Here's the 2016 Jeep Cherokee's Safety Rating

 

The 2016 Jeep Cherokee has just been awarded a four-star safety rating from the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The star rating applies to both the front and all-wheel drive variants and is a welcome addition to the many other selling points of this SUV.

 

The Cherokee was awarded four stars in the front crash test and rollover test and five in the side impact test. Thanks to a very efficient design and numerous safety enhancements, the 2016 Jeep Cherokee is now rated as a very safe car to drive. With technologies such as blind spot monitoring, antilock brakes and electronic stability control on offer, there is every reason to feel confident when driving the vehicle.

 

2016 Jeep Cherokee

 

We covered the 2016 Jeep Cherokee in detail last week, but in case you missed it here are the highlights.

 

The new Cherokee design is polarizing. Some will love it while others may not. We think it is the tidiest and subtlest design so far. It keeps the character of the Jeep with the signature grille, but tones it down a bit for the modern buyer. The headlights give the SUV a slightly mean look which is softened by the rest of the design.

 

Under the hood is a 2.4-litre four cylinder engine that’s good for 184 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque. There is also a 3.2-litre V6 that delivers 271 hp and 329 lb-ft of torque. Both use a nine speed automatic transmission to send power to the front or all wheels.

 

As you would expect, there are a couple of rugged 4x4 options to make the 2016 Jeep Cherokee really off road capable. Jeep Active Drive I and Jeep Active Drive II and Jeep Active Drive Lock offer different options depending on how rough you plan on treating it. All are capable off road, so there won’t be many places you cannot go!

 

There are five trims, Sport, Latitude, Altitude, Limited and Trailhawk. All 2016 Jeep Cherokee are well equipped, with everything from cruise control, power steering, power accessories, hill start assist, navigation and many safety features on offer.

 

The 2016 Jeep Cherokee continues a long and illustrious career as our go-to SUV for outdoor pursuits. We can travel in style and still carry people, cargo or tow a jet ski. It has everything the modern SUV buyer could need and more.
