Jeep® Cherokee Safety and Security Features

Drive with peace of mind. Safety comes as standard in the Jeep® Cherokee, with advanced technology designed to help keep you and your loved ones safe and secure at every turn.

5 Star ANCAP Safety Rated3

The Cherokee has been tested to keep passengers safe. High-strength steel creates a robust body structure that maximises crash protection and optimises vehicle dynamics and weight. Seven standard advanced airbags work in tandem to help provide protection to your family and friends.


Accident Avoidance Features

A variety of standard active safety features are designed to help keep your eyes on the road ahead.

Blind Spot Monitoring

Blind Spot Monitoring

The Blind Spot Monitoring system monitors the space between you and other drivers. Dual radar sensors detect when another vehicle is entering one of your blind spot zones.

If a vehicle is detected, you will receive an audible chime and visual warnings on the relevant exterior mirror.

LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning

LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning

If the driver doesn’t respond, LaneSense will help course correct the vehicle back into its lane.

Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking

Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking4

Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking uses radar sensors to detect if the Cherokee is approaching another vehicle too rapidly, alerting the driver with an audible chime. Pedestrian Emergency Braking is included in the Cherokee, helping to prevent any unexpected accidents. Advanced brake assist increases brake pressure if it senses the driver is not braking hard enough.

Rear Cross Path Detection

Rear Cross Path Detection

Rear Cross Path Detection helps you back out of parking spaces when vehicles block your view.

When you shift into reverse, sensors scan for vehicles and/or objects crossing your path and the system alerts you with a lighted icon in the exterior mirror.

Parking Made Easy

Getting your vehicle in and out of parking spaces safely is a challenge of the past. The Cherokee is available with three systems designed to help make it safer and more secure.

ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera

ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera

Maneuver into a parking spot easily with the standard ParkView®Rear Back Up Camera. The system displays a rearview video image with dynamic gridlines when you shift into reverse. With an on-screen alert or audible chime, ParkView will bring your attention to hidden rear objects.

ParkSense® Front and Rear Part Assist System

ParkSense® Front and Rear Part Assist System

The available ParkSense® Front and Rear Park Assist System utilizes four sensors located in the vehicle’s front and rear fascias. The integrated sensors will alert the driver if the vehicle gets too close to an obstacle behind or in front of it.

Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist

Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist5

Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist is an available advanced system that recognizes open parking spaces. With the push of a button, the guidance system steers the vehicle while it directs you to shift gears and operate the brake and accelerator.

Convenience Features

Jeep® Cherokee is equipped with a selection of dependable, available features designed to make your driving experience safer and more secure.

Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go

Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go1

Electric Stability Control

Electronic Stability Control (ESC) uses a network of safety sensors that help maintain vehicle control, providing instant aid should they detect you’re veering off your intended path. ESC corrects over- or under-steer. It works in tandem with Electronic Roll Mitigation to help reduce the possibility of a rollover.

Electric Stability Control
  • Disclaimers

    3. Applies to all variants with 4 cylinder engines

    4.  Drivers should not wait for Active Braking to be activated before braking. Braking effectiveness depends on proper brake maintenance and tire and road conditions.

    5. Do not exclusively rely on the Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist feature. Always look over your shoulder and use your mirrors to confirm clearance. System effectiveness depends on many factors. See Owner's Manual for details.
