Just What Is An Altitude????

What's the difference between this and my Limited?

I like how the trims are painted on the Altitude, same as Laredo I guess.

A very expensive Laredo. See also Laredo with expensive upgrades.

Mostly a limited minus the backup cam and black accents.

This is an Altitude.

Difference is basically like stated above. Blacked out. Tags are blacked out, matching fenders, suede/leather seats.

Re: Just What Is An Altitude????

So drivetrain and all the "truckness" is all the same?

That sucks about the no reverse camera though, seeing how I tow. I love using it to line up the hitch.

I now see it comes with a sunroof. Too many horror stories about sunroofs on these WK2, I made sure mine didn't have one.

I also see the Altitude is about 2K less on MSRP compared to my optioned Limited...

But man, I would love the matching trim. Bah!

Re: Just What Is An Altitude????

I chose the Limited mainly because of the backup camera and 2nd row heated seats. I also did not want a sunroof due to all the complaints about them, so for me the choice was easy.

Re: Just What Is An Altitude????

The only sunroof complaints I've read about are for the panoramic Pano roof.

I had the regular sunroof on my old 2014 Limited, and never had a problem with it.

Re: Just What Is An Altitude????

I think the Limited has a slightly higher-end 4x4 system, but it's hard to say if you'd ever notice. The Limited also has more available options if you want them. Some can reasonably be added aftermarket, but many can not.

Re: Just What Is An Altitude????

"Altitude" basically reduces down to "marketing". As with any trim level/special edition, one must look carefully at what's included and what's available to determine if it's the right buy for them. The latter part is important...if there is something you want/desire and it's not available from the factory, you have to determine the cost to add it after-the-fact and whether or not you'd be better served by buying a different trim level and making cosmetic changes to please you.

Re: Just What Is An Altitude????

I'm concerned if I purchased an altitude and I go to trade in after a few years it would not book as much as a limited as it's a Laredo with extras. ?

Wouldn't it be better to just lease if you're not panning on keeping it for awhile? I'm asking as well, not stating a fact.
