The pickup truck market is growing globally and new models are set to join the game. The increasing demand was also the reason while the carmakers returned some discontinued models and we recently witnessed the return of the mid-size Ranger to the US. The redesigned light-duty versions from GM and Ram arrived for the 2019 model year and the all-new heavy-duty versions wait for the 2020 model year launch. Jeep will also bring the Wrangler-based Ute but there are also rumors circulating about the return of several other models.
Lincoln discontinued the luxury Mark LT truck in 2008 for the US market while continued the sales of the model until 2014 in Mexico. This essentially rebadged version of the best-selling Ford F-150 had a luxury equipped cabin and Lincoln’s styling while the chassis and running gear were also shared with the F-150. Ford introduced the high-end F-150 Platinum version to take the place of the luxury Mark LT truck after the 2008 model year.
However, the Lincoln Mark LT model has been rumored for the return in the last few years and the latest speculations claim the arrival of the model as the 2020 Lincoln Mark LT. No confirmation from the company or the prototype model has been spotted on the road. The return of the model would also interfere with the sales of the high-end versions of the Ford F-150 and that is also the reason why we don’t see the rumors justified. However, let’s see what rumors suggest.
