Top Safety Pick

Rear parking sensors and a backup camera are optional, and collision-warning and blind-spot monitoring systems are bundled together in an option package for Limited and Overland trims.

We’re expecting good things from the 2011 Grand Cherokee in the crash tests yet to come from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The agency hasn’t tested the new Jeep yet, but the industry-funded Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has—and it’s named the Grand Cherokee one of its Top Safety Picks for 2011.

The Cherokee has the requisite list of standard safety gear, including dual front, side, and curtain airbags; traction and stability control; anti-lock brakes with integral trailer-sway control; and rough-road detection logic. Hill-start and hill-descent help are programmed into its stability systems, and active headrests are standard, too. 

Safety options include parking sensors and a rearview camera; blind-spot detectors; adaptive cruise control; and a collision-warning system that senses when the SUV is approaching cars ahead too rapidly and sounds a warning.

Visibility is impressive in the airy Grand Cherokee. The hood’s shaped to give a good sense of the front corners, and the pillars are thin and let the driver gauge the rear quarters well.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
