Over here in Europe there is one brand that everyone turns to when it is time to run off of the tarmac and onto the rough stuff. That brand is Land Rover. Over in the United States, however, their first choice of mud pluggers has always been Jeep. Finding its roots during the war, the company has suffered some tough times, as have many other manufacturers, but despite this they are still in the mood to celebrate.
As a 10th anniversary gift Jeep has produced what they are calling the “most off-road capable Wrangler in history.” Named the Rubicon, this American alternative to the Defender clearly means business. Equipped with huge BF Goodrich tyres and a removable front bumper to expose more of them, this machine is quite the rock-crawler. Winch and hardcore suspension are all included in the package as you would expect. Available in three colours and in two or four-door variations come spring 2013, it is a shame that the Wrangler Rubicon is not to set foot in Europe.
