Jeep® Introduces New Limited-edition
Midrand – Chrysler South Africa’s Jeep® brand announced the launch of the limited-edition “Altitude” version of the popular Jeep Compass model for 2013.
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.
The new limited-edition Compass Altitude continues the “from-the-factory” customized look first seen in the Grand Cherokee concept shown in last January.
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.
