    I can't find any information on the 2007 MarkLT at the NY show. Any links?

    Any news on new options on the 07 Mark LT like, All wheel drive, foldable mirrors, GPS, 6-speed Trans?

    Nope.

    As a lifelong Ford guy, and a long-time stockholder, I am just appalled. Even Hyundai is running circles around Ford.

    Why does every other company seem to be able to issue frequent re-designs and new models at a rate that makes Ford seem to be working at a snail's pace? Ford has had a good 10 years of incentive to begin issuing more exciting new products. Flexible manufacturing is a great idea. But it hasn't resulted in issue of new products even as fast as most competitors. At least there is some solace in the Ford family seeing so much wealth fade away in the plunging stock price.

    Let the car guys out of their cages and get out of their way! The GT, Mustang and F150 indicate the good things that can be done if allowed.

    Does any one have any thing good to say about the Lincoln Mark LT Super Crew ?
    I believe that it is going to be a very good choice for me.
    Just how many of you, who are so very critical of this truck, actually own one, or have even driven one ?
    I should be taking delivery of my new 2006 Lincoln Mark LT next week.
    I plan on buying GPS Navigation and keeping it in the glove box until I need to use it.
    I was able to negotiate a very good deal.
    I did not buy a Silver one, because that is the color of my 2006 Chrysler 300C SRT8.
    I am going to be happy with my new truck.

  • Ford promised to show the freshened 2007 Mark LT at the NY auto show. I've been "googling" it for a week and I don't see mention of it anywhere.

    Did Ford flake out again?

    Of course it is a good truck. That it is an F150 (a good truck) with more chrome, a slightly customized grill, tailight extensions on the tailgate and the Lincoln name does not make it bad. The LT is a niche vehicle and fine for what it is. The criticism is more directed toward Ford's and Lincoln's half-hearted effort to recover. It's about product, and the whole company needs a lot more new and interesting machines to sell.

    Just to let anyone who cares. I got a mark lt about two months ago. I traded in a lincoln aviator (don't buy one of those it is an overpriced explorer) for a mark lt. I didn't really want a full size truck but lincoln dealer was the only one to give anything for the aviator. I hate to admit to it but I like the mark a little more every time I drive it. sure the gas mileage is terrible but it has a great ride for what it is. Plus the lease rates on it were cheap for a truck that lists for 45,000$. I would give it 2 thumbs up.

    (don't buy one of those it is an overpriced explorer)

    Not to be offensive but isn't that VERY obvious? Even my 16 year old nephew (who is into cars) noticed that
  • gregg_vwgregg_vw Posts: 2,419
    You are not being offensive. However, you should know that there are posters on these Lincoln threads who really do believe that the similarities are NOT obvious (in spite of posts like yours, and the poor sales of FoMoCo clones and half-hearted updates).
  • At least the Aviator had it's own specific 300hp engine, unlike the Mark LT which is mechanically, 100% F-150
  • chuck1959chuck1959 Posts: 654
    That good, as I re thought myself on that comment. When I post here it not meaning to offend anyone but just to express my points of views....no matter how strange or wrong!LOL I respect that with everyone else here and I glad you did with me.
    It amazes me why people can't see the obvious. :confuse:
    I would never buy one of the "clones" however I do have to admit the IMO some clones look better....even though it only amounts to minor trim/grille changes.
  • No one is finding fault in the truck or it's buyers.
    F-150's are excellent. I have a 2002 f-150 and it's never had a single problem of any kind.

    We are bashing Ford for making such an embarrassingly weak effort at badge engineering.

    Myself, I'd likely buy one if it had any distinctive features at all. A grille and taillights don't count.

    So I guess Lincoln did not show the 07 Mark LT at the New York show!!!
  • Why do I keep think of Lucy holding Charlie Brown's football?

    Hopefully they are holding off while they differentiate it more, but more than likely they are just working to design a larger Lincoln emblem for the grille
  • Wow, it's more dead in this forum than it was in the Mark LT booth at the New York Auto show.
  • navigator89navigator89 Posts: 1,080
    That's because there's nothing new to discuss about this vehicle, except maybe how the new Escalade EXT will kill its sales.
  • Strange. Didn't Elena Ford herself say they needed to "Lincoln-ize" it more and didn't Sandie Deas, marketing manager for the Mark LT say Ford will show a refreshed version of the Mark LT at April’s New York auto show.
    "While Deas declines to elaborate on specifics, she says there will be some exterior enhancements and additional features and technologies available for the ’07 model year."

    Ford wouldn't promise something and then just flake out--would they? ;)
  • gregg_vwgregg_vw Posts: 2,419
    Course not. Otherwise they'd be losing billions, losing sales, marketing too few models and not enough cutting edge ones. Why, they'd be in trouble. ;)
  • navigator89navigator89 Posts: 1,080
    1021 units, a whopping 48.6 increase over April 2005. If Lincoln were to drop in more design, power and features the Mark LT would be a smash hit. Whatever happened to them showing a 2007 Mark LT at New York?
