2017 Jeep Wrangler changes

The 2017 Jeep Wrangler will come with many significant changes. One of them will be a new aluminum-made body, which will provide significant weight loss, which will ensure much better fuel economy. However, this might not be the most important change. According to rumors, it all indicates that 2017 Wrangler will get a unibody platform, instead of traditional body-on-frame platform. If company decide for this move, it will definitely be a revolutionary change, because all previous model were based on traditional body-on-frame platform. However you should take this with big reserve, because it is just a speculation for now. When it is about exterior look, 2017 Wrangler will definitely keep its traditional look, but we expect to see plenty of design tweaks, which will make this vehicle more attractive and modern-looking. Inside new Wrangler, we also expect to see many novelties. Beside revisited design of cabin, new model will get some new or upgraded safety features and also some new entertainment features.
