The JL Jeep Wrangler was first introduced in Australia and New Zealand in April 2019, scoring a 1 star ANCAP safety rating. In late 2019 safety specification upgrades were made, introducing autonomous emergency braking (AEB) and blind spot monitoring as standard features across all Wrangler variants. ANCAP subsequently undertook additional safety tests on the Wrangler which saw its safety rating increase to 3 stars.
The 3 star ANCAP safety rating applies to all Wrangler variants built from November 2019 when the upgrades were introduced.
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. Head-protecting side airbags are not offered for rear seating positions.
Autonomous emergency braking (City and Interurban) and a blind spot monitor are standard from November 2019 build onwards.
Lane Keep Assist (LKA) and Emergency Lane Keeping (ELK) systems are not available.
