The 2006 Lincoln Mark LT luxury pickup is modern, clean, and simple, but at the same time it has a unique look and style. In addition, it boasts an upscale appearance with a roomy interior and a nice, comfortable ride with a smooth, strong, and powerful delivery. The design starts with an F-150 body, which has been dressed up with a unique and upscale appearance. This pickup shows a vast improvement over Lincoln’s first attempt at a luxury pickup, the Lincoln Blackwood in 2002.
The 2006 Lincoln Mark LT comes only as a crew cab and has a 5.5-foot bed. The single trim comes standard with some nice features and has some even nicer features available as options. All LTs contain a 5.4-liter, 300-horsepower V-8 that produces 365 lb-ft of torque at 3750 rpm, with a four-speed automatic transmission. The 2006 LT has a towing capacity of 8900 pounds. It has either two- or four-wheel drive.

The 2006 Lincoln Mark LT is an all-new luxury pickup truck. The LT marks Lincoln’s second try at building a luxury truck. The first, the Lincoln Blackwood, proved unsuccessful, as consumers thought it impractical and overpriced. The Mark LT uses the F-150 as a base and adds mostly cosmetic upgrades, such as the Lincoln chrome grille, taillight reflectors, and the Lincoln badge.
The 2006 Lincoln LT comes as a crew cab with a 5.5-foot bed. Its style starts with the F-150 exterior and includes some unique additions that give it a contemporary look. For instance, the turn indicators sit on the exterior mirrors. The Mark LT comes in seven exterior colors and two interior colors. In addition, it features 18-inch alloy wheels, all-season tires, privacy glass, a rear defogger, chrome finish bumpers, trailer wiring, and cargo tie-downs. The body measures 78.9 inches wide, 73.5 inches high, and 223.8 inches long, with a maximum towing capacity of 8900 pounds and a maximum payload of 1620 pounds.
The interior offers plenty of room and comfortably seats five passengers. The seats are leather with heated front seats. Standard interior features on the 2006 Lincoln Mark LT also include wood trim on the dash, steering wheel, and shift knob; keyless entry; and a premium audio system with an MP3-compatible CD changer. To add to the luxurious appearance, the dash, steering wheel, and shifter have leather and faux wood trim. Exposed stitching adds to the luxury factor. Available options include a power-operated rear window, a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, power-adjustable pedals, chrome 18-inch wheels, rear parking sensors, and chrome running boards and bed-rail caps.
Convenience features include a front console with storage, front and rear cup holders and door pockets, front seat storage, 12-volt front and rear power outlets, memorized seat settings for two different passengers, and audio and cruise controls on the steering wheel.
Comfort features include climate control, a cargo area light, front and rear reading lights, and dual illuminating vanity mirrors.
Entertainment features include seven speakers, an in-dash, AM/FM, six-CD changer and MP3 playback stereo, speed-sensitive volume control, and data radio system.
Performance & Handling
The 2006 Lincoln LT has a quiet, smooth, comfortable, and powerful delivery. It goes from zero to 60 mph in 10.3 seconds and completes the quarter-mile track in 17.3 seconds.
Standard safety equipment on the Lincoln LT includes four-wheel ventilated disc brakes with an anti-lock brake system and electronic brake force distribution. Turn indicators are mounted on the exterior mirrors for extra visibility, and all seating positions feature three-point restraints. Surprisingly, available options do not include side airbags or stability control. Crash tests on the F-150, the LT’s base, receive perfect marks in government tests and “Best Pick” praise from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
