GM is only now reaching the final stages of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado launch, which means that all models, powertrains, body variants and trim levels are in production and widely available at the retail level. But what GM has yet to do as part of the launch is introduce special edition variants of the new Silverado, so we took it upon ourselves to render a particularly noteworthy special edition model – the Midnight Edition.
The Midnight Edition of the last-gen Silverado was essentially a black-out appearance package, and that’s what our Double Cab model is, in spades.
Up front, our new Silverado Midnight Edition features a blacked-out front end, with a body-color bumper, a black Bow Tie logo and a black front skid plates. The side mirror caps, door handles, and DLO window trim have also been blacked out. A large Z71 badge sits prominently on the front fender.
The black-out treatment continues to the back of our new Silverado Midnight Edition, with a black-out treatment to the rear bumper. Our model has single side-exit exhaust, though we imagine that the Midnight Edition special edition of the all-new Silverado will also be offered with dual exhaust. The entire kit sits on large black wheels with an aggressive tire tread.
All in, we have to say that the black-out treatment works well with the all-new Silverado T1, as the sinister treatment complements the aggressive front fascia of the new truck.
Meanwhile, the last-gen Chevrolet Silverado Midnight Edition – pictured above – offered the following unique features:
- Black Bow Tie logos front and rear
- 18-inch 5-spoke black painted alloy wheels
- 18-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires with aggressive tire tread
- Large Z71 badges on doors
- Black front skid plate
The package was only offered on the 2LT and 2LZ (up-level LTZ) trim levels of the K2 Silverado. As for the all-new Silverado, it wouldn’t be out of the ordinary to expect it to receive a Midnight Edition at some point during the 2020 model year, with the all-new Silverado HD getting the same for 2021.
