When a Jeep® is given a Trail Rated® badge, it isn’t just for show. It isn’t a simple statement that this vehicle will probably get you through a snowy day in Alberta. When a Jeep® is awarded its distinctive Trail Rated® badge, that distinction is very much earned. Each Jeep® model proves its worth on the Rubicon Trail—19 kilometres of gruelling terrain that every Jeep® model faces as a testing ground. When a Jeep® Conquers the raging rivers, brawny boulders and the rest of the gauntlet of the Rubicon Trail, only then is the Jeep awarded the merit of Trail Rated®. If you’ve been fooled by misconceptions by this honourable distinction, take a second to realize that any Trail Rated® Jeep® is essentially half machine, half American Ninja Warrior. Who wouldn’t want one of those sitting in their driveway? If you’re wondering how exactly a Jeep® rips through the Rubicon with such ease, let us tell you.
Traversing steep slopes without proper traction could lead a vehicle to its doom. Thankfully, Trail Rated® Jeep® vehicles have enough traction to take on mud, snow, sleet, rock, or whatever else nature can dish out.
Jeep® models are able to take on several depths of water that other vehicles wouldn’t dare dream of. Electrical connections, body openings and the air intake in Jeeps are all positioned higher so vehicles can submerge deeper without damaging integral equipment.
A Jeep® isn’t just all power, every Trail Rated® vehicle also has a dash of finesse in the form of precision steering and handling. It’s that touch of finesse that gets a Jeep out of a dire situation in a pinch.
The extra space allotted by Trail Rated® ground clearance means that no terrain is off-limits. There’s plenty of room between the ground and the undercarriage to take on rocks and logs at every angle.
That Sounds Amazing, But What If I’m Just a City Driver?
Having the best off-road capability may not be for everyone at first glance, and that’s ok. But realize that the city has its own fair share of obstacles. Edmonton has its own gruelling tests of winter, year-round construction areas and worn roads with deep potholes. The idea of a proven vehicle that can take on the roughest of conditions, doesn’t sound so bad at all. Of course, own your own Trail Rated® Jeep® from your friends at Southtown Chrysler!
