Active Drive I vs. Active Drive II
What are the differences between Jeep Active Drive I and Active Drive II? The Active Drive I 4×4 system includes a rear axle disconnect feature that engages when necessary to improve efficiency. It also comes with the standard Brake Lock Differential and the Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System for added capability.
Jeep Active Drive II includes all of the features of the Active Drive I 4×4 system, plus a low range, which helps during low-speed traction, and Neutral Mode, which allows you to flat tow the vehicle behind an RV.
Which 4×4 System Do I Need?
Your decision entirely depends on your driving style. For ultimate off-roading, we recommend the Jeep Active Drive Lock system. If you’re a casual trail-rider, the Jeep Active I or II systems are your best options.
