Article by Christian Andrei, on October 31, 2013

The all-new 2014 Jeep Cherokee has been named as a 2013 Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety. In the most recent bout of assessments, this SUV is just one of two vehicles by Chrysler Group to earn the honor. The all-new 2014 Fiat 500L, a ground-breaking four-door, B-segment hatchback, is the other Chrysler Group vehicle that was given this award.

The IIHS gave this commendation to a total of 14 models from Chrysler Group in the last 10 months.

The testing required for the Top Safety Pick recognition includes a side impact with a large SUV or pickup truck, roof-crush that could occur with a rollover, front moderate overlap impact, and a rear collision that may result to whiplash.

The all-new Jeep Cherokee had “good” ratings in all of these factors. Mike Manley, Jeep President and Chief Executive Officer, said that the all-new 2014 Jeep Cherokee has the most advanced features in the mid-size SUV segment.

Aside from the breakthrough efficiency of the one-of-a-kind 4x4 system and the momentous introduction its 9-speed automatic transmission (the first in the world), the Cherokee comes with a series of technologies that combine to offer excellent occupant protection. This type of outstanding performance “delivers on the promise of the Jeep brand.”
