In the spring of 2005, a new premium-class Lincoln Mark LT pickup arrived in the United States. The car was created on the platform of the legendary Ford F-150 pickup truck, assembled at the upgraded Ford Motor Company plant in Dearborn (Mich.). The car provides customers with an extraordinary level of luxury, convenience and functionality that has not been previously encountered in this class of cars. When creating the car used only high-quality and cutting-edge materials. For example, the body has a special anti-scratch coating. Design features - a closed hydroformed frame at the base of the body, the original independent suspension on double wishbone, rear - dependent spring.
The Mark LT is only available with a double cab (four full-size doors) and two different drives - either rear or optional shift-on-the-fly plug-in four-wheel drive with 4-mode transfer case. The exterior turned out bright, presentable and you can even say - chic. Mark LT is designed in an elegant conservative style, designed to emphasize the solidity of the owner. Externally, the car features a branded chrome grille. It is worth noting the original and very useful decision of designers: for example, all chrome plates of the lattice can be rotated 90 degrees, forming either a solid plate or - on the contrary - opening ideal access to headwinds when the car moves in the heat.
Separate kind words deserves the interior, during the creation of which, above all, attention was paid to the functionality of the materials and their harmonious combination with each other. Leather interior framed in natural materials of red and black wood. In the design there are elegant sheepskin coating on the floor and very stylish and unobtrusive aluminum and matt chrome inserts and plates in the design of doors, steering column, dashboard and door racks. In addition, the designers used a very transparent mineral to create a dark chrome effect on air valves, door handles and various switches to shade these details against the backdrop of a light and bright interior.
The interior of the Mark LT is American-rich - there are numerous pleasant little things in abundance, ranging from numerous glass holders to devices such as electric drives for vertical adjustment of the pedal assembly. The ergonomics of the driver's workplace are in full compliance with the level of luxury of the interior and exterior. Available is heated not only the seat cushion, but also the backrest. Under the right elbow of the driver is located armrest transformer impressive size.
Volumetric niches in the doors can accommodate not only a folded map map, but also three half-liter bottles. The equipment includes a full power package, separate climate control, a THX hi-fi audio system with a 6-disc CD changer and six speakers built-in around the perimeter of the cabin. The basic package includes 18-inch 7-spoke aluminum wheels and all-season tires, chrome door handles and side mirror housings, as well as door sills. The stability control system, coupled with ABS and disc brakes, ensures maximum safety on difficult sections of the road and almost guarantees timely stopping of a heavy car in any extreme situation.
The forced engine with a displacement of 5.4 liters V8 24V Triton develops a power of 300 hp. and aggregated only with a 4-speed automatic transmission.
