Following on the heels of the Grand Cherokee
, Patriot and Compass Altitude editions, Jeep is launching a factory-customized Wrangler Unlimited Altitude edition, expected to hit dealer showrooms in May.
Starting with a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara, the Altitude edition gets a body-colored hardtop, gloss black exterior details and a black and red themed interior. Only 4,500 will be built, so the Wrangler Unlimited Altitude isn’t likely to languish on dealer lots.
While the package doesn’t include engine upgrades, the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 works just fine in stock form, and there’s no shortage of Mopar parts
available to boost performance if the Wrangler's
285 horsepower isn’t enough for you.
Outside, Wrangler Unlimited Altitude models are available in Deep Cherry Red, Black, Bright White and Bright Silver Metallic, and all get a black fuel filler door (courtesy of the Mopar parts catalog), a matte black Jeep grille badge, and a black tone-on-tone hood graphic.
Unique 18-inch wheels, featuring black painted spokes and a polished lip, complete the Altitude’s exterior styling.
Inside black leather seats get red accent stitching, as do the black door panels, center arm rest, floor mats and steering wheel cover. Black is also used on the steering wheel spokes, door pulls, passenger grab handle and vent rings.
Look for the 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Altitude Edition to carry a sticker price of $33,740, or $34,640 with the $900 destination fee factored in.
