Yep, not sure what is going exactly. I see a deep cherry red summit at work everyday and this altitude I was talking about is not that color, much darker and to me it is a velvet red. I have looked at about 10-15 HA 2016 velvet red's and this Altitude I keep seeing has the same exact color. It's not a HA because it has the painted plastic plastic around the wheel wells.

I guess if could be 2016 velvet red overland that he converted into a Altitude? It has all the black badging/accents and trim pieces along with the black wheels. I'll take some pics next time I see it and post em.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I know this has probably been asked here but I can't seem to find it. Any one have a time frame for incentives on 2017 Grand Cherokees. Walked into the dealer today in Bay Ridge Brooklyn just curious and they wanted $45,500 for Trailhawk with just Nav. I told them isn't the invoice price like 41,500 he argued no 43,500 so I just walked out.

The Platinum/Cali pkg needs to be standard. The Summits look so much better with the body colors mirrors and door handles.

But if they made it standard they would lose $1,000 from everyone that agrees with you and is willing to pay. We all have our priorities. I didn't think the Platinum Pkg was worth the money. But, I was willing to spend for the Ski Grey interior. Go Figure.

Question on color

Jeep calls the new interior color Ski Grey.

Is there a Ski Grey, or did somebody at Jeep misspell SKY, and nobody picked it up until it was too late?

There is a current $750 incentive/rebate through I believe October 3.

Gotta tell you, I never liked the wooden steering wheels. Whenever I saw them on a MB I always thought that was going too far, bling wise. Much to my surprise they are truly functional, improving grip (which I would've thought the opposite), and really sweet with the heated wheel in the winter. A leather wheel doesn't come close.

I never cared for the wood on the wheel. I prefer the all leather on my HA. It gets just as toasty in the winter.
