2010 Lincoln Mark LT - Click above for a high-res image gallery
The Lincoln Mark LT was an unmitigated failure in the US market, but in Mexico it's been the marque's top-seller, with 6,000 units leaving dealers since 2005. So while the gussied-up F-150 was unceremoniously euthanized in the US, Ford's luxury brand had to whip up something with a star badge, a split grille and a work-over with el feo palo for our southern compadres.
The 2010 Lincoln Mark LT looks a lot like the Ford F-150 Platinum fitted with a new grille (Ford didn't even change the headlights) and some Lincoln badging, because essentially, that's what it is. The new LT shares all the mechanicals with Ford's top-selling pickup, including its 310 hp 5.4-liter V8 powerplant, a choice of 5.5- or 6.5-foot beds and a tow rating of 10,000 lbs.
We're guessing there won't be many American pickup truck buyers disappointed that the 2010 Lincoln Mark LT won't be available in the US market. Heck, most truck buyers didn't even know the original Mark LT even existed to begin with. Click on the gallery below to check out the 2010 Mark LT in all its frankentruck glory.
