2014 Jeep Cherokee Earns Top Safety Pick Rating from IIHS

New SUV Not Yet Tested for Small Overlap Performance

Edward A. SanchezOct 30, 2013
Now that the hiccups in its transmission calibration have been worked out, the 2014 Jeep Cherokee is starting to roll into dealerships nationwide and can now add another accolade to its selling points: IIHS Top Safety Pick. The 2014 Cherokee earned a "good" rating in the side impact, front moderate overlap, roof-crush, and rear-collision tests, the highest rating the Institute gives. Sharp-eyed readers may note the new small front overlap test was not included in the rating, keeping the Cherokee from earning the coveted new TSP+ rating.
We contacted IIHS about this discrepancy, and IIHS senior vice president for communications Russ Rader said the organization has not yet scheduled the Cherokee for the small front overlap test, but plans on testing it sometime in 2014, giving the Cherokee the opportunity to earn the TSP+ rating if it scores "good" in the small front overlap test.
The small crossover segment has had mixed results meeting the small front overlap standard, with the 2014 Subaru Forester and Mitsubishi Outlander earning a TSP+ rating. The Toyota RAV4 got a "poor" rating in its most recent test in the small front overlap category, and the Honda CR-V received an only slightly better "marginal" ranking.
