Of course, your rate will depend on several factors in addition to the year, make, and model of your vehicle. For instance, age, gender, location, and driving history have a lot to do with your insurance rates. Younger male drivers with poor driving histories and inner-city addresses tend to pay much more than older drivers in rural areas. Still, choosing a vehicle with lower insurance rates, like the Jeep Wrangler Willys Sport, can help keep your annual coverage costs down. 

Which vehicles are cheaper to insure than the Jeep Wrangler Willys Sport?

There are many vehicles on the list with lower insurance rates, but not substantially so. For instance, number 17 is the Subaru Forester 2.5L Sport, which has a national average rate of roughly $1,412, just three dollars less than the Jeep. However, some of the cheapest vehicles on insure.com’s list can yield savings of over $50 annually compared to the Jeep. The Hyundai Venue SE has an average rate of around $1,360, depending on factors like geographic location and driver demographics.

However, the Jeep Wrangler is cheaper to insure than many other cars and SUVs. Premium vehicles like the Porsche Panamera Turbo could set you back as much as $4,129. That’s a difference of around $2,714 just for insurance; the four-door Porsche costs nearly three times as much as the Wrangler in annual coverage.

While the lower-trim Wrangler is competitive in terms of insurance rates, some of the more premium Jeep models demand more money for peace of mind. Further up the Wrangler trim levels, the 6.4L V8-powered Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 392 has a national average rate of $1,674. If you want a different Jeep model, the Cherokee Trailhawk will set you back around $1,533. 

However, the latest Jeep Gladiator Rubicons, complete with their utilitarian truck beds, have a typical rate of roughly $1,673. The differences make sense, considering the gulf in starting price points. For instance, the Jeep Wrangler Willys Sport starts at around $33,650, while the Rubicon 392 starts at $81,190.
