Jeep Australia has announced the release of the Cherokee and Grand Cherokee Night Eagle special editions.
To keep things simple, the special editions effectively add a black style pack to each model.
Based on the Cherokee Longitude, the Night Eagle gets black 18-inch alloy wheels, grille, lower front fascia, roof rails and ‘Jeep’ badging, with matte black Cherokee front door badging with gloss black surround.
Inside the cabin, buyers will find gloss black interior accents on the steering wheel bezel, climate controls and door applique.
The Longitude Technology Package which adds adaptative cruise control with stop & go, side distance warning and automatic parking is standard, as is the 8.4 UConnect infotainment system with satellite navigation, Apple Car Play and Android Auto.
Power comes from the 3.2-litre Pentastar V6 petrol engine producing 200kW and 315Nm. Drive goes to all four wheels through a nine-speed automatic transmission.
According to Jeep, the Cherokee Night Eagle adds over $6400 worth of customer value for $3200, it’s available now from $45,150 plus on-road costs.
The Grand Cherokee Night Eagle features 20-inch black alloys, deep tint privacy glass and all the blacked out bits from the Cherokee.
Moving to the cabin, there’s black leather seat trim with perforated suede inserts, plenty of black gloss accents, and the 8.4-inch infotainment system. The larger Grand Cherokee also gets a sunroof.
