Jeep Rolls Out Two New Special Editions


Jeep has revealed two new special edition models that will publicly debut next week at the L.A. Auto Show.

First is the Grand Cherokee SRT Night, a package that outfits the performance-oriented SUV with plenty of gloss back exterior features including the roof, rear spoiler, front grille bezels along with the B and C pillars. The badges and front are finished with satin black. Velvet red, billet silver and granite crystal are the color choices for the new special edition.

Lightweight five-spoke 20-inch wheels, also finished in satin black, are part of the package, and are designed to show off the SRT’s Brembo brakes. Inside, black leather is used dotted with silver stitching accents.

The running gear on the SUV goes unchanged with the special edition and still uses a 6.4-liter V8 with 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.

2016 Jeep® Wrangler Backcountry

Jeep assembled the Wrangler Backcountry as an ode to winter. It comes with Backcountry decals, unique front and rear powder coated bumpers, 17-inch Rubicon wheels finished in mid-gloss black and a black fuel filler door. Rock rails and a black hard top come as standard equipment on the Backcountry, though side steps and a body-color hardtop are available as options.

Hydro blue, black, bright white and granite crystal are all available colors for the Backcountry, which also gets one exclusive color: Xtreme purple.

Inside, piano black accents, a vinyl-wrapped center console, gray accent stitching, leather seats with black sport mesh and a nine-speaker Alpine stereo system are all included.

    How about rolling out a Grand Cherokee that’s not a piece of crap? That would be good.

    Whenever FCA needs to boost sales they just introduce a special edition model. How many unique Jeep Wranglers have there been over the last few years? More than I can count.
