Factory order 2014 GC Altitude

Called my local dealer this week and looks like I'm able to start speccing out a new 2014 GC Altitude. The appearance package looks awesome, but I'm really disappointed with the available options, which, according to my dealer, only include single disc remote CD player, engine block heater and trailer tow group. Considering the new Altitude doesn't come with premium sound, HID lights or backup camera (despite early press releases), I'm really bummed. I feel like the 2012 Altitude had way more options. Anyone else considering the new Altitude? Thoughts on the lack of features?

Re: Factory order 2014 GC Altitude

I have been waiting for the Altitude option to become available in the ordering system so after I saw your post I sent my sales rep an email.

Although im disappointed with the lack of options it won't keep me from placing my order. Overall im happy with the available options and looks from the pictures I've seen. Backup camera can always be added and fancy lights are nice but not necessary.

That's really disappointing. You're better off buying a brilliant black laredo/limited/whatever, powdercoating your rims, and making whatever other appearance modifications you like. You're paying close to Limited prices for a Laredo-level vehicle.

Re: Factory order 2014 GC Altitude

Compared to the 12-13 Altitude looks wise the 14's is just as cool. Feature compared it's lacking. I would buy a limited the way I wanted it and then buy Altitude parts as the become available. By the way the 14' Alt looks, it will be enough to make the changes without getting into too much extra expense. However, adding features to make it close to a limited is what will get costly.

They could have done so much with this Altitude and made some options available.

Anyway, I hope you order your Jeep and enjoy it to the fullest!!!!

Re: Factory order 2014 GC Altitude

To me it's simple.

If you want the features of a Limited just buy a Limited.
You'll pay more for it and then pay to modify it to look like something it's not.

If you want a Laredo with an appearance package that you could modify fairly inexpensively to have a few more features then get an Altitude.

Either way you'll have a great looking WK2.

So what exactly does the Limited have that the Altitude doesn't? I can not think of anything other than a power passenger seat.

Re: Factory order 2014 GC Altitude

Im willing to bet it has the backup camera, just not listed or was skipped in mentioning.

Its hard to believe they'd sell an SUV for 2015 MY with no back up cam when its soon to be federally mandated.

Yup, max steel. 2012 Laredo x. Picked it up before the altitudes came out. Probably would of saved me some de-chroming.
