Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Reviews
Ok, therefore Rubicon owners aren't pull racers, however they sure as hell want to steadfastly keep up with modern traffic, some thing maybe not just possible with the lethargic old truck. And while our example came optioned as much as a sensational $38,790 with heated front seats, a nav setup, both soft- and hardtops, as well as the new automatic, its base cost of $34,370 is just $250 greater than last year's. The 2012 Rubicon's drastically improved acceleration and raised fuel efficiency (up 1 mpg in both EPA tests for automatic versions) are worth well a lot more than $250.
It still includes a 4.00:1 lowrange transfer-case.? And also the leading antiroll bar still disengages at the push of the button.
The risk isn't that the refined inside will decrease the Unlimited Rubicon's offroad prowess. The risk is the fact that the Unlimited Rubicon's four doors and modern, strong V-6 will convince some buyers that it has somehow turn into a modern-driving SUV.? It have not, definitely?not with the Rubicon getup. Its mudders hum away monotonously, battle to supply 0.61 grams of traction, and are implicated within the Rubicon's poor 204foot braking performance from 70 miles per hour. But all Wranglers obtain the brand new powertrain for '12, therefore stay with the Sahara or Sport variants in case your notion of rock crawling is idling up your own peagravel drive.View PhotosView Videos
