Most and least "died in" vehicles

I stumbled across this diagram, it's a bit out dated but should still generally apply, you'll see that per 1,000,000 registered cars there were 17 deaths in a JKU and 20 in a JK, I could be misreading this, but if I'm not those are pretty good numbers!

Very interesting. Thanks for sharing. I agree one might expect the JK & JKU numbers to be higher.

When I got my 2013 JKU insured with State Farm they told me it was one of the safest cars in their system because they rarely have to pay out on them. It only went up $5-10 a month over my 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe. I was pretty shocked since there is quite a value difference between the two.

I kind of expected them to be that low. When properly seat belted and when not hitting things like deer and moose that come thru the windshield, people really only die in really bad crashes. Rollovers are an example of this. With such a strong roll cage, my co-worker was tboned by a drunk driver, rolled 7 times, and still walked away from the crash without injuries. The weight of the vehicle, heavy duty frame, and lack of a large crumple zone can also help by transferring more of the crash's energy into the other car rather than the jeep. My dad always said if you have 6,000 pounds going one way, it's going to take a lot to make it stop it change directions. I know it's not totally true but at least partially

I'm glad the rates are so low tho. That's reassuring

Missing from the list is the Pontiac Aztec. NOBODY would be caught dead in one of those...

I'd like to see the rates for the more recent model years. Especially since the newer model years now have supplemental restraint systems as an option.

Really? I didn't know that. I thought all seatbelt/airbag options were the same in all Jk's

We also have State Farm. Our agent was surprised at how little our premium went up when we replaced my 2007 Town and Country with my JKU. He actually said I cant believe what Im seeing but its there, so it has to be true. LOL

Not considering death events but rather body damage claims, I expected higher premiums on my 2013 JKU Sport vs. the 2008 Tacoma SR5 Prerunner Doublecab 2WD it replaced. I was surprised to see my full coverage, low deductible insurance with State Farm actually drop almost $18/month.

That's true. So, it should be the safest vehicle on the road if you can find one.

Side air bags are an option. Everything else is the same.

Very interesting; thanks for posting that. It gets even scarier for Nissan Titan drivers when you add up their 3 different types (crew, 2wd, 4wd), for a total of 329 deaths! I wonder if it's because most full-size V8 pick-up drivers drive like total douchebags, at least here in TX? But then Tundras, F-150s and Silverados should be represented on this list as well...

Anyway, I'm happy with my choice!

I think the death count is so low on Jk's and Jku's is we all know how to drive. Unlike the rest of the population.....

Does a 2013 Rubicon have knee bolster airbags in addition to the two front seat airbags?

JKs have always offered optional side airbags.

I replaced my '06 Chevy POS-oops, I mean HHR-for my '10 JKU & my insurance went down $10! I was preparing for the worst when it came to insurance cost but pleasantly surprised!

What is interesting is ALL the JKU deaths were single vehicle...

That is statistically crazy.

I price 12 JK against a 4x4 F150 thinking the insurance would make be go back to the F150... there was a $50 a month difference in the insurance the jeep kicked the F150's butt... so I got the Jeep I always wanted.

Maybe it is related to speed. Jeepers tend not to speed, because have the time we couldn't if we wanted too!

I bet overall, Jeep owners drive a bit slower and are considerably less susceptible to road rage since i've heard that Jeep owners are, as a whole, happier and enjoy life more than other car owners.

As for insurance rates being lower, it MUST be that wrangler owners are simply better drivers, and thus, cheaper to insure. Great to be in this group, as my rates also went with my 2012 JKU over my 2008 liberty.

Actually not very. The chart doesn't specify on road or off. Therefore it could be that several were on rural roads or trails.
