Advanced 4×4 Systems

The Jeep doesn’t just receive respectable safety ratings but earns them through rigorous tests to show reliability on the road and capability to handle anything. To earn the title of a safe car, each Jeep vehicle must have a Trail Rated badge that shows that they have passed the safety test. This kind of testing includes testing traction on rough terrains like water, mud, gravel, snow, rocks, and sand. Are Jeeps safe? The safety test endured by each Jeep makes it one of the safest vehicles you can take on the Gatesville roads.
