2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk Parallel Parks Itself
This post is a follow-up to the Perpendicular Park post from a day or two ago. This uses a lot of the same technology for the perpendicular park and it totally takes a lot of the fear out of one of the hardest things to do while driving a vehicle! Check out our video.
It saved us from wrecking while we were backing up. Also, it stopped itself! Pretty much all the driver has to do is activate the feature and turn the turn signal on so it looks for the space. Once it has it it chimes to let you know that it’s found it. Then you just put the vehicle in reverse and it does it’s thing! Pretty sweet technology! After driving this Trailhawk for a while it’s beginning to remind me of futuristic vehicles such as the ones I saw years ago while watching “iRobot” or something similar. Really cool technology and it makes the vehicle so much safer!
Speaking of safety… coming next is our post/video on the ParkSense and Rear Cross-path detection. Let’s see if this vehicle really IS one of the safest on the market: John “Fudd” McLean is going to attempt to back the car into me with his feet up on the dash so he has no POSSIBLE way to brake the vehicle manually!!!
Hope to post again soon! [scary!]
