We just wrapped up another 4×4-filled week at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan. While the vehicles on the showroom floor offered plenty for Jeep enthusiasts to be excited about, it was a few key announcements about future product plans that had off-road fans and the press alike talking. Before we touch on that, let’s take a look at a few of the iconic Jeep brand vehicles that were on display.
The All-New 2017 Jeep Compass, shown here in Trailhawk trim in Spitfire Orange. Coming this spring, the 2017 Jeep Compass will continue the brand’s tradition of off-road dominance with best-in-class 4×4 capability.*
The new 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Winter, shown in Billet Silver. This new special-edition Wrangler model is equipped from the factory for winter action with standard features including BFGoodrich KO2™ tires wrapping 17-inch mid-gloss black wheels, premium off-road rock rails, heated front seats and all-weather slush mats.
The 2017 Jeep Renegade Desert Hawk, shown in Mojave Sand. The limited-edition Renegade Desert Hawk adds to the Renegade Trailhawk model’s off-road performance with a unique look topped off by the exclusive map hood decal.
The 2017 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk, shown in Hydro Blue. Style and capability were on full display in this Cherokee Trailhawk with its best-in-class 4×4 capability† and available 17-inch Black painted aluminum wheels.
And about those announcements … the Jeep brand kicked off NAIAS with exciting news, confirming the addition of three new models to our future lineup: a new Jeep pickup truck and the return of the legendary Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer nameplates. While we can’t give away much more than that right now, stay tuned to the Jeep blog for updates on all future and current Jeep vehicles, and visit www.jeep.com to learn more about the entire 2017 Jeep lineup.
