The Jeep Wrangler Night Edition is the latest special edition Night Eagle model from Jeep, with extra equipment and cosmetic titivation.
Last year, the Jeep Renegade Night Eagle to drag punters in to Jeep’s showrooms in the UK, which we must assume was a success as they’ve now delivered a new Night eagle model for the UK – the Jeep Wrangler Night Eagle.
That said, the Night eagle Wrangler isn’t going to set Jeep’s sales on fire, as the UK is getting just 66 examples.
The lucky 66 will get a Wrangler with extra equipment and cosmetic titivations – including unique Xtreme Purple, Alpine White or Solid Black paint – to tempt buyers who want to make a bit of a statement.
Powered by the 2,8 litre CRD engine with 197bhp, and mated to a five-speed auto (yep, 5 speed), the Jeep can get to 62 mph on 10,7 seconds and has official economy of 31.4 mpg. Which is probably 24mpg in the real world.
Night Eagle comes with Command-Trac part time, two-speed transfer box and a low-range gear ratio. So it should do mud-plugging.
As well as the special paint jobs, the Night Eagle also gets decals, 18″ gloss black alloys, body colour grille, gloss black accents, headlamps and Jeep badge, hard spare tyre cover and tinted glass.
Interior titivations include leather seats with black sport mesh inserts, vinyl-wrapped console, Piano Black grab handles, all-weather slush mats, nine-speaker Alpine sound, Uconnect Sat Nav and 6.5″ touchscreen.
The new Jeep Wrangler Night Eagle is now on sale at Jeep’s UK dealers priced from £39,810
