PRLog - Feb. 18, 2011 - NEW BRITAIN, Conn. -- Sixty-six vehicles earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's Top Safety Pick award for 2011, five of which were Dodge, Chrysler, and Jeep models. Vehicles selected as a “Top Safety Pick” by the IIHS offer the most protection in the event of a side, front, rear, or rollover crash and are equipped with an electronic stability control system. Electronic stability control is a crash avoidance feature that significantly reduces crash risk by helping drivers remain on the road and in control. These IIHS ratings are designed to help auto shoppers make informed decisions regarding a vehicle’s overall safety.
The five Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep models to make the list were the all-new Chrysler 200, the Dodge Avenger, the Dodge Journey, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and the Jeep Patriot.
Carrying on Chrysler’s tradition of excellence, the all-new Chrysler 200 is a sleek, sophisticated, and safe sedan. The elegant and distinguished styling of the Chrysler 200 isn’t the only thing that’s going to make Hartford Chrysler shoppers smile, the price looks pretty good too.
The new 2011 Dodge Avenger model ups the fun quotient offering new exterior styling, an improved powertrain lineup, and of course an array of safety features. Hartford Dodge shoppers also love the new 2011 Dodge Journey. The new model is equally stylish and surprisingly efficient for a vehicle of its size and power.
The Jeep Patriot has become known as an affordable, compact sport-utility vehicle, delivering segment-leading capability to drivers along with unsurpassed fuel economy and safety. Hartford Jeep shoppers are equally impressed with the new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, a long time staple in the premium SUV segment.
Last year the Insure Institute for Highway Safety actually toughened the criteria for “Top Safety Picks” by adding the requirement that all qualifiers must earn a good rating for performance in a roof strength test to assess protection in a rollover crash. The move sharply narrowed the initial field of 2010 winners. As auto manufacturers reworked existing designs and introduced new models many more vehicles began to meet these new standards.
