What Was the Last Year That Lincoln Made a Pickup Truck?

The last year that Lincoln produced a pickup truck was in 1982. It was the Lincoln Mark VI, and it was the only pickup truck ever made by the company.

The Mark VI was produced for just one year, and it was one of the most unique pickup trucks on the market at the time. It had a two-door body style, with a full-sized cab, and a short bed. It was powered by a 5.0L V8 engine that could produce up to 140 horsepower.

The exterior of the Lincoln Mark VI featured chrome bumpers, grille, and trim. Inside, it had an AM/FM radio, air conditioning, power windows and locks, cruise control, and a tilt steering wheel. The interior also included leather bucket seats and cloth upholstery on the doors and dash.

The Lincoln Mark VI had some unique features that set it apart from other pickups at the time. It had four-wheel drive as an option and an optional camper package that included an electric winch in the bed to help with loading cargo. It also had independent front suspension for improved handling over rough terrain.

Despite its uniqueness and innovative features, sales of the Mark VI were not strong enough for Lincoln to continue production beyond 1982. That year marked the end of Lincoln’s foray into producing pickup trucks as they shifted their focus back to luxury sedans and SUVs instead.

Since then, other automakers have stepped in to fill the gap in luxury pickups left by Lincoln’s departure from this market segment. But for those who remember this one-of-a-kind vehicle, 1982 will always be remembered as the last year that Lincoln made a pickup truck.


1982 marked the end of Lincoln’s production of their only ever pickup truck – The Mark VI – which boasted some unique features including four-wheel drive options as well as an electric winch in its camper package bed liner. Since then other automakers have taken up production of luxury pickups but this one off model will always be remembered fondly.
