Yes of course. Obviously I wouldn’t know, but given the GC’s strong annual sales (184,000 last year), the popularity of the Altitude model (popular enough to keep offering it), and the likelihood that only a minority of GC owners venture off road in any serious way (I assume), this seems like a viable package. And again, with only off-the-shelf parts, low risk for Jeep.

Looks like the High Altitude is your answer. It has a sport suspension even.

Are you
A, referring to the Compass
B, referring to the current GC Altitude, or
C, referring to some new version of the GC Altitude?

Yes, but didn't see this High Altitude post.

It is interesting, but it's based on the Overland and so it'll be mid-$50s with the HA package, the 5.7, and a couple of other minor items.

My suggestion was an "SRT Sport Package" option for the Limited - not a separate GC model. The Overland is loaded with things I don't want or need.

But I guess this idea sounds less practical with this new HA model. Oh well.

Re: Wanted: New performance package for Grand Cherokee:

One potential conflict with an "SRT Sport Package" (at least for the name) is that SRT will only be on Dodge vehicles going forward and that's where any "performance" focused vehicles will live. The one exception, due to it being so popular, is that the SRT JGC will live on, but be renamed (at least as of current information) "Track Hawk", if my memory serves...
