Grand Cherokee Goes High Altitude?

by David Zatz on

An Allpar source reported that Jeep is launching a Grand Cherokee “High Altitude,” not to be confused with the current “Altitude.”  It is reportedly based on the Overland, but costs around $2,000 more.  These are currently 2015s only but may carry over to 2016 as well.

The package reportedly includes sport-tuned shock absorbers, 20 inch, gloss-black or chrome wheels, and a new “dark Trivalent Chrome finish” for the fog lamp bezels, lower fascia, grille rings, tail-lamps, and rear fascia appliqué. The Grand Cherokee includes exhaust tips from the Summit with an SRT black finish.

The interior is finished in black Nappa leather with accent stitching, though there may be up to five colors available. An advanced technology group has blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise, brake assist, and rear cross-path detection. Other features include HID headlamps, 8.4 inch navigation, heated front and second row seats, ventilated front seats, and a dual-pane panoramic sunroof. All three engines are available; all come with an eight-speed automatic.

The current Altitude model is priced around $200 below the Limited, and roughly $7,000 above the Laredo E.
