IIHS

Editors at TheCarConnection.com are impressed by some safety ratings awarded to the 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee—but side-impact ratings are disappointing.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awards the 2009 Jeep its highest rating of "good" for front and rear collisions; the Grand Cherokee Jeep receives only a "marginal" rating for side impacts. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in frontal impact crash tests, gives Grand Cherokee Jeep five stars out of five, but only three or four stars for rollover resistance.

Reviewers note the rear backup camera and park-assist system are great options to help avoid fender benders in the 2009 Jeep. ConsumerGuide lists standard safety equipment on the 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee as including "anti-lock brakes, skid control system with rollover mitigation, and side curtain airbag."

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

Conclusion

The 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers decent safety and security, but it’s not top in its class.

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.
