Safe SUVs For A Family:

The Jeep Grand Cherokee Earns 5 Stars From ANCAP   If you’ve been shopping for a sports utility vehicle, the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) is a great resource to help pick a safe SUV for your family. One of the highest rated vehicles is the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which earned a well-deserved five star rating. Crash testing is just part of it. The Grand Cherokee has more than 70 standard and available safety and security features.  

ANCAP Testing

ANCAP uses internationally recognised crash tests to replicate common accident conditions. To achieve the maximum 5 star ANCAP safety rating, a vehicle must achieve the highest standards in all tests and feature advanced safety assist technologies. Five different types of crashes are simulated under scientifically controlled conditions and their results are recorded. Crash test dummies help researchers determine the level of protection occupants would be afforded in the real world.  

How It Protects

The Grand Cherokee starts with seven airbags as a standard feature. Multistage driver and front-passenger airbags are augmented by side curtain, head and knee airbags. Standard crush zones in the front of the vehicle and side guard door beams also protect passengers. These crush zones absorb excess energy and decrease its transfer to occupants.  

Preventing The Crash

Protecting you from a crash is good. Keeping you from getting in the crash is even better, and the Grand Cherokee has a number of measures to prevent you from needing those airbags. The Forward Collision Warning uses radar sensors to detect when you may be closing too rapidly on another vehicle. The Electronic Stability Control coordinates Electronic Roll Mitigation, antilock brake system (ABS) and Brake Assist, all-speed traction control and available Trailer Sway Control. These systems all keep you on course and safely on the road. The vehicle monitoring system checks tyre pressure, displays vehicle alerts, and even gives you a graphic depiction of how your wheels are articulating. The Uconnect Voice Command lets you send, reply and read texts, request information and get navigation directions without taking your hands off the wheel.   Just click here to find a dealer near you or, if you already know where one is, you can book a test drive of the Jeep Grand Cherokee or another one of the safe SUVs for a family.
