Side and Roof Strength

 

While the 2019 Jeep Cherokee has seen many changes and alterations, Jeep knew not to tamper with the sides of the vehicle that would affect its crashworthiness. The IIHS looked at both the 2014 and 2019 model when testing crashes to the side of the vehicle, since there were no changes made between the two models. The vehicle passed "good," the highest possible rating, not only for overall evaluation in the side of the vehicle, but also for structure and safety cage and driver injury measures. The 2019 Jeep Cherokee received a rating of "good" for driver head protection, rear passenger injury measures, and rear passenger head protection.

 

The roof of the 2019 Cherokee also received a rating of "good." For this test, an angled metal plate was pushed down on one side of the roof at a slow but constant speed. The force needed to crush the roof in comparison to the weight of the vehicle is known as the strength-to-weight ratio. In order to receive a rating of "good," the vehicle must be able to withstand a force of at least 4 times the vehicle's weight before the metal plate crushes the roof by 5 inches. The Jeep Cherokee's strength-to-weight ratio is 5.4, meaning it can withstand over five times the weight of the vehicle before the roof will only crumple by five inches.

Child Seat Anchors

 

The 2019 Jeep Cherokee also received a score of "good" for their child seat anchors. Not only does the Jeep Cherokee offer two rear seating positions with complete child seat attachment, it also offers one additional seating position with a tether anchor available. The test concluded that each seat offered an easy-to-find location for the tether anchors and no other hardware could be confused for the anchor. The lower anchors were also easy to attach and easy to maneuver.
