The base model Jeep Wrangler Sport S is back, finally offering an array of active safety technology, but the Wrangler range has lost a member.

The Sport S took a break for model year 2020 following its abysmal one-star score from ANCAP. Jeep promised it would add autonomous emergency braking so it could receive the same three-star rating as the pricier Overland and Rubicon and it’s now done so.

In addition to AEB, the Sport S picks up blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. The price has increased by $3000 over the 2019 Sport S, rising to $51,950 before on-road costs.

It’s available only as a two-door, though the four-door Unlimited adds a new entry-level model that shares the Night Eagle trim level name with the Compass and Grand Cherokee. It features gloss black fog light bezels and headlight inserts plus a gloss black grille surround and exclusive 17-inch black alloy wheels.

At the other end of the Wrangler range, CarExpert understands the diesel engine won’t be returning for 2021, leaving the JL Wrangler range petrol-only. The 2.2-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder was previously available only in the range-topping Unlimited Rubicon.

In addition to the range reshuffle, there are some other changes for 2021. Off-Road+ Mode is now standard on Rubicon models, which in high-range 4×4 engages sand mode and in low-range 4×4 engages rock mode.

Optional on Rubicon models is the Trail-Ready Package previously seen on the Gladiator, which adds a steel front bumper and a forward-facing off-road camera. The camera, situated within the Wrangler’s grille, also features an integrated washer that allows you to clear away mud with the push of a button.

The Wrangler Unlimited Overland is the only model that receives the Sky-One-Touch Power Top, a full-length open canvas roof that takes less than 20 seconds to fully open or close. It adds $4950 to the price.

Other changes for the 2021 Wrangler include a couple of new colours: Snazzberry and Hydro Blue.

The model year 2021 Wrangler range is ready to order now and will arrive in showrooms in January 2021.

Safety

When the Jeep Wrangler was tested by ANCAP in 2019, it received a rating of three stars.

This rating was based on an adult occupant protection score of 60 per cent, child occupant protection score of 80 per cent, vulnerable road user protection score of 49 per cent, and a safety assist score of 51 per cent.
