Deluxe Jeep® High Altitude Trim Comes to Wrangler and Gladiator

Jeep® is known far and wide for its rugged, trail-ready trucks and exciting SUVs, and now you can add premium touches and sophisticated details to the list. At the recent Chicago Auto Show, the ultra-luxurious Jeep® High Altitude trim was unveiled for both the Wrangler and Gladiator.

The High Altitude versions of the Gladiator and Wrangler come with a bevy of exterior and interior upgrades. On the outside, you can outfit your vehicle of choice with 20-inch painted gloss-black aluminum wheels, matching body-color hardtops, door handles, bumpers, and more. You’ll also stand out wherever you go thanks to the exclusive Trail Rated® badge.

Inside, you’ll find yourself swaddled in luxury thanks to standard full-leather appointments like a leather-wrapped dashboard and center console, Nappa leather seating, and an available leather-wrapped steering wheel. You’ll also enjoy a standard suite of infotainment and connectivity features.

“We’ve taken the most capable SUV and midsize pickup on the planet and delivered a pair of truly unique vehicles, inside and out, so there’s clearly no compromise between luxury and capability,” said Jim Morrison, head of Jeep® Brand – FCA North America.

Most American Car Is Jeep® Cherokee

Most people know which car brands are based here in the U.S. and which aren’t. However, just because a manufacturer has its headquarters here, that does not mean all of its vehicles are produced here. If you want your new car to be truly made in America, you should buy the 2019 Jeep® Cherokee. For the second year in a row, the Jeep® Cherokee was named the most American car

Each year, Cars.com analyzes new vehicles to determine not only where they are assembled, but how much of their individual parts are made in America. Cars.com considers five factors for its American-Made Index (AMI):

  • Assembly location
  • Origin of parts
  • Country of origin for its engine(s)
  • Country of origin for its transmission(s)
  • Number of Americans employed at the factory level

The Cherokee is assembled in Belvidere, Illinois and has engines and transmissions built in the U.S., as well. The Jeep® Wrangler held the top spot in 2017, giving FCA a three-year streak for producing the most American-made vehicles.

The Cherokee is available in eight trim levels: Latitude, Latitude Plus, Altitude, Limited, High Altitude, Trailhawk®, Overland, and Trailhawk® Elite. It is also available with three engine options so buyers can choose how much power they really need under the hood. To test-drive any of these Cherokee models, stop in to see us here at Kevin’s Royal Auto.

Jeep® Debuts 6 Cool Concepts at Moab Easter Jeep® Safari

The all-new 2020 Jeep® Gladiator stole the show at the Moab Easter Jeep® Safari. Now in its 53rd year, the event takes place in Moab, Utah, and draws in thousands of off-road drivers. This year, the safari was home to six cool concepts that attendees won’t be forgetting anytime soon.

Jeep® Wayout

The Jeep® Wayout features a true outdoor design, complete with full roof-top tent and canopy. The body-armored exterior boasted a Gator Green paint job, available on the Gladiator pickup. A custom bed rack and amber LED lighting makes for a great spot to set up camp. The Wayout rolled out on athletic 17-inch wheels wrapped in 27-inch tires.

Jeep® J6

Built on a Rubicon body, the Jeep® J6 nods to the late 1970s styling mixed with Mopar performance parts. A 6-foot functional bed adds an additional foot to the standard Gladiator. A steel sport/roll bar in the bed features four 5-inch LED lights that light up the trails.

Jeep® Gladiator Gravity

The Jeep® Gladiator Gravity features an upgraded cold-air intake and exhaust system that enhances performance. Inside, the pickup features Katzkin leather seats with Tungsten stitching. A 2-inch lift kit and 35-inch tires raise this concept to new heights.
