Jeep Unveils New Special Edition Wrangler, Grand Cherokee


‘Night’ Trim Package Provides Blacked Out Appearance

Jeep arrived at the Los Angeles Auto Show with a couple of new special editions that are sure to appeal to Jeep buyers who are looking for something different. The Grand Cherokee SRT Night package turns the familiar SUV into something of a mystery machine, with a black roof, spoiler and front bezels. The black theme continues onto the side pillars and around the side windows. Badging is also black, as is the 20-inch wheels. Black Laguna leather continues the theme on the interior, which is set off with contrasting silver accent stitching. You can see the Cherokee SRT Night edition at Chapman Jeep early next year.

Wrangler Backcountry Stresses Off-road Abilities

Jeep Wrangler lovers will appreciate all the little touches the new Backcountry edition utilizes to emphasize its ability to handle tough road conditions and off-road trails. From a beefy front end designed to plow through high snow or brush to the powder coated rear bumper, this Wrangler is all business. It’s built on the Sahara platform, so it has the unique Sahara side steps, along with Rubicon rock rails. A hard black roof tops off the package with special graphics adorned on the quarter panels. McKinley leather adorns the interior in black, with a touch of gray providing the accents. An Alpine sound system provides the tunes, while slush mats make cleaning up after a hard day on the road a breeze. The Backcountry Wrangler will be available for test drives at Chapman Jeep later this month.

Cherokee Ready to Unleash the Horses

As with all Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT models, the Night package has the 6.4-liter V8 under the hood, ready to deliver up to 475 horses with a spine crunching 470 foot pounds of torque. This mighty wagon can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.8 seconds on the way to a top speed of 160 miles per hour. “Jeep enthusiasts anticipate and truly appreciate special-edition models that deliver a customized Jeep SUV right from factory,” said Mike Manly, Jeep Brand Chief. “The Grand Cherokee SRT Night and Wrangler Backcountry both offer a distinctive appearance, while delivering an array of prominent performance and capability features.”

Grand Cherokee Offers Four Standard Models

As one of the most popular SUVs on the market, the Jeep Grand Cherokee offers four standard models. The Laredo is the base model, starting at just under $32,000. Spend a little more for the Laredo E and you get some more luxury, including a power 8-way driver’s seat with lumbar support. The Limited is the top of the line, but still comes in at under $40,000 for a 4×4 SUV equipped with every modern luxury and convenience.
