2019 Jeep Wrangler
Currently available on the 2019 Jeep® Wrangler SUV, and Ram 1500 full-size light-duty pickup, and recently introduced on the 2020 Jeep® Gladiator midsize pickup truck; all three vehicles now come with an option to add the Integrated Radar Camera Module or IRCM.
“FCA, working closely with its Tier 1 suppliers, integrated the camera and radar into one module behind the rearview mirror,” says Phil Jansen, Head of Product Development, FCA North America.
This innovative approach could promise potential savings on repairs, provided collision damage does not affect the windshield. A recent AAA study puts the cost of some grille-mounted radar sensors as high as $1,300.
Such component integration also simplifies the interface that connects camera and radar.
In addition, equipping the all-new Jeep Gladiator, as well as the redesigned Wrangler and Ram 1500 with the IRCM paid dividends, unique to each.
