What is Jeep Trail Rated®?

February 11th, 2018 by

2018 Jeep Wrangler

Earning the Jeep Trail Rated badge is a special honor afforded to only the toughest, most off-road worthy vehicles in our lineup. In order to qualify, vehicles must pass off road testing administered by the Nevada Automotive Test Center that evaluates:

  • Ground Clearance – The vehicle must be able to clear obstacles without damage to the undercarriage.
  • Off-Road Articulation – When one wheel leaves the ground, the other three remain planted to keep the vehicle moving forward.
  • Water Fording – A sealed central venting system prevents the drivetrain from becoming waterlogged when the vehicle encounters water.
  • Maneuverability – A tight turning radius, responsive steering, and flexible suspension allow the vehicle to maneuver in uneven, challenging terrain.

Which Vehicles Offer the Trail Rated Designation?

The 2018 Jeep lineup offers Carlsbad shoppers access to five Trail Rated models for their off-road explorations:

Each comes equipped with a variety of drivetrains, interior configurations, tech add-ons, and amenities which make it easy to configure the perfect ride to take you south of the border, across the roughest backcountry, or simply into San Diego for a day of shopping.
