The 2013 Jeep Wrangler might be surprisingly compatible with family use or daily driving than you might have suspected, in most ways, but safety is still a red flag.

The Wrangler does come with quite a few safety features—including anti-lock brakes and stability control, plus two off-road aids: Hill Start Assist (HSA) to prevent rollback on graded surfaces, and Trailer Sway Control (TSC), which monitors vehicle movement relative to the intended path.

One thing that may come to a surprise for some shoppers is that side-impact bags remain an option ($490) on the Wrangler Unlimited and aren't even available on the two-door Wrangler.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) hasn't rated this Jeep very well, and this is what's most concerning: The two-door Wrangler is rated 'good' for frontal impact, 'moderate' in the seat-based rear-impact test, and just 'poor' for side impact. Four-door Wrangler Unlimited models have the same frontal and rear ratings, but they get side-impact scores of 'moderate'--better, but still not top-notch.

 

Conclusion

Several electronic aids help increase the Wrangler's safety on the trail, but on-the-road safety isn't stellar.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
