Jeep® Active Drive The Jeep® Active Drive system is fully automatic and delivers seamless
transition in and out of four-wheel drive, at any speed.
This system requires no driver intervention,
delivers yaw correction during dynamic events,
and improves both understeer and oversteer conditions.
Jeep® Active Drive Low The Jeep® Active Drive Low system builds on the Jeep Active Drive
system and affords a 20:1 crawl ratio for genuine 4x4 capability.

and the Trailhawk™ model features the "Rock" Selec-Terrain™
function to maximise wheel traction and improve grip.


Hill Descent Control (HDC) enables smooth and controlled hill descent on rough or slippery terrains without the need to touch the brake pedal. When activated, the vehicle will descend steep grades using the ABS brake system to control the speed of each wheel to ensure optimal pace and momentum.
