Jeep Compass Altitude Limited Edition Launched

Jeep Compass Altitude Limited Edition Launched

Jeep this week announced the launch of the limited edition Jeep Compass Altitude for the 2013 model year. In a week which has seen the launch of the Keep Grand Cherokee Alpine Edition, it seems Chrysler South Africa has decided to kick-start the year in an aggressive manner. We wonder what else they have planned for the year.

The “Altitude” name stems from a competition that was run following the launch of the Jeep Grand Cherokee concept vehicle at the Houston Motor Show early in 2012. With more than 100,000 entries from enthusiasts of the Jeep brand – which boasts more than 2 million Facebook fans – “Altitude” emerged as the winning vehicle name.

A distinctive black gloss finish surrounds Compass’ trademark seven-slot Jeep grille and headlamps, and the treatment continues with black roof rails and a black step pad. The Compass Altitude rides on exclusive 18-inch black gloss aluminium wheels.

The Jeep Compass Altitude model features power heated exterior mirrors and heated seats, continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), 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.

Available immediately to order in Bright Silver, Black, Tungsten metallic and Bright White, the Jeep Compass Altitude will retail for R295,490 for the 5-speed manual transmission and R302,490 for the CVT (VAT included). Only 199 Altitude units will be available for sale locally making this a rare product offering.

2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 Alpine Edition [with Video]

2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 Alpine Edition [with Video]

Chrysler South Africa this week announced the availability of the new 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 Alpine Edition. The  limited edition Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 Alpine Edition features purely cosmetic changes and from what we gather no power enhancements. But then again the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8  already has enough grunt so additional power is not really required.

In addition to the standard Grand Cherokee SRT8 specifications, the Alpine edition, of which only 95 units will be made available locally, features unique Bright White paintwork, as well as Black Vapor Chrome finish on the standard split 5-spoke, 20-inch wheels along with unique gloss black exterior appointments, including:

  • Jeep hood badge
  • Grand Cherokee door badge
  • Front grille surround and inserts
  • Rear light bar and step pad
  • Rear liftgate SRT8 badge accent

The Alpine Edition sets the Jeep Brand’s low-volume, high-performance vehicles apart, and the new and unique exterior styling cues enhance the distinct, performance-oriented looks of the most awarded SUV ever.

The Grand Cherokee SRT8 Alpine edition is available immediately from Jeep dealerships countrywide and will retail for R864,990.00.
