This Lincoln was the first luxury pickup truck

Although luxury trucks like the Ford F-150 Limited and Ram 1500 Limited seem to be the norm now, there was a time when luxury trucks didn’t exist. Simply put, the automakers didn’t see the point in mixing premium features with something that was supposed to be a work vehicle. But all that changed with the introduction of the Lincoln Blackwood pickup. A hilariously bad truck that was discontinued after one model year.

Why did the Lincoln Blackwood fail?

The Lincoln Blackwood lacked capability and practicality, two things truck buyers want from their vehicles. This Lincoln pickup could not come equipped with four-wheel drive, and the Blackwood had no usable cargo capacity.
