That's disappointing that they don't have a 75th package for the Overland or Summit.

It has none of the design cues that Milous pointed out for the HA.
Oh my mistake - that trim on video is Australian. Actually the Australian Overland does look diff. thanks US version. Fog lights are black, bottom grill is like US Altitude, side mirrors are not chrome. It's the little things. High Altitude will obviously have blacked out badges and rim I'm assuming.

**Just double-checked my HA info**, it's still not clear if all of the features I mentioned will be on the 2015 HA model, or if some will be new for the 2016 HA. Hope to clarify next week.
Thanks for the infor so far! any idea if the "refreshed" exterior might be seen on the "high altitude" What MSRP are we looking at? above overland or in between altitude and overland?

Not aware of any exterior changes for the 2016 models. Pricing will be above the Overland, and it will include the Advanced Tech Group standard so that will add to the pricing.

Will the advance tech group finally offer front parking sensors on the overland for 2016?

And will the high altitude package be offered in 4x4 overlands?

Front Park Assist only on Summit and SRT. HA package yes on 4x4 Overlands. HA package will also have Summit exhaust tips and gloss black SRT side sills.

Wow if the High Altitude pricing is above Overland them were talking about $10k difference from Altitude to High Altitude.

Thanks for the info.

Any idea when we will get pictures of the HA Overland?

I had a Maxima with the tricoat and loved how it looked on the metal panels and hated how it didn't match with the ABS bumpers....and this is from the factory. It was as if the tricoat took on a warmer ivory hue on the bumpers compared to the panels. To make matters worse, there was a transition ABS piece between the bumper and hood which emphasized the color disparity.

I don't see why they would stop the altitude and just offer the high altitude. Seems like two different target buyers with the new price gap.

Black interior looks good until you notice the bronze from pieces. I have a white Summit with the Jeep brown interior and the bronze pieces look great.

It's possible that the Altitude will return, just haven't seen any confirmation of it yet.
