Vehicle safety is a top priority for everyone and the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4 has accomplished that feat for the fourth year in a row by earning (yet another) five-star overall safety rating from the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Five stars is the highest possible rating in NHTSA’s vehicle-evaluation program.
The 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee was tested on its performance of a frontal collision with another vehicle, a side impact with another vehicle and a side impact with a pole. The vehicle earned five stars in each test.
In addition to the standard safety strategy of the 2017 Grand Cherokee, the vehicle also features some of the latest crash-avoidance technology to take things up a notch. The Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) system, called Full-speed Forward Collision Warning with Crash Mitigation is one of our favorites. This system uses cameras and radar technology to detect and warn the driver of an oncoming frontal collision; if the driver fails to respond, the brakes are automatically applied. Though the AEB system is a preferred technology of NHTSA, it does not have an impact on the overall safety rating of the vehicle.
