This collaboration will help Rivian as much as Ford. Rivian will gain insights to manufacturing, vendor and distribution structure . Ford will have instant access to latest battery/motor skateboard chassis; they just need to provide a body and interior. As far as I know, Dr Scaringe mentioned that he would sell direct and service his BEVs via mobile service vehicles provided by Cox. If this hold true, this will be an idea symbiotic relationship for a legacy venturing into BEV and for a new BE startup! Godspeed to Ford and Rivian!

The title of the post suggests Rivian will be building a Lincoln before they build an R1T.

It will not be. It will simply be the first vehicle built from the Ford/Rivian partnership.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's called the R1LT or R1LS. "L" for Lincoln.

I would be very surprised. This is going to be entirely a Lincoln-designed product on Rivian's platform. Compare a Ford Explorer to a Lincoln Aviator and that's the kind of similarity to expect. Automakers are far beyond slapping a different badge on the same design and calling it a day. The Lincoln model should have no visual similarities to a Rivian. The renderings above are completely off the mark.
