Jeep Wrangler Rubicon takes on the Baja desert

Everyone knows how capable the Jeep Wrangler is off road and we love it for it. It may not be the most sophisticated car on the road, but it is certainly unbeatable off it. If you’re in any doubt of that, this video is for you. It shows a Jeep taking on the Baja desert and winning.

Dodge, Jeep and FCA are real fans of the car video, as are we and this is a good one. Tuner’s friends Pennzoil are behind the video, one of many they have produced, part of their Joyride series. Yes it’s a rather clumsy marketing video, but more importantly for us, it shows the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon really is capable of anything.

2016 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon
The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is the off road specialist of the Wrangler line. While all models are capable on the rough stuff, it’s the Rubicon that has the proper off road chops.

The design is pure Jeep with few concessions to aerodynamics, modern design language or sleekness and we love it for that. It is proud of what it is and doesn’t feel the need to pretend. It’s an iconic shape and design and instantly recognizable once you see it on the road.

On the inside, it’s about practicality more than comfort. While it is a nice drive, there aren’t too many soft touch materials or cushiness. The materials are quality as is the finishing, but it’s about survivability rather than highway coddling.

It features 17 inch alloy wheels with 32 inch off road tires, an off road specific Dana 44 front axle and Dana 44 rear axle, uprated transfer case, electric front and rear locking differential, electronically controlled front sway bar, rock rails, auto lighting and lots of off road goodies.

Under the hood is the 3.6-litre V6 featured in all Wranglers right now. It’s a good engine capable of 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. It uses a six speed manual transmission with auto as an option to drive all four wheels.

The 2016 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is a true off the shelf off road winner. With the huge parts inventory at Mopar, you can tailor your Jeep to just about any configuration you can think of and truly make it your own. That alone makes it the vehicle of choice for anyone who wants to off road!
