Paint it black, again: Chevrolet revives the Midnight Edition

This time, the all-black aesthetics package will make its way to Chevy's heavy-duty offerings, as well.

Chevrolet's murdered-out Midnight Edition was quite the hot seller last year, selling out in a matter of months. It only makes sense, then, that Big Bowtie would bring back the black -- and it is, with a wider portfolio than before.

Debuting this week at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show, Chevrolet's Midnight Edition will now cover three different truck models -- the Silverado 1500 Z71, the Colorado Z71 and the Silverado 2500 HD Z71.

Thankfully, you get just a bit more than some black paint. The Midnight Edition trucks also come with off-road suspension, a locking rear differential, upgraded tires, a spray-in bedliner and a shield for your transfer case. These models aren't meant to languish in parking lots all day.

There's no mention of pricing or dates of availability just yet, but given that the Midnight Edition applies to 2016-model-year trucks, we're thinking they'll be arriving in dealerships relatively soon.
