The new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon X is available in two versions: a two-door Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited that is its 4-door version, which debuted on the market starting from € 46,700 (Wrangler) and € 49,900 (Wrangler Unlimited). The motorization is the same for both models: it is the 2.8 turbo diesel with 200 hp and 460 Nm of torque, mated to a five-speed automatic gearbox.

With regard to the setting of the car body, the new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon X highlights a specific layout that still characterizes most of the image to be that of an off-road vehicle, pure and hard: the classic seven-slot grille is painted black to glossy inserts and the bonnet – with double vents – appears to be raised and the side window is obscured.

The capacity of the new special offroad series of Jeep Wrangler Rubicon X is highlighted by the adoption of the (front and rear) Dana 44axles, the all-wheel drive with a Rock-Trac NV241 two-speed gearbox, and the front differential and back Tru-Lock (which divide the drive torque to the wheels on the same axle and allow easy maneuvering at low speed over bumps, very steep climbs and slippery surfaces) for off-road driving in the toughest conditions. Also of note, the Active Sway Bar System device that disconnects the front stabilizer bar for increased suspension travel.
