Toyota Introducing Black Versions of Camry and Highlander

Toyota Introducing Black Versions of Camry and Highlander

The 2019 models are here, and Toyota has added some interesting and exciting new packages and features for the entire lineup. As announced at the 2018 auto show in Los Angeles, Toyota will now offer both the Camry and Highlander with the popular Nightshade Special Edition package. Formerly only offered only on the Toyota 4Runner, Tacoma, and Tundra, the Nightshade treatment adds a youthful and sporty look to both the interior and exterior of the already sharp looking Toyota line.

What exactly is the Nightshade Special Edition package? Toyota seeks a touch of "mystique" with the Nightshade package. Dark or black coloured bold trim replaces metallic elements on both the exterior and interior of the vehicle when trimmed with the Nightshade Special Edition package.

On the exterior, the Nightshade Special Edition package adds front and rear bumper spoilers, and as expected, regardless of the vehicle colour, they're black. Other exterior trim that would typically be painted metallic or the same as the vehicle's exterior colour, are now trimmed in black. These include badging, window mouldings, side-view mirrors, door handles, roof rails, rocker panels, and door garnish. From the front, the beehive grill on the Camry looks especially impressive with metallic trim laid over black-chrome mouldings. Of course, that's not to say that the Highlander, 4Runner, Tacoma, and Tundra don't hold their own, they do. Metallic accents on black mouldings also surround front headlights and fog lamps. Exhaust tips get the black theme, as well. Probably having the most dramatic effect, black wheel rims complete the Nightshade treatment for the exterior.

The Nightshade Special Edition package includes a variety of interior upgrades, as well. Cabin elements that feature black trimmed accents include the steering wheel, shift knob, shift panel, center instrument cluster, console panels, and inner door grips. Interior upgrades are the same regardless of upholstery colour or any other included packages or options.

Toyota makes the Nightshade Special Edition package available on the mid-range SE version of the Camry. Teamed up with any of the available exterior paint colours - Midnight Black Metallic, Celestial Silver, or Super White - these dark accents make quite a statement.

On the Highlander, the dark trim stands out quite nicely against the available exterior colours of Salsa Red Pearl, Predawn Gray Mica, Blizzard Pearl, and Midnight Black Metallic. Toyota has limited production to 5,000 units with the Nightshade package on the 2019Highlander, which might interest enthusiasts and collectors, alike. Just like the Camry, Toyota makes the Nightshade package available on the SE trim level.

The Nightshade Special Edition package may not be for everyone. But, judging by the 2019 model year, it was at least popular enough to make its way to two more Toyota models.
