2021 Toyota Tacoma Nightshade Special Edition Specs

Toyota Tacoma

The second special edition on offer for 2021, the Nightshade is essentially the Limited in its evening attire. It looks ominously stylish with its blacked-out exterior trimmings, which include the door handles, fog light bezels, mirror caps, and exhaust tips. Naturally, the grille gets the same treatment, but the Nightshade receives a bespoke front fascia, too, in the form of a carbon style black grille. It rides on the same 18-inch wheels as the Limited, but they are painted dark smoke and come outfitted with black wheel locks and lug nuts to complete the look. It can be had in one of three exterior colors: Midnight Black Metallic, Magnetic Gray Metallic, or the added-cost Windchill Pearl hue.
