When choosing the right SUV for your family, safety is a top concern. The solidly built GMC Acadia easily outperformed the Jeep Grand Cherokee in IIHS crash testing thanks to a number of important features:
- 2017 GMC Acadia: Acadia drivers enjoy access to features like pre-crash front safety belts that tighten to restrain the driver and front passenger if an imminent collision is detected. The Acadia also offers a standard center front seat airbag for protection and an optional Surround Vision system that provides a 360-degree composite view of the area surrounding the vehicle, making it easier to avoid obstacles when backing and parking.
- 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee: The Grand Cherokee isn’t equipped with pre-crash pretensioners or a front center airbag, which could lead to serious injuries in the event of a front-end collision. While the Jeep does offer drivers a rearview camera for safe backing, the vehicle cannot be equipped with a surround view system, making it difficult to see hidden dangers to the side of the vehicle.
GMC’s dynamic Acadia provided drivers with more power and better control than Jeep in testing:
- 2017 GMC Acadia: The Acadia can be equipped with a potent 3.6L DOHC V6 powerplant that offers access to 310 hp and 271 lb.-ft. of torque. In Motor Trend testing the Acadia did a good job of controlling that power too, thanks to front and rear vented disc brakes that brought the vehicle to a full stop from 60 MPH in just 126 feet.
- 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee: The Grand Cherokee’s 3.6L engine offers up just 295 hp and 260 lb.-ft. of torque and, in the same Motor Trend tests, the solid rear disc brakes required an additional 12 feet to stop the SUV, putting passengers at greater risk of injury in a collision.
