    Anyone see any of these at a dealer yet?

    The 07 Mark LT's are on the lots in California now.
  • Saw an 07 in White Sand in Michigan with manufacturer's plates and the new look is defintitely a step in the right direction. From what I'd seen in pictures I thought that they ruined the truck but it looks much better. All of the chrome looks justified in the white color. Definitely worth considering...
  • The 2007 Mark LT are in the lots of some places in Texas.

    It appears that the 07’s that are out there are it until February 07. I can’t find an 07 Mark LT the way I want it and I’m told I won’t. Ordering one takes 4 months. This sucks. Looks like I’ll have to look at a Tundra.

    I can understand why people would be interested in a luxury truck. Ford makes a decent truck, no question about it but I do not understand why people would want a Lincoln Mark LT, when it is essentially a clone of the F-150. Same engine, transmission, same body styling, same ride quality,

    FROM THE CAR SPACE REVIEW SECTION THAT MAKES MY POINT
    “as-tested price for this Mark LT 4x4 was $47,600. "

    "The Escalades look like Cadillac actually had a hand in styling them whereas the Lincoln Mark LT looks like Ford just gave it to Lincoln as is." Keep in mind, however, the base price of an Escalade EXT is about $10,000 more than the Mark LT 4x4 we tested. And a two-wheel-drive Mark LT starts under $40,000. – This maybe true but you get much more for your money with the Cadillac Escalade EXT. At that price it's important to note that the 2006 Lincoln Mark LT is available only as a SuperCrew four-door with a 5.5-foot bed, a 5.4-liter V8 and a four-speed automatic transmission. – The Cadillac is AWD nearly is nearly as capable for 99.9% of the pick up driving public. A 4x4, like our test truck, starts at $42,700. By comparison, a loaded 2005 Ford F-150 King Ranch 4x4 has an MSRP of about $44,000. Similarly equipped, the Lincoln is roughly $1,300 more. – Since its so much like the Ford King Ranch 4x4 - what is the motivation for buying the Mark LT? Essentially, that extra money for the Lincoln LT only gets you cosmetic upgrades like a Lincoln grille, special badging and chrome trim. In fact, Lincoln acknowledges that the Mark LT's main goal is to offer a truck that is a visual alternative to the F-150, and despite its big buck Super Bowl ad, it's only looking to sell 1,000 Mark LTs per month. As far as features are concerned, Our Mark LT was loaded with every available option, including a rear-seat DVD player and rear parking sensors, it did not include features we think are essential in a luxury truck. Our Mark LT did not have power seatbacks, power lumbar, a navigation system, power-folding mirrors, multizone climate control, a bedliner, Bluetooth connectivity, satellite radio or any kind of OnStar-like feature.

    On the road, the Lincoln pickup feels exactly like an F-150, which is a good thing, (Not when you are trying to show yourself as an alternative to all other vehicles offerings on the market) same refined ride and the same smooth 5.4-liter, 300-hp V8. In our track testing we recorded a slightly slower 0-to-60 time of 10.3 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 17.3 at 80.4 mph. The Cadillac has a 6.0 litre 345 hp. V8 that is only available the Cadillac Escalade ESV and now for 2007 the Chevy Silverado as an option.


    Best Feature: Bass response/sound quality. – (I wonder if its in the league of the Cadillac’s Bose system?)


    Worst Feature: No satellite radio. – (XM is just one of the many things available as well as a Nav. system on the Escalade.)

    Yes, its 10,000 less than the Escalade ESV but it should be when it doesn't offer a full sized bed and many of the other feature that make a luxury vehicle a true luxury vehicle</

  • This topic has averaged about 3 posts per month.

    Since all Mark LT's are nearly new and under warranty, I'm eagerly waiting to see how many posts the "Mark LT Transmission Problems" and other problem related micro-topics receive.

    We could have a general P&S discussion but this way it makes it easier to categorize and bucket issues if and when they do arise. It's also better than the alternative of having hundreds of little discussions like "how do I adjust the headlights".

    We'll see how it works... it's not etched in stone.

  • Our Mark LT did not have power seatbacks, power lumbar, a navigation system, power-folding mirrors, multizone climate control, a bedliner, Bluetooth connectivity, satellite radio or any kind of OnStar-like feature.

    All of the above features are available on the 07 LT except bluetooth and multizone climate, pwr seat back and onstar. Onstar type feature is not available on any ford/linc/merc. With the, mostly cosmetic, changes for 07 this truck actually deserves the title of selling in higher numbers than the Escalade EXT.

    Does anyone know the sales volume for the 07 MArk LT for October 06?
  • gregg_vwgregg_vw Posts: 2,419
    Well, I guess half the list is better than none. Bluetooth is essential though. (And the lack of power seat backs is just cheap).
  • In September Mark LT sales were 1203-- That's getting close to Navigator's 1428 and it's 39% higher than the previous September.

    More Mark LT's were sold than all models of Jaguar combined(1158)
  • lyletlylet Posts: 27
    Do you think these were 07 sales or lots of 06's at zero percent? I ended up ordering and 07 because of low inventory and not finding a truck the way I wanted it. Sure wish it would have bluetooth. Anyone with a solution to the bluetooth issue?
  • questions on the 2007 mark lt. the change for 07 are some mark lt will have power deploying boards, navigation system, the monotone trim which looks so beautiful. IMO it looks a lot better than previous trims are far better than the ext. not a major change on body style did notice that the grill and headlights look a slight sleeker. you will locate 2007 models in odessa, texas they have the elite monotone trim they look really nice. i will see if i can go by the dealership and take photos and some how post them
  • lyletlylet Posts: 27
    The 2007 Mark LT doesn't have power deploying running boards from the factory but some dealers have them as ad ons. Also, bluetooth is a accessory ad on installed by the dealers. ITs called mobile ease from Ford. If you go to the www.lincolnaccessories.com, you can find bluetooth there. Would be interesting to hear about how the mobile ease works and how people like it.

    Anyone know the sales of the MArk LT for December? They must not be very good
  • ANT14ANT14 Posts: 2,687
    Last year sales were 10,274, this years 12,753 which is an inrease of 24.1%.

    Compare that to it's rival the Cadillac EXT at 7,019 for this year, a -9.6% decrease over last years 7,766.
  • 81% better. Wow.
    I'm surprised how poorly the Cadillac is doing, but dang, it's expensive!
