Cherokee Standard Safety Features

2021 Jeep Cherokee SilverThe Cherokee is well equipped with safety features that protect you from the front, rear, and sides. Forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking is standard, which alerts you to possible frontal collisions and applies the brakes automatically if you don’t react quickly enough. Lane-departure warning with lane-keep assist is also standard, which alerts you if you drift out of your lane and applies steering corrections to gently guide you back.

Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert rounds out the standard advanced safety features. This feature alerts you if there’s a vehicle approaching your blind spots from the sides or rear when changing lanes or backing up. Other standard features include a rearview camera and rain-sensing windshield wipers.


Cherokee Optional Safety Features

2021 Jeep CherokeeSeveral safety features are available as options for the Cherokee. You can add automatic high-beam headlights, which turn on automatically in low-light situations. Having automatic high-beam headlights also minimizes the chances of distracting another oncoming driver with glaring lights. Automatic park assist, a feature that provides steering adjustments and alerts to guide you into a parking spot, and front and rear parking sensors are also available.

Another available feature is adaptive cruise control. Unlike conventional cruise control, which allows you to set a speed that you have to adjust as traffic patterns change, adaptive cruise control lets you set a distance from the vehicle ahead. The system automatically adjusts your traveling speed to maintain a safe distance and stay with the flow of traffic.
