As Mike Levine from Pickuptruck.com notes, the Lincoln Mark LT luxury pickup truck was never the hot seller that Lincoln hoped it would be. Does that mean there's no demand for such a truck? No, just not from Lincoln. Perhaps a luxury truck badged with a Blue Oval would work better. Ford appears to agree, as these spy photos of what will be the 2009 Ford F-150 Platinum Edition attest. Unfortunately shots of the exterior don't reveal any details, but peering in through the driver's window gets us a glimpse of the upscale interior. There's a new steering wheel design, chrome-ringed gauges, a new shifter to replace the current baseball bat-like lever, and contrasting white stitching on the brown leather seats. The seats also feature more bolstering than a standard F-150, which suggests the Platinum Edition may be able to take a turn better than the base model.
