Top Safety Features of the Jeep Grand Cherokee
Jeep continues to strive to make all their vehicles, including the Grand Cherokee, as safe as possible. With a smooth ride, excellent off-road capabilities, and the latest safety equipment, this SUV is one of the most capable in its market segment. With over 70 safety features and security systems available, the Jeep Grand Cherokee offers a confident driving experience whether you head down the highway or on an off-road adventure. Here are just a few of its available safety features.
Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path Detection
The Jeep Grand Cherokee comes standard with a blind spot monitoring system with rear cross path detection system. It uses radar sensors to detect vehicles in the driver’s blind spot. The system will provide both an audible and visual alert if it senses another vehicle traveling in a hard-to-see place. The rear cross path detection system warns you when it detects a vehicle crossing behind you when backing up.
Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop
The available adaptive cruise control system will automatically adjust the speed of the Grand Cherokee to keep you a certain distance from the car in front of you. You select the range before you start your trip, and even when traveling in traffic, the system will automatically keep you from getting to close to the car up front. It can even bring the vehicle to a complete stop if needed without any input from the driver.
Full Speed Forward Collision Warning With Active Braking
Even if you don’t see a crash coming, the full-speed forward collision warning system will. This feature uses radar to sense a potential front impact. It will warn you using both visual and audible alerts, and if you don’t respond, it will automatically put on the brakes.
LaneSense Lane Departure Warning With Lane Keep Assist
The LaneSense system also uses a system of cameras and radar sensor to make sure you stay in your lane. It first establishes the on-road position, and if you drift from this position, it will visually warn you and provide a slight introduction of torque from the power steering. The system will provide a second warning if the Grand Cherokee drifts too far, and if the driver does not correct, it will automatically move the vehicle back into the lane.
Parallel parking is not easy, but if it’s the only option and you don’t feel comfortable getting in the spot, the Grand Cherokee can practically do it for you. When you engage it, the system controls the steering wheel and provides audible and visual instructions for the brake, accelerator, and the gear position. This parking system will also help with perpendicular parking, so even you find yourself in a tight parking garage or busy street, you know the Grand Cherokee will safely get you into a parking spot.
The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee has both active and passive safety systems to make sure you stay safe both on and off the road.
