Jeep is a iconic American automobile brand and a subsidiary of the Italian/American corporation, Fiat Chrysler. Jeep’s line consists solely of high-end sports utility vehicles, including both crossovers as well as off-road SUVs. The Jeep Wrangler is a series of mid-size, four-wheel-drive SUVs, that has been extremely popular for decades. However, in 2020, a class-action lawsuit revealed certain safety issues relating to vehicle rollovers with the Wrangler, which led to an overall downgrade of the vehicle’s safety rating. Attorneys are now investigating the concerns raised by Wrangler users.

What is the Jeep Wrangler Rollover Risk?
Earlier this year, users of Jeep Wrangler 2019 and 2020 models had expressed their concerns regarding the vehicle’s safety in a class-action suit. An investigation of these models was instigated by a failed front-end crash test conducted in May 2020. The test revealed a serious risk of injury and fatality in the event of a rollover. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) safety test, the vehicle had tipped over during a safety test, which is particularly dangerous because this model has removable roof and doors. In an even more dangerous situation, passengers may be ejected from the vehicle, which can have fatal results.
Making matters worse, certain 2019-2020 Wrangler models also lack side-curtain airbags that minimize the impact of a rollover. According to the IIHS, “The partial rollover presents an additional injury risk beyond what the standard criteria are intended to measure in small overlap frontal crash tests, A vehicle tipping onto its side is not an acceptable outcome for a frontal crash and, as a result, the Wrangler’s overall rating was downgraded to marginal.”
