5-Stars for 14" Grand Cherokee!

Just notice that the Grand Cherokee manufactured from 22 July 2014 have been awarded 5 Stars by NHTSA (4WD models only). It now scores top marks in frontal crash test, early 2014 model scores 4 Stars in frontal crash test..

Just wondering what Chrysler/Jeep did to enhance the safety of the vehicle.. I watched the crash test videos for early 2014 model and late 2014 model and really could tell the difference..

Re: 5-Stars for 14" Grand Cherokee!

It is for all (2WD & 4WD) built after July 22nd, not just 4WD.

See the list here 2011 & Newer - Search Results | Safercar -- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)

Clicking on each option will show the videos.

Re: 5-Stars for 14" Grand Cherokee!

I wonder what they have changed mid year model to achieve the 5 stars?

Re: 5-Stars for 14" Grand Cherokee!

Early 2014 (In this video says 5 star but its error)




Late 2014 After July 22nd

OK got it, thank for the correction


Chrysler/Jeep must of did something significant enough for the NHTSA to test the vehicle again in the same model year..

Re: 5-Stars for 14" Grand Cherokee!

Seriously what changed? They both looks like the same model and should have all the same build materials. Is red paint that much safer than the grey or whatever color is in the first video?

The grey one looks like it crushes just a tad bit more.. not sure though

Re: 5-Stars for 14" Grand Cherokee!

I can’t hear this on work computer, but it may explain a bit more.
this was published July 15, so 7 days before the update.

Re: 5-Stars for 14" Grand Cherokee!

That white dash looks rather nice

No sound to this video at all

Re: 5-Stars for 14" Grand Cherokee!

To me the major difference seems to the the seat, the remarks with the pre 2014 not getting 5 stars was with the structure of the front seats.

The seat in the GC with 5 stars rating seems to move forward a lot less compared to the other "older" GC .
