wait. didn’t Wrangler celebrates its 10th anniversary like donkey years ago? yes, they did but this ’10th’ is not for Wrangler but its for Wrangler that has been badged Rubicon. sounds complicated? really, it is not cos’ all you have know that the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition is billed by its maker “the most capable Wrangler ever produced.” but if you really must dig into it, this limited edition off-road beast is equipped with a Pentastar 3.6-liter V6 engine with 285 ponies (212 kW) and 352 Nm (260 lb-ft) of torque on the tap. mated to a choice of standard six-speed manual or five-speed automatic gearbox, it features electronic-locking front and rear Dana 44 axles, Rock-Trac transfer case with a “4-Low” ratio of 4:1, Tru-Lok locking differentials front and rear, a one-half inch increase in ride height, monstrous BF Goodrich KM2 265/70R17 tires on Rubicon aluminum wheels in satin black with polished faces, a winch-capable black steel front bumper, black steel rear bumper, dual-intake Power Dome hood, red tow hooks (front and back), premium Sunrider soft top, striking red leather seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel with red stitching, a unique instrument cluster, Electronic Vehicle Information Center, “Rubicon 10th Anniversary” badges in and around the vehicle and touches of Mopar equipment including rock rails, black fuel filler door, tail lamp guards and slush mats. rolling into the dealership spring 2013 in both two-door Wrangler and four-door Wrangler Unlimited – in Stateside, of course. we are fine by that cos’ we are getting use to dreaming and indulge in still images instead. speaking of which, you can get your fix for this awesome off-roader in the gallery below.
