Nissan Adds Special Midnight Edition Package to Six Models
Altima, Maxima, Murano, Pathfinder, Rogue, and Sentra
Nissan is expanding the availability of its Midnight Edition equipment package from the Maxima SR to the Altima, Murano, Pathfinder, Rogue, and Sentra.
The package was launched last year and includes black wheels, spoiler, mirror caps, and fancy floor mats with additional equipment for each model.
"The idea of expanding the availability of the Midnight Edition package was driven by customers who loved the blackout treatment on Maxima SR and asked for it to be available on other popular Nissan vehicles," Nissan Sales and Marketing and Operations senior VP Christian Meunier said in a statement.
"The six models offering Midnight Edition packages account for more than 75 percent of our U.S. sales, so we think they will find a receptive audience."
Nissan says the original package was created for the 2016 Maxima SR and now accounts for 85 percent of Maxima SR sales. Aside from the exclusive black paint, other colors options now include white, gray, and red for all six models.
"We're creating a clear visual identity package across key models in the Nissan lineup," said Meunier.
Here are the official Midnight Edition details broken down by vehicle from Nissan:
Sentra SR: Available for Sentra SR and SR Turbo models at $490, the upgrade includes black 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, black mirror caps, black rear spoiler, and fancier floormats.

Whew. That's a lot of black. If you want to save some bucks, just buy some flat black paint at your local hardware store and do it yourself. We can't promise it will look as good, however.
