2018 Nissan Frontier and Titan Midnight Editions Unveiled
Out of the shadows of the solar eclipse, Nissan revealed new Midnight Editions of its Frontier and Titan/Titan XD pickups. Carrying on in the tradition of earlier Nissan Midnight Edition passenger cars, each of the trucks gets its own blend of noir-themed cosmetics and offer value pricing for this package of extras.
“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 sales for Nissan. “We expect the strong customer appeal to continue with the expansion of the Midnight Edition package to our Titan, Titan XD and Frontier pickups.”
Available on Frontier Crew Cab SV 4x2 and 4x4 automatic transmission models in a Magnetic Black, Gun Metallic or Glacier White exterior colors, the Frontier Midnight Edition features a gloss-black grille and 18-inch alloy wheels along with semi-gloss black step rails, body-color front/rear bumpers, black outside mirrors and door handles and black badging. Custom Midnight Edition floor mats are available as an option.
Titan and Titan XD editions
Offered on all Titan Crew Cab SV and SL grade 4x4 and 4x2 models and on the Titan XD in Crew Cab SV and SL 4x4 models with a Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel engine, the Midnight Edition features three color choices: Magnetic Black, Gun Metallic and Pearl White. All models boast a black front grille with dark insert, dark headlights, black fog light finishers, black outside rearview mirrors, door handles and step rails, 20-inch black painted aluminum-alloy wheels, body-color front and rear bumpers and black exterior badging. The Titan XD also gets black fender louvers while the cabins in all Midnight Edition Titans have charcoal interior trim and special floor mats.
“We’re finding that buyers in the millennial age group especially are attracted to the Midnight Editions, noted Hayes. Last year, Nissan was ranked as the number one brand for millennial purchases.” While pricing has not yet been released, Nissan indicated each Midnight Edition package will run about half of what it would cost to add each of the features on an individual basis. These new models will be available in the fall.
