2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Night Eagle
Another “special edition” trim with piano black accentsby Mark McNabb, on
Jeep is launching a new special edition for the Grand Cherokee. Called the Night Eagle, this trim adds gloss-black trim and some bespoke interior pieces to the European-spec Grand Cherokee. The Night Eagle makes its debut appearance at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
Jeep fans might remember the Night Eagle edition over the last two years. The edition originally launched for the Cherokee and Renegade models. Now with 2017 the Grand Cherokee, along with the Wrangler, get the blacked-out themed package.
Mechanically, the Grand Cherokee remains unchanged. The Euro-spec version comes with two engine choices: the 3.0-liter Multijet II turbodiesel with 250 horsepower and the 286-horsepowe, 3.6-liter Pentastar gasoline V-6. Both engines come standard with the ZF eight-speed automatic transmission Rear-wheel drive is standard, but 4WD is available.
Optional extras can be had on the Night Eagle Jeep, just as on any standard Grand Cherokee. These include Bi-Xenon headlights, a power-operated liftgate, the 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system with Uconnect Live services, the 506-watt Alpine audio system with nine speakers and a subwoofer. Safety options include the Parkview rear backup camera and the Park Sense front and rear sonar sensors.
That doesn’t touch what makes the Night Eagle different, so keep reading for that.
