2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Safety and Reliability

Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Reliability Rating

2021 Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Safety

When you're in a family vehicle capable of 180 mph, a good safety rating is very important. In the NHTSA's review of the regular Jeep Grand Cherokee, the SUV achieved an overall rating of five stars. At the IIHS, the Trackhawk was also not independently tested but the regular SUV was. However, things were less promising here, with the 2020 model's small front overlap crash test on the driver's side being rated as Marginal, the second-worst rating possible. On the passenger side, the rating was Poor, while all other aspects besides headlights (Acceptable at best) were considered Good.

2021 Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Key Safety Features

Despite rather middling reviews of its safety, the Trackhawk should be a secure vehicle in most incidents. This is thanks to a suite of seven airbags that include frontal, side-impact, curtain, and driver's knee airbags. You also get forward collision alert with autonomous emergency braking, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane-keep assist, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, parallel/perpendicular parking assistance, and adaptive cruise control. While BMW, Porsche, and Mercedes-AMG offer many more features, a great number of these are often optional.

2021 Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Reliability

As you can imagine, building an engine with over 700 horsepower on tap is quite a complex endeavor. Thus, reliability is something that you don't want to be worrying about. Fortunately, the 2021 Trackhawk has thus far been recall-free. However, the identical 2020 variant was subject to a single recall in April of the same year for a lingering rearview camera image that would remain on the display even after shifting into a forward ratio.

Warranty coverage for the brutish Jeep is pretty good with a basic three-year/36,000 mile warranty complemented by a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. You also get roadside assistance for the same time period/mileage that the powertrain is covered for. Finally, three years of complimentary scheduled maintenance is thrown in along with a five-year/unlimited-mileage corrosion warranty.
