While in real life he would have been almost liquified when he hits the ground, 99% of the stuff that happens to Chev throughout the film would have killed him. At the end, when he falls out of the helicopter, bounces off a car, then rolls to a stop in front of the camera, bloodied, not moving with his eyes open; the last second of the film we see him blink and hear his heart beating. This is telling us his heart is unstoppable and he will be back in Crank 2: High Voltage.
While the theatrical version of "Crank" was rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), at least in Germany there's another version of the film available. Looking at the differences (which can be found here), one can clearly categorize it as a director's cut. Up to this point, it is not available in the US.
