Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 4x4

In case you were curious to find out more on the 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon, please know that we now have some more, spicy information on it. The Wrangler Unlimited is offered as standard with 20.6 inches added to its wheelbase and two additional doors bolted to its passenger compartment. So that you know, the carmaker offers the Unlimited in 7 different trim levels and the Rubicon is the most capable of them all in terms of pavement ends. It boasts front and rear electronic locking differentials and a front sway bar that can be disengaged to the touch of a button for improved articulation. The price for the model tested was established at $34.095, plus destination charge. As optional, the driver can also ask for a 5-speed automatic transmission, Uconnect, and a premium soft top which will increase the price at $38.630.

According to one enthusiast drive that tested the new model of Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 4x4, handling is very sloppy, with initial turn-in delayed. Despite all these, it is impossible to find a more competent model on the market now. The drive explored a lot of places in a lot of different conditions, like for example deep, soft sand, has climbed steep hills like a mountain goat and danced through sticky mud. All experiences have ended well.

Under the hood it hides a Pentastar V6 unit that provides a lot of power. The off-road park is up approximately 5.000 feet in elevation, but still the fuel economy of the 3.6-liter is not really that impressive. According to the driver, the ride quality of the long-wheelbase 4-door is a lot better than on the two-door. The passengers found the second row fairly comfortable in comparison to the rear accommodations in a compact SUV or CUV. The younger occupants especially complained about the lack of running boards, but it is only normal in an off-road. The carmaker said that hardcore off-roaders should consider the standard 2-door models as it has greater agility on trails. These are all the information available on the new Jeep wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 4x4.
