Are Jeeps Safe?

The idea of purchasing an off-road capable new Jeep is alluring to many Blackfoot drivers, and for good reason! However, many may ask themselves, are Jeeps safe? We’re happy to tell you that, yes, Jeeps are perfectly safe! No matter which model you choose, or which of the Wrangler colors you choose, you’ll be just as safe driving with your kids as you will be conquering the trails near Pocatello. Explore Jeep safety systems, ratings, and 4×4 options with Ron Sayer's Chrysler Jeep Dodge below, and then compare vehicles like the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. 2019 Jeep Cherokee.

Top-Notch Jeep Safety Features

Here are a few of Jeep’s best safety and security systems and features:

  • ParkView® Rear Backup Camera: When married with the Uconnect® touchscreen, hitching a trailer or parking in awkward spaces is simple. If you plan to do a lot of towing in your Jeep Wrangler, you’ll find this feature especially useful.
  • ParkSense® Rear Park Assist System: Parking in Rexburg can be difficult at times with so much going on around you. With this system, you’ll always be alerted to obstacles behind your Jeep.
  • LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist: It happens to the best of drivers, so if you ever accidentally drift from your lane, this system will warn you and automatically correct your steering to get you back to your lane.
  • Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking: If you’re coming up on the vehicle ahead too quickly and can’t react in time, your brakes will auto-engage.
  • Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path Detection: You’ll always know if someone is in your blind spot with BSM, and RCPD lets you know when there’s a vehicle approaching while you’re in reverse.
  • SOS Call and Assist Buttons: The SOS Call button is on your rearview mirror, and allows you to reach out to a Public Safety Answering point to get emergency assistance. The Assist button allows you to request roadside assistance.

Jeep 4×4 Systems

When you drive a Jeep, you’ll have the chance to choose from a number of optional superior 4×4 systems. You can rest assured that each system has been put to the test in extreme conditions to prove just how safe, dependable, and durable they truly are. The Jeep Wrangler, Grand Cherokee, Cherokee, Compass, and Renegade all boast the Jeep Trail Rated® badge, which tells you that each 4×4 icon is second-to-none in traction, water fording, ground clearance, and much more.

When you’ve got a Jeep 4×4 system like Command-Trac® or Jeep Active Drive Lock backing you up on your adventures, you’ll be able to handle everything the streets and trails near Jackson Hole might throw at you, including:

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