Eleven Chrysler Group Vehicles Earn an IIHS Top Safety Pick

28 Dec

Eleven 2012 Chrysler Group vehicles — up from nine 2011 models — earned a Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Senior VP for Engineering Scott Kunselman said the IIHS ratings for the 11 vehicles “underscores our commitment to engineering safety and security across all vehicle segments.”

Among the latest safety innovations that are standard or available on many models is SafetyTec, which includes ParkSense rear park assist, Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path detection.

The 11 vehicles with IIHS Top Safety Picks:


• Town & Country (right)
• 300
• 200 (only 4-door models)


• Grand Caravan
• Durango
• Charger
• Journey — named a Top Safety Pick for the fourth straight year
• Avenger — named a Top Safety Pick for the fourth straight year


• Grand Cherokee
• Patriot (with optional side torso airbags)


• 500 (made after July 2011)

Of note for our Chrysler T&C and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans is that each received strength-to-weight ratio ratings of 4.51, which was among the highest of the minivans tested and above the IIHS requirement of 4.0. The U.S. government’s minimum requirement is 1.5.

Stop by the Pomoco dealership of your choice to check out the IIHS Top Safety picks for yourself.
