After launching the all-new Jeep Wrangler in the local scene a couple of weeks ago, Jeep Philippines has expanded its Wrangler line-up with the top trim Rubicon variant, the most off-road capable variant of the famous SUV.
The Rubicon variant of the Wrangler features more aggressive exterior designs bits, including a large Rubicon sticker and LT255/75R17C tires with all-aluminum wheels for better off-roading capability. Being the higher variant of the Wrangler line-up, the interior also features more premium appointments whilst still retaining the durability and hard-wearing all-weather nature of the interior. The Rubicon variant now gets a bigger UConnect 4 infotainment system with an 8.4” touchscreen display equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Under the hood of the Wrangler Rubicon is a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, producing 286 hp and 353Nm of torque. Also offered is a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine with a mild-hybrid system for better fuel efficiency, which produces 268 hp of power with 400 Nm of torque. Both engines are mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.
Equipped with a Trail Rated badge, the legendary Jeep Wrangler Rubicon features Rock-Trac 4×4 system with a “4LO” ratio of 4:1 and Tru-Lok locking differentials. The Rubicon is also equipped with skid plates, front and rear tow hooks, and available front and rear steel heavy-duty off-road winch-ready bumpers with removable end caps for water fording and towing.
