Well look at the facts:
1) Looked too much like an F-150
2) The "bed" of the truck was useless as a bed and has less cargo space than a Lincoln Towncar. With the carpet and polished aluminum you sure aren't hauling woodchips, EVER.
3) Couldn't take the hard cover off so nothing over 15" tall was going into the bed.
4) Only seated four despite being a crew cab.
5) No 4-WD or AWD - even as an option.
6) Priced higher than the Cadillac EXT
7) Limited ground clearance
Lincoln built a beautiful street truck that was made with car shows in mind. For that purpose it was a wonderful rig, however it just was not practical for day-to-day use, and how the marketing people dropped the ball on that is beyond me. I mean the feedback had to have been negative in the focus groups on usability on the vehicle. Maybe they thought they'd sell on the "oooohhhhhhhhh" and "aaaaahhhhhhhhh" appeal. I mean I have to admit, it was pretty darn plush inside and the trunk, errr, bed, errr what ever you want to call was a sight to see.
But it just wasn't practical. The only thing it really was good for from a truck stand point was pulling a trailer on a ball as long as you didn't exceed tongue weight issues and as long as there weren't more than four people needing a ride (or three and a pet).
It was a good concept - but clearly it was WAY over engineered by the marketing people, like so many other Ford products right now. I mean power folding running boards are nice as well as power folding third seats, but I'd rather have my production and R&D dollars go into getting better mileage and more horsepower out of my engine, or spending a few extra bucks on better interior materials, or a more durable paint process.
For me - those are the things that sell a vehicle - especially when it comes to a vehicle like a truck that I'm going to use and abuse.
