Since its all Show & No Go. In other words, its all about appearance & not performance or substance.
Despite how it looks, it is little more then a Laredo underneath. It lacks many of the features available on the Overland or Summit. Heck, even a Loaded Limited has a better set of features.
But that's just my opinion.
Call me crazy but how a vehicle 'looks' is one of the key factors in my purchasing decision. The Altitudes come in at about $40k which for a similar price Limited the only main feature missing for me would be the transfer case (Unfortunately I am not a big off-roader so the Level 1 system is just fine) I like all the GC lineup, nothing wrong with the Laredo!
I currently don't have the money in my work car budget for the Overland, Summit, and certainly not the SRT. With 15k miles /yr the gas mileage can be an issue so the V6 run plenty strong. Same V6 as the rest of the lineup so as far as the 'go' is concerned, I don't see my Altitude as some sort of poser like you do.
Like you said, it's just my opinion.
