SEMA, Detroit, Baja, Moab -- there’s no bad time or place to introduce a special-edition Jeep. In fact, FCA has two of them coming to the L.A. Auto Show: The Grand Cherokee SRT Night, which gets the de rigueur black appearance package, and the Wrangler Backcountry, which gets enough off-road bits to crush everything winter has to offer.
The SRT Night is equipped with black gloss paint on the roof, rear spoiler, front grille bezels, B- and C-pillars and side window surround. The front appliqué and badges are in satin black.
Lightweight split five-spoke 5Ten 20-inch wheels are also in black, while the Brembo calipers remain standard red. Exterior color choices include velvet red, billet silver and granite crystal.
The Grand Cherokee Night gets the normal SRT treatment with a 6.4-liter V-8 engine with 475 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. Adjustable dampers and adjustable drive modes are also standard. A dual-pane sunroof, premium audio system, tow package, three-season tires and a full-size spare are optional.
