Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition is a special edition vehicle which will mark the emblematic moment ten years ago when the first Wrangler Rubicon model was introduced. Back in the days the Rubicon models were the most extreme Wranglers ever produced.
Then, in 2005 model year was introduced the Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited which brought more utility to the Rubicon’s quickly established off-road credentials. And now looking forward to the future, the 2013 model year we will see the introduction of the limited edition 2013 Wrangler Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition.
The Jeep model will be available in two-door or four-door variant, and according to the brand is the most capable Wrangler ever produced. It is equipped with six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission mated to a Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 engine. The latter generates 285 horsepower (210 kW) and 352 Nm (260 ft.-lbs.) of torque.
The one-half inch increase in ride height versus the standard Rubicon model provides the BF Goodrich KM2 265/70R17 tires more room to claw at rugged terrain. The tires are mounted on 17-inch Rubicon aluminum wheels painted satin black with polished faces and a red Jeep Wrangler “icon” logo on the outside lip.
Black front and rear steel off-road bumpers enhance the powerful presence of the vehicle. Here the front bumper includes removable end caps and winch-capable design, which help the vehicle climb obstacles without hindrance, and reduce the damage potential to the bumper system.
On the other hand, the dual-intake Power Dome hood helps aid in engine cooling. Red tow hooks adorn the front and rear, and Mopar rock rails give added protection from trail damage. A “10th Anniversary” badging can be seen on the fenders and a red-silhouette “Rubicon” decal on the sides of the hood.
As a standard the Rubicon will be equipped with Premium Sunrider soft top and as an option ca be purchased with a black three-piece Freedom hard top or body-color hard top. Available exterior colors here are Billet Silver, White and 10th Anniversary Edition-exclusive Anvil.
What about the interior – it has many special touches as well. The first thing that one sees is the striking red leather seats with “Rubicon 10th Anniversary” embroidered into the front seat backs. Of course, red stitching adorns the leather-wrapped steering wheel and the center console, to match the seats.
The final design touches include Mopar slush mats, unique axle locker and sway-bar disconnect switches and a plaque mounted in the dash tray. There is stored the important technical data: axle type and ratio, tire size, transfer case crawl ratio and manufacturer location.
2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicion 10th Anniversary Edition can be seen in showrooms in the spring of next year.
