The iconic Jeep Wrangler, considered the “real Jeep” because it has stayed true to its off-roading roots, has origins that go back more than seven decades to the US military.
Manufactured by Fiat Chrysler, this SUV is not really meant for driving on the highway. Instead, this rugged Jeep, with its four-wheel drive, nimble suspension and ample ground clearance, is known for climbing over rocks and navigating uneven trails.
Although this vehicle is not for every driver, because it's not the most comfortable ride, it has more than its fair share of enthusiasts. As Good Car Bad Car noted in 2015, the Wrangler was the number 8 best-selling crossover SUV in America.
It was also ranked number 16 among compact SUVs by U.S. News & World Report. Consumer Reports rated it one of the best off-road vehicles in 2012.
Of course, because of the type of vehicle, and what it's typically used for, the Jeep Wrangler requires a comprehensive look at the cost of owing one. This includes insurance considerations. You’ll want to look into what factors will determine your insurance rates and find out how to get the best price on your Wrangler insurance.

Cost of Jeep Wrangler Insurance and Ownership
Owning a Jeep Wrangler over a five-year period will cost approximately $33,500. The largest portion of ownership cost is fuel. Wranglers are not known for their gas mileage, but you won't be worried about that while you are climbing over rocks in the wilderness.
Maintenance costs will take a slight uptick due to major items that will most likely need to be replaced.
The good news is insurance costs, which will run $750-$850 over five years. The Jeep Wrangler happens to be one of the cheapest midsize traditional SUVs to insure. That’s partly because it is not very expensive to repair.
If something happens to one of your doors, you can simply buy a new one and put it on. Also, the Jeep Wrangler is targeted to a very specific market, so it is not prone to theft. These factors are in its favor regarding car insurance.
