WHAT IS TRAIL RATED®

A Trail Rated® badge is not given. It’s earned. Every Trail Rated 4x4 Jeep® Brand vehicle has succeeded against a series of grueling tests in five categories: Traction, Water Fording, Maneuverability, Articulation and Ground Clearance.

TRACTION 

WATER FORDING 

MANEUVERABILITY 

ARTICULATION 

GROUND CLEARANCE 

TRACTION


Jeep® Brand Trail Rated® 4x4 vehicles have the traction to handle some of the harshest, most unpredictable driving conditions. Whether you’re looking to take on some of the toughest terrain on earth or make it home through a freak snowstorm, your Jeep Brand Trail Rated vehicle can conquer.

Always drive within your ability and experience level and consistent with conditions.

WATER FORDING


With Trail Rated® capability on your side, you can traverse bodies of water that other vehicles wouldn’t dare attempt. Electrical connections and body openings are sealed and the air intake is positioned higher to protect your vehicle when driving through overflowing creeks, streams and deceivingly deep rainstorm puddles.

Do not attempt water fording unless depth is known to be less than 19-30 inches (depending on model). Traversing water can cause damage that may not be covered by the new vehicle warranty. Always off road responsibly in approved areas.

MANEUVERABILITY


Swiftly dodge obstacles on the trail, veer around narrow gaps, or safely navigate around an accident. Thanks to precision steering and optimized wheelbases, your Jeep® Brand Trail Rated® 4x4 vehicle can handle tight trail switchbacks and emergency situations.

Always drive within your ability and experience level and consistent with conditions.

ARTICULATION


The best adventures usually take place on the roughest terrain, but good articulation doesn’t just come in handy when off-roading. Areas with heavy construction or deep potholes require maximum suspension flexibility. Higher levels of articulation ensure your wheels remain stable and engaged when one or more tires are off the ground.

Always drive within your ability and experience level and consistent with conditions. Be sure to follow all instructions in owners manual for removal of top, doors and lowering of windshield.

GROUND CLEARANCE


Trail Rated® ground clearance gives you plenty of room between the underside of your vehicle and the terrain, allowing you to drive over rocks and logs without underbody damage. Approach, breakover and departure angles are all maximized, giving you more options to go over when going around isn’t possible.

Always drive within your ability and experience level and consistent with conditions.
