lincoln LT

7 posts in this topic

had an LT out on an extended drive today. city streets, freeways, etc. what a truck. more solid and quieter than my escalade ext. nice interior (except the two toned leather steering wheel needed to be swapped for wood). the piping on the seats was tops! stereo was incredible and the truck sits higher. i like the electronic switching on 2 or 4 WD. i had to replace the front axle on my ext at 50KW (the gm folks call it a 50,000 mile tune up, happens a lot). 35 less hp but peppy and runs on 87 octane. this will probably be my first non gm truck ever. sits higher and doesn't have any slop in the steering. wow! :)

Sounds impressive. You do realize the next EXT is coming out in like March 06 right? Just a thought in case you wanted to compare the two.

Have you driven a new F-150 Lariat or King Ranch? I just can't see how it's worth the price increase over them.

i am going to look at the new ext just to make sure i am not missing the boat. if it is an improvement over the one i have....... there is no way that gas could be any more in the lincoln as my current escal. ext takes PREMIUM. and believe you me, it needs 91 or better to get decent milage (and thats with a K&N air filter). the lincoln wins the gas arguement by default as it runs on 87 which is about 20 pennies cheaper.

Be cautious. That 20 cents is uickly approacing only a 6% price differential over regular.
