The third model in Jeep’s new Altitude series is based on the Patriot. Like the other two models - Compass Altitude and Grand Cherokee Altitude, the new Patriot Altitude will go on sale this May and it will be priced from $20,240 for 4x2 models and $23,275 for 4x4 models.

The new Patriot Altitude continues the same black theme of the other two models, but features more chrome and polished steel used for the lower fascia and rear step pad appliques, and the roof rails. The car rides on 17" high-gloss black aluminum wheels wrapped in Firestone BSW all-season touring tires.

The list of standard equipments includes: power heated exterior mirrors and heated seats, power windows (driver one-touch) and locks, continuously variable automatic transaxle, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, and includes numerous safety and security features, such as electronic stability control, electronic roll mitigation, Hill-start Assist (with manual transmission), and side-curtain air bags that cover all rows.

really hate news that has only few details on the car. And this one is doesn’t have many features.

I wonder if the interior is the opposite of the exterior? The exterior looks like a really bad but I hope when you go in the inside, you will find peacefulness.

An all black SUV. Really cool. I want to see the interior design of this car.

Very nice! But I love to see this SUV wearing a bigger set of wheels so it matches the size of the vehicle.

I don’t see it as a muscle car, but its totality is different. It’s multi-purpose and sporty.

The more it gets older; the further models are presented trough out the year. This Patriot Altitude as we all know comes from its predecessors, but on different line-ups. The altitude in line with Patriot is one of the best Jeeps I’ve seen. Looking at its frontal fascia, it completes the wholeness of the exterior, especially it’s covered with polished steel.

It’s not that affordable, but really makes a good investment.

I’m not even surprised as to why this is popular. It’s durability is amazing.

A few of its features seem to be misfits. Anyhow, the technical specifications appear to be very convincing.

Obviously, if all the impressive components are installed, not everyone who wants it can be able to buy it. They can have them installed at a later time.

The notion of its packaging is only appropriate. I’m pretty sure not everyone can buy the optional features.

  (530) posted on 04.27.2012

I guess it’s only ideal for those features to be optional, because not all can afford its price.

This is why plenty of people consume Jeep. It is reliable, and its price is affordable.

To me, its wide fascia doesn’t fit its figure. Since it is Jeep, it appears to be a mix of a muscle and sports vehicle.

I’m not surprised about its affordable price. Jeep wants this to sell much, and the options are ideal because if they’re to be bundled, it would raise up the money value.

What’s the 2x4 option for? I’m pretty sure most consumers will choose 4x4 anyway.

I don’t like its exterior, but it is affordable. I’d choose the 4W option since the prices don’t really have much of a difference.
