  • but for accurate in 2009 it will come true. The lincoln Mark LT will face a major redisign as so for its sibling the Ford F-150. the Mark LT will now be catching up the Cadillac Escalade EXT. hope that Ford does this very well.

    I couldn't wait anymore. I just got a 07 Mark LT 4x4 with everything. I will write a review after driving for a month but so far, it's really nice.
  • What do you mean by everthing? Do you mean that you gat all the packages?
  • lyletlylet Posts: 27
    Yes, It has everything except the Chrome rails on the bed because I'm putting a Snug Lid on it.
  • It's hard to tell when looking at the this youtube clip because you can only see part of the truck. I think that this is a Lincoln LT. Do any other trucks have similar side view mirrors?? :confuse:

  • The Giveaway to me that this is not a Lincoln LT is there is no electronic keypad under the door handles to unlock the doors.Also,the back door glass has a partition, there is no partition on an LT, it's a one piece door glass.Weird little dude though!

    My 07 Mark LT is White Chocolate but not monotone. I went with the chrome. Light parchment interior. Navigation, 4x4, limited slip. No bed rails because I put a snug lid on it painted to match. My thoughts on the truck are that’s it’s a really nice truck that is quieter than my 04 Navigator. The things I like are the comfort of the seats, the roominess, and the excellent visibility, plenty of power. My mileage has been 19-20 on the highway and 12 around town. Things I do not like are the emergency brake is a manual release, I’m spoiled by my Navigator and no backup camera, the sensors are OK but it would be nice to have the camera. Also, no HID lights. The Navigator has theses.
    Overall build quality is good but not great. I really enjoy this truck a lot and it is nicer than the F-150 even though it is an F-150. The Navigator rides better but the Mark LT is quieter and also rides really great for a truck.
  • Just picked up an 06 left over. MSRP of $47,800 for 34,990. got the 20" wheels; 3.73 LS Axle; Chrome Box Rail Bars and Running Boards; Tow Package; All terrain Tires; Sun Roof; Power rear window; Serius Radio; Skid Pates. I originaly was NOT in the Market for the Mark LT, but rather a FX4 F150 or King Ranch. Although for the same price I got this beautiful package. I feel that you can more or less think of it as a nice Luxury edition F150 rather than its own independant model like the Escalade EXT. Everyone should really be on the look out for a great deal like this, especially if they are in the market for an F150. As for now, I'm lovin' it!
  • Was going to do my usual "Barely-used" purchase thing, but found the prices for low-mileage '06's and '07's to be out of line. Grabbed a new '07 last week: Black Mono-Elite (Nav, moonroof, everything), 3.73 diff, big wheels (sharp), box-rails, Sirius, every option but rear-DVD. MSRP was $45,590, dealer went to $35,500 (same as many pre-owned) with no sweat (and overvalued my trade.) At $35.5, this is by far the best transport value around. Drove it 300 miles last week....just fabulous (reference: other car is a Lexus LX470.) Great ride, stereo booms, attention grabber. Gorgeous Mono-paint package is the call, with just the right amount of bling. I'm a happy trucker.

    Hey, you did REALLY well.

    However, if they are pushing these kind of deals for a new one, I suspect the used prices are pie in the sky. Once again, we have a luxury ride whose resale value plummets like a skydiver in freefall.

    You are in good company. My favorite sedan, the Audi A8, does the same thing.

    DALLAS DON

    I am in the market for a loaded out 4x2 LT with about the same MSRP as you are talking about. I am assuming you got yours in Dallas. Can you tell me which dealership you got yours at? I have only seen black and white up close and in person because that is all they have ever had here in Texarkana. I like black but will never buy b lack again and I do not want white. What is the best other color? Is the red a bright red?

    Thanks

    Who is the "message broad?" And when did she die?
  • I thought she did commercials for Mercury.
  • lyletlylet Posts: 27
    Anyone know of any changes for 08?
  • they are adding a backup camera
  • gregg_vwgregg_vw Posts: 2,415
    2008 will be the last year for this badge-engineered fancy Ford. This is the second time Lincoln could not get a pickup offering right--at least to the extent that it approached sales targets.

    The Blackwood could have succeeded if it had had a 4WD option, and the option of an open bed. The LT, however, is just an F150 with a different grill. The 09 F150 is just around the corner. Designing even a badge engineered Lincoln model is likely not worth the investment.

    No tears should be shed. If Lincoln wants a truck, design it from next generation's Navigator. Make it innovative, or forget about it.
  • Has this been confirmed, that 2008 is the last year for Mark LT???
  • lyletlylet Posts: 27
    I've heard that there will be a 09 Mark LT

    Hi, I have a 2007 LT that I bought new. It currently has about 13000 miles on it and the leather on the drivers seat is cracking severely. Is this common?
  • lyletlylet Posts: 27
    My seats still look almost new with some lines appearing after one and a half years and 16k miles on my 07. You need to keep them clean and condition them. Also, if they are cracked bad, the dealer should replace them. They will argue that its normal wear and tear but the fact is it shouldn't do that that quickly. Be persistent!
  • clarksalmoclarksalmo Posts: 19
    I clean and condition them at least every 2 weeks, if not every week. I like a clean, well-maintained vehicle. I have more than a few lines, some of them are deep cracks that didn't appear on my Aviator, even at 50,00 miles. I'll try my dealer, they have always been very good to me.
  • kgabekgabe Posts: 25
    Loaded LT (sticker around $47K) with 13K miles. Dealer asking $31K. Any thoughts? I wonder what price this unit went through the auction at? If it wasn't a trade-in that is.

    Ask the pros in the Real World Trade-In Values discussion what a truck of that spec is auctioning at right now.

