At Central Florida Chrysler Jeep® Dodge RAM, we are fully committed to our customers, providing service that is second to none. Our customers come from as far as Orlando and beyond to view our vast selection and experience our excellent customer service. One of the many questions our customers ask is, what it means to have a trail rated Jeep vehicle. On the surface, the answer to this question is self-explanatory. However, there is more to a trail-rated Jeep than just the name.

Surprisingly enough, not all Jeep models are fully equipped to handle every rugged situation they come across. This truth shocks plenty of our customers, considering the image the Jeep brand portrays. While many of their vehicles, like the limited trim Jeep Cherokee, are equipped for light trail running, there are others that are truly ready for anything. Jeep engineers actually consider trail-rating an extra feature, as not all Jeep drivers want to trek into the wild.

The term ‘trail rated’ is a broad sweeping term that includes a range of other features. Some of the features that are added with a trail-rated Jeep SUV include high ground clearance, increased traction, improved maneuverability, suspension articulation, and water fording. A trail-rated Jeep can do a whole lot more than a non-trail-rated Jeep, and understanding this can make the difference in the life-span of your vehicle.

If you’re looking for a Jeep trail-rated vehicle, like a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, or a Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk, we have you covered at Central Florida Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM. We have a wide selection of new Jeep SUVs to choose from, and our knowledgeable staff can help you determine whether you need something for light-trail running, or want something truly capable. So, if you have your eye on purchasing a brand new Jeep vehicle, give our dealership a call at (888)506-2776.
