ANCAP 2018 5 star

The JL Jeep Wrangler was introduced in Australia and New Zealand in April 2019. The four door variant with a diesel engine was tested. The safety performance of two door and petrol engine variants is not expected to be significantly different to that of the tested four door variant, and this ANCAP safety rating therefore applies to all Wrangler variants.

Dual frontal and combination side airbags which protect both the chest and head of front seat occupants are standard. Headprotecting side airbags are not offered for rear seating positions. Autonomous emergency braking (AEB) is not standard, and therefore was not tested, but is available on some variants. A lane support system is not available.

Frontal Offset* 3.89 pts (out of 8)
Head/Neck 4 pts
Chest 0.44 pts
Upper Legs 2 pts
Lower Legs 1.33 pts

The passenger compartment of the Jeep Wrangler did not retain its structural integrity in the frontal offset test. Connection between the A-pillar and the cross facia beam was compromised, as was the footwell structure, and penalties were applied. Protection of the chest was WEAK for the driver and ADEQUATE for the front passenger. Structures in the dashboard were a potential source of injury for both the driver and passenger and protection of the upper legs was rated MARGINAL. Rearward displacement of the pedals was excessive and, in combination with the footwell rupture, protection of the driver’s feet was rated MARGINAL.

Child Protection Test

In the frontal offset test, protection of the 6 year dummy was GOOD for all critical body regions. Protection of the neck of the 10 year dummy was WEAK and protection of the chest was ADEQUATE. In the side impact test, protection of the head of the 10 year dummy was MARGINAL while that of other body areas of both the 6 year and 10 year dummies was GOOD. The Jeep Wranger is fitted with lower ISOFix anchorages on the rear outboard seats and top tether anchorages for all rear seating positions. ANCAP conducted its child restraint installation assessment on a two door Wrangler variant. Installation of typical child restraints available in Australia and New Zealand showed that most child restraints could be accommodated in.

Pedestrian Summary

The bonnet of the Jeep Wrangler provided POOR or ADEQUATE protection to the head of a struck pedestrian over most of its surface. Protection of the pelvis was GOOD at all test locations. Protection offerred to the legs was mixed, with areas of GOOD and POOR performance. Autonomous emergency braking (AEB) is available on some variants of the Jeep Wrangler, however the system is not standard and is not designed to react to vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists. The system was not tested.
