blacked-out trim and wheels, of course, are a currently trendy way to go for special editions. toyota itself brought similarly darkened editions of its tacoma and tundra base-model pickups (see on sister site pickuptrucks.com here) to the big state fair of texas that started friday. and among others, there is a darkened version of the 2019 ford expedition. but there's a nice extra menace in naming your sinister version after a poisonous plant.
the nightshade special edition is built on the upscale 4runner limited trim level's 4x2 and 4x4 versions, and comes in midnight black metallic, magnetic gray metallic and blizzard pearl paint colors. and it's truly a lights-out version, with a gloss-black or black-chrome grille, front and rear bumper trim, badging, mirror caps, door handles, window trim, roof rails and exhaust tip, plus big, black 20-inch wheels. chrome is almost entirely banished.
inside, the nightshade's black interior has black trim that includes the steering wheel, center dashboard and console panels, the shift knob and door grips.
the 2019 4runner nightshade special edition is at toyota dealers now, starting at $46,010 (including a $1,045 destination charge) for the 4x2 version and $48,045 for the 4x4.
