Why Jeep 4x4 Technology Is So Great


Off-roading in Illinois is always fun, but off-roading in a Jeep® 4x4 system is in a class of its own. Jeep® 4x4 technology has been designed to handle the harshest terrain and to make driving in bad weather fun. Get psyched for your next adventure in Dixon knowing Jeep® has your back.

Superior stability


Over the last 75 years, Jeep® has perfected its 4x4 system to support fearless drivers like you. It starts with finely engineered off-road differentials, making sure that your Jeep® SUV's power is where it's supposed to be.  


Power in the right place is only half the battle. Jeep vehicles combine brake power and electricity to increase traction when you're speeding through the mud. Rest assured, the electric systems are safely sealed to keep your Jeep® as dry as you are inside the cabin. The specially designed suspension system improves your clearance so you won't have to worry if you'll clear a rocky incline and can create a much smoother driving experience.

Ready to climb


Every day in Dixon is an adventure, and Jeep® knows that the best adventures take you to unexpected places. Starting with the basics, Jeep® created high-strength steel skid plates to cover the bumper and underbelly of its vehicles to withstand tough rocks and terrain. Available body-mounted rock rails help keep the body of your Jeep® in good condition, too.


Remember that you can go anywhere with Low Mode and its high crawl ratio. It provides plenty of torque to overcome steep angles.

Durable in danger


The exclusive Front Sway Bar Disconnect System allows you to automatically release the front sway bar in some conditions to keep your SUV from rolling over. Plus, Jeep® designed both the Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited as body-on-frame vehicles for the ultimate durability. Toughness like that keeps you out on the trail for longer so your off-roading excursion doesn't end.
