Safety Feature Summary

The safety feature information below is subject to change without notice. For up to date safety feature specifications for all variants, please see the safety feature table to the right or contact the manufacturer.

Dual front airbags are standard. Side airbags with chest and head protection for front occupants are optional (these will soon become standard but do not change the ANCAP safety rating).

The side impact test normally used by ANCAP simulates a small car striking the driver's door of the vehicle under test. Experience shows that large vehicles like the Wrangler can be expected to perform well in this test so ANCAP has decided to award a full score of 16 for these vehicles instead of conducting a crash test.
