The last of the “Mark Lincolns,” and overlapping in time with the “Em Kay” series begun with the MK9 concept three years earlier, the Mark X was “Lincoln’s T-Bird.” Pronounced “Mark Ten,” it was a direct take-off on the 2002-2005 two-seat Thunderbird but with a number of luxury touches.
The focal point of Mark X’s exterior was a new Lincoln grille. The polished aluminum egg-crate grille features a rhythmic pattern of solid horizontal and vertical chrome trim. Two High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps use an arc capsule to generate a faster response and produce double the amount of light compared to a conventional headlamp.
Occupants access the Mark X using slender polished aluminum door handles that are flush-mounted to the door surfaces. Thumb locators set in the door handles allow the handles to reveal themselves when pushed. Both doors can also be opened by remote keyless entry. To ease ingress and egress, one-piece hinges move the doors forward and out to give increased foot clearance at the front compared with conventional hinges.
The Mark X’s boattail rear fascia offers pure and clean surfaces without typical bumper offsets. Wide LED tail lamps center the Lincoln emblem. Consistent with the vehicle’s integrated design theme, dual exhaust pipes are neatly placed into the sloping rear contour.
Interior workmanship of Mark X is flawlessly crafted. The Lime Sorbet interior is complemented with White Corian accents, polished aluminum, dark chrome, natural grain leather seating, plush sheepskin flooring and tailored tone-on-tone stitching throughout. The instrument panel integrates a softly illuminated, jewel-like instrument cluster that combines analog with digital technology. A solid flowing center console constructed of ribbed dark chrome separates driver and passenger, unites the interior with the exterior and conceals a storage unit in the rear bulkhead.
A four-spoke, power adjustable steering wheel wrapped with leather and dark chrome features cruise, volume and navigation controls. The SelectShift transmission allows the driver to shift from manual drive to a five-speed automatic from the steering wheel or shifter in the center console.
Occupants further benefit from Mark X amenities like rain-sensing windshield wipers, an automatic dimming interior rear view mirror and Lincoln’s exclusive THX-certified audio system with six speakers, automatic mute control and automatic volume adjust. Dual-zone climate control with pollen filtration allows a 30-degree Fahrenheit difference in temperature settings for the driver and passenger.
