Thumbs up New 2017 beside my 2016

Looked nice, and I liked the front fascia changes. Thought I'd post =)

Not much in changes on outside so i bet they will deal on the 17 as most will look for bigger deals on the 16.

I love that red color, but I'm not a huge fan of the new front fascia, personally.

Thanks for posting the side-by-side.

I like the lower part of the front fascia of the new '17... big opening at the bottom looks good. The narrow air vents near the top of it, right in the center... uh, not so much. I assume that is some engineering for additional cooling that will be a benefit for the Hellcat Jeep later on.

Thank for posting the side by side pictures. I have not seen the 16 and 17 side by side. I started to buy a 2016 last summer but decided to get the 2017 when I was told the grill was black. Seeing them side by side I am glad I went for the 2017...looks much more aggressive IMO...
