2005 Lincoln Mark LT

OK, so the last Lincoln-badged pickup was the Blackwood (a.k.a. the Blackhole, the Deadwood, and the Whywould), a vehicle mis-begotten enough to make the Edsel look inspired. Rest assured, the new Mark LT is no Blackwood. Based on the very fine SuperCrew, the four-door Lincoln Mark LT promises to be-unlike its monochromatic forebear-a bona fide, honest-to-goodness truck, available with two- or four-wheel drive and sporting an actual, fill-it-up-and-get-it-dirty bed (no carpeting or African wenge wood back there, thank you very much). Behind that familiar waterfall grille resides the F-150‘s excellent, three-valves-per-cylinder, 5.4-liter Triton V-8, which produces 300 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque.

ON SALE: Early 2005
PRICE: $52,845-$56,545
ENGINE: 300-hp, 5.4-liter V-8
BOTTOM LINE: Let’s pretend the Blackwood never happened, OK? This is a worthy Lincoln pickup.
