    Excelling in the rocks, mud and dirt By Emme Hall August 23, 7: There are no crash avoidance technologies available on the Wrangler — like forward collision warning or autonomous braking — or even parking sensors, blind spot monitors or a backup camera. Even base models cost more than you might expect, but they do have one benefit: If you want only a little bit of sun, the Freedom Top front panels can be removed separately, or you can opt for the finicky manual soft-top for alfresco motoring whenever the mood strikes.

    Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Hard Rock 4×4 Review & Test Drive

    By Aaron Turpen on. For a week, we took a bright lime green Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and bounced through the Wyoming tundra. There are a few vehicles that can be named that are immediately iconic. The Wrangler itself comes in several flavors, from the lower-cost and more day-to-day Sport model to the most capable, extreme Rubicon.

    Not much has changed with the Wrangler for several years, but with rumors thick about the iconic Jeep coming up for an overhaul as a new-generation for the Wrangler, we were glad we got a week in the current generation to remind us why we love it so.

    On the outside, nothing matches a Jeep Wrangler. The Wrangler has the expected Wrangler styling, from round headlamps to a very aggressive off-pavement stance.

    The Rubicon model, named after the famous trail, sits a bit higher, has a more aggressive hood with extra intake scoops, and has a bigger, thicker bumper armored against rock bumps and a ready-made winch receiver.

    LED headlamps are available for the Wrangler this year. The Wrangler has always been available in a myriad of color choices, many of which are as extreme as is the Jeep itself. The bright lime green of our test model may be our favorite so far, though the bright orange and strong red that are also available may be close contenders there. Outside of that, the only differentiation in Jeep Wrangler models is between the Rubicon and the others.

    The standard Sport and Sahara trims have some good qualities, but the beefier tires, heavier shocks, higher stance, and more aggressive bumpers of the Rubicon are hard to miss. Chief among those is the standard stereo system, which is an 8-speaker with a CD player and audio input jack. Otherwise, though, the interior of the Wrangler is pretty devoid of creature comforts.

    The Sport model has almost nothing inside, except for that stereo, but the Rubicon comes standard with air conditioning. A volt power outlet and satellite radio are also standard in the Rubicon. As with all Wrangler models, though, the doors can be readily removed, the windscreen can drop down to lock onto the hood, and the top can be taken off. Most of this takes some effort, but the tools to do it are included with the Wrangler.

    This makes for potential fun times, though we did not get to do much with this given the cold weather. To compensate for the weather, though, our test model did have the optional removable front roof panels for the hardtop, which can be easily popped out and stowed in the back to make for a semi-convertible experience.

    We highly recommend these. For seating, the Wrangler Rubicon has well-done front seats with good bolstering and plenty of adjustment.

    Here's Why the 2018 Jeep Wrangler Is Much Better Than the Old One
