The Blackwood is a stylish luxury cruiser that capitalizes on the latest trend: the SUV/pickup hybrid. Based on the hugely popular Navigator, the Blackwood trades the rear cargo compartment for a small carpeted pickup bed with a power operated tonneau. Unfortunately, the African Wenge wood exterior panels in the concept vehicle will be replaced by a composite material with photolaminated wood "bands". A 5.4L V-8 (300-bhp/355 lb.-ft.) is standard. The Blackwood is available in rear-wheel drive only. Production is limited to less than 10,000 vehicles per year.
Uniformly, the prospective customers who have a strong attraction to the Blackwood tend to own other luxury vehicles as well as sports cars, sports sedans, high-end trucks and SUVs. Most are looking for an exclusive vehicle that makes a unique statement and satisfies their transportation needs both for work and to support an active lifestyle
