At least other options should be available instead of just the halogen lamps that are known to provide inadequate illumination at night.
Halogen lamps like the ones found in Jeep Wranglers and Renegades has been rated by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) as the some of the worst headlights in 2016 compare to those of other small SUVs.
Light provided by halogen lamps were found to be inadequate on curvy roads and straightaways at night. LED low beams should give drivers enough time to identify obstacles on the right side of the road and brake when driving straight at 70 mph, someone with halogen lights will need to drive 20 mph slower to be able to do the same.
To remedy this long documented problem, Jeep will be offering LED or HID headlight for the 2017 model year. According to FourWheeleer, the Renegade, Cherokee and Wrangler will have the LED as optional or standard equipment.
The Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited will have LED headlights and fog lights as standard features with the Sahara and Rubicon trims while the base Sport and Sport S models will get it as an additional option. As for the Cherokee, next year the LED lamps will be standard on ever trim but the base Sport model. The Renegade will also get these too but as a late availability option on the Latitude, Limited, and Trailhawk trim levels.
Once the Wrangler JL is out, we can expect to see similar LED headlights as standard equipment or additional option.
