Looks like a future to be used when you are drunk to keep you in the road.
Never drink and drive - don't waste your money for it....

With the torque and sensitivity at the lowest settings, did it seem like it would still be useful without being too intrusive? I like the part that it gives an audible warning if it senses no hands on the wheel.

I posted some new info in some other thread here (maybe in 2017 feature thread).. So this is partly a repeat in case you missed it.

Like I said a couple posts back in this thread I have not received any audible warning yet. I can't keep my hands off the wheel long enough for it to do so (if it does). Because it often over corrects sending you to the opposite side and then it's too steep of an angle for it to correct and then just shuts off.

I really don't consider lane assist as a "safety feature" and I don't think it's really advertised as such.

We travel about 120 miles one way every weekend to a lake. On the way home Sunday night I can never make it all the way back and my wife takes over. This past week we left later than we ever do. 11PM to head home (usually leave around 7-8PM). I thought for sure she'd have to take over after 30 minutes. I made it the whole way home !! That just never happens. I even waterskied that day and that usually wipes me out by evening.

I had the Lane Assist on Max. I really think the lane assist was the reason. My understanding now is it's purpose is to lower driving fatigue (constantly and subtly helping you stay in your lane). Even though sometimes it feels like it's more work to override it frequently. The Net result is it requires less "work" to get from point A to B. So in that sense you might consider it a safety feature because you are just not as warn out driving. But the chances of this ever saving you from accidental drift is pretty darn low.

So I'm more optimistic about lane assist than I was. But I completely misunderstood it's purpose going in. More miles will tell.

I've seen an ad for another vehicle (Infinity or something) where 5 drivers driving 5 cars back to back climb out of the sun roof on the highway and jump onto a flat bed. With ACC and Lane Assist keeping them going. There is NO way the jeep could do this. Even if you disabled hands on wheel etc. It might possibly do it if the lanes were the perfect width (narrower than normal). So it would gently bounce between the two lines constantly correctly itself. Jeep is VERY sensitive about "giving" up if you cross the line too quickly.

That answers my question. I read a number of people saying it was heavy handed, but nobody posted what settings they were at. Thanks!

I had it on Normal on my earlier posts but wanted to try Max on this trip home.

It really is not jarring on any setting. It's more just being startled by any input when you are not used to having any.

In some ways having it on higher setting is less surprising because it kicks in so often.

Finding that "fact" on the web is oddly VERY sparse. But it is out there if you look around.

Most references talk about fatigue detection but not fatigue reduction.

Re: Lane Departure Warning (LDW) with Lane Keep Assist 2

Just bought my 2017 Summit from Koons this past weekend. Drove it home nearly 800 miles.

I've never had a car with this kind of technology before, but with Lane Keep Assist + Adaptive Cruise Control I can say without question that these features reduced driving fatigue tremendously for me. In fact, between Clarksburg, WV and Chicago, I only stopped once to use the restroom and fuel up, and that included quite a bit of driving on Route 50 through the mountains.

I got home with sufficient energy to mow the lawn, reorganize the garage, and go out to watch the Bears game. On drives of this length prior, I'd be exhausted at the end of the day.

Yea, that's quite a stretch of windy, up and down, switchback highway for parts of Rt 50 for sure!!! I've gone that way a few times to/from Parkersburg and the DC area. 'Glad you like your new JGC!!

Re: Lane Departure Warning (LDW) with Lane Keep Assist 2

Little disappointed that the obviously questions were not asked here. Is this system comparable to auto pilot, must you have your hands in the wheel at all times? Will it steer the car and change lane with a turn signal bump? By autopilot I'm thinking Tesla? Or the new merc technology? I can keep my car in the lane easily enough. But an intergraded autopilot would be worth a deeper dive for me. If I have to keep my hands on the wheel and feel constant bumps and vibrations under my hands I wouldn't consider this an expense worth pursuing. So. Can you actually cruise down the highway with your hands off? When are you prompted to take the wheel back??

Re: Lane Departure Warning (LDW) with Lane Keep Assist 2

No, it is not anything like autopilot.

Jeep can keep you in lane for a while with hands off until it start warning to put you hands on the wheel. Works like most lane assists.

Autopilot will complain too. But it can do more.

I would guess Jeep would have called it "autopilot" if it could do all those things.
