Jeep Blackhawk Edition models launched

Jeep has gone black with its line-up offering Blackhawk Editions of Compass, Patriot, Wrangler Overland and Grand Cherokee Laredo 4×4.

“Street appeal is a consideration for many Jeep buyers,” says Fiat Chrysler Australia President and CEO Ms Veronica Johns. “Inclusions in the Blackhawk Edition models provide – in one value-packed comprehensive package – the items many customers search for when customising their vehicles.”

The Jeep Compass and Patriot Blackhawk gets a black, gloss-finish surround for its seven-slot Jeep grille as well as gloss black side roof rails and a body colour rear bumper with step pad. It rides on exclusive 17-inch black painted aluminum wheels. The Jeep Compass Blackhawk model is available in 4X2 configuration with a 2.0-litre petrol engine, heated seats, Uconnect Voice Command with Bluetooth and leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls.
