Nissan Eclipses Truck Market with Three Midnight Edition Pickups

Nissan Eclipses Truck Market with Three Midnight Edition Pickups

By Philly Murtha, August 21, 2017

During the Aug. 21 total solar eclipse over Nashville, Tennessee, Nissan rolled out Midnight Edition packages for its Titan and Titan XD large pickups and for the Frontier midsize pickup. These “blacked out” packages for the automaker’s three pickup models will be available in late fall, according to Nissan officials, although pricing is yet to be announced.

The custom Midnight Edition packages are most popular variants—selling two times faster than standard models, according to Nissan. Midnight Edition variants already are offered for the Altima, Maxima, Murano, Pathfinder, Rogue, and Sentra. The blacked-out packages for the trucks will be offered at a discount in comparison to trucks ordered with separate items in the package.

Black fender louvers are included on the Titan XD. The trucks will ride on 20-in. black-painted aluminum alloy wheels.

Midnight Black variants also will include body-color front and rear bumpers and feature charcoal interior trim. Black Midnight Edition badging and special floor mats are optional. Both Titan and Titan XD Midnight Editions will come in three exterior paint colors: Magnetic Black, Gun Metallic, and Pearl White.

The Midnight Edition package for Nissan’s large pickups is available on Crew Cab SV and SL trim levels of 4x4 and 4x2 models. The Titan XD Midnight Edition package is limited to Crew Cab SV and SL 4x4 models equipped with the Cummins 5.0-liter, V-8 turbodiesel engine that makes 310 horsepower and generates 555 lb.-ft. of torque.

Nissan’s 2018 Frontier Midnight Edition package will feature a gloss-black grille, semi-gloss black step rails, body-color front and rear bumpers, black outside rearview mirrors, door handles, black badging, and optional custom floor mats. This Frontier will ride on 18-in. gloss-black aluminum alloy wheels and will be available on Crew Cab SV 4x2 and 4x4 models with automatic transmission. Three color choices are: Magnetic Black, Gun Metallic, and Glacier White.
