Jeep has been a household name when it comes to off-roading vehicles. The 2023 Jeep Wrangler is no exception, as it continues to be a reliable and rugged choice for those looking for an all-terrain vehicle.
Apart from its impressive performance, it also boasts advanced safety features that offer better vision and an improved driving experience. One of these features is Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path Detection.
Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) is an active safety feature that detects and alerts you when a vehicle is in your blind spot zone. This feature works by using radar sensors located in the rear corners of the vehicle.
This gives you an additional set of eyes, so you are not only relying on your mirrors to know what’s around you when driving on the highway or busy roads. The radar sensors scan the blind spot areas, and when they detect another vehicle, they will trigger an alert in the side mirror or digital cluster, depending on the Jeep Wrangler model.
On the other hand, Rear Cross Path Detection (RCPD) monitors the rear of the vehicle for any incoming vehicles that cross behind you. The radar sensors work similarly to BSM but focus on the rear of the vehicle.
This feature can be helpful when backing up in crowded parking lots or when reversing out of a driveway onto a busy street. RCPD is particularly useful when backing out of perpendicular parking spaces in a busy mall or downtown area. The system will alert you when it senses traffic crossing behind you, making sure you don’t back up into another car or pedestrian.
With the inclusion of the latest features in the 2023 Jeep Wrangler, it is clear that Jeep is continuously striving to improve the driving experience of its clients. If you’re looking for a powerful and safe off-roading vehicle, contact the finance department at Energy Dodge today for a quote!
