So, are Jeeps safe when it comes to teen drivers? The following list of Jeep safety features confirms that Jeeps make for a great vehicle for all drivers:

  • ParkView® Rear Backup Camera – Backup cameras are crucial to preventing accidents. The ParkView® Camera also allows for easier backing into tight spots or for hitching up a trailer.

  • LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist – This Jeep safety feature lets you know if you’re drifting across the lane marker with auditory and visual warnings.
  • Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking – If the driver in front of you has slowed and you’re going faster than them, this system will warn you to prevent you from rear-ending the car in-front of you. This safety feature can be set to assist with braking in case you don’t react in time.
  • Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path Detection – This super convenient Jeep safety feature alerts you whenever another vehicle enters your blind spot. It’ll also notify you when a vehicle is approaching your Jeep whenever you’re backing out.
  • SOS Call and Assist Buttons – If you’re in need of emergency assistance, pressing the SOS Call button will instantly connect you to a Public Safety Answering point for emergency assistance. Pressing the Assist button will also allow you to speak to Georgetown-area roadside assistance.
