The 2022 Wagoneers - Now with Fighter Jet Technology

Yes, it's true. An information display technology available on the new 2022 Wagoneer and 2022 Grand Wagoneer was originally designed exclusively for fighter aircraft. Called Head-Up Displays (HUDs), these unique video display systems project information directly on the windshield so the driver can see critical operational data while driving and not take their eyes off the road.

According to Stellantis, HUD technology was first made available in a Jeep in the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX as an optional full-color display HUD system. Customized through the Driver Information Digital Cluster (DIDC) and the on-board Uconnect touchscreen system, it offers four display modes: Simple, Standard, Advanced, and Custom.

What does a HUD image look like?

Your windshield is a curved sheet of glass and you can see images that are projected off-axis on it. If you project some small, bright images on the glass that don't interfere with the view outside, that's what a HUD looks like. The picture at the top of this article illustrates a HUD in action.

How do HUDs work?

The technology behind HUDs varies. Some cars use transparent phosphors on the windshield that glow when a semi-conductor laser diode shines up on it. When the laser is off, you don't see anything, but when laser turns on, small dots glow on the windshield itself. Other HUDs incorporate mirrors to actually project LCD images up on the windshield.
