The American automaker has released fact sheets that detail the changes for the 2017 model year and one of the very notable changes could be the addition of HID or LED lighting. The 2017 Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited models will receive new LED headlights and fog lights, standard on Sahara and Rubicon models and optional on the Sport and Sport S models.
On the Jeep Renegade, the compact SUV can get HID headlights and automatic high-beams available as options, although the company notes it is likely to be late availability. Also new for 2017 are HID headlights for the Jeep Cherokee, which will be standard on all trim levels excluding Sport.
The addition of modern lighting options to various Jeep models likely come consequently of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s first headlight evaluation, where nearly all cars were rated poorly. Unfortunately, the American automaker hasn’t announced pricing for the 2017 models yet, so it’s unclear simply how much additional a few of the lighting upgrades will cost. Expect pricing home elevators the 2017 Jeep lineup to be announced soon.
