2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Features and Specs

August 1st, 2019 by

Named after a world-famous 4×4 trail in California, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is an off-road enthusiast’s dream. The model features a long list of capability-enhancing equipment, such as differential lockers and 33-inch tires, rarely offered on a production vehicle. Right out of the box, the SUV is an incredible performer – no modification needed.

2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon features and specs

The entire Wrangler lineup, which consists of four primary models (Sport, Sport S, Sahara and Rubicon), boasts Trail Rated off-road ability. But since its introduction in 2003, the Rubicon has set the benchmark for factory-built off-road machines worldwide. And the SUV continues to do so for the current model year.

Design

For 2019, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is available in both two-door and four-door body styles. In true Jeep fashion, the doors are removable and the windshield folds down. There’s also a removable top with optional Sky One-Touch power operation.

For maximum protection off-road, the undercarriage has numerous skid plates, while the body has available heavy-duty bumpers. The front bumper comes with a built-in winch mount, plus removable end caps for greater side clearance. Rock rails located below the doors provide further defense against rough terrain.

Inside, the fun continues with a removable carpet that allows the interior to be hosed clean without damage. Also, to secure cargo when venturing off-road, there’s an optional Trail Rail System with an integrated series of aluminum rails. Hidden under-floor bins and tactical-style Utility Grid packs provide even more storage space.

Performance  

Like the rest of the Wrangler lineup, the Rubicon comes standard with the Pentastar V6 engine (285 hp, 260 lb.-ft.) and a 6-speed manual transmission. The tried and true powertrain combination offers impressive output, as well as exceptional fuel economy.

A new turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine (270 hp, 295 lb.-ft.) and 8-speed automatic transmission are also available. For optimum efficiency, the innovative four-cylinder is equipped with mild hybrid eTorque assist.

When powered by the V6 engine and when properly equipped, the Wrangler can tow up to 3,5000 lbs.*

Capability

Naturally, the Rubicon comes with legendary Jeep four-wheel drive. The 4×4 system, known as Rock-Trac®, employs an NV241 off-road transfer case with a 4:1 low gear ratio for maximum crawl-ability. Heavy-duty Dana axles and electric Tru-Lok® lockers sit at both ends of the SUV.

Exclusive undercarriage features, such as an electronic sway bar disconnect system, come standard on the Rubicon as well. Disengaging the sway bar allows the front wheel to drop and compress, resulting in greater articulation crawling over obstacles.

Also, the Rubicon features a set of unique, 33-inch BF Goodrich KM All-Terrain tires mounted on painted cast-aluminum wheels. The gnarly set of rubber provides more ground clearance and a greater surface area for improved off-road performance.
