Previously, the dark special-editions have been available on the SE-trimmed Camry, Highlander, Corolla, 4Runner and Sienna, according to Motor Trend. Now the Japanese automaker will make Nightshade variants of the Tacoma and Tundra pickup trucks and the Sequoia SUV, all of which are based on the luxe limited trim and available in two- or four-wheel drive.

All three get black leather, mirror caps and door handles, as well as a darkened chrome grille. The Tacoma gets exclusive Dark Smoke 18-inch wheels, a revised grille insert, and a murdered-out exhaust tip and fog-light surrounds.

The Tundra Nightshade’s treatment is similar to the Tacoma’s, while the Tundra-derived Sequoia full-size ute features shadowy badging, black body moldings and ornamented front fascia.

The Nightshade Editions look most menacing in Midnight Black Metallic or Magnetic Gray Metallic. But if that’s not your style, the Tacoma and Tundra are also available in Windchill Pearl, and the Tundra can be finished in Super White.
