At 25K, fuel injector failed destroying catalytic converter. Truck has been in shop 4 weeks. Converter on order for over 3 weeks & just slipped delivery another 1 1/2 weeks. Ford replacement Catalytic Converters are not readily available. If I used a Ford truck for a living I would be in serious trouble. Dealership is not the problem as Ford cannot provide part required for repairs. Dealer has been in contact with Ford w/no results. Extended warranty would not have helped. Will this be the last injector failure???

This is my husband's 4th truck since I've known him and it beats the snot out of all the others he's had (F-350 Lariat, Dodge Ram SLT x2). The exterior is so tuff, everyone looks.The interior is incredibly comfortable, nicer than my Acura RL. We tow a boat on a tandem trailer (about 7500) pounds and you can't even tell it's there. I've driven it across state, was worried because it seems so big, and it was perfect. Comfy, roomy, tremendous stereo, all the features are on the wheel or within easy reach. The chrome runnings boards are so cool. We have never had a single problem with this truck. We would definitely buy this vehicle again.

This is by far the best truck I have ever seen (and I live in San Antonio, TX). Gets comments everywhere I go. Power and fuel mileage are extremely good for a truck this large. Plenty of room inside and out for how I would use a truck. Stereo even impresses the kids -- the subwoofer will make the cars around you shake. The real wood trim is so smooth, you have to look twice to realize what they are. The chrome running boards look great with the rest of the truck, and are very functional with the rubber inserts.

The best vehicle I have ever owned! It is a real "head turner". Pretty truck inside and out. Could easily be used to attend a black tie affair. The only drawback is fuel economy so I still spend a lot of time in my work truck.

Dealer was the best i've ever dealt with. The truck is beautiful (burgundy color) and gets lots of compliments. Air wouldn't blow cold at idle unless it was a overcast day and it had no power at all. Probally the weakest vehicle i've ever owned. The local dealer said they just reset the computer code and all was well. Not so , the air blows cold MOST of the time but it still has NO power and the gas mileage is terrible. not really a lincoln, just a F-150 with some chrome. Lincoln can sell it off the name and the looks but they really need to make it a Lincoln for those that know the difference.

This is one of the most comfortable and smooth riding vehicles I have found. I added a lot of after market items like Vogue tires, rims, tonneau cover, rain guards,etc. The only ghing I havent seen is more of these on the road..whats up with that? in a year driving from here and visiting Hawai I have noticed about six. I think if you added the things I did at the showroom more would be on the road. The only problem I have found is the after market splash guards, Huffy custom made would be better. I would love to show my truck in your dealership and people would buy more. As it is on the floor it just doesnt have the bling. To bad cause it is a great truck.hope I didnt buy a Blackwood.chow
The Mark LT is a new luxury truck from Lincoln. It's based on the F-150 but adds small, mostly cosmetic, upgrades like a chrome Lincoln grille, rear taillight reflectors and Lincoln badging.
The Lincoln Mark LT is actually Lincoln's second attempt at building a luxury pickup. Despite a few unique and interesting features, the 2002 Lincoln Blackwood was panned for being a strange combination of overpriced and impractical. Moreover, many of us felt the Blackwood's cabin did not live up to its luxurious nameplate. For the 2006 model year, Lincoln is trying again with the more practical and stylish Mark LT. The Mark LT is essentially an F-150 but with some unique exterior styling cues. The Mark LT's interior is clean and contemporary-looking thanks mostly the redesigned F-150 that gives it such a great starting point. Power comes from the same 300-hp, 5.4-liter V8 that's available in the F-150, and that means the Lincoln truck is just as capable in terms of hauling and towing.
The Lincoln Mark LT offers a smooth ride and can be ordered with such options as a rear-seat DVD-based entertainment system, a premium audio system, power-adjustable pedals, rear parking sensors and a power moonroof. Unfortunately, features such as power-folding side mirrors, satellite radio, a navigation system and an emergency communications system are not available. We feel that as a competitor to luxury trucks like Cadillac's Escalade EXT, the Lincoln truck falls short in terms of features, comfort and options. However, Lincoln's new luxury model does deliver in one crucial area: price. The base 2006 Lincoln Mark LT is significantly less expensive than the cheapest Escalade. Those shoppers wanting something a bit different from a commonplace F-150 should come away from the Lincoln dealership satisfied.

Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options
The Lincoln Mark LT is available only as a crew-cab pickup with a 5.5-foot bed. Based on the F-150, it differs mainly in its cosmetic upgrades. There is only one trim level available. Standard features include leather seating, wood trim, heated front seats, keyless entry and a premium audio system with an in-dash, MP3-compatible CD changer. Options include a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, a power-operated rear window, power-adjustable pedals, rear parking sensors, chromed 18-inch wheels, chromed bed-rail caps and running boards. The Mark LT also benefits from Lincoln's longer basic warranty, 4 years and 50,000 miles, compared to the F-150's basic 3-year/36,000-mile program.
Powertrains and Performance
All Mark LTs come with a 5.4-liter, 300-hp V8. That engine has 24 valves and features variable valve timing. It makes 365 lb-ft of torque at 3,750 rpm. Two- and four-wheel-drive variants are available, and all Lincoln Mark LT pickups have a four speed automatic transmission. The Mark LT gets from zero to 60 mph in 10.3 seconds and through the quarter-mile in 17.3 seconds. Properly equipped, a two-wheel-drive Mark LT can tow 8,900 pounds.
Standard safety equipment includes four-wheel ventilated disc brakes with ABS and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution. There are also turn indicators housed in the exterior mirrors and three-point seatbelts for all seating positions. Unfortunately, you can't get side airbags or stability control. Crash tests have not been performed on the Lincoln Mark LT, but its F-150 sibling earned perfect marks in government tests and "Best Pick" status from the IIHS.
Interior Design and Special Features
The Mark LT's roomy interior seats five. Although luxurious, it is not substantially different than an F-150 King Ranch. The seats are comfortable and come with contrasting colored piping similar to the style of the Range Rover. The gauges are chrome-trimmed and incorporate the Lincoln logo. To lend an upscale look to the cabin, Lincoln designers dressed up the dash with faux wood trim and leather. The leather trim on the dash, steering wheel and shifter is especially nice as the exposed stitching adds an extra element of luxury.
On the road, Lincoln's pickup feels almost exactly like an F-150, which is a good thing. The 5.4-liter V8 lacks the low-end grunt of competitors' V8s but almost makes up for that deficiency with its smooth, quiet power delivery. Suspension tuning is softer than the F-150's, resulting in a smooth and comfortable highway ride. Handling is not as nimble as the Ford's, however. Brake pedal feel is only so-so, but the 2006 Lincoln Mark LT stops short for a 5,600-pound vehicle.
