US Legal RHD Vehicles For Sale - Jeep

RHD Jeep. New and Legal in the USA


A lot of people probably don't know, that it is possible to buy a brand new, USA legal, Right hand vehicle.  Checking on Autotrader, they have 310 Jeeps listed as RHD.

The Jeep above is pretty unique. Pink wrap, right hand drive. Not sure exactly who will buy that but someone out there probably needs it.

There is nothing specifically in the FMVSS(Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards) that talks about the position of the driver, they just say that there must be standardized controls and displays. This is another one of those things I see repeated by people with no real knowledge of the US rules and regulations.

People get the import laws, title, registration, individual state regulations mixed up. It all is confusing.

Some examples of vehicles manufactured in compliance with FMVSS are right hand drive garbage trucks, and mail cars.Vehicles over 25 years old are NHTSA exempt from Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.

We occasionally here people say that right hand drive is not legal in the US, as you can see above it is legal, they even still sell brand new RHD cars in the USA.
