Three driver-side small overlap frontal exams of the Wrangler have been carried out, two by the Institute and the opposite by then-Fiat Chrysler (now Stellantis) as a part of frontal crash take a look at verification.
Scores are primarily based totally on the Institute’s exams and apply solely to the redesigned mannequin. In each of the Institute’s exams, the car tipped onto its passenger facet after hanging the barrier.
The partial rollover presents an extra damage threat past what the usual standards are meant to measure in small overlap frontal crash exams. A car tipping onto its facet just isn’t an appropriate consequence for a frontal crash and, consequently, the Wrangler’s general score was downgraded to marginal.
