Voted "best four—wheel—drive vehicle of The decade" by Four Wheeler Magazine, Rubicon is a factory built warrior born with true—ook, electronically locking differentials, mud tera in tires, rock-tracs transfer case, 4:1 low range ratio, and rock rails.

An incredible 73.1:1 crawl ratio with the manual transmission lets you cruise up the rocks to places others only dream of.

* Face of freedom

There's a reason they call it an icon. Jeep Wrangler's signature seven-slot grille and round headlamps are recognized the world over. The original 4WD freedom machine has a classic design that never goes out of style.

Live wide—open

Fun and freedom go hand in hand in the Jeep® Wrangler—the only 4WD convertible with a unique, open-air design that intensifies the off-road outdoor experience.

* Go anywhere, do anything (Rubicon rocks)

Wrangler Rubicon has earned its bragging rights (as if it needs any): Most traction of any Wrangler ever, Best-in-Class water fording capability - through up to 30 inches of water, and Best-in-Class turning diameter.

Sway bar disconnect

This system allows you, by the flip of a switch, to automatically disengage the sway bar when driving under 18 mph in 4LO mode. The front wheels can then drop and compress up to 22 percent further on Wrangler Rubicon.

* Aggressive angles

Rubicon has Best-in-Class ground clearance along with Best-in-Class approach and departure angles. The front air dam is removable to provide added flexibility (better approach angle) when off-roading.

* Diffs and shocks

Wrangler Rubicon offers tuneable monotube shock absorbers which feature low speed tunable valve technology that's firm on the rocks and relaxed at higher speeds. Front and rear Tru-Lok® locking differentials offer the ultimate in traction.

* Trail Rated

Before a Jeep 4WD is worthy of our name, we test it on some of the toughest off-road areas in the world, including Moab and the famed Rubicon Trail. There are two Trail Rated® 4WD systems to choose from: the tough—as—nails Command—Trac® and made-for-mountains Rock—Trac

* Legendary 4WD capability

We weren't surprised in the least at the latest award from Four Wheeler Magazine. Jeep vehicle capability is legendary—the culmination of more than 70 years of experience and real-world testing. 4WD mastery has always been the cornerstone of the Jeep brand. All 2012 Wrangler models come equipped with a capable 4WD system as standard equipment. Wrangler Rubicon offers standard 32-inch BFGoodrich® off—road tyres with a custom tread pattern with biting edges for wicked weather or ragged rocks.

* Premium sound

Surrounded by nature and music. An Infinity® Premium Sound System has seven speakers, including a subwoofer and a 368-watt amplifier that will make your favourite songs sound even better.
