18. Lincoln Blackwood
You might be surprised to learn Lincoln made pickup trucks for one year only in the form of the Blackwood model. That, by itself, should be enough to explain why this upscale pickup is a black sheep car. Back in the early 2000s, Lincoln offered the popular, successful Navigator. It was the golden standard of luxury SUVs at the moment. To capitalize on their success, somebody at Lincoln suggested they should build a pickup version to expand the range. The idea seemed plausible, so soon they sent the first prototypes for testing. The Lincoln used a Ford F-150 platform with the front end and cabin of a Navigator. They added a custom truck bed with a tailgate that opened like doors and it even had a power cover.
The finished product looked like a Navigator truck. Although it was luxurious, it failed as a truck, since the truck bed was so small, it was unusable. But the biggest problem was the price because a new 2002 Lincoln Blackwood started at a whopping $52,000. That was an extremely high price for an unusable truck with a Navigator fascia. As you may expect, the market was not amused, so during its 15 months in production, they only made 3,356.
