Jeep’s Blackhawk treatment has made a comeback for the 2019 Jeep Cherokee and Jeep Grand Cherokee model range, in the form of the special edition Night Eagle.
Based on the Cherokee Longitude and Grand Cherokee Laredo – the base AWD variants of both line-ups – the Night Eagle package brings black styling elements to both models, with the Grand Cherokee receiving additional black interior treatment.
The Grand Cherokee Night Eagle gets the black treatment on its 20-inch wheels, grille surround, fog-light and tail-light bezels, roof mouldings and badging. Deep tint privacy glass is also used. The Night Eagle package adds all-black leather seat upholstery on the inside, with perforated suede inserts and black accent stitching.
The Grand Cherokee also gets the 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as a sunroof as standard, and it can be specified with either the 3.6-litre V6 petrol or 3.0-litre V6 diesel.
The Cherokee Night Eagle receives similar exterior treatment with 18-inch wheels, a gloss-black Jeep grille surround and lower front fascia insert, along with black roof rails and badging. On the inside it gets piano-black trim pieces for the steering wheel bezel, climate control panel and door applique. The Cherokee comes equipped with the “Longitude Technology Package” that features adaptive cruise control with stop and parallel perpendicular park assist.

“Based off the most affordable AWD variants of both nameplates, the Night Eagle special editions provide not only a stunning and trendy look but also a very high content value to the customer,” said Guillaume Drelon, director of brand and product strategy for Jeep Australia.
