I didn't mean to imply that was their thinking, just that they wanted a more glitzy version of the Altitude to invoke prestige in a way that GMC does with the Denali (of course Denali does it with all chrome...to the extreme IMO...while the HA is obviously black chrome)

Re: New: 2015 Grand Cherokee High Altitude Edition

After letting the design soak in for a couple days I seem to be on the fence with the HA. I can't conclude weather it's overdone/gimmicky and I prefer the Summit or if I think it's design is tastefully done. Decisions...decisions...

Re: New: 2015 Grand Cherokee High Altitude Edition

I think the HA looks good only thing id change is those wheels, a matching black chrome summit or black chrome spider monkey style would have looked a lot better in my opinion. the ones they got on it now remind me of a black steel wheel from the 70s missing a hubcap. Wheels are an easy change though if someone wants to spend the money.

I agree. If they had done the wheels and window chrome in trivalent black chrome... Oooooo!

Re: New: 2015 Grand Cherokee High Altitude Edition

I don't think it's the wheels alone, that front bumper looks terrible and out of place. Not sure if it's because of the blacked out srt lights without the black srt grill to match or if it's the chrome trim at the bottom just looking like a catfish or something. Whatever it is it just looks off. And the wheel choice doesn't help it. Like someone else said spider monkeys would have been awesome or even the Goliaths

Re: New: 2015 Grand Cherokee High Altitude Edition

I looked at the Summit before I drove the HA. Then two old guys pulled up in their chromed out summits and went in the dealer... The HA was an easy decision, especially coming from a 2012.

Re: New: 2015 Grand Cherokee High Altitude Edition

Are there any GC owners under 46? I was kind of thinking of it as my Chrysler ...
