The new LED headlights will be a factory feature for the 2017 Jeep Wrangler being made for the American market. It’s the first time Fiat Chrysler has changed the headlights on this much beloved vehicle.

The new headlights are just a hint of some of the changes Jeep enthusiasts can expect to see when the 2018 model hits the showroom and the streets. In 2018 ,Jeep will replace the current Wrangler with a brand new model. So the 2017 model is the last opportunity for buyers to get the Wrangler they have come to know. Fiat Chrysler hasn’t said what changes people can expect for 2018, but rest assured it’s going to be great.

People who purchase the 2017 Wrangler or the four door Wrangler Unlimited will get the new headlights as part of the Sahara and Rubicon trims standard equipment. The Sport and Sport S will see the new LED headlight offered as an option. They will make it all the better to see your way no matter where your travel adventures take you. According to the venerable forum Jeep Garage lower trims that want the new LED headlights will have to pay $595 for it as a dealer-added upgrade.

Jeep’s press release says the new lights are significantly brighter. The output of the low beam will be increased by 63 percent, while the high-beam output will increase by 90 percent. Sounds like it will make nighttime driving almost as bright as daylight. The fog lights on the 2017 Wrangler will be LED as well.
