2014 Jeep Cherokee Named IIHS Top Safety Pick
Available more than 70 safety and security features and ten standard air bags, the 2014 Cherokee is part of Chrysler Group’s 14 vehicles to gain the Top Safety Pick award in the last 10 months. However, Jeep’s brand new crossover didn’t make it in IIHS’ exclusive Top Safety Pick+ group, that requires vehicles to pass the enduring front small overlap crash test.
“The all-new 2014 Jeep Cherokee represents the pinnacle of innovation in the mid-size SUV segment,” said Mike Manley, Jeep president and chief executive officer. “In addition to the breakthrough efficiency of its unique 4x4 system and the milestone introduction its 9-speed automatic transmission – a world-first – the Cherokee features a host of technologies that combine to deliver outstanding occupant protection. That kind of robust performance delivers on the promise of the Jeep brand.”
Along with the 2014 Jeep Cherokee, the IIHS also tested the 2014 Fiat 500L. The Italian MPV returned the same “good” ratings, adding to Chrysler’s rich list of Top Safety Pick vehicles.
