Highlighted Jeep Safety Features

With the advanced engineering that goes into every Jeep model, you can take on tough terrain safely and without breaking a sweat. One of the greatest benefits of bringing a Jeep home to Chico is knowing you will be able to enjoy comfortable weekday commutes and safe weekend adventures every time. A sampling of the latest Jeep safety features include:

  • ParkView® Rear Backup Camera: Paired with the Uconnect® touchscreen, this backup camera makes trailering and parking easier and safer than ever. Confidently haul cargo across Red Bluff knowing your Jeep is watching your back.
  • ParkSense® Rear Park Assist System: While you park, this advanced feature uses sensors to alert you when potential hazards are near.
  • LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist: If you start to drift out of your lane without your indicator on, this system will alert you and can help to center you in your intended lane.
  • Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking: With Forward Collision Warning, your daily travels will be safer as you will be notified if you begin to approach a vehicle directly ahead of you too quickly. If you don’t have time to react, the brakes will engage automatically.
  • Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path Detection: With this system, your Jeep is able to monitor those zones you can see for safer lane changes. RCPD will alert you if you begin to approach a vehicle while you are in reverse.
  • SOS Call and Assist Buttons: Jeep drivers love to blaze a new trail. No matter where your journey takes you, you can stay connected to emergency services thanks to the SOS Call button located on the rearview mirror. The Assist button will allow you to request roadside assistance should you experience a breakdown.

Every Jeep offered with a 4×4 system has been put through extreme tests to prove the capability and safety of your vehicle. A number of Jeep models including the Jeep Wrangler, Jeep Gladiator, Jeep Renegade, Jeep Compass, Jeep Cherokee, and Jeep Grand Cherokee proudly sport the Trail Rated® badge.
