The Wrangler badge has been in use since 1986 and is one of the oldest of Jeep’s lineup still on the market today.

With a large number of editions and variations of the model available, many of them have made their way to UK shores over the years.

Did you know?

In 2007, a Jeep Wrangler set the Guinness World Record for the highest altitude attained by a four-wheeled vehicle*, after it was driven atop Ojos del Salado, a volcano in Chile. This has since been surpassed by a modified Suzuki Samurai.

Tax and insurance groups for the Jeep Wrangler

When calculating a quote that’s fair for your car cover, insurers will look at a range of information about yourself and the car you drive. One factor that an insurer might look at is the insurance group of the car you’d like to insure. These groups are bands running from 1-50 that indicate the cost of parts and driving performance of every vehicle model, helping insurers gauge the size of potential claims. Please read our guide to car insurance groups in the UK for more details. 

There’s also a banding system in use when it comes to paying tax on your vehicle. Known as Vehicle Excise Duty, this tax is owed annually and the amount due depends on the CO2 emissions of your car’s model.

Tax bands and insurance groups for some editions of the Jeep Wrangler include:

Model Insurance Group Tax Band
Jeep Wrangler 2.8 CRD Sport 2d 18 K
Jeep Wrangler 2.8 CRD Sahara Unlimited 4d 18 K
Jeep Wrangler 2.8 CRD Ultimate 2d Auto 20 L

Here at Ageas, we’re happy to offer our car insurance policies to as many UK drivers as we can. But we can’t guarantee we can cover every driver and every vehicle, and this could include some editions of the Jeep Wrangler.

We will assess if we can provide you with a quote based on a number of factors that include your car and your personal circumstances.
