Jeep’s 4x4 systems

A 4x4 system or four-wheel drive (4WD) is a two-axle vehicle capable of generating torque, or a turning effect, in all the driving wheels simultaneously. Syntactically, a 4x4 system means a four-wheel vehicle that transmits engine torque to all four wheels or axle ends. World leaders in 4x4 technology, Jeep’s sophisticated 4x4 system technology has six key features on which it stands solid and helps you traverse any trail that comes your way.

Off-road Differentials to maximize power delivery to the wheels for increased traction.

    Front Sway Bar Disconnect System for improved vehicular articulation.
    High-strength Steel Skid Plates for tougher protection from boulders and jagged rocks.
    Body-mounted Rock Rails for additional protection while off-roading.
    Body-on-frame-design for strength, flexibility, and durability.
    Heavy-duty Solid Axles for a smoother and quieter driving experience.
