No 2017 High Altitude?

I filled out a new car inquiry on my employers discount site and I got bombarded with emails and phone calls from Jeep reps. One rep returned my email and said the High Altitude will not be an available trim for 2017? Is this true, has anyone confirmed this?

Milous should be able to answer this one.

Re: No 2017 High Altitude?

If you look through the MY17 pricing/features thread up above, you'll note that HA has not been confirmed by Milous. With Trailhawk being added, 75th Anniversary continuing and a lower level Altitude package being available for MY17, they may be avoiding too many choices. While HA was sorta called out as a "trim level", in reality, it was more or less a special edition Overland. And special editions come and go...

So they will have the old or standard Altitude of the past for MY17?

The regular Altitude has already been discontinued so I really doubt they would bring it right back.

Re: No 2017 High Altitude?

Well if there is no My17 Altitude (High or standard) then I guess I'll have to get a '17 Overland and black it out or get the 75th Anniversary and swap out the wheels. Either way I'm waiting to get a MY17 for the Radio upgrade/Android Auto.

Re: No 2017 High Altitude?

I have one and it is way overpriced. I would rather have a Trailhawk.

Re: No 2017 High Altitude?

I love the look of the HA. It's not perfect (chrome window strip, for example), but it's a stepping point for further customization. Wish it was actually based on a Summit than an Overland since that's how it's positioned anyway which is for the asphalt than the trail. Personally, I'm also glad it's not coming back so it truly remains a limited edition piece.

Re: No 2017 High Altitude?

In the first post of the MY17 Pricing and Features thread, there is a bullet that says there will be an "Altitude" package which if things are consistent with previous, will be based on the Laredo.

Re: No 2017 High Altitude?

It's interesting that Jeep would go from the High Altitude back to the Low Altitude after discontinuing it for MY16, but I am glad because I assume there will be some upgrades on the MY17 that us older model folks can cannibalize.

Well maybe not "assume" as much as hope.

If they do bring back the "Low" Altittude I hope it has the Bi-Xenon HID Headlamps.

It's "Altitude" not "low altitude" 😬
