The Jeep brand says it will produce three new limited-edition Jeep vehicles: the Grand Cherokee, Compass and Patriot Altitude models, which will arrive in Jeep showrooms in May.
In January, Jeep introduced a distinctive, “blacked-out” production-intent concept Grand Cherokee at the Houston Auto Show, and connected with consumers to name the model.
With more than 100,000 entries, “Altitude” emerged as the winning vehicle name.

“The fact that well over 100,000 consumers entered our ‘Name My Ride’ contest reinforces the passion behind the Jeep brand, and its position as one of the most recognizable and popular brands in the world,” said Mike Manley, president and CEO – Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC.
The Jeep vehicle lineup consists of the Compass, Grand Cherokee, Liberty, Patriot, Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited.
To meet consumer demand around the world, all six Jeep models are sold outside North America – and all are available in right-hand drive versions and with gasoline and diesel powertrain options.
Chrysler Group LLC sells and services vehicles in nearly 120 countries around the world.
