The off-road front camera was designed to make life easier on the most technical trails and adventures. Using a wide-angle lens positioned in the center of the iconic Jeep seven-slot grille, it can be activated through the 8.4-inch Uconnect 4C multimedia system and allows the driver to see obstacles ahead even on the most closed or inclined trails.

Since any Wrangler isn’t afraid of mud, the off-road front camera has a built-in automatic washing system. When activated, a high-pressure water jet removes dirt such as mud and dirt from the lens, ensuring the best vision for the driver. It can also be used in conjunction with the rear camera and parking sensors to facilitate obstacles and maneuvers.

Another perk of the Brazilian market Wrangler is the autonomous driving assistance systems. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) increases travel comfort by automatically maintaining a safe distance from the vehicle in front. If the other vehicle brakes, the Wrangler automatically reduces speed and returns to the programmed speed as soon as the other vehicle leaves the lane or resumes acceleration.

The Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) system, constantly monitors the traffic ahead, alerting the driver to the risk of collisions. If there is no activity on the part of the driver, the AEB can brake the vehicle automatically, reducing damage in crashes or even avoiding minor collisions.

There are also the automatic high-beam headlights, which allow the automatic switching of the full-LED high-beam headlamps. It uses images from a camera positioned on top of the windshield to track traffic from vehicles in front of the Wrangler (in both directions). When proximity to a nearby vehicle is detected, the high beam of the headlights is automatically adjusted to avoid dazzling other drivers. This allows the driver to fully focus on the journey and have the best lighting in any situation.

The Rubicon Unlimited also features the Off-Road+ system. When activated, the system automatically adjusts the Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon to the terrain conditions. It operates in the main system, such as the accelerator, Selec-Speed control, traction control, and gear changes, in order to guarantee optimal performance for the terrain. If enabled in “4-HI”, it adapts operations to higher speeds in the sand. If enabled in “4-LO”, it sets the operation for low speed off-road.
