Jeep will offer autonomous off-road driving in its 4×4 trucks

It is incredible how from a technological point of view, automobiles have evolved by leaps and bounds in the last decade. And the most impressive thing is that the revolution in the years to come will be greater than the revolution taking place now. Among the various elements of a car that have been and will be worked on the most is one that has become very relevant both in terms of safety and because of its complexity in operation: autonomous driving.

While this ability for a vehicle to drive itself is based on the congregation of safety systems that are available in a large number of models today, the next step is to achieve the least interference from human driving. And it is that the higher the level of autonomous driving, the more comfortable the handling becomes, but also the safer, the reason being that most accidents on roads and highways are caused by human error.

Faced with this situation, many car manufacturers are working to achieve a higher level of driving to provide maximum safety. But because driving doesn’t just happen on roads, streets and highways, some companies like Stellantis are going a step further than the rest by developing advanced off-road autonomous driving technology.

Clearly being a brand focused on off-road driving, like Jeep, the automaker is working on the development of the first autonomous driving focused off-road driving. Before being integrated into Jeep models, this automated offroad driving technology is being evaluated in a series of prototypes by a team on Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Driving at Stellantis in Moab, Utah, United States.

Installed on two Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xes, this innovative AI-based drive can enhance the experiences of both experienced off-roaders and new 4×4 drivers while helping with day-to-day driving. With this innovation, Jeep builds on its leadership in off-road electrification with the expansion of its 4xe vehicle lineup, automated off-road driving capability.

Just as 4xe electrification takes Jeep’s off-road capability to new levels, advanced off-road drive systems help make driving safer. Jeep is expected to debut this generation of its advanced autonomous off-road driving technology in 2024 or no later than 2025.
