The Jeep Grand Cherokee performs just respectably in crash tests, but it offers every safety feature that you'd expect today in an SUV.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awards the 2010 Jeep its highest rating of "good" for front and rear collisions; however, 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 2010 Jeep. ConsumerGuide lists standard safety equipment on the 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.
The 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers decent safety and security, but it’s not top in its class.
