Physically the car should be fine if there is no frame damage. Remember your vehicle is body on frame, but also is a unit body (quite unusual actually). If any frame members are bent it is a lost cause. If damage is limited to sensors and cosmetic outer panels, you will need new airbags, SRS sensors, seatbelt retractors and a new SRS module which must be programmed. Then keep in mind the cost of new panels, and any other damage to components such as radiators and plastic bumper armatures as well. The cost will probably exceed insured value of car.
