2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4×4 Safety Ratings and Features
Whether engineering vehicles or buying them, nothing could ever be more important than safety. That’s why the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, or NHTSA, spends so much time putting vehicles through a grueling ratings process. Achieving a 5-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA is not easy, but that is exactly the rating received by the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4×4 thanks to a number of safety features.
Before we talk about some of those safety features, it’s important to understand just how difficult it is to get a 5-star rating. The NHTSA examines vehicle safety in areas like frontal collision with another vehicle, a side impact with another vehicle and a side impact with a pole. The Grand Cherokee 4×4 managed to receive 5-star ratings in each one of these crash tests.
2017 Grand Cherokee 4×4 Safety Technologies
Some of the Grand Cherokee’s safety qualities come from its engineering and design, but advanced technologies also play a large roll. In fact, the Grand Cherokee 4×4 has more than 70 available safety and security features. But even before you add optional equipment, the vehicle comes standard with advanced multistage driver and front-passenger air bags, advanced side-curtain air bags, advanced supplemental front-seat side air bags and a driver-side inflatable knee bolster.
For further peace of mind and safety capabilities, the 2017 Grand Cherokee 4×4 can also be equipped with more advanced technologies. For example, the model is available with an Automatic Emergency Braking system that uses sensor-fusion technology to detect objects ahead of the vehicle and apply the brakes if there is a lack of driver response.
Best of all, this is the fourth consecutive year that the Jeep Grand Cherokee 4×4 received a 5-star NHTSA safety rating, so whether you’re buying new or used, you’ll be able to find a vehicle you can feel safe in here at Parks Motors.
