Do you enjoy off-roading and the adventures it brings? If you're a dedicated Jeep owner, you'll notice the Trail Rated® branding located on the exterior. Much more than an emblem, Trail Rated has a greater meaning. When a Jeep vehicle is Trail Rated it means that is has been rigorously tested and approved for ultimate off-roading excursions.

What We Test

In order to properly test Jeep models to meet Trail Rated standards, they are truly put through the elements. From snow banks to river crossings, you'll be impressed how safe and efficient Jeep Trail Rated models are.

  • Traction - Whether you plow through a jagged trail or meet an unexpected snowstorm on your way home from work, Trail Rated Jeep models are able to handle many heavy-duty weather conditions with ease.
  • Electrical connection and body opening protection - If you love splashing through puddles or larger bodies of water, you'll want to make sure your vehicle's components are secure. Jeep Trail Rated models have sealed body openings and electrical connections to keep them safe through water. The air intake is also positioned higher than on other vehicles.
  • Maneuverability - Because your off-road adventure may take some unexpected twists and turns, our engineers make sure Trail Rated Jeep models can safely make their way through any situation or terrain.
  • Articulation - Suspension flexibility is important on- and off-road, so Jeep Trail Rated vehicles are engineered with higher levels of articulation for more precise driving.
  • Ground clearance - Surely you'll be tackling rocky trails on an off-road journey. Trail Rated Jeeps provide plenty of clearance between the underside of the vehicle and the terrain so you can keep your vehicle and yourself protected.
