Jeep® Safety Technology

 

Modern automobiles are designed to perform and impress with aesthetic appeal. However, they also have highly innovative technology, especially when it comes to safety. The Jeep® Grand Cherokee is one of the most popular SUVs on the market, and its also known for its impressive list of safety features. At Fields Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM Asheville, we are proud to offer such an exceptional vehicle and want to provide drivers with some information about what it has to offer.

Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking

Rear-end collisions are the most common type of car crash in the U.S. according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), accounting for 35% of crashes every year. This available feature can help eliminate the risk of fender benders.

With radar and cameras, the car essentially has a sixth sense on when you are approaching slowed traffic. When the system becomes alert that you are approaching too quickly, you’ll receive an audible and visual warning. The system will also pre-fill the brake system for instant response. Should you not respond, it can apply braking as well.

LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist

Easing into another lane happens often for any driver, and if you aren’t paying attention, it could lead to a collision with another vehicle. With this available feature, you’ll receive a warning should you start to drift into the adjacent lane. The lane assist function automatically guides you back to your lane if you do not react in time.

Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path Detection

The standard Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) and Rear Cross Path Detection (RCPD) systems employ radars and sensors to detect vehicles in your hard-to-see places. When the system detects a vehicle entering your blind spot, you’ll be alerted via an illumination in the corresponding side mirror. When backing up, the RCPD warns you of vehicles approaching either side as you reverse.
