Jeep has revealed blacked-out special edition versions of its best-selling SUVs, adding limited-run Night Eagle trim to its Cherokee and Grand Cherokee ranges.

Based on the Laredo, the Grand Cherokee Night Eagle rides on a set of 20-inch black alloy wheels, which match the blacked-out grille, body-coloured bumper trims, tinted glass and black Jeep badging.

Inside, there's black leather seats with perforated suede inserts, and an 8.4-inch infotainment system. A single-pane sunroof is also part of the package.

It's priced from $58,450 before on-road costs with the 3.6-litre petrol V6 and $63,450 before on-roads with a 3.0-litre EcoDiesel engine, or $5500 more than the Laredo on which it's based. Jeep says there's an extra $10,400 of value on board, though.

Jumping from the Longitude to the Cherokee Night Eagle gets you 18-inch black alloy wheels, along with styling add-ons in keeping with its bigger brother. That means a blacked-out grille and body-coloured bumper inserts, black badging and gloss (you guessed it) black roof rails.

Inside, the steering wheel and air-conditioning bezels have been finished in gloss black, while the Longitude Technology Package is standard fit, bringing with it adaptive cruise control, side distance warning and hands-free parking.

An 8.4-inch infotainment system is standard, complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring. Power comes from a 3.2-litre petrol V6 engine powering all four wheels.

It's priced at $45,150 before on-road costs, $3200 more than the Longitude. As with the Grand Cherokee, Jeep claims the extra spend is offset by all the extra gear, worth $6400 in this case.
