12. Lincoln Blackwood
You may be surprised to learn that the Lincoln car company made pickup trucks, but for only one year. It was in the form of the Blackwood model. Back in the early 2000’s, Lincoln had the popular, successful Navigator. It was the golden standard of luxury SUVs back then.
Wanting to capitalize on that success, somebody at Lincoln suggested they build a pickup version to expand the range. The idea seemed plausible and soon, they were testing the first prototypes. Lincoln used the Ford F-150 platform with the front end and cabin of the Navigator, but with a custom truck bed. It came with a tailgate that opened like doors and had a power cover. The finished product looked like a Navigator truck, yet it was luxurious.
However, the Blackwood failed as a truck, since the truck bed was small and unusable. But the biggest problem was the price. The brand new 2002 Lincoln Blackwood started at a whopping $52,000. This was an extremely high price for an unusable truck with the Navigator fascia.
As you would expect, the market was not amused and during its 15 months in production, Lincoln only made 3,356 of them. Today, fans consider it a collector’s vehicle, so perfectly preserved Blackwood trucks command high prices.
