And while we are waiting for the arrival of the new generation Wrangler, the car manufacturer has prepared something rather unexpected. They decided to add some small changes on the 2017 Jeep Wrangler Sahara, which will make this fancy trim level even more interesting. It’s not anything big, but still, several new colors from the outside and upgraded interior will definitely make the vehicle more preferable.
2017 Jeep Wrangler Sahara: Exterior and Interior Changes
No, the carmaker won’t change anything on the exterior styling at all. The iconic off-roader will keep its distinctive body untouched until the arrival of the new generation Wrangler. Still, the 2017 Sahara trim is getting several new paints, so you can choose between Billet Silver Metallic Clearcoat [Silver], Granite Crystal Metallic Clearcoat [Gray], Firecracker Red Clearcoat [Red], Rhino Clearcoat [Gray], Hydro Blue Pearlcoat [Blue], Hypergreen Clearcoat [Green], Mojave Sand Clearcoat [Tan] and Tank Clearcoat [Green]. This trim level features the body-color hardtop, which you won’t find with the base Sport model.
The cab of the 2017 Jeep Wrangler Sahara is also mildly updated. The manufacturer decided to add an interesting Olive Green option, which makes the rugged inside more refined and stylish. In addition, the SUV will enhance the level of comfort with leather-trimmed seats, which are also heated and really cozy. Still, in contrast to the ordinarily Sedoso upholstery, we strongly suggest you the new McKinley leather.
Features and Technology
The 2017 Wrangler Sahara is the upper trim level, so you will find a number of pretty useful features inside. For instance, the base Sport model sports just 16-inch wheels, while the Sahara has 18-inch satin carbon wheels and 31-inch tires with Torx tool set.
A navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, and power windows are just some options you will find in the new Sahara, but there is also a standard automatic climate control and premium audio system. The Alpine audio system features 9 speakers and an all-weather subwoofer, while the SiriusXM Satellite Radio includes 120 channels.
Unchanged Performance and Low Price
Unfortunately, you won’t find anything new under the hood of the 2017 Jeep Wrangler Sahara. The next-gen model will definitely get several new options like the new 2.0-liter Hurricane, or a diesel engine, but at the moment, you will have to be satisfied with “one and only” 3.6-liter Pentastar unit. The reliable mill deliver 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, and it’s rated at 17 city / 21 highway mpg, but as we have found out, both the output and fuel economy will be boosted with the arrival of the new generation Jeep Wrangler.
The 2017 Wrangler Sahara is already available, and the starting price of around $30,000 isn’t too high at all, because you will get an ultimate off-roader with capable engine and premium interior.
