Jeep continues to expand its popular range of Wrangler 4×4 vehicles with the introduction of a stunning new limited edition, the Rubicon Recon.
Revealed at this yearâ€™s Geneva Motor Show, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon brings to the most capable production vehicle in the world even greater capability, including more protection from the most severe, rugged off-road terrain. The new special edition model will offer improved 4×4 capability thanks to specific off-road components including a stronger front axle and heavy-duty cast rear differential covers.
Based on the existing Wrangler Rubicon model, the new Recon adds attractive adventure styling to the legendary 4×4 capability and open air freedom, thanks to equipment such as 18-inch Low Gloss Granite Crystal painted aluminium wheels, a black dual top (including both soft and hardtop options), and a dual-vented Power Dome hood with a black-silhouette “Rubicon” decal featuring red accent lettering on both sides. A Trail Rated logo with red accents, a black fuel filler door, and a black hard spare tyre cover complete the package.
A black-and-red theme characterises the inside of the new Wrangler Rubicon Recon. Red accent stitching adorns the standard black leather heated seats with a “Rubicon” embroidered logo. Black vinyl-wrapped front door armrest and console lid with black stitching, red accent netting on front door pockets and the centre console, unique leather-wrapped steering wheel and red accent coloured seatbelts help to distinguish the Recon from the rest of the Wrangler line-up.
The new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon special-edition model comes in two- and four-door specification and is powered by Jeepâ€™s 3.6-litre V6 petrol engine delivering 284 horsepower, matched to the automatic five-speed gearbox. It comes in three exterior colours: Gobi, Bright White, and Granite Crystal.
The new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon will cost Â£40,505 OTR (two-door) and Â£42,175 (four-door) when it goes on sale in the UKÂ from today (14 July).
