In the USA, the National Road Traffic Safety Administration and the Road Safety Insurance Institute (IIHS) did not test the crash for Jeep Wrangler. However, IIHS changed the situation by publishing a video that tested the 2019-20 Jeep Wrangler against crashes. However, the results of the test are not very heartwarming.
Jeep Wrangler was subjected to three crash tests, one at Fiat Chrysler and two at the Vehicle Research Center of IIHS. In both IIHS tests, Wrangler rolled to the passenger side after hitting the test barrier, achieving an overall ‘Marginal’ safety rating in total.
IIHS notes that Wrangler performs well on driver-side collisions and the dummy model is well protected. However, lying on its side after the crash test and especially the Wrangler having a removable roof and doors were among the safety risks that increased the risk of passengers not leaving the vehicle.
During the Fiat Chrysler’s test, the Wrangler did not fall over. However, after Wrangler was overthrown in the first IIHS crash test, Fiat Chrysler questioned whether this was due to the way IIHS engineers connected the SUV to the crash drive system. The IIHS agreed to run a second test using a different method approved by Fiat Chrysler, but Wrangler again lay on its side.
Wrangler scored ‘good’ on the front, side, roof and headrest side in other crash test evaluations. However, Wrangler’s front halogen headlights and premium LED projector headlights have been poorly rated.
