2007 Lincoln Mark LT Interior
This interior review was written when the 2007 Lincoln Mark LT was new.
With available seating for up to five passengers, the 2007 Lincoln Mark LT receives accolades for its spacious interior cabin. Kelley Blue Book asserts, "The sophisticated design rivals the new Cadillac Escalade EXT's cabin." Still, some reviewers find the seats uncomfortable and criticize its interior material quality.
According to the Kelley Blue Book also likes it, saying that the Mark LT's "contemporary, stylish and comfortable interior is better described as modern than plush." Still, Edmunds complains, "At first glance, the interior would seem to be upscale enough to impress most luxury SUV owners, but there is simply too much plastic considering the LT's near $50,000 price." Consumer Guide adds that gauge "markings [are] too small," as are "[c]ontrols for audio" and "automatic climate systems." Moreover, Consumer Guide says, "LT puts slightly tonier finishes on interior panels, but they're a veneer over the same, hollow-feeling, hard plastic surfaces as in its Ford cousin.", the Mark LT has "the best pickup interior in the business" and is "a study in elegance, sophistication and comfort."
Auto writers, on balance, are pleased with the Mark LT's spacious five-passenger seating arrangement. "Whether you find the contrasting piping on the seats stylish or not, you'll appreciate the well-cushioned comfort those seats offer," says Kelley Blue Book. "Plus, those seats are wide and accommodating, like they were lifted from a late-'60s Continental," adds Edmunds.
According to Consumer Guide, the Mark LT's power/heated front bucket seats are "firm, flat, but comfortable." Even so, MSN complains that they're "not fully power-adjustable." Consumer Guide, however, notes that the Mark LT's front seats afford "[a]mple head, [and] legroom."
While many reviewers find the Mark LT's rear seats to be uncomfortable, most concede that its head and legroom are abundant and well suited for three adults. According to a road test conducted by the Consumer Guide explains that the "[p]oorly contoured seat has stingy thigh support, [and an] uncomfortably upright backrest." Even so, the asserts, "But the Mark LT comes with a more practical full rear seat that can accommodate three adults." In fact, the compares it to "those luxurious frequent-flier lounges at big airports." The Auto Channel says, "Those rear passengers will be treated to plenty of leg-, shoulder- and headroom.", the rear seat "wasn't comfortable" because the backrest's "angle is all wrong."
Among the many standard features equipped on the Mark LT are power/heated front seats, a 60/40 split flip-up rear seat, leather upholstery, trip computer and theater dimming interior lighting. "One might expect a power tilt-telescopic steering wheel, but the steering column just tilts and adjusts manually," says MSN.
Standard on every Mark LT is an Audiophile sound system consisting of a six-disc in-dash CD changer with MP3 capability, which Kelley Blue Book says "delivers crisp, powerful music through six speakers and a subwoofer."
Among the many optional features available for the Mark LT are a DVD-based navigation system, SIRIUS Satellite radio and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system.
In addition to the Mark LT's large truck bed, additional cargo room is afforded by an overhead rail storage system, below rear seat storage space, cupholders and map pockets that Consumer Guide says are "[g]enerously sized."
