No, insurance is not expensive on a Jeep Wrangler. State-minimum insurance for a Jeep Wrangler costs around $1,377 per year, based on multiple third-party sources online, while minimum coverage for the average vehicle costs $1,407 per year.
The exact premium for a Jeep Wrangler will depend on your state’s minimum coverage requirements, your age, your driving record, and what insurance company you choose.
Factors That Affect the Cost of Insurance for a Jeep Wrangler
- The age of the Jeep Wrangler. Typically, older vehicles are cheaper to insure simply because they are less valuable, so they are not as expensive to repair or replace.
- Upgraded features. If your Jeep Wrangler has upgraded features, this could make insurance more expensive, since these versions will cost more to repair.
- Your state. Depending on your state’s minimum coverage requirements, you may be paying more for insurance than people with the same type of car in other states. For instance, drivers in New York pay significantly more for car insurance than drivers in California, on average, partially because New York requires drivers to have more coverage than California does.
- Your age. Younger drivers pay significantly more for car insurance than older drivers since teens and young drivers are statistically more likely to get in an accident.
- Your driving history. Drivers with a clean record pay less for car insurance than drivers with an accident on their record. On average, drivers who are at fault for a car accident see their insurance rates increase by 50%.
