Jeep Wrangler Backcountry & Grand Cherokee SRT Night are Main Stars in L.A.
Jeep is ready for the Los Angeles Auto Show with not one but two unique vehicles. Luckily, they will be both distributed throughout the 2016 model year. Meet the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Night and the 2016 Jeep Wrangler Backcountry! The first one will be available in dealerships starting the first quarter of next year, while the second will appear in showrooms later this month. Let's go to the details.
2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Night
The special Night edition of the SRT Grand Cherokee has this one-off stealth-like stance. It is adorned by some special high-quality features including roof, rear spoiler, front grille bezels, B and C pillars and side window surrounds. And they are all painted in Gloss Black.
Satin Black is the color choice for the front appliqué, badging on the hood and rear liftgate, and the lightweight split five-spoke "5Ten" 20-inch wheels. Behind the latter there are standard Brembo brakes. But if you are looking for a different exterior color for this Jeep, then you can chose among these: Velvet Red, Billet Silver and Granite Crystal.
Inside, the black design theme is continued via the Black Laguna leather upholstery and the Silver accent stitching and Light Black Chrome bezels. Other featured for the special edition Grand Cherokee are optional and they come in exchange for extra money, namely the dual-pane sunroof, a 19-speaker 825-watt Harman Kardon stereo system, trailer tow package, three-season tires, a full-size spare tire and a dual-screen rear entertainment system.
Under the hood, the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Night is powered by the 6.4-liter V-8 engine with Fuel Saver Technology. The unit produces 475 horsepower (350 kW) and 637 Nm (470 lb.-ft.) of torque. The performance is very tough, meaning that the vehicle can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds, from 0 to 100-0 mph in 16.3 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 160 mph.
2016 Jeep Wrangler Backcountry
The Wrangler Backcountry is different kind of machine. With its winter design theme, it is ironically based on the Wrangler Sahara model. The special features here include Backcountry decal on the front fender and rear quarter panel, a unique off-road front and rear powder coated bumper, 17-inch Rubicon wheels painted in Mid-gloss Black and a black fuel fill door.
Wrangler Rubicon rock rails are also standard, in contrast to the Sahara side steps, which are optional. The black hard top could be specified in an optional body color. In general, the Wrangler Backcountry is available in five colors: Hydro Blue, Black, Bright White, Granite Crystal and Xtreme Purple.
The interior of the Sahara-based model is adorned by a dark theme. Precisely, there are Piano Black vent rings, door handles and grab handles, vinyl-wrapped console lid and door armrests with Diesel Gray accent stitching, black McKinley leather seat bolsters with black sport mesh inserts, a nine-speaker premium Alpine sound system and all-weather slush mats. Another cool standard feature in the Wrangler Backcountry is the Bluetooth hands-free Connectivity Group.
I'd like this one for a Christmas present. How about you?
