On the outside it features roof rails, side stirrups, 16-inch aluminum wheels, mirrors, exterior handles and the rear emblem with the Midnight signature, all in black color that gives the characteristic touch to the line.
On the inside, highlights include yellow stitching on the seats, steering wheel, gear lever, handbrake, the central armrest and the leather elements of the front doors.
The pickup is powered by a QR25 2.5-liter gasoline engine with 166hp and 178lb-foot paired to a 6-speed manual transmission. Initially it will be available in Oxford gray exterior color and will soon be released also in black.
