Available features include: Blind-spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path detection, ParkView rear backup camera with dynamic grid lines, electronic stability control (ESC) with electronic roll mitigation and four standard air bags.

Standard and available safety and security features on the all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler include:
  1. Active turn signals: Turn signal flashes three times when stalk is depressed for one second to indicate a lane change
  2. Adjustable head restraints: Helps limit movement of occupant's head during a collision.  Can be adjusted to accommodate driver’s height
  3. Advanced multistage air bags: Selects an inflation force appropriate to the severity of an impact. Meets FMVSS 208 advanced air bag requirements for smaller, out-of-position occupants
  4. All-speed traction control system: Part of the standard anti-lock brake system (ABS), helps keep driving wheels from spinning during acceleration from a stop or during all speeds by applying individual brakes alone or in combination with engine torque limitation to prevent wheel slip
  5. Anti-lock brake system (ABS): Senses and helps prevent wheel lockup, offering improved steering control under extreme braking and/or slippery conditions
  6. Anti-lock brake system with rough-road detection: Anti-lock brake system is capable of detecting if the vehicle is driving on a rough road by the oscillations in the wheel speed signals. When rough road is detected on off-road surfaces or trails, ABS enters a different wheel slip control where it will allow more wheel slip to build up surface material in front of the wheels
  7. Auto-dimming rearview mirror: Auto-dimming mirror automatically reduces glare from bright light allowing the driver to have a clearer view of the road ahead
  8. Automatic headlamps: Headlamps turn on and off automatically depending on exterior light levels and when the windshield wipers are turned on or off
  9. BeltAlert: Activates a chime and/or illuminates an icon in the instrument cluster to remind the driver and front passenger to buckle up if a vehicle is driven without belted front-seat occupants
  10. Blind-spot Monitoring (BSM): Uses dual narrow band radar sensors to aid the driver when changing lanes or if being passed by or passing unseen vehicles. The system notifies the driver of vehicle(s) in their blind spot via illuminated icons on the side-view mirror and with a driver-selected audible chime
  11. Brake-lock differential system (BLDS): Allows the vehicle to maintain forward motion if up to three wheels lose traction by selectively and aggressively applying brakes to the spinning wheels
  12. Brake-throttle override: Allows driver to stop the vehicle quicker, when throttle and brake inputs occur simultaneously; electronic throttle control reduces engine-power output until vehicle stops or pedal inputs cease
  13. Brake/park interlock: Prevents the transmission from being shifted out of “Park” unless the brake pedal is applied
  14. Center high-mount stop lamp: Illuminates when brakes are applied; makes the vehicle more visible in traffic
  15. Child-protection rear door locks: Disables the rear doors’ inside-release handle by adjusting a small lever on the door-shut face
  16. Child seat anchor system: LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) designed to ease installation of compatible aftermarket child seats

Also shuts off flow of fuel to the engine
  22. Electronic brake-force distribution: Assists the driver to optimize stopping distances and control under all vehicle loading conditions by regulating braking pressure front-to-rear
  23. Electronic roll mitigation (ERM): An extension of electronic stability control (ESC). Uses input from ESC sensors to help anticipate if the vehicle may be at risk of entering a potential roll situation, then applies the brakes individually and modulates the throttle position as needed to reduce the potential of a vehicle rollover
  24. Electronic stability control (ESC): Enhances driver control and helps maintain directional stability under all conditions. Provides the benefit in critical driving situations such as turns, and is valuable when driving on mixed surface conditions including snow, ice or gravel. If there is a discernible difference between driver input through the steering wheel and the vehicle’s path, ESC applies selective braking and throttle input to help guide the vehicle back onto the driver’s intended path
  25. Energy-absorbing steering column: The steering column has a tube-in-tube construction that absorbs energy by allowing one tube to move relative to the other. It also employs a calibrated bending element that deforms during column stroke for enhanced energy management
  26. Energy management system: Three front load paths designed from high-strength steel manage vehicle crush and minimize cabin intrusion
  27. Express down windows: One-touch powered express down window button located on the instrument panel

  37. Height-adjustable seat belts (front-row): Outboard seat belts feature height adjustment, allowing the seat belt to be placed comfortably for drivers of all sizes
  38. Hill-start Assist (HSA): Assists drivers of vehicles equipped with manual transmissions when starting a vehicle from a stop on a hill by maintaining brake pressure for a short period of time after a driver’s foot is removed from the brake pedal. If throttle is not applied within that short period of time after the driver’s foot is removed from the brake pedal, brake pressure will be released
  39. Hill-descent Control: This feature allows the all-new Jeep Wrangler to descend steep grades with minimal driver input
  40. Hydraulic boost compensation: In the event of loss of brake booster vacuum, additional brake boost pressure will be supplied by the ESC hydraulic pump to help maintain normal braking assistance
  41. Intelligent battery sensor (IBS): Continually measures the flow of current into and out of battery; if the battery is running low, the system shuts off less-critical electrical systems to conserve power; an icon in the cluster denotes activation
  42. Keyless Enter-N-Go: When an individual enters the vehicle, electronic sensors detect that the vehicle key fob is present. The vehicle will then allow the individual to push a button to start the vehicle without having to insert a key into the ignition
  43. LED headlamps: Provide enhanced light output than conventional halogen reflector lamps for improved nighttime illumination
  44. LED tail lamps: Provide dual-function illumination (brake, stop, turn and running light functions); light-emitting diode technology ensures light output is consistent throughout the tail lamp
  45. Electric Vehicle Tracking System (EVTS): State-of-the-art GPS-enabled stolen vehicle recovery system. EVTS includes nationwide tracking including 24/7 emergency service dispatch, security fence, arrival/departure notification, excessive speed notification and trace maps of past locations (in selected markets)
  46. Occupant restraint controller: Detects an impact and, in frontal collisions, determines whether frontal air bag deployment is appropriate and whether the primary or secondary stage inflation is appropriate.  In addition, the controller detects side impacts and determines whether the side seat-mounted (thorax protection) air bags should deploy. Activation of front seat belt pretensioners and adaptive load limiters are also managed through the controller
  47. Panic brake assist: Assists the driver to minimize stopping distances in a panic braking situation by building and maintaining the maximum brake pressure even when the driver does not apply maximum pressure to the brake pedal
  48. ParkSense rear park assist system: The system utilizes ultrasonic sensors at low speeds in reverse to detect stationary objects. If the system determines that a collision is imminent then it will provide a momentary, autonomous brake apply/brake jerk then release. At speeds below 7 km/h the system will bring the vehicle to a stop before releasing
  49. ParkView rear backup camera: Provides a wide-angle view of the area immediately behind the vehicle, giving the driver greater peace of mind when driving in reverse at low speeds. Contains dynamic grid lines to aid the driver when maneuvering into parking spaces or narrow areas. Also aids in lining up a trailer to the vehicle’s trailer hitch, when so equipped. The image is displayed on the navigation screen when the transmission is shifted into Reverse
  50. Rain brake support: Uses the ESC system to occasionally push the brake pads lightly against the brake rotors in rainy conditions in order to keep the rotors dry
  51. Ready Alert Braking (RAB): Anticipates situations when the driver may initiate an emergency brake stop and uses the ESC system to set the brake pads against the rotors in order to decrease the time required for full brake application
  52. Rear Cross Path detection: In parking lot situations, this system warns drivers backing out of parking spaces of traffic moving toward their vehicle. It activates any time the vehicle is in Reverse. The driver is notified of vehicle(s) crossing behind the vehicle via illuminated icons on the side-view mirror and with a driver-selected audible chime
