I like the color. The painted bumper and mirrors do give it a bit of a different feel - not sure if i like it or not. I do hate the 20's though...

I like the Snazzberry color and the interior. But a definite no on the 20" wheels. And as someone else mentioned, If it is a "High Altitude" it should have a turbo to compensate for the thin air. Probably too much mark up for may taste any way. A turbo might make it worth the price though.

Am I the only one who see’s a resemblance to the Mercedes version of a wrangler with all the paint matching? I feel like that’s the crowd they’re after, the look of luxury but the badges of a Jeep.

I like the interior, not sure how I feel about everything paint matched. One thing about the 20" wheels. A 20" wheel with a 37" tire would have similar road/towing manners as a 17" wheel with a 33" tire.

While it looks super nice, it kinda looks like a daily driver for the city. Not very Durable or rough and tumble for "High Altitude" driving in my opinion.
Side walls on low profile tires are thin, and you wouldn't be doing any low pressure crawling in the rocks or un-improved/un-maintained roads.

Not for me. How about a model that I can hose the inside out?

Should have been named “Mall Crawler”.
If it were truly “High Altitide” they should have at least put in a turbo charged engine.
Here in Illinois we just recently legalized marijuana, so I just assumed (given the Chicago Auto Show debut) it was more a nod to the "High" in High Altitude - cuz' you'd have to be high as hell to buy that. I do admit, though, I kind of like the snozzberry color.

So we're getting an additional shade of gray/brown to add to our collection of gray/brown. And another variant of a color we already have: red.

Still waiting on yellow... I'm ready to purchase, I'm just waiting for this one color that's been offered on pretty much every Jeep in the history of Jeep, minus the gladiator...

Uh, no thanks! Who puts dubs on a Jeep and then says "let's go crawling today." That would be no one. Now the Mojave I can get down with.
