2015 Jeep Wrangler Review and SpecsPhoto by faza_elh


19. Jeep Wrangler 2-Door

The Jeep Wrangler 2-door scored “marginal” in the small front overlap and head restraints/seats tests, and a “poor” in the side impact test. These low scores earned the Jeep Wrangler 2-door a low overall safety score. In the small overlap front test, measurements from the dummy indicate that injuries to the left knee, left and right thighs, and left lower leg would be likely in a crash of this severity. Injuries to the left foot would be possible. Driver space was maintained reasonably well, and dummy movement was well controlled. The Jeep Wrangler 2-door does not come standard with side airbags. In the side impact test, the driver’s door opened. While it didn’t effect the dummy, the door opening resulted in a structure rating downgrade from “good” to “acceptable”. Measurements taken from the dummy indicated that rib fractures and/or internal organ injuries would be likely in a crash of this severity. A fracture of the pelvis would also be possible.
