The safety of your family is of the utmost importance to you, so when you start looking for a new car, you want confidence that your vehicle can protect you should the unthinkable happen. Therefore, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) exists to give you the confidence and assurance that your vehicle is road worthy.

The team at Grava Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram believes in making sure you’re fully informed when it comes to your car-buying experience. So, if you’re in the Medford, Malden, and Everett, Massachusetts, areas, give our Jeep Cherokee safety ratings overview a read.

Insurance Institute of Highway Safety Testing

The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety, or IIHS, grades a vehicle’s body structure on a 4-letter system from Poor to Good. The higher the grade, the better the vehicle performed in the safety tests, which include frontal and side crashworthiness.

The IIHS also grades individual safety features on a scale from Basic to Superior. This does not measure the inherent safety of the feature, but, rather, its efficiency and how it works in conjunction with your driving to affect the overall safety rating of the vehicle.

Now that we’ve explained the rating system, let’s get into what that means for the Jeep Cherokee.

Jeep Cherokee Safety Ratings

The IIHS grades crashworthiness on six factors:

  • Small overlap front: driver-side and passenger-side
  • Moderate overlap front
  • Side
  • Roof strength
  • Head restraints and seats

In all these tests, the Jeep Cherokee was awarded a Good rating, the highest rating available from the IIHS.

This means that in all the collision tests, the Jeep Cherokee’s frame held up well under the stresses of a standard vehicle-to-vehicle collision. The head restraints and seats also helped to protect the driver and passengers from more serious injury in the event of an accident or roll over.

This means that no matter where your adventure takes you, the Jeep Cherokee can help keep you and your family safe, even if the unthinkable should happen.

Jeep Cherokee Safety Features

There’s also the matter of the Jeep Cherokee’s driver-assistive systems. The IIHS gave the available Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking system a Superior rating. This feature is a part of the ProTech II safety package that is available on the Limited, Trailhawk, and Overland trims. It also comes standard on the High Altitude, Summit, SRT, and Trackhawk trims.

This feature uses camera and radar technology to assess the distance between your Jeep Cherokee and the vehicle in front of you and alerts you if a collision is a possibility. If the alert is ignored, the feature has the ability to brake the vehicle in the interest of safety.

This is great for those traffic-filled commutes when the light changes a little quicker than you were expecting.
