If you are looking for the ultimate off-road vehicle, look no further than the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. The Rubicon is simply the most serious off-road model that Jeep has ever made. It is designed to excel where there is no pavement. Function -way before form- is the mantra of the Wrangler Rubicon.

The Rubicon is based on the Wrangler -Jeep’s ultra popular 2 or 4 door model. It is further differentiated from the street versions with off road features such as electronic locking differentials, sway bar disconnect, and ultra low 4:1 transfer case. Armor in the form of steel rock sliders and off road bumpers are standard on the Rubicon.

Engineers made the steel caps on the Rubicon X removable so larger tires can be fitted. Speaking of tires, Jeep opted for 255/75/R17 BFGoodrich KM2 tires on the 2015 Rubicon. These tires are soft enough to scramble up just about any surface.

Powering the Rubicon is the very capable Pentastar 3.6-liter V6. Offering 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque with 4:10 gears, the Rubicon is quick. It’ll rock and roll down the interstate at 65 mph as comfortable as can be with plenty in reserve for passing.

Besides all the rugged features, the Rubicon also offers some style. For starters, the tires are wrapped around handsome 17-inch aluminum wheels.

Inside the 2015 Wrangler Unlimited, you will find thoughtfully designed ergonomics and reduced noise and vibration. You’ll also get comfort and convenience features including: heated, leather-trimmed front seats, illuminated cup holders and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with integrated LED map lights. Up on the Dash you will find Chrysler’s popular Uconnect system with Garmin navigation.

If you are looking for a vehicle to help you get deep into the wilderness or just look like its ready to go there at the drop of a hat, the Jeep Rubicon is your ride.
