Yeah, it throws in different wheels, tube steps, and painted mirrors, but it still seems a bit steep given that they didn't make an actual black interior with replacement trim to remove the brush-metal-looking stuff.The Midnight Edition ($995) is availalbe on CC SV SWB (4x2 & 4x4) in Magnetic Black, Gun Metallic or Glacier White...and requires VTP ($1890). So, roughly a $3k option when adding both expenses. Midnight Edition floor mats are another $160.

I bought my 2017 in February after researching mid-size trucks for 6 months, the Frontier, even though it is a old platform, had the highest consumer rating of all the mid-size trucks. I'm glad I got it.Not sure why the big deal about the truck being out dated. People reading Motor Trend and Road and Track too much I guess. Those two have us expecting a major update every 3-4 years... The Frontier is a TRUCK and it is still selling well. The 2018 and 2005 resemble each other BUT there are a lot of updates that have happened over the years to improve the machine. I can remember when Ford and Chevy kept the same design for many years and peops kept buying them... Anyone remember the old VW Beetle? Designed in the late 1940's or early 1950's and sold until the late 1970's? Just my 2 cents...
Chrysler built the Valiant/Dart/Duster platform for eleven model years in the US with very little changes. The modern LX chassis Chrysler 300 debuted in 2005 and got a mild refresh in 2011 and is still being built. The Dodge D-series trucks debuted in 1960 and went through three moderate revisions until production ceased after 1993. The Dodge B-series vans debuted in 1971 and aft of the A-pillar are nearly identical all of the way through 2003. Automakers make a lot of money when platforms have this kind of longevity since they don't have to pay for significant retooling costs.I bought my 2017 in February after researching mid-size trucks for 6 months, the Frontier, even though it is a old platform, had the highest consumer rating of all the mid-size trucks.

Besides, I'm 70 years old and kind of a old platform myself...... I would love to have a 1950 Ford or Chevy pickup
Shiet, it’s not confirmed-confirmed till we see them. LOLOL.Is it confirmed-confirmed? LOL Will believe it when it.........happens.
Swift, you've been here longer than moi...so you know what I'm saying.
Makes me wonder what the holdup was. As I understand it the D23/NP300 is smaller than the D40, perhaps they didn't think that North American buyers would want a smaller truck, but now that the mid-size field is so full perhaps they now figure it's time to reintroduce the only truly compact truck or what's close to it.Shiet, it’s not confirmed-confirmed till we see them. LOLOL.
Based on articles and test photos, it’s starting to look promising. Navara body with different bumpers.
