|Jeep has announced the Cherokee ‘Night Eagle’ Edition, based on the Longitude ‘Plus’ mid-trim. The Jeep Night Eagle features black styling cues which reassert the marque’s personality and unique flair for customization.|
Designed to enhance Cherokee’s striking design, the new Cherokee Night Eagle is limited to just 350 examples for the UK. The car’s bold new appearance accentuates its distinctive style, with satin-finished grey elements on the front grille-mounted Jeep badge, the fog light frames, black gloss roof bars and the dedicated Night Eagle name badge, combined with exclusive 18-inch black gloss alloy wheels and deep tint sunscreen glass.
Inside, a leather steering wheel, exclusive leather upholstery, heated front seats with electric lumbar adjustment on the driver’s seat, Uconnect with 8.4-inch screen and navigation system, and TFT instrument panel create a comfortable, high-tech setting for driver and passengers.
Other standard equipment on Cherokee Night Eagle includes a nine-speaker sound system with subwoofer, cruise control, dual-zone climate control, electric tailgate, rear parking sensors, automatic headlamps with washer, rain sensing wipers, and power folding mirrors.
Power comes from the new 2.2-liter MultiJet II turbo diesel engine delivering 200 hp which, combined with Jeep’s smooth nine-speed automatic transmission and rugged Active Drive I 4×4 system, gives the car a top speed of 204 km/h (127 mph) and 0 – 100km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration in 8.5 seconds. Yet the Cherokee Night Eagle can still return 5.69l/100km (49.6 mpg) fuel economy on the combined cycle.
The new Jeep Cherokee Night Eagle is offered in four distinctive body hues: Brilliant Black, Bright White, Billet Silver and Granite Crystal. The price in British pounds starts from 36,795, and roll out is expected later this week.
Domestically, Jeep Malaysia distributes the Cherokee in two variations: the Longtitude and Trailhawk, both 4X4 versions. The Cherokee Longtitude is available in eight color schemes, while the Trailhawk has a 10-color palette. Both Cherokees are fitted with a 2.4-literTigershark MultiAir engine, paired to a 9-speed automatic transmission, to achieve a fuel efficiency of 13.18km/l.
