What to Know About Going Off-Road


Here at Victory Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM Ottawa, we know that half the fun of getting behind the wheel of new or pre-owned Jeep models is the off-road experience. That’s why we’re bringing you the tips and tricks that will ensure you and your vehicle are as safe as possible when taking on the tough trails and heading off the beaten path. And don’t forget to visit our auto service and parts center for the information and car care you need to adventure with peace of mind.

Before you head out on your off-road travels, it’s important to understand what your car is capable of doing and to make any necessary upgrades or additions. Look at the kind of traction system your vehicle has, like the Jeep Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System in the Jeep Cherokee, and make sure you understand the difference between four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive before you hit the rocks.

If you need special equipment, you’ll want to get it before you go. This includes a first-aid kit, fire extinguisher, winch, and belt cutter. A snorkel will help you take your Jeep in deeper waters, perfect for fording rivers and streams you may come across. Remember, too, that different road conditions require different car and driver skills, so look ahead to see if you’ll be hitting mud, snow, sand, dirt, rocks or flat roads.

When you’re ready to get behind the wheel of a 2019 Jeep Cherokee or Jeep Wrangler, make Victory Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM Ottawa your first stop. We’ll help you find the perfect vehicle and make sure it’s ready for whatever nature may throw at it. Visit us at 327 West 23 Street in Ottawa today so you can head out on your next adventure tomorrow.
