An Overland with Summit bumpers, SRT headlights, Summit exhaust tips, black chrome, blacked out... It's the best of 3 different models.

I don't like all the chrome on the Summit. I like the Overland but like the Summit bumper covers better.

That's pretty much why I love the HA! Couldn't have said it better

Nope, I mean the performance shock dampening with the air Suspension system, related to the SRT, I can feel the difference between the 2014 Overland and the New HA, I have the fortunate luck of having a hilly road outside of my neighborhood which is riddled with pot holes from snow plowing last year. the new HA has active dampening shocks, really handles nice.

Re: New: 2015 Grand Cherokee High Altitude Edition

Thanks for the feedback guys, I am swaying toward black or granite HA at this point, with 7k in incentives for the lease I might swap it out for my X5 this year.

Umm...the HA does not have active damping shocks. In fact, looking at part numbers...the air suspension part numbers are the same as with the Overland/Summit. Disappointing as there was hope that they would put some kind of "sportier" shocks. There was never any intent that I'm aware of to put any "active damping" devices on the HA though.

Re: New: 2015 Grand Cherokee High Altitude Edition

Lets be clear here, the HA does not have a special suspension, nor does it have SRT headlights, though they look similar.

They look similar to the SRT headlights which look way better than the regular ones. I can't tell the difference.

you are right about the Suspension. My HA has the same suspension as my 2012 overland. no difference.

Someone looked up the part numbers, and it uses the same suspension components as other Overlands.
