How much does car insurance for a Jeep cost?

The car insurance cost for your Jeep will be determined by factors like your Jeep model, how you plan to use it, your location, your driving record, your age, and more. For example, since the MSRP for a Jeep Grand Cherokee L is well above its class average (according to U.S. News and World Report), it may cost more to insure than other, less expensive midsize SUVs. But safety features can also affect car insurance costs — cars with better safety ratings may be in fewer accidents and qualify for more insurance discounts.
