The Trail Rated® Jeep® Cherokee Trailhawk® has proven its exceptional capability under a variety of weather and road conditions. The five key areas of Trail Rated testing are traction, water fording, maneuverability, articulation and ground clearance.

TRACTION 

Available Jeep® Brand 4x4 systems help to ensure the right tire has traction when it’s needed. 

WATER FORDING 

High air intakes and special water sealing help get you through water obstacles when driving off-road. 

MANEUVERABILITY 

Exceptional maneuverability allows you to steer around or crawl over obstacles like rocks, logs or tight spots. 

ARTICULATION 

Articulation helps you climb over large obstacles and maintain contact with the terrain.
