No, your eyes are not playing tricks. That is a Lincoln grille on the front of a new Ford F-150 pickup.
Wait! Didn't the Lincoln Mark LT go away last year?
While the luxury version of Ford's full-size pickup was discontinued in the U.S. market, it continues to sell in Mexico. And Lincoln is readying a new Mark LT based on the 2009 F-150 Platinum edition.
In addition to the grille swap, there will be Mark LT badging on the front doors and the tailgate--although this prototype still hauls the F-150 Platinum tailgate.
According to the Lincoln Mexico Web site, a 2008 Mark LT crew cab had a price of $41,300 for rear-wheel drive and $46,000 for four-wheel drive.
Those prices are close to what Ford asks for a F-150 Platinum SuperCrew--$40,910 for rear drive and $44,105 for four-wheel drive.
What this really means is that if you crave the Lincoln look for your new F-150, there will be a part number for a grille to make your dream come true.
