Jeep Wranglers have a reputation for being dangerous vehicles. One common fear among drivers is that they may tip over. Safety should be a huge priority of any car owner, and Jeep continues to install incredible safety features in new Wranglers to silence any doubters. Discover the newest Jeep Wrangler safety features found in 2020 models.
Blind Spot Monitoring
Your Jeep’s blind spot can cause a major accident if you happen to move into a lane where a car isn’t visible to you. Luckily, the latest Jeep Wranglers have Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path Detection, which utilize radar sensors that will alert you to any vehicles in your blind spot. These features eliminate the dangerous guessing game we sometimes rely on when we drive.
High Beam Headlamps
A Jeep’s headlights are part of what makes its appearance so iconic, but turning on your high beams at the wrong time can be dangerous. To assist with safety, new Jeep Wranglers do the work for you with automatic high-beam headlamps, which can sense when they should be turned on.
Adaptive Cruise Control
Cruise control is an excellent feature that has been available in many cars for some time. Self-driving cars are a little ways away, but adaptive cruise control is the next step toward that. The adaptive cruise control feature in Jeep Wranglers maintains the selected speed in addition to automatically keeping a safe distance from other cars on the road.
Accidents happen suddenly, and not paying attention for a split second can cost you your life. The Jeep Wrangler’s forward collision warning alerts you to potential dangers in front of you and brakes automatically if you can’t move your foot to the brake pedal in time.
Rear Backup Camera
When you’re parking in tight corners or in crowded areas, seeing everything around you can be difficult. The ParkView rear backup camera allows you to clearly see what’s behind you by simply looking at a monitor on your dashboard. The ParkSense Rear Park System can also alert you of any objects that might be in the way as you’re backing up.
If you plan on using your Jeep Wrangler for off-roading adventures, you can add even more safety features yourself. Some products AM Off-Road has to offer include Jeep Wrangler hood latch locks, off-road lighting, bumpers, and so much more.
