WranglerJeep Introduces New Limited-edition Wrangler Unlimited Altitude
Posted by mike on 2012/4/24 16:16:08 (25039) reads

On the heels of the popular Jeep® Wrangler Call of Duty: MW3 and Arctic models – and in response to Wrangler enthusiasts' continued desire for limited-edition vehicles – Jeep is introducing its new, 2012 Wrangler Unlimited Altitude edition. The Wrangler Unlimited Altitude is the latest Altitude model in the Jeep lineup, following the introduction of the Grand Cherokee, Compass and Patriot Altitude models last month.

Based on the 2012 Wrangler Unlimited Sahara model, the Altitude edition offers Jeep enthusiasts a Wrangler with a unique appearance that includes a body-color hardtop combined with a variety of black-gloss exterior appointments, and a distinctive black-and-red interior theme.

"With sales up more than 30 percent year over year, Jeep Wrangler continues to show the special place it has in the hearts and minds of the American public," said Mike Manley, President and CEO – Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. "One of the many things Jeep enthusiasts love is the series of limited-volume, special-edition Wrangler models we produce. The new Wrangler Unlimited Altitude builds on the previous models and delivers consumers yet another fun and distinctive Jeep vehicle straight from the factory.

"With a production run of only 4,500 units, we expect the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Altitude to sell out very quickly," Manley added.

Jeep Wrangler sales were up 43 percent in March 2012 versus March 2011, and are up 30 percent for the year (through March). The new 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Altitude edition arrives in Jeep showrooms next month.

The new Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Altitude edition includes a body-color hardtop with matching painted center sections on the front and rear bumpers. Unique eighteen-inch, five-spoke alloy wheels with black-painted spokes and polished wheel rings combine to give the Altitude model a one-of-a-kind appearance.

Wrangler Unlimited Altitude's exterior appointments are completed with the inclusion of a Mopar® black fuel fill door, a matte black "Jeep" grille badge and a black tone-on-tone hood graphic.

A black-and-red theme is found inside the new Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Altitude. Specifically, red accent stitching adorns black leather seats, door panels, center arm rest, floor mats and steering wheel. Vent rings, steering-wheel spokes, door pulls and passenger-side dashboard grab handle and berber floor mats all appear in black, to provide the contrasting and one-of-a-kind interior.

Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Altitude models are available in Deep Cherry Red, Black, Bright White and Bright Silver Metallic, and will be available at a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $33,740.

Like small changes, but to have this Wrangler is much nicer. Not just because of the thought that you became one of the special (actually this was already having Wrangler :)). It looks better, light touch, because of which the preference may change dramatically.

 More silly sales tactics - no sense for the real world
Obviously Manley and Sergio live in another league where fuel prices are irrelevant and MPG should be exceeded by the number of 'special exitions' and models.
Seriously how long have US jeepers been begging for diesel Wrangler? I know I started in 2005.
I cannot believe how long we Americans have had to wait. It looks like Fiat is just as lousy at listening to what US jeepers want as Cerebus, and Mercedes.
Imagine how many more Wranglers they would sell if it got 28-32 mpg?

Interesting to hear how much fuel costs in US. Here in UK I drive a CRD Unlimited Wrangler. At present diesel is £1.50/litre. This equates to about $9.25/US Gallon. The diesel is a superb engine and much better off road that my old straight six four litre in my previous Wrangler. However at about 27 miles per gallon it certainly isnt cheap to run. You guys may think that your fuel is expensive but you should try living here. Almost all of the price of fuel goes to the Government in the form of tax. Happy Jeeping

The photo looks good - I'd like to see some interior shots.

Hey, how about a limited edition plug-in hybrid Jeep? ...or an electric Jeep? I mean, something that's really unique; more than just a sticker package.

OK, you KNOW I have to say this... Where's our CRD DIESEL Jeep? Better still, a CRD diesel hybrid Jeep. Here in Chicago, gas was up to $4.55 earlier this month.
