There are different names for the safety feature that warns you about cars coming close to you as you're backing up. Jeep calls it "Rear Cross Path Detection," and it's on our JGC SRT8 (as well as most other JGCs). Basically, it's a modified rear parking sensor that beeps at you not only when an object is really close (as it you're going to run into it) but also if it detects a moving object (another vehicle) coming into your path. It's really useful in parking lots, particularly on vehicles with poor rearward visibility.

The JGC's got decent visibility, but I appeciate this feature just the same.
