Stealthy new 2016 Grand Cherokee Edition by SRT will debut at LA Auto Show

The 2016 LA Auto Show is almost here and Jeep plans to show up with a couple special-edition utility vehicles including the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Night and the 2016 Wrangler Backcountry.

Cherokee SRT Night Edition

When the engineers and designers at SRT transform regular rides into mind-blowing performance and ultra-premium machines, including the Grand Cherokee SUV, it’s one thing. But when they unveil a special edition version of an already modified beast, it’s quite another. The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Night blends ultimate performance with a premium black appearance that includes a unique black roof and lightweight performance wheels; a stealth-like appearance with the roof, rear spoiler, front grille bezels, B and C pillars and side window surrounds all adorned in Gloss Black.
