The only thing automakers like more than making money is introducing blacked-out special editions of its models that help them make even more money. The trend of murdered-out rides continues with the 2018 Nissan Titan, Titan XD, and Frontier pickup trucks, which get a special Midnight Edition trim.

The latest members of Nissan’s Midnight Edition line – which already includes the Altima, Maxima, Murano, Pathfinder, Rogue, and Sentra – Nissan’s three pickups take a similar approach to the darkness. Black grilles, smoked headlights, black mirror caps and foglight surrounds, black wheels, black bumpers, black badging, and black upholstery are all standard, although interestingly, black won’t be the only paint on offer. Nissan will also sell its newest Midnight Editions in Gun Metallic and Pearl White on the Titans and Gun Metallic and Glacier White on the Frontier.

As for the trucks themselves, the Titan and Titan XD Midnight Edition will be available in the SV or SL trims, although the latter will only be available with the 5.0-liter Cummins turbodiesel V8. The Frontier Midnight Edition will only arrive in mid-range SV grade. Crew Cab bodies are the order of the day, and aside from the four-wheel-drive-only Titan XD, customers can choose between two- or four-wheel drive.

Nissan hasn’t announced pricing for its latest special editions, although the Midnight Edition does add $1,195 to the cost of a Maxima SR and $990 to a Rogue or Altima SR. As the content is broadly similar, we’d expect Titan, Titan XD, and Frontier Midnight Editions to fall somewhere between those two figures.
