We've known for about a year that Ford wouldn't revive the Lincoln Mark LT after the model's current run ended in late 2008 with the introduction of the latest F-150. That being the case, you might be left scratching you head as to why we're seeing spy shots of a new Mark LT, complete with the most recent rendition of the automaker's toothy grille. Apparently, there's still a market for expensive luxury trucks in Mexico, and that's where this truck will be headed in the not-so-distant future.
Those buyers from our southern neighbors still lining up for a Lincoln pickup will need to pony up an extra few pesos for the privilege of driving off the lot in a new truck wearing a badge from the automaker named after Honest Abe. If you're living outside Mexico and feeling left out... don't. After spending a little time ogling Ford's latest F-150 in its top-level Platinum clothing, we're don't think Americans are going to miss the Lincoln Mark LT one bit. Thanks for the tip, Adam!

      Ugliest Truck EVER
      • 5 Years Ago
      That thing fell from a super giant ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down...
      Wow, it's up there with Pontiac Aztek!

      How long before we see pictures of one of these full of bullet holes from automatic weapons fire, in news reports from Mexico? Hope they produce an up-armored version.

      I hope that Ford doesn't make the same mistake that GM did with the G3 (crossing the border). I vomit in your general direction, horrible-looking truck!

      Man, Horbury, you've gone too far on this one. Ever think of early retirement?

      Say what you guys want about it, but when I was in Mexico (Cancun) in November, there were Mark LT's EVERYWHERE. I saw more Mark LT's than I did any other truck combined. People were crazy about that truck down there, which was surprising, because it doesn't seem like anyone liked it in the States. I live in a relatively affluent area of New Jersey, and I've only seen like two of these.

      I did see a Lincoln Blackwood a couple weeks ago, though.

        I owned one, it was for me a much better looking variant of the F150 and I liked the truck. I really don't think you can look at the previous MarkLT and call it ugly. The problem with it was it had nothing that a luxury vehicle should have, like a backup camera, navigation, air conditioned seats (which my Aviator had and you must try if you get a chance) and more yet it was priced as if it had these things.
        • 5 Years Ago
        I agree. The Mark LT was just a gussied up F-150, and for the price, there were better alternatives in the luxo-SUV market. Most of the people buying the Mark LT weren't buying them for utility, and hence, didn't NEED the bed. An SUV with all those amenities could be had for roughly the same price.

        I do believe that the previous Mark LT was a MUCH better looking vehicle than the current Navigator. I just HATE that stupid grille.

      What most people commenting here don't understand (and probably never will) is that people all over the world have different perceptions of what looks good and what doesn't. If you don't get this truck, then you've never driven through East Los Angeles, never lived in California, never visited the interior or Mexico, or any other Latin American country. I've traveled alot and have learned that "Murican" taste ain't the only taste on the planet.

        I'm mexican, I live en Mexico, and I HATE this. With all my heart.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Believe me, it won't sell. People here would rather buy a Ford Harley Davidson truck or a Mark LT. Normally if people can afford a pick up in that price range, then it can afford a bit of good taste.

        If there's a zone where people would buy this, it is in the border. But I don't think there will be enough demand for it. I really hope it dies soon lol.

        I'm European and I STRONGLY dislike this abortion.
        I will let you know what ppl say as soon as it finds its way on some web in our country.

      This is obviously payback for Mexico being able to enjoy the latest gen Focus before us.

      That is one ugly schnoz.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Holy Hell...
      • 5 Years Ago
      That is horrific. For Ford's sake, I hope Mexicans have a different sense of taste (though I suspect they don't).
        • 5 Years Ago
        We do have better sense of taste. That's why we do have Alfa Romeos and Fiats 500 on the streets and all those Audis that you don't get. If they try to sell us this pos, well, it won't sell.
