Jeep Grand Cherokee Failed To Impress In IIHS Test

By  | 

The worst rating a vehicle can get from IIHS is the “Poor” rating and the Jeep Grand Cherokee is one of the models that scored themselves that rating.

According to IIHS, the Jeep Grand Cherokee showed a high risk of injury to the front passenger during their passenger-side small overlap front crash test. This test is done at 40mph and is used to simulate what will happen to a vehicle if it strikes an immovable object.

The test resulted in 10inches of intrusion at the lower door hinge pillar and the front passenger crash test dummy’s head hit the dashboard through the front airbag. The side curtain airbag also failed to deploy and the door opened.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is not the only model that received the Poor rating from IIHS. The other model that failed miserably was the Ford Explorer while models like the Kia Sorento and Volkswagen Atlas received a “Good” rating. The highest rating you can get from IIHS.
