Jeep crosses the Ru­bi­con in style

The Press and Journal (Inverness) - - YOUR CAR -

Alim­ited-edi­tion Jeep Wran­gler Ru­bi­con — de­signed for off-road­ing — has been re­vealed.

The Wran­gler Ru­bi­con Re­con adds more all-ter­rain abil­ity to a ve­hi­cle that didn’t lack it in the first place, thanks to a stronger front axle and heavy-duty cast rear dif­fer­en­tial cov­ers.

The Re­con re­tains the per­for­mance of the stan­dard car it’s based on — mean­ing it sports a 3.6-litre V6 en­gine that de­vel­ops 284bhp, tak­ing the Re­con from 0-60mph in 7.9 sec­onds and up to a top speed of 112mph.

To com­ple­ment the more ca­pa­ble me­chan­ics, the Re­con also re­ceives a host of vis­ual en­hance­ments. Th­ese in­clude 18-inch painted alu­minium wheels, a black roof (avail­able in ei­ther soft or hard-top form) and a dual-vented bon­net fea­tur­ing red-ac­cented “Ru­bi­con” let­ter­ing on ei­ther side. A “Trail Rated” logo with red ac­cents, a black fuel filler door and a black hard spare tyre cover fin­ish the pack­age.

As for the in­te­rior, leather heated seats come com­plete with red stitch­ing and an em­broi­dered “Ru­bi­con” logo. Black vinyl-wrapped arm­rests fea­ture, as does a unique leather-wrapped steer­ing wheel — also com­plete with red stitch­ing in an ef­fort to dis­tin­guish the Re­con from the rest of the Wran­gler range.

Two-door vari­ants of the Wran­gler Ru­bi­con Re­con start from £40,050 while four-door mod­els start from £42,175. Both are now on sale.
