You sir are delusional. First of all the Lincoln LT is a...good truck. But thats about it.
Automotive News is reporting that Lincoln will soon end production of the Mark LT pickup, based on the Ford F-150 half-ton.
Even though the aforementioned is quoted from a previous post it is absolute truth. The Lincoln LT is done! Accept that and move on. You are starting to sound like you need to start cutting back on some of those Hurricanes you keep pushing everyone here to drink. Maybe you have had one to many?!?!
Maybe you should consider another truck for you wife.

I will still purchase the 2008 Lincoln LT ! The Lincoln LT more than likely will be back 2011 ! History repeats itself, like I told Gregg. Ford will have trouble selling the new F150 luxury truck, bad move. Luxury belongs with Lincoln ! Now I will have a Hurricane ! Have a nice day !

Kcram I know your message was posted I while ago but, I have been in the market for an 08 LT and the word is that it is finished. All the dealers I've talked to say that it discontinued for good due to bad sale. It make sense because I never see them on the road. This is a shame because I would love to see a new revamped version for 09 or 10. The advantage is that they are practically giving them away I got quoted $35,825 for one. The sticker on the truck I may buy is $49,505. That is fully loaded mono chrome elite package, 20s, sunroof, step rails, ect. Is this the best deal and is it worth it or should I just get an F150 with similar options.

Get the 09 F150. It has a stiffer frame, is quieter, offers side airbags (you cannot get them for any price on the LT), a six speed automatic and stability control (again, not available for any price on the LT).

The 08 LT 4 x 2 has traction control, The 4 x 4 does not and I am not sure why you would nead it. Side airbags IMHO just adds to the cost of the vehicle, it's a safety item but do I really need them? Some of the reviews I read about the 09 with the six speed tranny were not too kind. The 08 LT is a four speed with overdrive. As someone else said, when I come to a stoplight and look over in my LT, I am not going to see someone next to me with the same truck, unlike an F-150!

Most people would see little to no difference between your LT and an 04 - 08 F150 equipped the same way. That grill is the big difference and is obtainable aftermarket for an F150.
The side airbags definitely make the truck a safer ride. It is often erroneously assumed that the wider, taller stance by itself provides good side protection. Not necesarily so. Besides...why do you want a luxury vehicle that doesn't offer stability control, side airbags and other things that are standard on many non-lux vehicles? BTW, that six speed provides better fuel economy than the four speed.
Of course the LT is a good truck, as it is based on the F150, a good truck. But there is also a reason it is now defunct: it did not sell. That was in part due to the cynical badge engineering job. As dumb as the Blackwood was with its non-optional covered trunk and no availability of 4WD, at least it had unique Lincoln styling. The LT may have been more viable if they had used Navigator body panels and interior.

Maybe it's because I am one hell of a driver,I have never been in a side impact crash, with over 2 million miles on the clock. I don't live in the snow nor travel in it. If I was going to buy an 09 I would get a Dodge with the Hemi, a better engine than Ford's with more power and same MPG. Plus I don't pull a trailer..
