Are Jeeps Safe?

2020 Jeep Gladiator

A new Jeep like the Jeep Wrangler or Grand Cherokee can provide a thrilling Homer City ride, but you may be wondering: are Jeeps safe? While this lineup boasts incredible power and efficiency, the brand supports these impressive capabilities with advanced off-road safety and 4×4 systems. If you’re looking for more protection behind the wheel of your next crossover or SUV, learn more about Jeep safety features and ratings with the help of the automotive experts at Tri-Star Indiana.

Highlighted Jeep Safety Features

If you’re wondering how safe you’ll be on Clymer roads with a Jeep crossover or SUV, take a look at the standard list of Jeep safety features you’ll have at your fingertips below:

  • ParkView® Rear Backup Camera: Combined with the Uconnect® touchscreen, this backup camera makes hitching a trailer or snagging parking spaces streets less stressful.
  • ParkSense® Rear Park Assist System: During parking, this system uses sensors to alert you to obstacles behind your Jeep.
  • LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist: If you begin to drift from your lane without signaling, this system will notify you and can correct steering to re-center the vehicle.
  • Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking: This system will warn you if you’re approaching a straight-ahead vehicle too quickly. If you don’t react in time, the brakes will automatically engage.
  • Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path Detection: BSM will notify you when a vehicle enters your blind zone, while RCPD will alert you to approaching vehicles as you’re reversing.
  • SOS Call and Assist Buttons: Located on the rearview mirror, the SOS Call button connects you to a Public Safety Answering point, so you can request emergency assistance. The Assist button lets you request roadside assistance.

Trail Rated Jeep 4×4 Systems

Another standout of the Jeep safety features is its 4×4 systems which have been put through the test and highly rated thanks to their incredible durability. That’s why you’ll see the Jeep Wrangler, Grand Cherokee, Cherokee, Compass, and Renegade all sport a Trail Rated® badge which indicates Jeep 4×4 vehicles can obtain better traction, water fording, ground clearance, and more when off-roading or driving in challenging conditions. You can find Jeep 4×4 systems available such as Command-Trac® or Jeep Active Drive Lock that enables you to seamlessly move through mud, on-road, gravel, snow, rock, and sand.

Jeep IIHS Crash Test Ratings

Along with a fully-loaded cabin that offers many advanced driver-assist and safety features, Jeep models have earned great crash-test ratings from automotive safety organizations like the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Take a look at the crash-test ratings it has provided for several Jeep models below:
