Chrysler debunks Swedish magazine claim of Jeep Grand Cherokee rollover risks
The video that started this whole chain of events showed the hosts of Swedish magazine Teknikens Värld (Technology World) driving the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee in a test that they call the Elk Test. This test consists of driving the Grand Cherokee down a short course at 39.5 miles per hour when they simulate a drastic, sudden lane change maneuver. The video of the Grand Cherokee performing this test shows the popular Jeep ute quickly climbing onto two wheels before the driver makes the move to bring it back down onto all four wheels. The host of the video goes on to point out that the Jeep Grand Cherokee sold in Sweden and used in this test comes with 20” wheels, a rollover protection system and an advanced stability control system but after he proclaims that they do not work – he goes on to insist that Chrysler stop selling these vehicles in Sweden.
