Re: New: 2015 Grand Cherokee High Altitude Edition
In person, the black chrome is barely noticeable imho. At first, I thought the varying degrees of black, chrome, and black chrome would not look great, but after seeing the vehicle in person I think it comes together nicely.
Honestly, I must have had five drivers of Altitudes giving me the thumbs up thinking I'm in an regular Altitude this week. I highly doubt they noticed the subtle differences between the two trims.
Each to their own. My guess is Jeep didn't want to make an SRT with no nuts so to speak so this was the best way to give buyers of the Summit/Overland something less chromed out.
For me, I find the black gives the truck a little more rugged look. Personally, I don't expect a Jeep to be chromed out in luxury. If I wanted that I'd buy a luxury brand. However, I don't necessarily want to give up some of the luxury features of the car but maintain a sportier / rugged look. This is what the high altitude accomplishes imho.
