NO MORE Altitudes or TrailHawks for 2014!

Talked to the local dealer owner Thursday 11/9, just back from a Jeep product meeting, and he said there will be no more Altitudes or TrailHawks for 2014. They have 2 (gray and white V8) on the lot but 2013 order banks are closed (or closing very soon). 2014 order banks open in February. No further word on 3 row Grand Wagoneer either.

Re: NO MORE Altitudes or TrailHawks for 2014!

Milous confirmed that there will be special edition models for MY14 as well. I have no idea if they will be Altitudes and/or Trailhawks - but special edition models will still be out.

Keep in mind that the dealer might not have told you that because he has still some of them on "his" lot for MY13...

Re: NO MORE Altitudes or TrailHawks for 2014!

He has sold a good number of Altitudes, and only has 2 on the lot compared to 75 or so other GCs available, so doubt he's telling "porkies" as the Brits say.

Re: NO MORE Altitudes or TrailHawks for 2014!

Order banks are tentatively opening on Dec 5th according to Milous. He hasn't said any different as of yet. I'd trust the information the Milous says compared to a dealer as he wants to sell what he has in stock before anything. Just my 2 cents

Re: NO MORE Altitudes or TrailHawks for 2014!

Special Editions are a Jeep thing, for sure. They seem to sell well, so as long as the Special Editions are as "cool" as they have been, I would imagine that they will continue.

2013 will not be the last model year for the Trailhawk... besides the GC, you may also see versions for the Wrangler (The upcoming 2014 Cherokee (new Liberty) Trailhawk edition will have a 51:1 crawl ratio).

As posted on my 2014 thread earlier this year, and recently re-affirmed by Pat, 2014 order banks are scheduled to open on 12/05 (CRD models may be Jan/Feb).

Per Pat's post order banks for 2013 close on the 15th (SRT banks closed on 10/30, and selected trim levels for other models are already closed).

Grand Wagoneer is still over a year away from production.

So it is called the Cherokee? I had heard about the TrailHawk edition having the crazy crawl ratio but at the time of the dealer show in Vegas no official name was given.

It's going to be an awesome year for Jeep!

Would make sense. It's already called the Cherokee in the export market because of the Subaru Liberty.

Re: NO MORE Altitudes or TrailHawks for 2014!

I'm assuming any new special editions can be ordered with any engine, as is the current case. Any word on how the CRD engine is going to be priced? I'm attempting to plan my purchase. ; )

"Cherokee" is what I have been told... BUT, as has happened in the past, a vehicle name can be changed at the last minute. It's *possible* they could continue the Liberty name domestically.

No idea on CRD pricing, very anxious to find out what they are planning to do in that regard.
