Introducing the 2020 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon Edition
Jeep enthusiasts will be happy to learn that Jeep is bringing back the Wrangler Rubicon Recon edition to the SUV’s iconic lineup, meaning that the top-tier Rubicon trim is no longer the cream of the crop. The 2020 Wrangler Rubicon Recon features an efficient and powerful 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine with eTorque mild hybrid technology under its hood. Although the Recon edition is based on the Wrangler Rubicon trim, it also has its own unique exterior and interior upgrades.
“We are excited to bring the Wrangler Rubicon Recon model back to the Jeep lineup as it represents the ultimate combination off-road 4×4 capability with a unique appearance package that will resonate with our most diehard off-road enthusiasts. With the return of the Wrangler Rubicon Recon, we’re bolstering the wide appeal Jeep Wrangler already offers by expanding our legendary Rubicon lineup,” said Jim Morrison, Head of the Jeep Brand — FCA North America.
2020 is the first time that the popular Rubicon Recon edition is available on the latest JL-generation Wrangler. On the inside, Jeepers will find a Jeep trail bag, PUR-wrapped mid bolsters with red accent stitching and red seat belts. Changes are more apparent on the exterior, as the Wrangler Rubicon Recon boasts a gloss black grille with body-color surrounds, a Recon fender badge, front and rear steel bumpers with bumper loops, LED headlights and taillights, headlamp inserts, heavy-duty rock rails, and Rubicon gray grille throats.
Wrangler Rubicon Recon trims also feature next-generation Dana front and rear heavy-duty axles, a two-speed transfer case with a 4:0:1 low-range gear ratio, and enhanced off-road rock rails. Buyers can also enjoy a disconnecting front sway bar, electric front and rear locking differentials, and 33-inch Falken Wildpeak Mud-Terrain tires — taking this Wrangler to the next level when it comes to performance.
The Wrangler Rubicon Recon is available in the following exterior colors: Black, Sting-Gray, Billet Silver, Granite Crystal, Bright White, Hellayella, Firecracker Red, Bikini, Ocean Blue, Sarge, and Punk’n. The two-door Wrangler Rubicon Recon has a starting MSRP of $43,380 (plus destination fee) while the four-door version has a starting MSRP of $46,880 (plus destination fee).
