    Chicago 2017: Nissan Expands Midnight Edition Model Lineup

      The Midnight Edition started on the Maxima SR and now expands to 6 models in the Nissan lineup.

    Just ahead of the 2017 Chicago International Auto Show, Nissan unveiled five new models that will sport the Midnight Edition label for 2017.   Originally an option on just the Nissan Maxima SR, Nissan has added the trim to 5 more models in its lineup. Sentra, Altima Rogue, Pathfinder and Murano join the Maxima in this trim level.

    All Midnight Edition models will wear black wheels, black spoiler, black mirror caps, and have available special floormats. 

    Sentra SR - Available on both SR and SR Turbo models,  the Sentra SR Midnight Edition includes black 17-inch Midnight Edition aluminum-alloy wheels, black mirror caps, black rear spoiler and available Midnight Edition floor mats. The package has an MSRP1 of $490 USD and is on sale now. Offered on both 2017 Sentra SR and SR Turbo models, the Sentra SR Midnight Edition includes black 17-inch Midnight Edition aluminum-alloy wheels, black mirror caps, black rear spoiler and available Midnight Edition floor mats.

    I can see maybe $490 as it is priced on the Sentra, but for the rest of the lineup I think the package, although trendy and nice, is overpriced for wut you get.

     

    Plus, black paint is cheaper than any other color... so the manufacturer is saving money by painting trim parts black, yet charging estra for it, howbow dah?

    I'm sure you're right about the cost... but at least on the Altima and Maxima, it takes otherwise bland sedans and gives them enough "flare" to be more interesting.  Nissan claims that the Midnight Edition on the Maxima SR sells really well, so that's why they wanted to expand it to other cars in the lineup.

    Yeah, I like the look on the Fords, Chevys and Dodges that have it.  It is definitely a profit maker.

    BTW I am interested in your opinion of the Rogue Sport if you are going to Chicago... maybe a photo or 12?

    I have photos and video left over from Detroit... and plan to get more while I'm here in Chicago.

    Cool.....why just on top models though?

    Hmmm, yeah seems like it, except on the Rogue where it is on the SV, which is a midlevel trim.
