What Does Jeep’s Trail Rated Badge Mean?

2018 Jeep Cherokee Capability Trail Rated

Trail Rated Jeeps first were introduced in 2004 to signify which Jeep vehicles were trail worthy, according to strict Jeep specifications. Among the five criteria each vehicle is rigorously tested and evaluated by includes vehicle traction, maneuverability, ground clearance, water fording and off road articulation.
The only vehicles holding a Trail Rated status currently are the Jeep Wrangler, Compass, Renegade, Cherokee and Grand Cherokee. Jeep has since established with the help of their Nevada Automotive Test Center, which vehicles earn the right to be Trail Rated. While many drivers never imagine taking their vehicles off-road, that’s not going to be the experience for owners of a Trail Rated Jeep vehicle.

Jeep Trail Rated 4×4 vehicles are able to overcome bad weather with their superior traction. Their unique maneuverability is due to precise steering and optimized wheels bases that allow drivers to navigate their way effectively. No matter the terrain, they can push ahead.
Even with water in your path, a Jeep Trail Vehicle can go ahead. Water fording is the ability of a Jeep Trail Rated vehicle to plunge ahead through up to 19-30 inches of water. Carry on over large puddles and creeks in your way.

Tested in areas of the frigid cold and rocky area of Northern Michigan that many other vehicles wouldn’t dare try to conquer, Jeep Trail Rated vehicles are certified. These vehicles have the ground clearance and ability to go over hills, uneven terrain and rocks, tree stumps and more without damaging the undercarriage of your vehicle. Maximum vehicle suspension helps allow for a Jeep vehicle to handle each rocky off-road adventure.

Understanding why a Jeep owner loves their Jeep, proud Jeep owners embrace all a Jeep provides. For many, that Trail Rated badge symbolizing what makes owning a Jeep so much fun as not every vehicle on the market offers the versatility and capabilities of a Jeep vehicle.
