Firstly, the new-gen model comes with an all-new face with a larger and more stylish set of headlamps with integrated turn signal lights and stylish LED daytime running lights. The squinty, four-eyed face of the old vehicle has been swapped out for a much cleaner front end with sharp LED DRLs and Jeep's classic seven-slat grille. The company is also rolling out a new Ram 1500 pickup.
Off-road-focused Trailhawk variants are expected to retain more muscular styling, with the inclusion of tow hooks, black cladding on the bumpers and wheelarches, all-terrain tyres and an increased ride height. The SUV also comes with electrically operable ORVMs, side cladding, and some bold character lines.
