2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Altitude | Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, Engine. – Welcome to Neocarsuv.Com, we will provide the latest information about the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Altitude. Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Altitude is one brand new car from Jeep that was released in 2012. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Altitude.
Jeep Wrangler sales were up 43 percent in March 2012 versus March 2011, and are up 30 percent for the year (through March). The new 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Altitude edition arrives in Jeep showrooms in May 2012.
For 2012, Jeep offers soft touch plastics, an engine that delivers both (relatively) impressive acceleration and fuel economy, and an interior I’d be a little afraid to get wet. Wranglers now offer four doors and a quiet enough interior to be considered as a daily driver for a small family. Before, a Wrangler was mostly a toy for weekends or young singles because it was loud, uncomfortable, and offered almost no useable interior room. The fact that any Wrangler model can command almost $38k is a testament to the loyalty of buyers to the Jeep brand.
On the heels of the popular Jeep Wrangler Call of Duty: MW3 and Arctic models and in response to Wrangler enthusiasts’ continued desire for limited edition vehicles Jeep is introducing its new, 2012 Wrangler Unlimited Altitude edition. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Altitude is the latest Altitude model in the Jeep lineup, following the introduction of the Grand Cherokee, Compass and Patriot Altitude models. Based on the 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara model, the Altitude edition offers Jeep enthusiasts a Wrangler with a unique appearance that includes a body color hardtop combined with a variety of black gloss exterior appointments, and a distinctive black and red interior theme.
“With sales up more than 30 percent year over year, Jeep Wrangler continues to show the special place it has in the hearts and minds of the American public,” said Mike Manley, President and CEO Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “One of the many things Jeep enthusiasts love is the series of limited volume, special edition Wrangler models we produce. The new Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Altitude builds on the previous models and delivers consumers yet another fun and distinctive Jeep vehicle straight from the factory.

Unlike the Wranglers of yore, in which you were forced to compromise comfort and usability for the fun of off roading prowess and open air motoring, this new Wrangler is a vehicle you could easily live with every day. It’s no longer inexpensive, but this model’s $30,000 as tested price is a bit of an outlier, as the least pricey Unlimited model can be had for around $38,000.
2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Altitude Interior :
But the fact is that this Jeep Wrangler has a lot of presence, helped no doubt by the black on black color scheme of the model we test drove. Climb up and into the Wrangler Unlimited Altitude, and it’s clear that this is not the barebones Jeep Wrangler of old. It has all the modern conveniences leather seats, a tilt steering wheel, an optional navigation system, and USB and Bluetooth connectivity and yet it still has the off road capability of its predecessors. On the meltingly hot days that I drove the Wrangler, I also was happy to see that the its air conditioning system was more than up to the task of keeping the interior cool (which doesn’t seem all that remarkable, except that the temperature was over 100 degrees and the vehicle, as previously mentioned, was all black).

2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Altitude Exterior :

We’ve waxed poetic about Chrysler Group’s Pentastar V-6 many times before. It’s a great engine, delivering a robust 285 horsepower and 260 pound feet of torque. It revs smoothly, delivering an impressive low end punch, yet it only really feels out of breath at the tip-top of the rev range. Mid range power is abundant, as well. The issue we have has more to do with the Wrangler itself than the powerplant. Economy isn’t very good, with 17 miles per gallon in the city and 21 mpg on the highway. Truth be told, we struggled to hit that 17 mpg figure during our week with the car. The other issue was one of noise. There’s just not a lot of sound deadening to keep the thrash from the engine out. It’s not that the Pentastar sounds bad, but that its good noise is just a bit too much for our ears. It’s like eating too much chocolate. It’s good, but it gives you a stomachache after a while.
