WHAT IS TRAIL RATED®?
A Trail Rated® badge is not given, it's earned. Every Trail Rated 4x4 Jeep® vehicle has succeeded against a series of gruelling tests in five categories: Traction, Water Fording, Manoeuvrability, Articulation and Ground Clearance.
Why do we test? Pushing our vehicles as far as they can go is part of our DNA. As long as we strive for groundbreaking capability and you pursue exhilarating adventure, Jeep Trail Rated® vehicles will continue to be tested to battle everything you may encounter.
WATER FORDING( DisclosureWater fording capability varies depending on model. Make sure to follow water fording instructions in the Owner's Manual. Traversing water can cause damage that may not be covered by the new vehicle warranty. Always off-road responsibly in approved areas.)
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.
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.
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 maximised, giving you more options to go over, when going around isn't possible.
WHERE WE TEST
Trail Rated® testing begins in the state-of-the-art facilities at FCA US headquarters, before heading out to some of the most challenging terrain on earth. Jeep® Trail Rated 4x4 vehicles don't just endure the hostile cold of Northern Michigan and the unforgivable boulders of the Rubicon Trail, they conquer. Treacherous trails and weather conditions only serve to reinforce their remarkable Trail Rated® capability.
