Front and rear crumple zones help absorb energy and redirect it away from passengers. Seven airbags—multistage driver and front passenger airbags, side-curtain airbags, front seat-mounted side airbags and a driver-side inflatable knee bolster airbag—help ensure that you and your passengers will stay secure.
The available Blind Spot Monitoring System helps you make safer lane changes by alerting you when a vehicle enters your blind spot zone. Sensors scan approximately one lane over on each side. When a sensor detects a vehicle in the blind spot zone, and your turn signal is activated, the system will alert you with an illuminated icon in the corresponding exterior mirror along with an audible chime.
With the available Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist, Grand Cherokee can practically park itself. Once it identifies a suitable parking space, the system directs the driver with audible instructions that also appear in the Driver Information Cluster Display. The driver controls the gear position, brake and accelerator while the guidance system controls the steering wheel.
To help make parking easier, every 2018 Jeep® Grand Cherokee features ParkSense® Rear Park Assist and the ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera. When the vehicle is shifted into reverse, ParkView displays a rearview video image with dynamic gridlines on the Uconnect® touchscreen. A dashed center line overlay indicates the center of the vehicle to assist with parking or aligning to a hitch/receiver.
