Is the 17 in Park mode and the 16 in regular? I feel like the front end looks weaker. Not as tuff looking.

I prefer the 2016. I like the 2017 as well including the wheels.

Re: 2017 vs 2016 Overland pics Granite Crystal / opinions

Not a fan of the black grill. The wheels are ok, but I'm coming from the perspective of a 14 Overland with the 18" wheels.

That nasty ass grill would ultimately result in a repaint or ordering the vehicle in black.

Totally agree!

I have a 2015 Granite Overland and like my front end much better then that 2017 model. A totally color matched vehicle looks MUCH better IMHO. So they should also lose most of the chrome.

Re: 2017 vs 2016 Overland pics Granite Crystal / opinions

I really like what they did around the headlights on the '17. That's one thing I didn't like on my '14, the black honeycomb plastic below my headlights.

I agree with that, the headlights on the 17 are much cleaner.

But that's all. The grill, grill surround and wheels look like crap.
