IT'S HERE! I'm finally reviewing a Lincoln Blackwood. Today I'm going to show you all the quirks and features of the Lincoln Blackwood -- and I'll show you all around the truck and explain why it was such a failure. I'm also going to drive the Blackwood and show you what it's like on the road. Blackwood day is here!

      Not bashing but how do you reconcile the money-making objective of CarsandBids (for yourself and its users), with your unflinching honesty about all that makes some cars very poorly designed and unreliable (like the tonneau cover on this one)? Is there a conflict of interest and desired outcomes there?

    Interesting how when Lincoln decided to try again with a luxury truck (and this time their effort didn't seem like such a failure) a few years later, the new luxury truck (called the Mark LT) was completely identical except for the luxury features and Lincoln grille to the Ford F-Series crew cab model from 2004-2008. In contrast, the Blackwood had an identical front end to the first generation of Lincoln Navigator instead of identical to the Ford F-Series (or the first generation Expedition for that matter, which the first Navigator was based on, but not quite identical to)

    The Blackwood was way ahead of its time while having an identity crisis. It had so much tech that would define the next decade with collision sensors, cooled seats, heated mirrors, and mirror mounted turn signal. However, its identity crisis ruined it, a truck that wanted to be a sedan. Lincoln couldn’t have really predicted that it just would not be liked by the public.

    It honestly seems like the Blackwood was ahead of its time and only had a few questionable decisions (i.e. minor payload, RWD, etc). I'm very curious how much the F-150 Platinum and the King Ranch trim levels were influenced by Lincoln's attempt here.

    In the trucks defense, all you see technology-wise is 19 years old. I mean, think about 19 year old cell phones, tvs, computers...etc So for its time, this was probably top of the line. So of course after all the newer cars/trucks we've seen over the years, this would look horrible. This was more of a roast than a review😑🤣

    Great video, although as a former SSR owner feeling a bit miffed on the trunk... The SSR took this to the next level as far as trunk carpeting and saddle bags. Fully carpeted trunk and carpet on the underside of the cover with logos and plastic fake-wood slits, tracks for accessories, grocery-getter style net, and best of all, saddle bags on either side that had a separate key to lock them. Totally stupid in most use cases but I think that rivals the Blackwood's Trunk for quirkiness.

    These luxury pickups and SUVs really changed how we imagine Cadillacs and Lincolns. Once they were basically coupes, convertibles and sedans only. Back then, if you saw one that was a station wagon, take off your hat: a funeral was passing by! There may even have been a pickup close behind: that was for the flowers. Since then they've become basically anything that sells at the dealership. -still the same, I'm still processing that moment when I saw a Cadillac with a snow plow mounted on the front!
