The Jeep Cherokee's sales figures reveal an SUV that's popular with consumers. One or two features alone aren't enough to drive up approvals. A model must come packed with excellent and appealing features to get positive reviews. The Jeep Cherokee presents many things worth thumbs up. The safety features are among them.

Drivers are vulnerable when backing up. The line of sight comes with too many limitations. The Cherokee's advanced ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera lends a valuable assist. Drivers shouldn't rely 100% on the camera, but checking out the monitor display fills in blanks about what's behind the vehicle.

Steel-frame construction and several airbags deliver support if a crash does occur. Durability adds to safety, and the steel frame is durable. Crashes can be unavoidable, so these construction and safety features are valuable.

The Jeep Cherokee's features come to life during a test drive. If you live near St. Thomas, come by the showroom at Elgin Chrysler Ltd. to book a test spin.
