Jeep® To Show Off A New Wrangler Rubicon 20th Anniversary Edition In Moab?

2023 Marks The 20th Anniversary Of The Iconic Trail-Oriented Off-Roader...

Two weeks ago, the Jeep® and Mopar brand began to tease their concept vehicles for the annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari. Every year, both brands bring about 6 or 7 conceptual vehicles to the “Red Rock” region. It’s there, that the brand put their ideas of future design, conceptual accessories, and showcases what the brands currently offer the public in front of the thousands of Jeep loyalists who attend the annual event.

The first two concepts centered around the all-new two-row Grand Cherokee 4xe and the midsized Gladiator pickup. But now Jeep has released another new teaser image of yet another new vehicle. The vehicle in question is the Wrangler Rubicon.

Upon looking at the image, there is the number “20” next to the Rubicon hood decal. The number 20 represents the Rubicon model’s 20th year in production. As the ultimate trail-oriented Wrangler, the Rubicon name began in 2003 on the Wrangler (TJ). Named after one of the most demanding 22 mile stretches of off-roading trails in America, the 2003 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon was considered to be Jeep’s “ultimate off-road rig”.

Fast forward twenty years and the Rubicon trim now sits on several variants of the Wrangler (JL). There is the standard Wrangler Rubicon short-wheel-base (SWB), the Wrangler UnlimitedRubicon long-wheel-base (LWB), electrified Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 4xe, and the 6.4-liter HEMI V8-powered Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 392.

This latest sketch appears to be a 392 model, judging by the “392” badge on the hood. There also appears to be a matte black fender vent decal with an American flag just like the popular Rubicon Recon models from 2020. A hood decal is also present, but it is hard to tell what exactly is printed on that.

We expect that the vehicle could be a hint at what to expect on the upcoming 2023 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 20th Anniversary Edition model. The Wrangler is due for a mid-cycle action (MCA) in 2023, so we might see some new updates for the beloved Wrangler at the Moab event.

The Moab Easter Jeep Safari kicks off on Saturday, April 9th, 2022, and will go on until Sunday, April 17th, 2022. Stay tuned as we will continue to bring you more coverage of the new Jeep and Mopar concepts, as they become available.

392 has to be coming to the gladiator, considering the ranger raptor coming in 2023 (though it only has 392 hp). would not be surprised if this is prequel to a factory "xtreme recon" 392 gladiator. Question is if jeep steals US ranger raptor thunder and launches just ahead of it in 2023, or eats its lunch just after the US debut. I'd rather they make it irrelevant just before launch. Ranger raptor only has 33s so i'm sure ford will counter with 35s or maybe 37s soon as they've been trying to compensate with stuffing in larger tires lately.

Modified WL will look very good.

It would be a true shame if Ram and Gladiator do not get a 392 option before the GME T6 or hybrids take over.

Did no one notice the giant stripe coming down from the A pillar and covering the entire rubicon logo?

Another week, another teaser. Earlier this morning, the Jeep® and Mopar brands dropped their fifth teaser (sixth vehicle) image for another new concept vehicle for the annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari. Usually, both brands will release a plethora of teaser images of their intended concept vehicles for the event in the red rock region. However, this year they have decided to release an image every week and spread out the excitement leading up to the event.

This week, it appears that the Jeep® Performance Parts (JPP) catalog of accessories will be the center focus of this latest concept. Based on a Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 4xe, this concept appears to have ditched its roof and put an Overlanding rack over the passenger compartment.
