Lincoln could return its legendary pickup truck in the coming months. Yes, we are talking about the 2022 Lincoln Mark LT model. This makes perfect sense as the pickup truck segment is stronger than ever. However, it is a question if there is room for a luxury pickup truck, which Mark LT definitely is. This model is not present for more than a decade, but the comeback will happen in a one-year time.
Nowadays, every established manufacturer is focusing on crossovers and SUVs. On top of that, electrification is a must, so Mark LT should hit the dealerships with some sort of hybrid setup. We are still waiting for Lincoln to confirm the return of this iconic pickup truck. Until that happens, this is what we know so far.
2022 Mark LT Design
For a start, the 2022 Lincoln Mark LT won’t share a lot of things with its predecessor. Instead, the Ford F-150 pickup will reportedly have a great impact on Lincoln’s arriving truck. This is the most likely outcome, but the Mark LT model will offer more luxury. Still, two models will wear a recognizable design language and also a similar shape.
On top of that, the Mark LT variant will also borrow a couple of things from the Lincoln Navigator SUV. This especially refers to the front fascia, including the same layout. On the other hand, the side profile will be different as Mark LT will combine stylish design with a more aggressive approach. A longer wheelbase is the most likely outcome and we also expect to see very stylish alloy wheels.
Interior Full of Luxury
This is a brainer. The 2022 Lincoln Mark LT will offer a premium interior design as this is a luxury pickup truck. Again, the cabin will look closer to the Navigator SUV and its interior. The Mark LT model will surely arrive with various cab configurations. Thanks to that, two rows of seats are guaranteed.
We can’t really think of something new as we imagine the truck’s interior to look like the interiors of the brand’s crossovers and SUVs. That includes the same displays, the same dashboard design, and even the same upholstery. On the other hand, a pickup truck will probably offer a more practical cabin with new interior color schemes.
Under the hood, the 2022 Lincoln Mark LT will most likely arrive with a 3.5-liter V6 engine. It is a twin-turbo gasoline variant with 450 horsepower. On top of that, this engine is capable of developing up to 510 lb-ft of torque. A 10-speed automatic transmission will be on offer as well. We mentioned a hybrid powertrain, which is a very likely outcome.
Lincoln has no other choice if the plan is to make Mark LT pickup truck popular again. Many reports are predicting the same hybrid setup that is available in the F-150 Hybrid model. The Mark LT pickup truck will be a rear-wheel-drive model with an optional all-wheel-drive system.
2022 Lincoln Mark LT Release Date, Price
Reportedly, the forthcoming 2022 Lincoln Mark LT will hit the dealerships in the first quarter of 2022. The price is not available yet. However, Mark LT will rival other luxury pickup trucks such as Sierra Denali and range-topping trim levels from Nissan, Toyota, Ford, and Chevrolet. Because of that, the Mark LT model will surely cost above $50,000.
