Safety is very important for Jeep, especially in its home market, considering the US still represents its largest resource of clients. So a five-star NHTSA rating could help a car like Jeep Grand Cherokee lot in protecting its reputation. 

One of the most popular Jeep models indeed received a five-star rating from NHTSA, after a frontal collision with another vehicle, a side impact with another vehicle, and a side impact with a pole.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4 earned top marks, five stars, the highest possible rating, in each test.

The 2017 Grand Cherokee comes with more than 70 available safety and security features. Among its standard-equipment items are: advanced multistage, driver and front-passenger air bags, advanced side-curtain airbags, advanced supplemental front-seat side airbags and a driver-side inflatable knee bolster.

Available on the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee is an Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) system called Full-speed Forward Collision Warning with Crash Mitigation.

If camera and radar agree that a frontal impact with another vehicle appears imminent, the system pre-fills the Grand Cherokee’s brakes and transmits audible and visual warnings urging the driver to react. If there is no driver response, the system triggers a brief brake application as a tactile alert.

If the driver remains unresponsive and frontal collision risk remains, the Grand Cherokee’s brakes are applied to slow the vehicle before impact. The system may bring the vehicle to full stop if an imminent frontal collision is detected at speeds below 25 mph.

NHTSA acknowledges AEB as a preferred technology, though its benefits are not factored into the agency’s ratings.

This marks the fourth consecutive year the Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4 has earned a five-star safety rating from NHTSA.
