2011 BMW 528i: Where Luxury Makes Sense

May 05, 2011


Nothing like toiling through rush-hour traffic in a car as luxurious as our 2011 BMW 528i. Just sit back and enjoy the quiet, the seat heaters, the plush ride and even its smell of its quality interior materials.

Then I saw this...thing. A Lincoln Blackwood! Talk about unicorns.

For those who don't know, the Blackwood was a luxury pickup truck, basically a done-up F-150, that "sold" in America in 2002. It's a pickup with a carpeted truck bed featuring LED lights. Needless to say it was a sales flop, only selling about 3,300 in the U.S. for prices below what it originally stickered for.

Couldn't help but wonder as I drove beside them if they felt as good in their luxurious pickup as I did in the Bimmer...and, more importantly, what they're hauling in their "cargo trunk."
