The passenger compartment of the 2022-2023 JeepGrandCherokee remained stable in the frontal offset test. Protection was good for all critical body areas of both the driver and passenger. Jeep demonstrated that good protection would also be provided to the knees and femurs of occupants of different sizes and to those sitting in different positions. Analysis of the deceleration of the impact trolley during the test, and analysis of the deformable barrier after the test, revealed that the car would be an aggressive partner in a frontal collision and it was penalized accordingly. In the full-width rigid barrier test, protection of the chest of the rear passenger was marginal, based on dummy readings of chest compression. Otherwise, protection was good or adequate for both occupants. In both the side barrier and side pole tests, all critical body areas were well protected and the GrandCherokee scored maximum points in this part of the assessment. Control of excursion (the extent to which a body is thrown to the other side of the vehicle when it is hit from the far side) was poor. The GrandCherokee does not have a counter-measure to mitigate against occupant to occupant injuries in such impacts. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated marginal protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric analysis of the rear seats indicated good whiplash protection. The GrandCherokee has an advanced eCall system which alerts the emergency services in the event but lacks a system to prevent secondary collisions.
In both the frontal offset and side barrier tests, good or adequate protection was provided to all critical body areas for both child dummies. The GrandCherokee automatically disables the front passenger airbag when a rearward-facing child restraint is put in that seating position. Tests showed that the system worked robustly and it was rewarded. All of the child restraint types for which the JeepGrandCherokee is designed could be properly installed and accommodated in the car.
