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.
