All kinds of things are happening in today’s automotive industry, so even rumors about the 2021 Lincoln Mark LT comeback doesn’t sound impossible. Simply, pickup trucks are getting more popular than ever and a big share goes to more luxurious versions of models like F-150, Ram 1500 etc. This means we might see some premium badges in the segment once again.
At this point, this is just a rumor. However, some of our reliable sources strongly believe that the 2021 Lincoln Mark LT is actually about to happen. Moreover, they suggest some pretty interesting changes, something that will make the new version of the LT much better compared to previous versions. Still, keep the following paragraphs with a big reserve.
2021 Lincoln Mark LT Design
The last time we saw Mark LT was six years ago and the latest rumors suggest that the new 2021 Lincoln Mark LT pickup truck will be characterized by a different approach. If you look at some previous versions, it’s easy to see that they are nothing more than rebranded versions of the F-150. However, things would be different this time, as the new version would come with a completely different design, which would be based on the Navigator in every aspect. Things include mechanics as well, as the two models should be pretty much identical in this aspect.
When it comes to the styling, we presume that the new model would look largely the same as the flagship SUV. This particularly refers to the front end of the vehicle, which should look pretty much identical. On the other side, the rest of the body would come in a typical truck layout. The wheelbase might be slightly stretched compared to Navigator, though probably not significantly. Of course, the rear end would include a decent cargo bed, new taillights design and other typical variations.
When it comes to interior design, the main difference compared to the SUV iteration will be in the number of seats. Obviously, this version would come with two rows of seats, as a crew cab layout is the only version we expect to see. Instead of the third row, we would see a decent cargo bed, with standard or optional hard cover.
When it comes to the dashboard design, we don’t expect that the 2021 Lincoln Mark LT truck will be any different than Navigator. That’s a great thing, considering that the popular luxury SUV features exceptional interior quality, characterized by hi-end materials, loads of standard features, impressive sound insulation and excellent ride quality.
2021 Lincoln Mark LT Engines
We don’t expect surprises under the hood either. So, the 2021 Lincoln Mark LT would come with a familiar 3.5-liter V6 twin-turbo engine, which puts out around 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. That amount of power promises excellent performances, strong acceleration and a smooth ride. Of course, the engine would come in pair with a 10-speed automatic transmission, which sends power to either rear or all wheels.
At some point, we might see certain forms of electrification as well. As you probably know, the next-generation F-150 is about to come with a variety of powertrain options, including hybrid, plug-in hybrid and all-electric version. So, Mark LT might borrow some of these.
2021 Lincoln Mark LT Release Date and Price
Despite that rumors suggest this truck could arrive already this or next year, the fact is that the company is still quiet about this comeback. Therefore, take this article with a big reserve. If it ever arrives, our rough estimation is that the base price would go around 65.000 dollars.
