Nissan Expands Availability of Popular Midnight Packages

Everyone looks good in black. But did you know that every Nissan looks pretty darn sleek in all black, too? Thankfully, it just got a whole lot easier—and cheaper—to give your Nissan vehicle an urban, stylish look. This is thanks to the new Nissan Midnight Packages, which dress your Nissan in black details for a dark and handsome appearance.

The Nissan Midnight Package isn’t exactly new. It first made an appearance in 2015 on a TV awards program, and was then featured on the Nissan Maxima. The brand had no plans to market it, but they didn’t have to. People saw the look and loved it. They began calling to inquire how they could buy a Maxima that looked like that. Nissan gave the people what they wanted and created a black-on-black package on the Maxima SR. The package made the look much more affordable than buying every part separately as dealer options.

The Midnight Package has been so popular that it’s made up 85% of all Maxima SR sales. With success like that, Nissan figured it was time to share the love. You’ll now find Midnight Packages on six different vehicles—the Sentra, Altima, Rogue, Murano, Pathfinder, and the Maxima. For your next car, consider paying a visit to Blackburn Nissan and choosing a Nissan with a polished, urban, black-on-black look.

Nissan Earns a Whole Bunch of IIHS Top Safety Ratings

Four Nissan models have received IIHS Top Safety ratings. Is this a big deal? Yes! Why? Because the IIHS (or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) is one of the strictest and prestigious safety associations in America, and getting the nod from them is like an automotive medal of honor. And Nissan racked up a whopping four.

The 2016 Nissan Rogue and the 2016 Nissan Sentra were both named IIHS Top Safety Picks, meaning that they ranked “Good” or higher in all five of the IIHS’s crashworthiness test categories.

The 2016 Nissan Maxima and the 2016 Nissan Murano each earned the highest of the IIHS Top Safety ratings: the Top Safety Pick+. To earn that coveted little plus-sign, a vehicle must not only earn those five “Good” ratings, but also score and “Advanced” or “Superior” in front crash prevention systems.

What does this mean for Nissan drivers across America? Just that they can feel really good–and really safe–every time they get behind the wheel.

The all-new 2015 Nissan Murano is turning heads, especially with its incredible new design. In fact, the highly-styled SUV is topping its segment—pretty impressive considering it’s one of the largest groups on the market.

According to the Detroit Free Press, the 2015 Murano performance is beating out competitors left and right, especially cars like the Ford Edge. Both models premiered at the same time, but drivers and reviewers can’t stop talking about the unparalleled performance and design in the new Murano.

“We set out to make a big leap,” Murano chief engineer Chris Reed said. “We wanted a concept vehicle we could build.”

The 2015 Murano has striking looks, added interior room, and luxury materials. Under the hood the SUV has a 3.5-liter V6 engine paired with a continuously-variable transmission, cranking out 260 horsepower and still getting 28 highway mpg. Aside from that, the Murano is getting an overhauled steering and braking system, as well as sport-tailored suspension. If you want great fuel economy without sacrificing space or power, the Murano is for you. You can find it at Blackburn Nissan.
