Jeep vehicles have made a name for themselves for their off-road capabilities. But how do you truly know if the Jeep vehicle you’re interested in can handle any weekend excursion? That’s where the Trail Rated® badge comes in.

This badge signifies a vehicle’s ability to handle the rigors of a variety of off-road terrains and situations. Let’s take a closer look at how a vehicle earns the honor of the Jeep Trail Rated® badge.

5 Tests to Becoming Jeep Trail Rated® 


The first step to earning the designation of Trail Rated® is displaying a high level of traction. Every Trail Rated® vehicle can conquer many different terrains, weather, and driving conditions. Feel confident on the road no matter what you come across.

Water fording

Don’t let a body of water hold you back from your explorations. Every Trail Rated® vehicle can traverse almost any creek, stream, or deep puddle. You won’t have to worry about the vehicle malfunctioning, thanks to seals on all electrical connections and body openings. The air intake is also positioned higher on the vehicle than usual.


When you travel the path less taken, you need to know your vehicle has the maneuverability to safely navigate over or around obstacles. Precision steering and optimized wheelbases allow Trail Rated® vehicles to nimbly travel through trail switchbacks, avoid narrow gaps in the trail, and more.


Vehicle articulation refers to the ability to keep as many tires on the ground as possible when traversing rough terrain. When it comes to Trail Rated® vehicles, you can rest assured that they have maximum suspension flexibility. This means that they can handle deep potholes and more.

Ground clearance

With high ground clearance, Trail Rated® vehicles put ample space between the underside of the automobile and the trail. You can encounter and tackle large rocks, logs, and more without the fear of vehicle damage.
