Toyota will expand the availability of its dark-trimmed Nightshade Special Editions to the 2019 Camry and Highlander in an effort to let customers add a little style to their new vehicle. The more stylish models will debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show and will go on sale in 2019.

The Nightshade Package comes on the mid-range SE grade of the Camry. It adds black parts for the rear spoiler, window moldings, mirror caps, radio antenna, door handles, and badges. The sedan also rides on a set of black 18-inch wheels. Buyers can specify these dark accents over Midnight Black Metallic, Celestial Silver, or Super White exterior paint.
The tweaks are similar for the Highlander Nightshade, and like the Camry, the package comes on the SE trim level. The black trim covers the rear spoiler, radio antenna, door handles, mirror caps, and Toyota emblems, in addition to surrounding the headlights and foglights. The SUV rides on a set of black 19-inch wheels with matching lug nuts. The dark trim will be available on models in Midnight Black Metallic, Predawn Gray Mica, Salsa Red Pearl, and Blizzard Pearl. Toyota will only build 5,000 units of the Highlander with the Nightshade package.
Toyota first introduced the Nightshade Edition on the 4Runner, Tacoma, and Tundra a few months ago. Like the Camry and Highlander, the earlier models also received a bounty of black trim. The 4Runner even had a dark chrome grille.

Toyota's Lexus luxury division follows a similar theme at the L.A. Auto Show by introducing the LX Inspiration Series (gallery above) at the event. The gargantuan SUV wears special Black Onyx and a matching set of 21-inch wheels. Black trim adorns the headlights, taillights, and window surrounds. Plus, there's a dark chrome grille surround. The cabin mixes things up by using Moonlight White semi-aniline leather on the seats, but mixes it with black parts for the headliner, center console, carpets, cargo mats, and key gloves.

DALLAS (Nov. 2, 2018) – Toyota is preempting the earlier sunset associated with the end of Daylight Savings Time this weekend by turning down the lights on two new Nightshade Special Editions. The 2019 Camry and Highlander will both get Nightshade Special Edition packages that offer sporty styling with black accents, guaranteed to stand out with the sun up or down. The Camry Nightshade Special Edition and the Highlander Nightshade Special Edition will both be on display at the Los Angeles Auto Show and be available for purchase in 2019.
Turning Even More Heads: Camry Nightshade
The 2019 Camry, already known for its stylish exterior, adds the Nightshade Special Edition package to the SE grade on which it’s based to give a blacked-out look that is sure to turn heads. Black 18-inch wheels and a black spoiler highlight this special edition package.
Additional exterior accents continue the theme in the form of black window molding, black mirror caps, a black shark fin, and black door handles, while black exterior Toyota emblems complete the Nightshade’s look. The Camry Nightshade Special Edition will be available at dealerships in 2019 in colors Midnight Black Metallic, Celestial Silver, and Super White.
Highlander Nightshade is Sexy and Sleek
The Highlander Nightshade Special Edition makes the SE grade even sportier, adding black accents to its rear spoiler, shark fin antenna, exterior door handles, and mirror caps. Black 19-inch wheels, complete with black lug nuts, will match the black headlights and fog lamps. The Toyota emblems on the front and back will get the same treatment.
The Highlander Nightshade Special Edition will be available this January in a limited run of 5,000 total units, available in Midnight Black Metallic, Predawn Gray Mica, Salsa Red Pearl, and Blizzard Pearl.
The Camry and Highlander Nightshade Special Editions comes on the heels of the 4Runner Nightshade Special Edition announcement last month, which added the same black accents to its Limited grade. The 4Runner Nightshade Special Edition is available in select colors: Midnight black Metallic, Magnetic Gray Metallic and Blizzard Pearl.
