A higher gear ratio implies a larger speed reduction of wheels rotation, avoiding slippage and increasing off road capability and crawling.
Jeep® Active Drive I features a single power transfer unit (PTU) which is fully automatic and delivers seamless operation in and out of four-wheel drive, at any speed. The system does not require any driver intervention or feedback, and is ideal for those who want an SUV with an all-weather-capable 4x4 system that's easy to use. While the rear axle disconnect feature only engages the 4x4 system when necessary for improved fuel efficiency. It also offers balanced torque distribution with brake traction control. So how is it done? Possessing true Jeep® DNA, the outstanding four-wheel-drive performance results from a fully variable wet clutch housed in the rear drive module. The clutch supplies the right amount of torque for any driving condition, including slippery conditions, aggressive starts and dynamic driving. Sophisticated algorithms enable the system to contribute to the driving dynamics while interacting with the electronic stability control (ESC) system when approaching the traction limits of the road surface.
The Jeep® Active Drive II 4x4 system with low-range is ideal for extra low-speed traction. It also has Hill- descent Control for additional piece of mind on tricky winter hillsides. It also offers a neutral mode for flat towing. Active Drive II is the ideal 4x4 system for the challenging seasonal road conditions.
The Jeep Active Drive Lock 4x4 system is standard equipment on the Cherokee Trailhawk®. It has all the features of the Jeep Active Drive II 4x4 system, but also includes a rear lock and is Trail Rated®. A remarkable crawl ratio allows a more controlled throttle response when driving off-road. The Selec-Terrain™ traction management system includes: Auto, Snow, Sport, Sand/Mud and Rock modes for all-weather and off-road capability. The system also adds the advanced Selec-Speed control in off-road mode, which provides additional control.
