Tech tricks that help the Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator stay on top
Jeep’s Wrangler SUV and Gladiator pickup both offer unique tech that is so specially designed. They seem primitive but are still super modern. Engineers have specially redesigned a good number of its features so that they can maintain their rugged nature without failure.
Below are four of their most interesting tech tricks
The Driver assistance tech
The radar sensor unlike normal cars is not placed inside their front grille or lower bumper for a Jeep Wrangler or Gladiator that fords up to 30 inches of water.
The radar unit for these automobiles is convinently placed directly in front, behind the windshield and in front of the rear-view mirror which allows only positive impacts.
With the eight-speed automatic transmission system, their ACC works across their entire speed range. Furthermore, the rear-view camera resides inside the hub of the spare tire and wheel holder.
The standard Wrangler comes with Bluetooth and a 5-inch touchscreen. Other models however, like the Rubicon and Sahara have 8.4-inch systems that features everything similar to modern automobiles, like, embedded navigation, Apple play, a 7-inch TFT instrument cluster display, Wi-Fi capability, Android Auto and satellite radio with real-time traffic information.
The Wrangler and Gladiator also go the extra mile and allows you to call up Off-Road Pages on their infotainment screen. In addition, the Wrangler provides up to seven USB ports, three of which are USB Type-C.
Electronics that work even when they are wet
So far, we have come to understand that the Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator are duely loaded with electronics and things that work hand-in-hand with electricity can't mix with water right? So the question now is, how are the Wrangler's and Gladiator's very complex electronics engineered to hold up as these vehicles ford up to 30 inches of water?
The simple answer is that manufactures strike line right down the vehicle and make sure anything below the line is water friendly and above is water-resistant.
Top-down with a quickness
One awesome thing about the new Jeep Wrangler is the presence of the Sky One-Touch power top which is available on four-door Sahara and Rubicon models. It is like a retractable fabric roof-top that gives owners enough wind-in-the-hair thrill.
As a result of its fabric roof that does not open directly into the way of rushing air, the Touch system can be operated at up to 60 miles per hour.
