Jeep 2015 Wrangler Sport$22,995$1,397

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 — the more expensive trim options — owners can expect higher premiums than Wrangler Sport drivers, as the Sport is the cheapest trim version.

Insurance rates will also vary based on if you have the two-door Wrangler model or the four-door Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. We found that — for the Sport trim level — the four-door Unlimited model had an insurance rate 3% greater than the two door Sport model's insurance cost — a $62 per year difference.
