Jeep Grand Cherokeee Safety

The Jeep Grand Cherokee has been  awarded the maximum five-star safety rating after excelling in ANCAP’s crash-test  program. The Grand Cherokee scored highly  in all crash-test scenarios, including a perfect 16 out of 16 in ANCAP’s  side-impact test. The impressive results, combined with its 60 available safety  and security features, ensured the Grand Cherokee was awarded ANCAP’s highest  rating.

“ANCAP brings welcome news  to consumers with all V6 variants of the Jeep Grand Cherokee now able to claim  five-star status,” said ANCAP Chief Executive Officer, Mr Nicholas Clarke.

The rating – which applies to  every V6 Jeep Grand Cherokee from March 2013 onwards – follows the Jeep  Cherokee’s five-star ANCAP rating, while Jeep’s Patriot was awarded the maximum  five-star safety score in 2014.

Commenting on the results, FCA  Australia’s Director of Marketing and Product Strategy, Zac Loo, said: “We  couldn’t be happier with the Grand Cherokee’s performance in ANCAP’s crash-test  program.

“This five-star rating follows  the Grand Cherokee’s equally impressive five-star result in America’s NHTSA  crash-test program, and is all down to the tireless work of our engineers who  strive to make every model as safe as possible.

“We know how important safety is  to families when deciding on a vehicle, and this result means further peace of  mind for our customers.”
