Limited to just 100 units, split across 60 4-door models and 40 2-door models, the latter will be the first Rubicon-spec Wrangler to be offered here in 2-door form since 2015.
The limited-edition Rubicon Recon is defined by exterior styling touches that start with a gloss black grille surround, matte black decals and 17-inch wheels with a machined and gloss black finish.
To the Wrangler Rubicon’s steel front bumper, the Recon adds a Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) nudge bar, with a JPP tailgate reinforcement system at the rear, designed to support oversized wheel and tyre combos.
Inside, the Recon comes standard with leather-trimmed seats, heated front seats and steering wheel, red seat belts and a “premium wrapped” mid-section of the dash panel. On 4-door versions, the Trail Rail Management System for securing cargo is included.
Eight exterior paint colours are available, with a Recon Premium Package optional that swaps the black wheelarch flares and three-piece removable hardtop for body-coloured items.
There are no changes to the mechanical spec on the Recon, which is standard Wrangler Rubicon, meaning a 3.6-litre petrol V6, matched to an 8-speed automatic transmission and the Rock-Trac 4x4 system with a 4:1 transfer case and 77.2:1 crawl ratio. No diesel version of the Recon will be offered as the previously available 2.2 t/d four-cylinder is being deleted from the local Wrangler range.
“A 2-door Jeep Wrangler Rubicon continues to be a much-desired proposition amongst the Australian off-roading community, and we’re so excited to make this dream a reality with the Recon special edition,” said Guillaume Drelon, Jeep Australia Director, Brand & Product Strategy. “It offers the everyday practicality many seek, whilst remaining adventure ready.”
Priced from $66,950 for the 2-door version and $71,450 for the 4-door version, the Wrangler Rubicon Recon is now available to order ahead of a late Q4, 2020 delivery. See your Jeep dealer for details.
