2017 Jeep Wrangler Finally Receives LED Headlights

2017 Jeep Wrangler Finally Receives LED Headlights

The Jeep Wrangler is finally shining its way into a new modern era. The model won’t get completely upgraded until 2018, but in the meantime, Jeep is tossing its old headlights in favor of LEDs.

The 2017 Wrangler will offer both LED headlights and fog lights. They’ll come standard on the Sahara and Rubicon trims while the Sport and Sport S trim offer them as an add on.   

The jump to LEDs shows that Jeep takes the dissatisfaction with its former dark-ages halogen lights seriously. The jump straight to LED skips over the HID option and stays just shy of the new lasers and OLED lights. (The newest lighting technologies aren’t even legal in the United States due to antiquated safety regulations.)

The Wrangler, Cherokee and Renegade have all faced IIHS discrimination as having the worst headlights on the market. However, the Wrangler is the only one in the lineup to get the LED option so far. The Cherokee currently offers HID on the Limited and High Altitude trims. They are standard on the Overland. For 2017 HID lights come standard on everything but the base Sport trim. Meanwhile, the Renegade will only offer HID lights as part of the safety and security add-ons for the Latitude, Limited, and Trailhawk trims. The base Sport will only offer the old lights.

2017 Jeep Wrangler Updates

Aside from the big lighting upgrade, here are some other 2017 highlights for the Jeep Wrangler

Three new colors will be added to the lineup: Chief, Acid Yello and Gobi. If you have a thing for purple, Xtreme Purple will be expanded across the lineup.

A Cold Weather package will be available on Sport S and Rubicon models. It includes 17-inch BF Goodrich KO2 tires, engine block heater, all-weather slush mats, Power Convenience Group, heated seats, and remote start.
