Comments
Front impact
Structures in the dashboard represented a potential hazard to the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. Protection of the driver's chest was weak.

Side impact
Although the car was eligible, Daimler-Chrysler did not choose to sponsor a pole test.

Child occupant
The labels warning against using a rearward-facing child restraint in the front passenger's seat were not always visible and were not permanently attached to the vehicle. The presence of the ISOFIX anchorages in the rear outboard seats was not clearly indicated.

Pedestrian
The Jeep Grand Cherokee scored no points for pedestrian protection and has been awarded zero stars in that category.
