Grand Cherokee High Altitude revealed

by David Zatz on

This is the Jeep Grand Cherokee High Altitude, a recently created trimline based on the Overland and Altitude.

Jeep Grand Cherokee High Altitude

CDJSalesPro first pointed them out to Allpar in early July. It costs around $2,000 more than the high-end Overland model (it doesn’t have some Overland features), and comes for the 2015 model year. We do not yet know what is in store for the 2016s.

The vehicles comes with a new dark trivalent chrome finish (trivalent chrome is a manufacturing technique) on the fog lamp bezel, lower fascia, grille rings, tail lamps, and rear fascia. CDJSalesPro wrote that the trivalent chrome process gives the “chrome” a copper or gold tinge.

It has exhaust tips from the Summit and black paint from the SRT. Wheels are 20-inch types in gloss black. There are five paint colors available. The black stripes on the rear in the photo are shipping tape and not part of the car.

Inside, buyers get black Nappa leather with accent stitching, blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise, advanced brake assistance, rear cross-path detection (if you are backing up and a person or car is passing, an alert sounds), large 8.4 inch touch-screen stereo, heated front and rear seats, ventilated front seats, and a dual-pane panoramic sunroof.

The High Altitude comes with sportier suspension tuning and a choice of any Grand Cherokee engine — gasoline or diesel V6 or gasoline V8.  All Grand Cherokees have standard eight-speed automatics.
