Different atmospheric pressure and ambient temperature of different altitude affect the dynamic performance of vehicle. Subject to laboratory conditions, this paper builds a simulation model of a commercial vehicle based on GT-Power software to study the dynamic performance of a commercial vehicle at different altitudes by acceleration time, maximum gradability and maximum speed of vehicle evidently. Advanced turbocharging technique was deemed to be effective measure to improve dynamic
