What We Test

With preliminary tests conducted at the state-of-the-art facilities at FCA US headquarters, Jeep Trail Rated models are truly put to the test. Trail Rated models are then faced with the difficult trails of Northern Michigan and the rocky terrain of Moab, Utah, all to guarantee your Jeep can provide a reliable and exciting driving experience.

  • Traction - Excellent traction is important both on- and off-road, so Jeep engineers test and refine Trail Rated models to make it through even the toughest terrain.
  • Protection - Electrical connections and body opening protection are put to the test with the water fording test to determine that your vehicle stays secure in even the deepest puddles and creeks.
  • Maneuverability - Precise handling and steering are tested so you can work your way through a trail or traffic with ease.
  • Articulation - Maximum suspension flexibility is a must for hitting the trails, so Jeep Trail Rated models are tested and built for higher levels of articulation.
  • Ground Clearance - Jeep engineers determine the proper level of ground clearance between the underside of your vehicle and the terrain to prevent underbody damage.
