How do the Jeep Grand Cherokee’s Active Safety Features work?
Seeing as the Jeep Grand Cherokee has always been designed to take on more than just your standard city street or stretch of highway, safety has always been an especially important aspect of the SUV. It was engineered, and is built with safety in mind, so if something does happen to go awry, the Grand Cherokee can keep you and your passengers protected. What really sets the SUV apart, however, are not its passive, but its active safety features that can keep an accident from occurring in the first place.
Before we get into some details on how these features work, let’s first look at all of the revolutionary active safety features that you will find in the available safety packages of the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Jeep Grand Cherokee Active Safety Features
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Blind-Spot Monitor
- Forward Collision Warning
- Front Automated Emergency Braking
- Front Parking Sensors
- Lane Departure Warning
- Lane Keeping Assist
- Parking Assist
- Rear Cross-Traffic Monitor
- Rear Parking Sensors
All of the features listed above are controlled by sensors that are strategically placed around the vehicle. As they are in the front, back and sides, absolutely everything is covered. They can tell you when a vehicle is following too closely, or if you are going to hit something when backing up, and they can also warn you of vehicles in your blind spot, or when your vehicle starts to stray from its lane. Perhaps the best of the features, however, comes courtesy of front sensors that can sense when you are coming up too closely on another vehicle or object. After warning you, the vehicle can automatically brake for you.
