Jeep and LEGO Technic Team Up for the First Time

December 3rd, 2020 by

Jeep and toymaker LEGO have teamed up for the first time for a one-of-a-kind Jeep Wrangler Rubicon LEGO toy. Designed to mimic the design, iconic look, and legendary off-road chops of the Jeep Wrangler, the first-ever LEGO Jeep Wrangler SUV is ready to face any epic adventure — real or imagined!

 LEGO fans of all ages can enjoy the thrilling experience of assembling the latest LEGO Technic design with rugged tires, high-performance 4×4 systems, fold-down rear seats, and even an iconic seven-slot grille in LEGO Technic form. The kit from Jeep and LEGO Technic includes 665 pieces, a yellow and black color scheme, a button-operated front steering system, and powerful axle-articulation. Just like the real Jeep Wrangler, this build can conquer obstacles just about anywhere. The LEGO Technic Jeep Wrangler was designed for ages 9 and above, is slated to be available January 1, 2021, and retails at $49.99. 

“The Jeep Wrangler is an icon in the off-road world. The Rubicon has a lot og the iconic details loved by 4×4 fans the world over, so it was important to me to pack as many of the authentic, powerful features of the real vehicle into the LEGO Technic replica. I hope LEGO fans and vehicle lovers enjoy all aspects, including the suspension, winch and open-air design that we developed alongside the talented Jeep design team,” said Lars Thygesen, Designer, LEGO Technic.
