Next-Generation Jeep Safety Features

Current Jeep models come equipped with a wide array of standard and available Jeep safety features! Here are just a few of the advanced technologies that stand out:

  • ParkView® Rear Backup Camera: As part of your Uconnect® touchscreen infotainment system, this backup camera lets you quickly view your surroundings and find the perfect parking spot.
  • ParkSense® Rear Park Assist System: Parking on the streets of Dallas or Austin becomes even easier when you choose a model with ParkSense® Rear Park Assist. They’ll beep to alert you if you come too close to an obstacle.
  • LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist: Many accidents occur when a driver accidentally changes lanes without signalling! This system alerts you to any such changes, so you can get back on track.
  • Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking: If you come too close to a vehicle in your direct path, this system will warn you, and engage the brakes automatically if necessary.
  • Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path Detection: The BSM checks your blind spot automatically, and when you’re in reverse, the RCPD will alert you to vehicles approaching from either direction.
  • SOS Call and Assist Buttons: With these built-in assistance buttons, you’ll never be stuck on the side of the road again. Find them right on the rearview mirror.

Sophisticated 4×4 Technology

In order to earn the Jeep Trail-Rated® badge, a vehicle must pass several grueling rounds of testing. Models like the Jeep Wrangler, the Grand Cherokee, the Cherokee, and the Compass have all been proven to deliver Grade-A performance on the trails, or in weather that’s working against you.

No matter where your adventures take you, your Jeep will make you feel comfortable while traversing:

  • Mud
  • On-Road
  • Gravel
  • Snow
  • Rock 
  • Sand 

Remember that tire pressure can also have a major impact on vehicle safety, both on and off the trails. Find out how to make the most of your TPMS today!
