OVER 70 AVAILABLE SAFETY AND SECURITY FEATURES
Beneath the surface of the Jeep® Grand Cherokee lies a world of safety and security systems that give you confidence behind the wheel and help protect you and your passengers.
PASSIVE SAFETY AND SECURITY
Front and rear crumple zones help absorb energy and redirect it away from passengers. Seven airbags—multistage driver and front passenger airbags, side-curtain airbags, front seat-mounted side airbags and a driver-side inflatable knee bolster airbag—help ensure that you and your passengers will stay secure.
ACTIVE SAFETY AND SECURITY
Driver assist systems alert and aid you in challenging driving situations. Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop are just two of several available systems.
BLIND SPOT MONITORING
The available Blind Spot Monitoring System helps you make safer lane changes by alerting you when a vehicle enters your blind spot zone. Sensors scan approximately one lane over on each side. When a sensor detects a vehicle in the blind spot zone, you can program it to alert you with an illuminated icon in the corresponding exterior mirror and an audible chime.
Getting your vehicle in and out of parking spaces can be challenging. The Grand Cherokee is available with systems designed to help make it easier.
PARALLEL AND PERPENDICULAR PARK ASSISTAlways look before proceeding, electronic drive aid is not a substitute for conscientious driving always be aware of your surroundings
With the available Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist, Grand Cherokee can practically park itself. Once it identifies a suitable parking space, the system directs the driver with audible instructions that also appear in the Driver Information Cluster Display. The driver controls the gear position, brake and accelerator while the guidance system controls the steering wheel.
PARK ASSIST SYSTEMS
The ParkSense® Front and Rear Park Assist Systems6 help you park and back out with ease. The system uses sensors located in the fascia/bumper that determine the relative distance to a nearby object. When an object is detected, visual and audible warnings alert you, giving you time to react. This system is included in the available Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist Package.
PARKVIEW® REAR BACK UP CAMERA
To help make parking easier, every 2017 Jeep® Grand Cherokee features the ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera. When the vehicle is shifted into reverse, ParkView displays a rearview video image with dynamic gridlines on the Uconnect® touchscreen. A dashed center line overlay indicates the center of the vehicle to assist with parking or aligning to a hitch/receiver.
ADDITIONAL SAFETY AND SECURITY FEATURES
Electronic Stability Control coordinates Electronic Roll Mitigation, antilock brakes and all-speed traction control to help maintain control. These systems monitor steering input and vehicle motion. When a difference is detected between your intended path and the vehicle’s actual path, the brakes are applied and engine torque reduced to help your vehicle maintain directional control.
