Are Jeeps Safe?

Drivers looking for an all-purpose vehicle that provides style and performance both on-road and off-road generally look first at a Jeep, but how good are its safety features? Jeep SUVs carry advanced 4×4 capabilities that also include security features most drivers require. Let’s explore these highly-capable safety options!

Overview: Jeep Safety Features

  • LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist: A highly responsive Lane Departure Warning System warns the driver that the vehicle is drifting out of its lane and makes the necessary corrections to re-center the vehicle.
  • SOS Call and Assist Buttons: The SOS Call and Assist buttons are located on the rearview mirror and connect the driver to a Public Safety Answering Point in order to request either emergency or roadside assistance.
  • Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking: This system detects when the vehicle is moving towards a stationary object too fast and engages the brakes automatically if the driver fails to react quickly enough.
  • ParkSense® Rear Park Assist System: Sensors positioned around the vehicle aid the driver in parking correctly and avoiding bumps and scrapes with other parked cars.
  • ParkView® Rear Backup Camera: The rear backup camera, together with the Uconnect®touchscreen, makes short work of hooking up a trailer or reversing into tight parking spaces.
  • Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path Detection: Blind Spot Monitoring alerts the driver when a vehicle enters the “blind zone”, while Rear Cross Path Detection warns when an object crosses into the vehicle’s path behind the driver.

Jeep 4×4 Systems

Most Jeep models, including the Cherokee, all carry a Trail Rated® badge, which identifies the vehicle as a pinnacle of off-road safety. Features such as responsive traction and sufficient ground clearance highlight their amazing performance. Also, Jeep 4×4 systems such as Command-Trac® or Jeep Active Drive Lock, mean that you can safely travel off-road without fear of major problems from:

  • Mud
  • Gravel
  • Snow
  • Rock
  • Sand
