Exterior and Interior Design of the 2017 Jeep Wrangler Diesel
Speaking in terms of structure and design, the 2017 Wrangler Diesel will remain same. Frankly speaking, this is a wise decision made by the company because if the design and structure language are changed, the uniqueness and originality of the Jeep Wrangler might have a negative impact. To provide better off-road driving experience, the wheelbase is slightly made bigger. This time Jeep Wrangler will have the chassis made from aluminum, the advantage of using aluminum is that it is lighter in weight and consequently it will greatly assist in reducing the weight of this Jeep. Headlights, tail lights, and fog lights will get improvements in terms of visibility. Modifications have been made to the front bumper and tow hook has been attached to it. The same iconic grille has been featured on its fascia along with 7 vertical slats embedded into the chassis itself.
On the interior, the rather unattractive design of the dashboard on current models will be replaced with something modern and convenient to use. Most of the interior will be waterproof and the seats will still feature easy to clean vinyl. The new LED lighting system has made the interior cabin perfectly illuminated. Several accessories in the interior cabin like the floor mats which have similar design pattern as the tires charmingly represent the off-road capabilities of the new 2017 Jeep Wrangler Diesel.
