Darkness has been looming over Nissan’s lineup as of late. No, there isn’t trouble on the horizon for the Japanese automaker — I’m talking about the rapid spread of its darkening Midnight Edition package. Now joining the dark side are Nissan’s three pickups: the 2018 versions of the Frontier, Titan, and Titan XD.
Let’s start with the smallest (and oldest) of the bunch, the 2018 Frontier. This midsize pickup’s Midnight Edition package is available only on Crew Cab SV models, and it adds a gloss-black grille, 18-inch gloss-black aluminum-alloy wheels, semi-gloss-black step rails, body-color front and rear bumpers, black outside rearview mirrors and door handles and black badging. Midnight Edition floor mats also will be available. Buyers can get the Midnight Edition package in one of three color options: Magnetic Black, Gun Metallic and Glacier White.
The 2018 Titan’s Midnight Edition package will be available on Crew Cab SV and SL models. It will add a black grille with a dark insert, dark headlights, black fog light finishers, black side-view mirrors and door handles, step rails, black badging, 20-inch black-painted aluminum-alloy wheels, body-color front and rear bumpers, charcoal interior trim, Midnight Edition exterior badges. Like the Frontier, the Midnight Edition floor mats also will be available. Buyers can get this package in Magnetic Black, Gun Metallic and Pearl White exterior colors.
The 2018 Titan XD’s Midnight Edition package is only available on Crew Cab SV and SL models with four-wheel drive and the 5.0-liter diesel engine. This package mimics the Titan’s Midnight Edition setup but adds black fender louvers.
Nissan will release these new packages for sale in fall 2017. Pricing will come at a later date, so stay tuned for updates.