    Dude ! WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT, AND WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INFORMATION? I own a 2006 LT ! It is the best investment I made, and the best vehicle I owned ever. First, the Ford F150 is a good truck, but the LT has worlds of a better ride, it is a luxury truck, you see and feel the difference. Do you own an LT or you cannot afford one. The LT has the looks, ride, and performance package that beats all trucks. Sir, you do not know what your are talking about. Ford is a good product, but Lincoln is the best product. Just drive a Lincoln, and if you own a Lincoln, you have issues.
  • gregg_vwgregg_vw Posts: 2,415
    I see...thanks for the objective report.

    Now, if more people perceived things as you do, Lincoln would not be killing the LT. Or struggling as mightily as it is. Have a nice day.
  • asaroasaro Posts: 14
    First I am trying to figure out where you are getting your information because it is beginning to flip me out! Lincoln is not killing the LT forever, it is sitting out one year and will be redesigned. Just like many other companies have done to their model vehicles. Second Lincoln is not struggling, it is in an expansion mode. Yes, all the car industry is suffering because of the Democratic congress, but that will pass. You need to get the correct information and test drive an LT, and then if possible purchase this wonderful vehicle. You cannot compare the F150 to the LT, the LT has all upgraded and luxury parts. The suspension is of high quality, not the same as the F150. Work some overtime and get a loan, then buy the LT! Take Care
  • gregg_vwgregg_vw Posts: 2,415
    I see you have the real inside information. Especially the stuff about politicians causing auto executives to do dumb things, and Lincoln being in an expansive mode, even though their sales and market share are down. Have a nice day today as well.
  • asaroasaro Posts: 14
    Ok, you sound like a politian ! You are not making sense. All shares in the American auto industry are down today because of our Democratic Congress refusing to vote for more oil drilling. This in turn hurts the car industry and the American economy. Lincoln is in the expansion mode, have you heard of their new models being marketed ? Do you own an LT ? Have you driven an LT ? Can you afford the LT? If not you cannot make an assessment on the LT. You need to give and opinion on this matter that makes sense.
  • gregg_vwgregg_vw Posts: 2,415
    Not to get into a flame war with you or anything, but you dear man, are making no sense, though you do spout some mindless propaganda. American companies have been losing market share for years because, other than pickups and large SUVs, the Japanese and Koreans have been building better vehicles. Now, GM and Ford are truly scrambling, having lost their esteemed 1 -2 positions to Toyota. Both companies still build great trucks, but now there are world-class cars as well, whether you are talking the Cadillac CTS, the Malibu or the coming Ford Fiesta.

    I already told you that I have driven the LT (and high end F150s) and though I can afford any Lincoln built, I have no interest in owning an F150 with a bit of lipstick and a Lincoln name for that much extra money. If you were truly familiar with how good the F150 is in many ways, you would realize that the LT uses the same body, same interior, exact same engine and transmission, exact same dimensions, and the same quiet steel that you like so well in the LT. Compare apples to apples. F150 comes in lower end and work truck models. Compare the LT to the loaded F150 with the same 5.4 Ford V8 and comparable equipment.

    I wager I know more about Lincoln than you, having had a soft spot for the brand since I was a kid...and that was a long, long time ago. The MKZ has not met sales expectations. The MKS is not selling nearly as well as the LS did when it was introduced. The LT is cancelled after this year, and contrary to your claim of a one year hiatus, no insider that I know has stated there will be a replacement. The LT, as expensive as it was, did not offer things that economy cars are offering now, like side airbags and stability control. Sales of the LT have been very disappointing for Lincoln.

    The MKT will be here next year, but it is a three row CUV built off the Flex chassis. I am rooting for it, but I had hoped the Flex would do better than it is doing. I like that the MKT shares nothing obvious with the Flex, and maybe the new Lincoln styling will work better for it than the boxy Land Rover look of the Flex has worked for it. The MKR (badly needed) is years off yet (if they made the MKR, I would buy it). Far off as well is a full but badly needed redesign of he Navigator. This last iteration has stumbled badly in the marketplace, especially compared to the Escalade. The Town Car is now fleet only, and hasn't been updated in so long that it is an embarrassment, except for those livery jobs it does so well.

    You keep saying Lincoln is in an expansion mode. Well, of course it is, but sales still don't reflect that very much. Before Mulally, it looked like Bill Ford was trying to kill it. Lincoln almost overtook Cadillac in the late 90s, one year even selling more vehicles than Cadillac did. Then old Bill decided Lincoln didn't even have the image to be in the now defunct Premier Auto Group (PAG). The wonderful LS was given a death sentence and the Lincoln Continental concept was killed (along with the Marks 9 and 10 concepts, and the innovative NaviCross that I believe could have really made a splash in the market).

    Ford doesn't have the bucks right now to feed Lincoln like it really needs. Cadillac has three times as many new models coming or planned. I hope Lincoln makes it, and there is certainly nothing wrong with Lincoln having defenders like yourself. But informed admirers would be even better. Lincoln needs world class products and the resulting world class admirers that stellar product brings with it. The meltdown of the pigs in the housing and finance arenas will not help Lincoln rebuild.

    Enjoy your LT and enjoy its scarcity as well. But please don't get all arrogant because most other people have chosen to buy something else. The Blackwood, as badly as that sold (largely due to no 4WD offering and the covered trunk with no option of a regular bed), at least had its own Lincoln styling, borrowed from the Navigator. Like it or not, the LT is an F150, with some trim variations, built on the same assembly line as the F150. Most people on doing the comparison found there was no reason the pay the extra bucks for such obvious badge engineering.

    Have a nice day tomorrow.
