We test the new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon on and off road to see whether it’s still the don of off-roaders
There aren’t many cars like the Jeep Wrangler in existence. The Jeep was first conceived for the military more than 70 years ago, became a civilian version and has been confidently yet sympathetically updated ever since. The Jeep is ‘the one’.
During that time it has remained arguably the world’s most capable off-road vehicle, while it has developed a sense of fun over the years too. You can easily remove the roof, fold down the windscreen, even take off the doors, to turn an all-weather, all-season car into a toy for grown-ups.
Cleaner, more efficient and more capable than ever, this brand new JL variant arrives this year, replacing the JK that has been on sale since 2006. You can have it with two or four doors and, in Europe, with a 2.2-litre diesel engine. We test it on and off road to see whether it’s still the don of off-roaders.
