Nissan Celebrates the Eclipse with New Midnight Edition Models

1

Nissan’s pickups have received a blacked out Midnight Edition treatment.

The Nissan Frontier, Titan, and Titan XD models are the latest additions to the automaker’s custom Midnight Edition lineup, which according to Nissan, sell on average two times faster than standard models. The Frontier, Titan, and Titan XD Midnight Editions join the existing Altima, Maxima, Murano, Pathfinder, Rogue, and Sentra Midnight Editions.

The Titan and Titan XD Midnight Editions receive a lengthy list of special features, including a black grille with dark insert, dark headlights, black for light finishers, black fender louvers (Titan XD only), black outside rearview mirrors and door handles, step rails, black exterior badging, 20-inch black-painted aluminum wheels, body-color matched front and rear bumpers, charcoal interior trim, Midnight Edition exterior badges, and available Midnight Edition floor mats. Both Titan models can be purchased in a choice of three exterior colors for the Midnight Edition: Magnetic Black, Gun Metallic, and Pearl White.

For the standard Titan, the package is available on Crew Cab SV and SL grade 4×4 and 4×2 models. The Titan XD Midnight Edition is offered only on Crew Cab SV and SL grade 4×4 models with a Cummins 5.0-liter V8 Turbo Diesel engine.

For the 2018 Nissan Frontier Midnight Edition, the pickup adds a gloss black grille, 18-inch gloss black aluminum wheels, semi-gloss black step rails, body-color matched front and rear bumpers, black outside rearview mirrors and door handles, black badging, and available Midnight Edition floor mats. The Frontier Midnight Edition is available in Crew Cab SV 4×2 and 4×4 automatic transmission models and in a choice of Magnetic Black, Gun Metallic, and Glacier White exterior shades.

Pricing will be announced closer to the models’ launch in late fall 2017.

“Following the tremendous response to the original Maxima SR Midnight Edition, we’ve created a complete portfolio of the popular blacked-out Midnight Edition look among our core Nissan sedan, crossover and SUV models,” said Billy Hayes, division vice president, Nissan Sales, Nissan North America, Inc. “We expect the strong customer appeal to continue with the expansion of the Midnight Edition package to our TITAN, TITAN XD and Frontier pickups.”
