The powerplant is as big as it needs to be to move something the scale of the Lincoln Mark LT - 5.4 litre V-8 SOHC with 24 valves producing a maximum 300 horsepower and 365 lb ft of torque. The power to move even the massive bulk of the 2006 Lincoln Mark LT at a very reasonable pace is there in abundance. Either 4x2 or 4x4 configurations are available.
Lincoln built the Mark LT for people who have achieved their goals and want a vehicle that is adequately distinctive for everyone to realise. If the exterior does not convince them the interior certainly will. Anti-scratch leather abounds on the headliner, steering wheel, seats, centre console and door panels, while the floor is covered in sheepskin. Gauges are finished in black with white numerals held within an aluminium casing which lends a touch of sophistication to the overall appearance.
When you slide in behind the wheel of the Lincoln Mark LT you need to remind yourself that it's not a Sports Utility Vehicle, not with a 5.5 foot box at the back. It's easy enough to forget because the Lincoln Mark LT behaves more like an SUV than it does a pick-up. The robust steering is positive and provides a small turning-circle of just 46 feet. When it comes to stopping power Lincoln ensured that the Mark LT is equipped with ample braking power, four wheel disc brakes are standard, as is the four wheel Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD).
The Lincoln Mark LT will not fall apart when you take it off-road, it is very well constructed and will move off-road without trouble no matter how rough the terrain gets. The steering is accurate and nothing squeaks or rattles so that you quickly appreciate the very good build quality. On road the Lincoln Mark LT purrs along much as you would expect with that big V-8 seemingly enjoying the opportunity to explore its higher limits. A noticeable aspect for the driver is how quickly slower moving vehicles move right out of the way when you're travelling in the outside lane.
The Lincoln Mark LT in the United Kingdom would likely find a market because more people are turning towards large pick-ups as a suitable choice for families, whether or not they live in a rural area. For those with serious money the Lincoln Mark LT requires serious consideration. It is undoubtedly distinctive, has plenty of power and will rock the neighbours with its imposing style. It would be remiss to ignore the fuel consumption which is heavy, but if you can afford a Lincoln Mark LT are you really concerned how much it costs to run? Unlikely.
