Thanks in advance.
I have just over 5K on my 14' Altitude since purchased this past April. The vehicle is amazing and the trim level was exactly my style (minus not having the ParkView backup camera). Make sure you choose the vehicle trim based on your very own needs/wants. There are many configurable options with the JGC and even then you typically can find one configured to your liking on the dealer lot.
My off road experience has been in some sand (tires aired down) and also a bumpy/muddy area behind my home where they have torn down the trees in lieu of new home construction. It drove flawlessly. One thing to keep in mind is how much off road you plan to do and what type of terrain it will be. Some of the upper trim packages include the more advanced off road capability (4-Lo) and features.
Like mentioned above, the Rear ParkView camera can be obtained now on late 14' MY Altitudes and it comes with the 9 speaker premium upgrade as well. I believe this adds about $890 or more to the previous cost of the Altitude. I have a couple dealers around me that have the vehicle on the lot. The sticker price will show $39,475 which is how I searched online at my local dealers. Package 23Z should be in the description to ensure it's a Altitude package.
Good luck with your hunt for your new Jeep. Regardless of your decision you will be extremely happy.
