Isint the Summit the closest looking thing to an SRT?? By the way the interior of the Altitude is what swayed me away. I didn't come here to insult anyone but the "super cool sport racing never get hot seats" are so cheap looking and feeling. That alone is worth the HA admission price. And no one mentions the obvious. If your leasing the residual on the altitude is horrible, Makes the HA an ever smarter buy.

I'm not saying you're wrong but that might not be fully accurate. If look closely, the Summit front fascia resembles the SRT's. I feel like the Summit's rear body kid is a bit reserved and luxurious. Also the Summit has 'spider monkey' [like] rims.

Don't know what the Summit has to do with old people really. Just because it's luxurious maybe? Old folks know how to roll then... I like luxury too. That's why I'm 22 and have a Lexus GS 350 F Sport. Love getting the Lexus serviced, sitting around with the old folks at the dealer waiting area. It's so peaceful lol

That is the only thing I hate about jeep/dodge/Chrysler. The service departments are garbage. Night and day difference with my bmw. Wish they would get it together and also offer a loaner program nationwide none of the dealers around me offer any it's pathetic.

Well...I don't know what the sales demographics are but I kind of doubt they match your perception.

The upper-end trims of any vehicle that stretches into the $40-50K+ range will always show a demographic skew towards older ages. And that has almost zero to do with differences in "taste" or appearance. When it does, that is because the appearance or feature set is targeted towards the demographic most likely to be ABLE to buy it.

I realize this board tends to draw a lot of "privileged" younger people as well as those who are in other age groups. But...one has to remember, despite your purchasing power, that the AVERAGE 20-30 year old is NOT in the market for a $40-50K+ vehicle. Your average 40+ year old is more likely to be in that market, though by no means is the average person.

So when taking note of demographic skews like this it makes sense to realize why that skew may be happening. And to realize that in order to maximize sales any vehicle manufacturer is going to aim styling and features to the demographic most likely to be able to afford said trim level.

This changes somewhat when you are dealing with limited-run specialty trims.

And geez...some of you need to chill out about getting so personally invested one way or the other when it comes to a vehicle's appearance. If it appeals to a large enough segment, it will sell. If not, it won't. But acting like your opinion is some swaying vote is a little overreaching. For every vehicle out there I can find people vehemently opposed to its looks or features...yet many of these sell well. If you don't like it, don't buy it. If you do, buy it. But when it comes to something as subjective as looks you're unlikely to change anyone's mind one way or the other.

These two seats are not the same. The only valid point you're making is that they both have suede. And the leather isn't even the same kind of leather... Where do I think they got the idea of the altitude seats from? Idk I don't really care. The SRT isn't the only vehicle with suede inserts. My buddy has a WK Limited that has suede inserts... Maybe that's where they got the idea? Lol [ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1439426229.098977.jpgATTACH]59265[/ATTACH]

Wow...so no other WK2 has suede inserts except for altitude and srt and u don't know where they got the idea? C'mon, clearly it's a broken down version of it, but they put it on the altitude to give it a little sporty look like the srt...don't be so ignorant

How am I being ignorant? You're being a prick.

I just told you, I don't care where they got the idea from. I'm just telling you, it's not the same seat at all. From the type of leather to the bolster. And when I know of someone that has a 2005 GC Limited with suede seats, it doesn't mean the idea came straight from the SRT line for the Altitude.
