2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition Debuts

November 28, 2012

If you're a Jeep fan, you probably know all about the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. The special edition Wrangler is named for one of the world's most celebrated, brutal, off-road courses, and it lives up to that name with a combination of ruggedness and style.

The 10th anniversary Rubicon is available in two forms: as a two-door Wrangler or as a four-door Wrangler Unlimited. But no matter which you choose, under the hood you'll find a Pentastar 3.6-liter V6 engine that cranks out 285 hp and 260 ft-lbs of torque. That power can be matched to a six-speed manual transmission (which comes standard) or a five-speed automatic.  

The standard version of the Rubicon also arrives with a soft top, though shoppers can upgrade to an all-black, three-piece hard top or a solid one that matches the vehicle's body color. And speaking of paint colors, the Rubicon edition comes with three options: White, Billet Silver, and a special Anvil tone, which is exclusive to the 10th anniversary model. 

Also on the exterior, shoppers will note the "10th Anniversary" fender badges and "Rubicon" decals located on both sides of the hood. You'll also notice the vehicle's black steel off-road bumpers. (The front one comes with removable end caps, which, according to Chrysler, improve the Rubicon's climbing capabilities and reduce potential damage to the vehicle.) Mopar rock rails also protect the Rubicon when you take it off-road. And should you find yourself in a bind on the trail, you can make use of the red tow hooks, found both front and rear. 

Inside, the Rubicon's most striking feature is its red leather upholstery, embroidered with "Rubicon 10th Anniversary" badges. That same red is echoed in stitching on the center stack and on the leather-wrapped steering wheel. More 10th anniversary badging can be found on the gauge cluster and on the passenger grab handle.

Pricing for the 2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon hasn't been announced, but last year's model started just south of $30,000. The Rubicon rolls into showrooms this spring, and given the popularity of the Wrangler and the Rubicon edition, it's likely to sell out quickly.
