Don't forget active noise cancellation and the addition of 4 windows with acoustic glass.

Re: No 2017 High Altitude?

I thought the HA had acoustic glass? I saw on my build sheet.

It should have an acoustic windshield but I believe it does not have acoustic glass on the 4 doors like the Summit does.

Okay, this got me curious so I dug up my build sheet. Mine specifically states:

"Acoustic Laminated Front Door Glass"

So I guess it's just equipped with acoustic front door glass, but no acoustic windshield and no acoustic rear glass.

Re: No 2017 High Altitude?

The big reason I'm glad the HA was based on the Overland and not the Summit is the tighter tuned air suspension. I need to test drive a Summit again but the floaty air suspension is the only reason I would not get a Summit.

Someone Please Answer...
If a MY17 Trailhawk is ordered with all available options (i.e. Safety & Luxury Group), what would be missing when compared to the HA?
1. 18" wheels.
2. No headlight washers?

The look of a summit is also missing. The HA although based off the overland had the exterior look of the summit. The plastic around wheel wells is the biggest turn off for me. I may go the 2017 Summit route if no HA this year. Or a 2016 HA if any are left when CarPlay comes out and can be confirmed that it could be installed in a 2016 model.

You're going to get the plastic around the wheel wells regardless of going with a 17 Summit or 16 HA.

Personally, I think it looks a lot better on the HA than the standard Overland plastic does... and the HA looks a lot better in general than the Summit.

Interesting that the moulded and painted flares of the SRT/Summit/HA are a turn off for you. One would think that those are a benefit over the clunkier looking plastic trim pieces from the Overland/Limited/Laredo. Obviously everybody has their opinions, but I feel the Summit/HA are for sure the sleeker and cleaner looking of the bunch. I also LOVE how the hitch has a cover as nothing is more of an eye sore than an exposed trailer hitch.

No that's what I was saying, those look better than the chunky outward facing plastic on the limited, Laredo and over lands

Re: No 2017 High Altitude?

That's what I thought he said, he wanted the look of the Summit/HA painted flares. Then I got confused. :X
