Another year we are listening to rumors about comebacks of a pickup truck that used to be very popular. So, next season we could see Chevy Avalanche or Dodge Dakota. But, the most likely truck to return to US market is 2019 Lincoln Mark LT. Based on the Ford F-150 and with luxury carried over from Navigator SUV, the Mark LT will be the premium truck of higher tier than GMC Sierra 1500 Denali. Whatsoever, the model is not official yet, but we hear rumors from some sources that Blue Oval company is working fast on its return.
This is the only pickup we saw with Lincoln badge on it. After bad sales, the truck ended its career in the US in 2008. Complete discontinuation came in 2014 when the Mark LT appeared for the last time in Mexico. Now, when buyers are looking for premium vehicles, Ford plans to return the familiar nameplate. That is the main reason why we believe in 2019 Lincoln Mark LT.
Ford F-150 Limited to Become the 2019 Lincoln Mark LT
The most luxurious truck in the market is Ford F-150 Limited. It costs $67,000 and brings the most premium features. A unique grille and stuff like twin panel sunroof are making it so expensive. No other model can reach its luxury offer, not Chevy Silverado 1500 High Country or Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn. So, the new 2019 Lincoln Mark LT is about to take its position as the most expensive truck in the market. But, that is not all, since these two could share a lot of things in common. The company could try to rebadge the F-150 Limited. Well, the 2019 Mark LT would have more similarities to Lincoln Navigator though. But, the idea has sense.
Premium Details from Navigator SUV
While the F-150 Limited is the most expensive truck in the market, one of the SUVs with the richest offer is Lincoln Navigator. This is exactly where we are trying to find more details about the upcoming pickup truck. The 2019 Lincoln Mark LT will definitely borrow many things from its SUV siblings. Well, it is much more expensive than the F-150 Limited truck. But, we will find features a premium pickup will need to show off. For example, there are accessories a normal working mule doesn’t need. But, the Lincoln Mark LT 2019 will bring them over to make the statement.
Could the 2019 Lincoln Mark LT introduce the Black Label trim? Probably. The level of luxury raises even higher with these packages. Different on each vehicle, these upgrades are always making the model unique. And expensive.
2019 Lincoln Mark LT Specs
There are no doubts what will be under the bonnet of the 2019 Lincoln Mark LT. Both Navigator SUV and F-150 truck are using a high-performance 3.5-liter V6 engine. So, the same unit will be the base one for the upcoming pickup. It can create 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque. But, fans of the Mark LT got used to a V8 engine. If engineers decide to move from a V6, then the 5.0-liter unit will be a solution. This V8 powertrain produces 395 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque.
Either way, we are sure the 2019 Lincoln Mark LT will have plenty of power. Owners of such vehicle are not going to worry too much about its fuel consumption. Drivers will be happy to get a 10-speed automatic transmission for a smoother ride.
2019 Lincoln Mark LT Diesel
What’s more – the 2019 Lincoln Mark LT could get a diesel engine that is finally coming for Ford F-150 next season. It is a 3.0-liter Powerstroke unit. The drivetrain is capable to produce 250 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque. Also, it can tow up to 11,500 pounds, while its fuel economy reaches 30 mpg.
Size of the 2019 Lincoln Mark LT will be similar to the last time we saw it. If it takes the same platform as F-150, that means its length will be between 230 and 250 inches. But, the pickup should use a Super Cab/Short box configurations, and that one is 240 inches long. Navigator SUV is 222 inches long in its L trim. Width and height will be around 80 inches. These dimensions are similar to both F-150 truck and Navigator SUV, so it should be the same for Mark LT pickup.
2019 Lincoln Mark LT Price, Release Date
When will the 2019 Lincoln Mark LT be available again, nobody knows. The company is still quiet, so all we have left are speculations. According to reports from suspicious sources, the truck will come back in the second half of next year. No further details about sales start or production are available.
We can only guess where the 2019 Lincoln Mark LT can land with a price. Definitely, it can be a successor of Ford F-150 Limited model with MSRP. With slight upgrades from Lincoln Navigator and its Black Label trims, the 2019 Mark LT could cost over $70k.
