These days, some may find it hard to believe that Lincoln actually built and sold pickups years ago, but it did so not only with one Ford F-150 based model, but two – the Blackwood and the Mark LT. Neither of those vehicles was what one might call a sales success, though each was a bit ahead of its time, as luxury pickups have since become a booming business. However, Lincoln has no plan to make and sell another pickup – though it hasn’t been completely ruled out – which means that those wanting such a machine must purchase one second-hand. For those in the market, this 2006 Lincoln Mark LT currently up for grabs at Cars & Bids is certainly a nice example.
This 2006 Lincoln Mark LT has a mere 55,600 miles on the clock, and as such, is still in pretty excellent condition. The Arizona Beige Metallic paint shows the typical scratches, as one might imagine, while there’s some peeling chrome on the wheels and a missing cap on the driver-side bed rail. Otherwise, this luxurious pickup looks nearly as good as new.
Inside the cabin, occupants are greeted by a plush leather interior and a host of amenities including power adjustable pedals, heated and power adjustable front seats, wood trim, automatic climate control, and a rear entertainment system. The seller has added a few modifications to the mix as well, including a BedRug bed liner, a BAKFlip tonneau cover, a backup camera, and a Hieha head unit. Under the hood, this Mark LT is powered by the naturally-aspirated Ford 5.4L V8 Triton engine, which sends 300 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels via a four-speed automatic transmission.
Unfortunately, the Mark LT wasn’t around for long, proving to be nearly as big of a flop as its predecessor, but that also makes the gussied-up F-150 a rare and interesting find today. Whether or not that means this one will sell for any significant amount of money remains to be seen, however.

This was a badge-engineered abomination and was part of demise of the Lincoln brand as a leading luxury car. I knew a guy who had an F 150 and just swapped out the Ford grille with the MKT grille and saved himself $20k in the process.
