The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), an insurance industry lab which tests vehicles for safety, has given the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Grand Cherokee L its highest rating, Top Safety Pick+.
The standard automatic emergency braking, which includes pedestrian detection, was rated advanced in the daytime and superior, the highest rating, at night.
For headlights, the Grand Cherokee with high-beam assist was rated “good,” the highest headlight rating. The highest possible rating was also given for small-overlap front impacts on both sides, moderate overlap front impacts (original test), and side impact (updated test).
The Top Safety Pick+ rating requires an acceptable or good grade in lighting on all trims. The premium LED reflect headlamps achieved an acceptable rating, moving to good with high-beam assist.
Optional features include intersection collision assistance, which detects vehicles moving on the other road of a crossroad; and drowsy driver detection, which tracks drowsiness based on driving inputs.
