Stand Out From the Crowd With Altitude

Jeep loves coming out with new editions of the Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited to appeal to different crowds. The Altitude is meant for those who like to take style and adventure to new heights. From strategically placed black accents around the headlights and within the throat of the body color grill to the finely-tuned interior, the Altitude makes a bold statement to other four-wheelers that dare tread in your path. Get a first-hand look at the Jeep Wrangler Altitude edition with a visit to Chapman Jeep Scottsdale.

You Can Be Comfortable When Climbing Trails

There’s no law that says you have to be rattling around in a steel cage when taking on some of the world’s toughest trails. The Altitude’s thoughtful interior starts with leather-trimmed seats featuring black accent stitching. Black is the new black in this interior, with piano black vent rings and grab handles to keep you cool while you’re white-knuckling your way up a mountain. An Alpine nine-speaker stereo is available to soothe you with concert-quality sound when the going gets tough. A leather-wrapped steering wheel gives you a secure grip with all audio controls available at a finger’s reach.

Rock Rails and Power Dome Hood Give Aggressive Look

The premium off-road rock rails help protect the sides of your new Wrangler from unwanted boulders and other punishment, along with giving you an easy step up into the vehicle. The raised power dome hood is admittedly just there for an aggressive look, but the 18-inch wheels and Bridgestone Dueler tires definitely have a purpose. These aggressive-tread tires help keep you connected to terra firma as you maneuver your way up a steep hillside. The Altitude comes with a removable hard top, but you can add the Black Sunrider Soft Top as an option.

Trail-Rated Altitude Means it’s Ready for Business

The Altitude is Trail-Rated, which means it has passed a number of tests associated with the tough Rubicon Trail. Its Command-Trac 4×4 system works in concert with the 3.6-liter engine to provide plenty of power and grip to tame the wildest trails. Heavy duty suspension with gas shocks helps even out the ride and keep you in comfort as you decide which path to take. You have your choice of a 6-speed manual transmission or 5-speed automatic. You can also add a locking rear differential to help conquer tougher paths. See the Jeep Wrangler Altitude at Chapman Jeep Scottsdale.


Named After Rocky Telluride Pass

There must be nothing more fun than coming up with different Wrangler packages and naming them after particularly challenging off-road trails. After all, the Wrangler built its name on being the toughest four-wheeler on the market. Although most people are familiar with the Rubicon package, there are other trim levels with special features specially designed with iconic off-road destinations in mind. In the case of the Black Bear Edition, it is named after the Black Bear Pass which starts near Ouray, Colorado and ends just outside Telluride. Although the trail is just 10 miles long, the altitude (above 11,000 feet) and narrow switchbacks make it a white-knuckle journey that is worthy of having its own Jeep nameplate. Check in with the off-road experts at Chapman Jeep Scottsdale to see about getting your hands on a Black Bear Jeep Wrangler.

Notorious Trail Deserves Notorious Jeep

The Black Bear Pass has been described as “notorious,” so the designers made sure the Black Bear Jeep Wrangler is worthy of its namesake. From the topographical map on the hood detailing the route to the reinforced rock rails, this Wrangler is set up to take abuse. Kevlar-reinforced tires are resistant to puncture from sharp rocks. The standard 3.6-liter Pentastar engine combines with Jeep’s command-trac four-wheel drive system to provide plenty of power and traction to get out of tight spots as you inch your way along the trail. Choose the soft-top to enjoy the thin, fresh air or opt for a hard top if you’re concerned about falling rocks.

Creature Comforts Make Travel Enjoyable

In case you need to focus elsewhere due to a fear of heights, concentrate on the interior where a leather-wrapped steering wheel and grab handles provide a touch of sophistication. You may not need the standard air conditioning at that altitude, but the infotainment system can provide some relaxing tunes and connectivity with the outside world should you need a little help moving a boulder or two.

Other Limited Editions Available

Along with the Black Bear package, Jeep offers other limited edition Wranglers. The Rubicon Hard Rock edition is the top of the line, offering all the toughness needed to take on nature’s worst nightmares with the interior comforts the modern four-wheeler demands. The Hard Rock utilizes a tough Rock-trac transfer case to ward off damage and a low 4:1 gear ratio to allow you to crawl over those toughest paths at a safe pace. Electronic locking differentials and front sway bar disconnect provide the final touches you need to master the toughest trail. Interior comforts include heated leather seats, Quick Silver accents and a premium sound system. See all the latest Jeep models at Chapman Jeep Scottsdale.
