It's probably the case that there aren't two Jeep Wranglers on the road that are exactly the same, but before you go crazy with the accessories and add-ons you have to choose the right variant to be your ultimate 4x4 SUV. Once you've decided to go for the four-door Wrangler Unlimited body style, you then have to choose the trim level of your new off-road SUV. To help you out with that, we're going to look in detail here at one in particular, which is the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon.


If you want the right platform to build the ultimate of all Jeep SUVs for off-road capability and comfort and convenience features, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon is where you need to be. It might be the most expensive Wrangler you can buy from the factory, but that's because it's the top of the range model with all the goodies you can get for making those wilderness adventures as comfortable as possible. Jeep does offer special editions that can be more expensive, but the Rubicon is usually seen as the range-topping trim level in the Unlimited SUV lineup.

Engines and powertrain

The standard engine in the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon is a 3.6-liter V-6 that develops 285 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, which is sent to all four wheels through a standard six-speed manual transmission or the optional eight-speed automatic. That's the engine most Unlimited have had to-date, but there's now a new kid on the block in the shape of a 2.0-liter turbo-four that comes mated to the FCA eTorque mild hybrid system. The turbo-four develops 270 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque, although both engines allow the Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon to tow up to 3,000 pounds, when properly equipped (see dealer for details).

Features and equipment

The headline features of the Rubicon are its standard off-road gear, which includes the likes of the 4:1 Rock-Trac Heavy Duty Part-Time 4WD system, performance suspension, 3rd Generation wide front and rear axles and knobbly off-road tires. Creature comforts the Rubicon gets standard include power windows, LED interior lighting, some premium cloth seats, numerous power outlets, a 7.0-inch touchscreen Uconnect 4 infotainment system that's Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible, air conditioning, a reversing camera and satellite radio.

On the outside, the Rubicon boasts 17-inch alloy wheels, high-clearance front fender flares, rock rails, a vented hood with Rubicon decal, red front and rear tow hooks, unique front and rear bumpers with Gray bezels and Gray grille inserts, and skid plates for the fuel tank and the transfer case.

Fuel economy

With the V-6 engine and eight-speed automatic transmission - the most popular configuration - the Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon is rated by the EPA for fuel economy at 18 mpg in the city, 23 mpg on the highway and 20 mpg combined. If buyers choose the new mild-hybrid turbo-four instead, those ratings improve to 22 mpg in the city, 24 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg combined.*
