Less than a month after Auto Nation Group launched the new-generation Jeep Wrangler JL, it’s now joined by the “ultimate” Rubicon variant. A surprise showcase at the Manila International Auto Show, the Wrangler Rubicon is available with two engines and two body styles, and is now available at all authorized Jeep dealers nationwide.
The most capable Wrangler variant, the 2019 Wrangler JL comes standard with the Rock-Trac 4x4 system with a “4LO” ratio of 4:1 and Tru-Lok locking differentials. At four corners, it has LT255/75R17C all-terrain tires while underneath it has various skid plates.
Like the recently launched Wrangler Unlimited Sport, the Wrangler Rubicon dons lightweight aluminum—on the hood, fenders, and doors while adding a more off-road friendly fascia with front and rear heavy-duty, winch-ready bumpers with removable end caps. Unlike the Sport variant though, the Wrangler Rubicon comes in two body styles—a 2-door and a 4-door, both with a removable hardtop and body-colored fender flares.
Considered as the most capable Wrangler ever, the Wrangler Rubicon comes with two engine variants. The base model comes with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 making 286 horsepower and 353 Nm of torque, while opting for the boosted 2.0-liter, it makes 286 horsepower and more impressively, 400 Nm of torque. Both engines are mated to an 8-speed automatic.
Standard features on the 2019 Wrangler Rubicon include front and rear fog lamps, the latest Uconnect infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 230-volt auxiliary power outlet, blind spot monitoring, and a rear-view camera with dynamic guidelines.
