SOME MIGHT CALL THESE TESTS CRUEL. WE CALL THEM INITIATION.
Jeep® Trail Rated® 4x4s have enough traction to climb the type of hills most people would only attempt with a rope and a spotter. Jeep vehicles offer a variety of 4×4 systems to suit all kinds of terrain and driving conditions. Testing includes traction on untamed, slippery roads (wet, mud, snow) and on steep grades.
SURE, YOU COULD DRIVE AROUND IT. BUT WHAT’S THE FUN IN THAT?
The articulation standard indicates that when one or more wheels are elevated, the Jeep® 4×4 system helps the others stay on the ground longer to keep you moving. Suspensions enhance off-road performance by maximizing flexibility, axle articulation and wheel travel.
GO AS SLOW AS POSSIBLE, AS FAST AS NECESSARY.
The ability to cross a specific depth of water at a specific speed keeps you moving forward so you can cross streams and flooded underpasses. Your Trail Rated®Jeep® vehicle features additional electrical and body sealing, along with a high air intake for optimum water fording capability.
ATHLETIC. AGILE. TRAIL RATED®.
Jeep® 4x4s have the footwork to navigate narrow gaps, dodge emergency situations and avoid cosmetic damage to underbody sills thanks to precision steering and optimized wheelbases. Even gazelles don’t move like this.
BRING ON THE TERRAIN.
Why prove that Jeep® 4x4s can climb over obscenely large obstacles? Because one day when you need that capability, you’ll know you have it. Jeep 4x4s are tested for ability to drive over obstacles or logs, or whatever else happens to be in your path, includes approach, departure and breakover angles.
