Re: New: 2015 Grand Cherokee High Altitude Edition

Just curious - why is it built on Overland model - yet has almost everything that the Summit does? Is it because some of the Summit things are optional? (such as the HK radio)

What dealership has 19? I called Ziegler in downers grove and they said they only had one on the way...

I'm guessing to keep price down a little. It doesn't have the better leather and headliner like the summit.

Yes it is built off the Overland. It technically does not have everything the Summit has. Yes it uses the Summit exterior bumpers and fender flares, but besides that and front park sensors that's sort of it I guess. And the only reason it has front park sensors is because they used the Summit front bumper I would imagine. Transfer cases might be different not sure, no AFS headlights, no suede headliner like Summit or SRT, HK audio optional. Not a ton of stuff, but the usual differences between the Overland and Summit.

Where I bought my Summit from which is Tyson Motors in Shorewood. They claim to be one of the highest volume dealers in the Chicago area. I believe it based off the really good deals they gave me on both new vehicles I purchased from them ('12 Overland, '14 Summit) and the amount of vehicles they get compared to other dealers.

If you stop in to that dealer and it's not too much trouble it would be really great to see some high quality pics of a Brilliant Black HA.

That, sir, would be awesome!!

A couple dealerships around here have granite HA's enroute. I'm 95% sure I want a white one, though. I absolutely love granite (my '14 Overland is granite) but with all the black on the HA I'm questioning how it will look.

Couldn't tell if this was a sarcastic comment or not lol. If not, you do know that the SRT, and the Altitude have the same window trim? It's no different. Just look at those models, the chrome window trim looks fine.

I see why you didn't catch the sarcasm . I agree, no diff.... Silly to murder out 99% and leave the window trim chrome, silly . I was just beating on how the mentioned black HA with all its black and dk trivalent chrome trim will look with those nice bright chrome window rings.

Re: New: 2015 Grand Cherokee High Altitude Edition

Ok, I went and saw a HA at the local dealership yesterday, here are my thoughts:

When the HA was first announced, I was aggravated. (because I had just ordered a '15 Altitude) I loved almost everything about the 14-15 Altitudes, especially when they got rid of the rose gold interior for the silver trim. I really wanted three things the Altitude didn't have though; the hemi, the hid headlights, and a 4wd system with a low range. The HA seemed to address all these issues. Then more details came out, including the fact it had the air suspension, something I didn't want.

Fast forward to yesterday, when I saw the HA in person. Any regrets about my Altitude are now gone. I am not a huge fan of the Summit bumpers, it has a good bit of standard equipment I wouldn't want, but the worst part is that new black chrome finish. I understand they had to do something about the chrome strips usually found on the Summit, but add yet another finish? It looks especially bad on the back of the GC, where go from black chrome on the bottom bumper, to the gloss black on the upper bumper surround, back to the black chrome on the tail lights. Oh yea, plus all the badges are gloss black. It just seems very piece meal. As an added bonus, that black chrome shows water spots more than any other trim time I have seen; it looked awful on the lot and it was just washed. (For comparison, none of the other GCs on the lot which were washed at the same time showed water spots on trim)

Overall, its not awful, but its not what I was originally hoping for; an Altitude I could get a hemi and better 4wd with. I will say though, seeing it parked next to my Altitude convinced me to switch to the black honeycomb upper grills....

Re: New: 2015 Grand Cherokee High Altitude Edition

As much as I like the altitude, seeing it next to the HA makes me like the HA that much more. Just has more presence. I love the summit bumpers, black chrome and all.

Re: New: 2015 Grand Cherokee High Altitude Edition

I like the Altitude but I like the HA way more because the Altitude is very under equipped for my taste.
