Experts at TheCarConnection.com note that the 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee aces most frontal-impact crash tests, but side impacts and rollover protection are less satisfying.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in frontal impact crash tests, gave Grand Cherokee Jeep five stars out of five, but only three for rollover resistance. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awarded the 2008 Jeep its highest rating of "good" for front and rear collisions; the Grand Cherokee Jeep received only a "marginal" rating for side impacts.

ConsumerGuide lists standard safety equipment on the 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee as including "anti-lock brakes, skid control system with rollover mitigation, and side curtain airbag." Reviewers note the rear backup camera and park-assist system are great options to help avoid fender benders in the 2008 Jeep.

ConsumerGuide also remarks that Grand Cherokee Jeep's "visibility is a bit cluttered to the right rear, and thick windshield pillars hinder seeing around some corners."

Conclusion

The 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers good safety for occupants with a five-star frontal crash rating, but side impacts are a concern.

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.
