Jeep has announced a series of three limited edition Altitude models, the second of them being based on the new Compass . The new Altitude series is the result of an old "Name My Ride " contest announced by the company back in January 2012. Due to the contest’s positive reaction - over 2 million Facebook fans - the company decided to create three special editions wearing the winning name: Altitude.
The new Compass Altitude will feature a distinctive black gloss finish for the seven-slot Jeep grille and headlamps, black roof rails, a black step pad and a set of exclusive 18-inch black gloss aluminum wheels wearing Firestone BSW all-season performance tires.
As standard equipment, customers will get power heated exterior mirrors and heated seats, remote start, continuously variable automatic transaxle, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls. The list of safety system will include elements like electronic stability control, electronic roll mitigation, Hill-start Assist (with manual transmission), and side-curtain air bags that cover all rows.
The new Jeep Compass Altitude will arrive at Jeep dealerships in May 2012 and will be priced from $22,190 for 4x2 models and $23,940 for 4x4 models.
