26: Lincoln Mark LT
Finally, in the luxury truck saga at Ford, there was the Mark LT, a truck released in 2006 three years after the failed experiment of the Blackwood. The truck was based on the F-150 similar to how the Blackwood was, but the company did a few things differently. For starters, the Mark LT actually had a functional truck bed, whereas the Blackwood’s was made of satin. Another thing that the Mark LT did right was to offer different exterior colors. But the truck was still limited in the configurations that you could choose, notably the fact that it was only available in a four-door. The truck was also released at the wrong time, right in the midst of a failing economy.
The truck was lethargic in terms of performance and didn’t really offer all that much over the F-150. Its exterior styling was also eerily similar to the F-150, which didn’t help to differentiate the truck all that much. Overall, the Mark LT is a truck that will go down as a small footprint in the Lincoln portfolio. The Mark did manage to birth the F-150 Platinum which is one of the most popular pickup trucks on the road nowadays.
