The National Highway and Transportation Safety Association recently released its results for the 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited frontal crash ratings. The results are impressive - 5 star safety for both the driver and passenger.

The recently released data also shows that neither the 2-wheel drive nor the 4-wheel drive models have an high risk of rollover. The 2-wheel drive model has a 19% chance of a rollover in a single vehicle crash (earning a 4-star rating) and the 4-wheel drive model has at 27% chance (earning a 3-star rating).

It is important to note that both the 2-wheel drive model and the 4-wheel drive model are equipped with Electronic Stability Control (ESC). If you follow general automotive news, you'll have recently read about the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety's recent push to get ESC into more vehicles sooner. They're lobbying lawmakers to speed implementation of a federal rule to require ESC on all new vehicles.

The full results are available at their web site.
