Safety

The 2011 Grand Cherokee is a 2010 Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. To earn the designation, it received Good overall scores in IIHS' frontal-offset crash test, side-impact crash test, roof-crush test and whiplash-prevention test. The final requirement for the award is the availability of an electronic stability system, which is standard in the Grand Cherokee.

Additional standard safety features include antilock brakes, side-impact airbags for the front seats, side curtain airbags for both rows and active front head restraints. Rear parking sensors and a backup camera are optional, and collision-warning and blind spot monitoring systems are bundled together in an option package for Limited and Overland trims.
