The Jeep Grand Cherokee has been awarded the maximum five-star safety rating after excelling in ANCAPs crash-test program, industry website Autonews reports today.
The Grand Cherokee scored highly in all crash-test scenarios, including a perfect 16 out of 16 in ANCAPs side-impact test. The impressive results, combined with its 60 available safety and security features, ensured the Grand Cherokee was awarded ANCAPs highest rating.
ANCAP brings welcome news to consumers with all V6 variants of the Jeep Grand Cherokee now able to claim five-star status, ANCAP Chief Executive Officer, Nicholas Clarke said.
The rating which applies to every V6 Jeep Grand Cherokee from March 2013 onwards - follows the Jeep Cherokees five-star ANCAP rating, while Jeeps Patriot was awarded the maximum five-star safety score in 2014.
FCA Australias Director of Marketing and Product Strategy, Zac Loo, said:
We couldnt be happier with the Grand Cherokees performance in ANCAPs crash-test program.
This five-star rating follows the Grand Cherokees equally impressive five-star result in Americas NHTSA crash-test program, and is all down to the tireless work of our engineers who strive to make every model as safe as possible.
We know how important safety is to families when deciding on a vehicle, and this result means further peace of mind for our customers.
