing more than the F-150 truck, with more luxury and slightly different front end. Most experts expect to see something similar in the new Lincoln pickup truck. In practice, this would mean the same platform and body, full of HSS and aluminum, for significant weight savings. Mechanics of two trucks will be completely the same, including the same engines in the offer. Same goes to the overall shape, with the same proportions. Expect the same wheelbase and overall dimensions, as well as the overall look. Most likely, we will see slight modifications at the front once again. This would mean different grille and maybe some tweaks to areas like bumpers and headlights.
Could 2019 Lincoln Mark LT Share More with the Navigator?
Some reports suggest a completely different approach this time. It looks like we are about to see a truck that is much closer to the company’s flagship SUV than before. It looks like the company wants to make Lincoln Mark LT 2019 more luxurious and more exclusive and there is no better way than to take inspiration from the Navigator. This would mean completely same design solutions, especially at the front, where we should see an identical face. Things should be pretty much the same all away to the B-pillar, if not further. Does this mean that the Lincoln pickup truck is also going to feature independent rear suspension, it is hard to say at the moment.
2019 Lincoln Mark LT Interior
No matter what is the company’s plan, the interior will go in the same direction. This means that the Lincoln Mark LT 2019 will be all about luxury. If the company decides to just rebadge the F-150, we will probably see a familiar dashboard layout, but with several new touches. Of course, we will also see significant improvements in terms of materials quality and standard equipment. On the other side, a Navigator-based model would come with the same cabin layout as the famous SUV. In practice, this would mean a nice combination of modern and retro elements, a combination of soft-touch materials and vintage wood trim. Of course, the dashboard would be highlighted by a huge touchscreen at the center stack, while the instrument cluster would keep a big of an old-school flavor.
2019 Lincoln Mark LT Features
In terms of standard equipment, we can expect lots of latest technologies, including things like a 10-inch audio system, navigation, smartphone integration, 14-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, USB and much more. Count on a long list of safety features as well. This includes advanced systems like blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, forward collision alert, a 360-degree camera and much more.
2019 Lincoln Mark LT Engine
There is no more place for eight-cylinder engines in Ford Motor Companies. Such engines are a rare thing these days. Even the F-150 is available with only one engine of this kind, with the famous Coyote. Therefore, we have no doubt that the 2019 Lincoln pickup truck will stick to six cylinders, just like the Navigator and most F-150 models. We count on a familiar 3.5-liter V6 with around 450 horses, the same one that powers the SUV sibling. Of course, count on the same 10-speed automatic transmission as well. Moreover, we expect similar ratings in terms of towing capacity too. To remind you, the Navigator can tow up to 8.700 pounds, while the new Lincoln Mark LT 2019 should be a little better.
2019 Lincoln Mark LT Release Date and Price
It is still early to talk about some more precise release date and price. Still, we could make some rough estimations. Though we are still waiting for the official confirmation, the new 2019 Lincoln Mark LT could come already in the next year. The price would probably go around 65/70.000 dollars for the base model.
