Jeep 4×4 Basics | Nothing to Stop You
When you buy a Jeep, you want a vehicle that is ready for adventure. Nothing stands in your way of fun and excitement, not even the end of the road! That is why it is important to understand the different options available for 4×4 vehicles.
Jeep gives you a total of eight options in 4×4 vehicles. Each option has different features and capabilities. For example, if you buy the Wrangler Rubicon or the Unlimited Rubicon, you can expect to get the Rock-Trac 4WD. This is ideal for rough terrain that includes rocks and other obstacles. If you prefer the styling of the Wrangler Sport or Wrangler Sahara or the Unlimited Sport or Unlimited Sahara, the Command-Trac I 4WD is standard. Just shift it into gear when you need to slow down over rough ground. It is also ideal if you like to tow your boat or jet-ski to the water.
The Grand Cherokee is a popular model for Jeep, but the 4×4 configuration you get depends on the model. Enjoy the Quadra-Drive II 4WD on the Overland for smooth driving in almost any conditions. For many models this is available as an option, but it’s the standard system for both the Overland and the Limited. It is designed for those that want 4×4 power all of the time. You can upgrade to the Quadra-Trac II on the Laredo, the Quadra-Trac I 4WD is standard for this model.
The Selec-Trac II 4WD is what you will find on the Jeep Liberty and it works to help you travel up or down steep grades with excellent traction. It is easy to access with just a flip of the switch in your console. Flip it off when it isn’t needed for optimal performance anytime.
The Freedom-Drive I and II 4WD is ideal for just about any off-road experience. The Compass and Patriot have the Drive I as standard with the option to upgrade in the Freedom Drive II Off Road Group.
