Jeep Wrangler gets another terrible crash test rating

Jeep Wrangler

The safety performance of the Wrangler is limited, falling well shy of the expected standard in three of the four key areas of assessment,” said Goodwin in a press release. “Chest protection was a concern for the driver and rear passenger in each of the frontal crash tests; a number of penalties were applied for structural deformation and potential leg injury hazards; and base variants lack autonomous emergency braking altogether.”

So how did the Wrangler fair in each of ANCAP’s categories? It racked up scores of just 50% in the Adult Occupant Protection segment, 49% in the Vulnerable Road User Protection category, and 32% in the Safety Assist rankings.

It’s unlikely these scores will have any effect on the Wrangler’s loyal fanbase, even though the JL-generation Wrangler hasn’t been tested by the IIHS and though the NHTSA hasn’t yet assigned the 2019 Wrangler an overall rating (though it gave the SUV a four-star front collision rating and a three-star rollover rating). Stay safe out there, yeah?
