The quotes above represent how much it costs to insure a Jeep Wrangler Sport, however insurance costs can vary based on which trim level you have. One of the main reasons for this is that trim level has a big impact on the value of your vehicle, which affects auto insurance costs. More expensive trim levels will typically have higher insurance costs, so Wrangler Rubicon or Sahara owners—the more expensive trim options—can expect higher premiums than Wrangler Sport drivers, which is the cheapest trim version.

Insurance rates will also vary based on if you have two-door or four-door Wrangler model—called the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. We found that—for the Sport trim level—the two-door model also had an insurance rate 14% greater than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited's insurance cost.
