The truck market is getting hotter than ever, so it’s no wonder many carmakers are about to expand their offer with new models. However, this segment somehow remained reserved for mainstream brands only. There were some tries in the past, particularly by Lincoln and Cadillac to changes thing state, but nothing important happened. These models were rather unsuccessful. However, it looks like luxury carmakers are about to take another try. The first one to take a shot will be Ford’s luxury brand, which is about to introduce 2020 Lincoln Mark LT, allegedly. This is a pretty familiar nameplate, as there were two generations of it already in production. Will things turn right this time, time will tell.
2020 Lincoln Mark LT Design
At this moment, the company is pretty quiet on this matter and that’s no wonder, considering that Lincoln is in a big process of redesigning complete SUV lineup. However, unofficial reports claim that the new truck is under development. This time, it looks like it will be far more distinctive. The previous versions were largely a rebadged F-150 truck, spiced up with a bit of luxury. This time, the 2020 Lincoln Mark LT is about to come with its own design.
Of course, the platform and most parts will be shared, but the new truck is about to come with its own aesthetics. As you may presume, they will be based on the brand’s latest styling philosophy, which has been introduced with the current-generation Navigator a couple of years ago. We presume that two models will share the front end almost entirely, while the rest of the vehicle is about to come in a typical truck manner. Of course, it will come with a pretty spacious cabin, so it seems certain that the 2020 Lincoln Mark LT will ride on the stretched version of a familiar platform.
A stretched platform will definitely bring a lot of benefits, including a very spacious interior. In terms of the overall layout, it will be some kind of crew-cab design or even bigger for the standards of this cabin type. In any case, we are pretty sure that the new cabin will look a lot like the Navigator’s one. This particularly refers to the dashboard and overall styling. In practice, this means a lot of style and luxury. Count on plush materials all around the cabin, and the dashboard that nicely combines classic styling elements with modern technologies. Speaking of technologies, a long list of standard features, including the latest infotainment tech goodies is a certain thing.
2020 Lincoln Mark LT Engine
This aspect of the 2020 Lincoln Mark LT shouldn’t bring any surprise. We are about to see a familiar 3.5-liter V6 engine, the same one from the Navigator and Raptor, which is tuned to around 450 horsepower. It comes in pair with a 10-speed automatic transmission and such combination will definitely ensure excellent performances and ride quality. Speaking of the ride quality, there is a big chance to see an independent rear suspension in the offer, just like it is the case with the Navigator. This may potentially reduce max towing capacity, but have no doubt max figures will go pretty high, probably around 10.000 pounds. When it comes to fuel economy, count on pretty decent ratings – around 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway.
2020 Lincoln Mark LT Release Date and Price
The fact is that we are still waiting to hear something from the officials about the 2020 Lincoln Mark LT. At this point, we can only rely on rumors that suggest the new model could arrive already in the next year. When it comes to the price, some sources suggest that base models could go around 65.000 dollars.
