How Safe is the 2021 Jeep Wrangler?

March 31st, 2021 by

We at the Desert 215 Superstore are really loving the 2021 Jeep Wrangler. We can’t get over how this highly capable machine not only boasts an array of impressive strengths, but it also maintains everything we love about the iconic Jeep model. It’s an excellent option for exploring the whole Las Vegas region and beyond, both on the road and off.

On occasion, we get questions about the Wrangler regarding its safety. After all, the model has a very unique design, and it can be unclear to customers how well it will respond in accidents and how safe it will keep them. How safe is the 2021 Jeep Wrangler?

2021 Jeep Wrangler Safety Features and Rating

The 2021 Jeep Wrangler is outfitted with an impressive array of standard safety features and optional driver-assists, in addition to boasting a solid build. Jeep has even devised some extra safety options that users can opt for to increase their security.

However, while the model earned a “Good” rating in most IIHS crashworthiness tests, it struggled in one area, which lead to the overall rating for the vehicle being lowered to “marginal.” The 2021 Jeep Wrangler is a unique machine that boasts many special strengths you won’t find elsewhere; however, this iconic design does have some risk that drivers should be aware of.

What safety features and driver-assists are included on the 2021 Jeep Wrangler?

The 2021 Jeep Wrangler comes with an array of standard safety features including driver front-impact airbags, passenger front-impact airbags, driver side-impact airbags, and passenger side-impact airbags. It’s also outfitted with standard electronic stability control.

The 2021 Jeep Wrangler does not come with any standard driver-assists, but several are available, including:

  • Blindspot Monitoring
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Automatic High Beams

In addition, Jeep has included some extra cool safety tech on the 2021 Wrangler. Such gizmos include an available SOS button that will automatically put users in contact with emergency services when activated. Jeep also flaunts the muscular design of the 2021 Wrangler, with its high-strength steel frame and rigid chassis, as a basis for a safe, secure experience.

How did the 2021 Jeep Wrangler score from the IIHS?

The 2021 Jeep Wrangler earned a “Good” rating from the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) in most crashworthiness tests, including moderate overlap front side tests, and elements such as roof strength, head restraints and seats. However, the model did struggle in the small overlap front: driver-side crashworthiness tests. In both of these tests, the 2021 Wrangler tipped onto its passenger side after striking the barrier. The institute deemed this unacceptable and lowered the overall rating of the vehicle to marginal. We trust Wrangler drivers to determine whether this risk is worth it to them.
