GM releases 2015 Chevy Silverado Midnight, GMC Sierra Elevation

2015 Chevrolet Silverado Midnight 030

If you thought General Motors was done introducing new, all-black special edition pickups for 2015, you were wrong. Joining the GMC Canyon Nightfall are the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado Midnight and the new GMC Sierra Elevation edition.

First up is the Sierra Elevation, which actually comes in three colors other than black, none of which, however, probably look as good as the black model the automaker has trotted out for us all to gawk at.

The truck’s defining outward feature is its monochromatic look achieved through front and rear bumpers, bodyside moldings, door handles, a grille surround and mirror caps that all match the paint color. The truck also features 20-inch black wheels, fog lamps, 4G LTE Wi-Fi and all the standard equipment.

In addition to the monochromatic styling on the Elevation edition, the differentiator for this particular Sierra trim is its price: it starts at $34,865 for 2WD with the standard, 285-horsepower, 305-lb.-ft. of torque 4.3-liter V6. If you want 4WD, the price notches up to $38,795. Meanwhile, the 2WD/5.3-liter V8 combo (pushing 355 horsepower and 383 foot-pounds of torque) will run $35,960 while the 4WD/V8 will run $39,890.

Next up is the Chevy. Built atop a black Silverado Z71, the Midnight Edition blacks out the front end with black grille, bumper, headlight bezels, tow hooks and fog lamps. The side moldings, beltline moldings, 18-inch wheels, Z71 badges, spray-in bedliner and even the bowties—all black.

The Midnight edition will be available on either 1500 double-cab or crew-cab Silverado models with package prices between $1,595 and $1,995. However, only 5,000 of the packages will be made.
