2024 Jeep Wrangler Safety and Reliability

Jeep Wrangler Reliability Rating

2024 Wrangler Safety

The Jeep Wrangler's safety record isn't stellar. The NHTSA gave it four out of five stars for the frontal crash test and three stars for the rollover test for last year's model. The two-door Wrangler wasn't fully tested by the IIHS, and the agency scored its headlights either Marginal or Poor, depending on the trim. It tested the four-door Wrangler, which received mixed scores, with Marginal for the frontal small overlap and updated side test, and Poor for the frontal moderate overlap. The Ford Bronco fared significantly better, with mostly Good scores across the board. We hope the new model gets better safety reviews when it gets tested.

2024 Wrangler Key Safety Features

Very few safety features are fitted as standard, although it should be noted that the Wrangler finally gains curtain airbags for both rows this year, supplementing the existing front and side airbags fitted to protect the front-seat occupants. The other federally mandated features are there, such as tire-pressure monitoring, ABS, stability control, and a backup camera.

At Sport level, cruise control, trailer-sway damping, and hill-start assist are also present. The Sport S adds predictive brake assist and automatic headlights, while the Willys gets LED headlights. From the Sahara and up, adaptive cruise control with stop & go is standard. Only the Rubicon X gets rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and automatic high beams. The Sport isn't eligible for any of these additional driver assists, but most of them can be added to the other trims at extra cost.

2024 Wrangler Reliability

JD Power's quality and reliability rating for the Jeep Wrangler is a very good 86 out of 100, and the ratings are supported by a reasonable recall record. While the 2024 Wrangler has not been recalled at the time of writing, the 2023 gas model was recalled five times but only three applied to the gas model. The recalls were for a failing fuel pump, an overheating clutch pressure plate, and an engine shutdown. This is a big improvement on the 2022 Wranglers, which were recalled eight times.

The 2024 Jeep Wrangler's limited warranty is nothing exceptional though, covering the SUV for just three years/36,000 miles. The powertrain warranty runs for five years/60,000 miles.
