2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee Safety and Reliability

Jeep Grand Cherokee Reliability Rating

2023 Grand Cherokee Safety

Looking at the old Jeep Grand Cherokee, there was loads of room for improvement in the safety department. The IIHS gave the previous model a marginal and a poor rating in two important categories, though the NHTSA gave it a full five-star safety rating.

Unfortunately, there are no reviews of the Jeep Grand Cherokee yet from either the NHTSA or the IIHS. We have no doubt that it will happen if only so Jeep can start over with a clean slate.

2023 Grand Cherokee Key Safety Features

All models are stacked with driver assistance features. Jeep deserves praise for this, considering the Grand Cherokee is essentially a family car, but it should be noted that Jeep was late to the party in this regard, and many rivals have been adding these features for a while now.

As standard, all models get trailer-sway control, tire pressure monitoring, hill start assist, traction and stability control, a rearview camera, LATCH anchors, and seven airbags including a driver's knee airbag. The list of driver assistance features starts with adaptive cruise control, a rearview camera, and rear parking sensors, but also includes full-speed collision warning and automatic braking with pedestrian/cyclist detection. More than this, lane-keep assist, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert all feature, while Summit models add drowsy driver detection, automatic parking assist, and traffic sign recognition. Front parking sensors are standard from the Overland trim.

2023 Grand Cherokee Reliability

The Grand Cherokee started with a clean slate in 2022. Even more so since this is an all-new platform not shared with anything to have come before it. There have been no recalls for 2023 or 2022 so far. Unfortunately, Jeep has a bit of a reputation when it comes to customer complaints and recalls. A vehicle will usually receive a few recalls at the start of its lifecycle, and it will eventually drop down to zero as the manufacturer makes constant improvements. Even though the previous-generation Grand Cherokee was more than a decade old, the 2021 model was still recalled for an iffy rearview camera and owners having difficulty activating the high beams.

Jeep has made a point of selling the Wagoneer twins with a premium experience that includes dedicated aftersales service, so let's hope this new premium Grand Cherokee comes with a premium dealership experience to match.

Jeep includes a three-year/36,000-mile limited warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty as standard. As an added bonus, customers also get a three-year complimentary scheduled maintenance plan. The latter should go a long way toward improving the Jeep ownership experience.
