Are Jeeps safe to drive? Safety is a top priority, which is why Garavel CJDR has laid out some of the SUV’s exceptional safety features and ratings for Stamford and Greenwich shoppers. Learn more about how Jeep’s 4×4 systems and test ratings make them one of the most trusted in their class.

Key Safety Features

Jeep’s unique security features are designed to provide drivers with all the tools they need to stay safe on the Fairfield roads. Here are just a few of Jeep’s advanced security systems:

  • ParkView® Rear Backup Camera: Get a crystal clear view of any object behind your vehicle with the Uconnect® touchscreen. Whether you’re off-roading or pulling into a tight city parking space, this camera will help prevent any mishaps.
  • ParkSense® Rear Park Assist System: This sensor-based system alerts the driver when obstacles are close to their vehicle–working collectively with the ParkView® backup camera.
  • LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist: Notifies you when your vehicle has drifted from its intended lane without using your turn signal and can readjust your steering to get back on track.
  • Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking: This system will alert you when a vehicle is approaching too quickly and automatically brake if you experience a delayed response.
  • Blind Spot Monitoring: This special feature alerts you when a vehicle enters your blind spot so you can avoid a potential collision.
  • SOS Call and Assist Buttons: If you find yourself in an emergency situation, you can use SOS Call and Assist to connect to a Public Safety Answering point and request assistance.

Advanced 4×4 Systems

Jeeps are well-known for their off-roading capabilities, so it’s no surprise that they must pass a series of rigorous safety examinations. For example, the superior 4×4 systems in the Jeep Wrangler, Grand Cherokee, Cherokee, Compass, and Renegade Sport provide unparalleled traction and ground clearance so drivers can navigate any terrain around Westport. Below are some conditions where the Jeep 4X4 systems excel:

  • Mud
  • Sand
  • Gravel
  • Rock
  • Snow

Crash Test Ratings
