The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is the top dog of the Wrangler trims.
Drivers have their choice of the tried and true 3.6-liter engine, or a new 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
The smaller engine features FCA's mild-hybrid eTorque system, which swaps the alternator for a small electric motor and generator for better off-the-line power. Regenerative braking resupplies the 48-volt lithium-ion battery and a stop-start system helps fuel economy.
In all, the 2.0-liter engine knocks out 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque and is mated to a new eight-speed automatic transmission.
The Rubicon gets a stellar approach angle of 44 degrees with 10.8 inches of ground clearance.
Every Rubicon comes with 33-inch BF Goodrich KO2 off-road tires.
Other off-road goodies specific to the Rubicon are front and rear lockers and a disconnecting sway bar for more articulation.
The final crawl ratio in the Rubicon is 77.2:1 for the automatic transmission and a whopping 84.2:1 for the manual,
The result is a Jeep that can crawl over pretty much anything.
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited starts at $41,445, but our tester on the trail is $53,055. Keep scrolling for more photos this rocking Ruby.
