Altitude is a Limited Edition JGC, but just how "limited?

I searched but could not find an answer to just how many "Altitude" Editions JGCs are made each year. Jeep's website says they are limited editions

Thanks

Re: Altitude is a Limited Edition JGC, but just how "limited?

I think that the meaning of being a "limited edition" is that they could choose to stop selling that package (which is more or less what it is) at any time. It seems to be popular right now with folks who are happy with the limited feature set it offers (with extremely limited option availability), so I would expect it to continued to be available for some time. It's pretty much a Laredo with "popular options" already configured plus some visual differences. Packages like that are economical to produce and easy to market.

Re: Altitude is a Limited Edition JGC, but just how "limited?

A type of package like the Altitude is produced for a short amount of time. Typically it runs until a tool change happens or a redesign. Most cases are about 1-2 years. You can find the Altitude model from the past couple years as well but there are definite appearance differences.

I am a sucker for appearance packages. I had a 2004 Jeep Liberty "Columbia Edition". It came with my choice of a Columbia winter jacket which I ordered and received a few weeks after the purchase. Yea, sucka!

Re: Altitude is a Limited Edition JGC, but just how "limited?

I know what you mean. I had just got finished test driving a 2012 Overland when I spotted the Altitude drive in and through the lot, same color as the one I bought.

It was "game-over" moment, LOL

I am still interested in finding out how many would be produced, in each color, for 2015.

I don't believe that is a defined number pre-production.

Re: Altitude is a Limited Edition JGC, but just how "limited?

I always thought my 2014 GC 'Limited' was special since it's 'Limited', but then again the Wrangler 'Unlimited' is pretty darn cool tool!

Re: Altitude is a Limited Edition JGC, but just how "limited?

"Limited" for a long time was always the "top" trim level on many vehicles, but what I'll call "marketing creep" has brought along new pretty words to describe top-tier versions these days with the "Limited" label slinking into a different roll: making a more fully optioned base vehicle a more attractive step-up. It's pretty effective marketing as it appears.

But there is "Limited" and "limited edition"...the latter of which is what the OP was wondering about. Yet another marketing tool that motivates folks to buy! Altitude, Trailhawk, etc., all come to mind...

First dealer wanted full MSRP for this "limited edition" vehicle... I laughed all the way to another dealer.
