Here at your local Chrysler, Dodge, RAM, and Jeep® dealership, we already know there’s a lot to look forward to in the 2017 model year. Just look at all the accolades heaped on the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica, or take a test drive in the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee. But while it’s easy to see why the first cars of 2017 are great, there are also some exciting new upgrades that are a little harder to spot with the naked eye.

One of the most important features of the new 2017 FCA US LLC vehicles is the increased utilization of higher strength steels, whose usage in FCA US LLC vehicles is up 53 percent just since 2012. These higher strength steels directly connect to improved crashworthiness ratings, and they are a key factor in vehicle safety. And that’s not the only thing that’s going to make 2017’s vehicles safer than ever. LED headlamps will be making their debut in the 2017 Jeep Wrangler, and the increased light output will help drivers see trouble coming in time to avoid it. And that’s not even getting into over 75 other safety features, including driver assist, connectivity, occupant restraint, and more that will be gracing next year’s Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge, and RAM vehicles.

When the time comes to get a new car, don’t let your eyes fool you – sometimes, it’s the things that are harder to see that make the biggest difference.
