Each Avenger's drive system has six modes to choose from: "Normal" for everyday driving, "Eco" to boost range, "Sport" for more driving enjoyment, "Snow" for the best possible traction on snowy roads or trails, "Mud" to optimize performance and traction in mud, and "Sand" for sandy soil. In addition, Jeep claims excellent approach and departure angles.
Level 2 autonomous driving, which automatically adjusts speed and lane for Jeep's first production electric vehicle, is among the driver assistance features.
