Fiat Chrysler UK has unveiled the new Jeep Renegade Night Eagle, a limited-edition version of the compact crossover that gives it a stealthy, blacked-out look.
The debut of the Renegade Night Eagle follows that of the similar larger Cherokee Night Eagle that launched in the UK last November. Like the Cherokee variant, the Renegade Night Eagle is based on the Longtiude trim-level but features 17-inch black alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, satin grey Jeep badges and a ‘Night Eagle’ badge, colored roof bars and side mirrors and a satin grey grille.
Inside, the Renegade Night Eagle is further set apart from standard Renegades thanks to bark brown upholster and a leather wrapped steering wheel. Also standard is dual zone climate control, a DAB UConnect radio with a 5-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth and satnav, and cruise control. Options include an electric panoramic sunroof, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.
The same range of MultiJetII diesel engines available in the standard Renegade are featured in the Renegade Night Eagle. These include a 120 horsepower 1.6-liter unit available with two-wheel drive or a 2.0-liter 140 horsepower unit which is available only in conjunction with four-wheel drive.
Plans to continue the success of the remarkable Jeep Renegade are announced today with details of a new limited edition Renegade ‘Night Eagle’ version. Jeep claims both engines will result in fuel economy returns of up to 55.4 MPG US on the combined cycle.
Just 350 Jeep Renegade Night Eagle will be produced. Of those, just 160 will be painted in the unique Volcano Sand matt-black paint finish pictured here, with the rest being finished in either Carbon Black or Alpine White. Prices start at £21,595 for the 1.6-liter 2WD model and £24,095 for the 1.4-liter 4WD variant.
