Jeep vehicles offer a variety of 4x4 systems to suit all kinds of terrain and driving conditions. Testing includes traction on untamed, slippery roads (wet, mud, snow) and on steep grades.

Trail Rated Water Fording means that your Jeep vehicle has the ability to cross a specific depth of water at a specific speed, and keep you moving forward — so you can cross streams and flooded underpasses. Your Jeep vehicle also features additional electrical and body sealing, along with a high air intake for optimum water fording+ capability.

Jeep 4X4 vehicles have the versatile adaptability required for navigating narrow gaps, dodging emergency situations and avoiding cosmetic damage to its underbody sills - all thanks to their precision steering and optimized wheelbases.

The articulation standard indicates that when one or more wheels are elevated, the Jeep 4x4 system will assist the others in remaining on the ground longer, in order to keep you moving. Suspensions enhance off-road performance by maximizing flexibility, axle articulation and wheel travel.
