The Jeep® brand surprised the Wrangler community today at the 2023 Chicago Auto Show (CAS), by introducing the Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 20th Anniversary Edition. Offered on both the four-door electrified plug-in hybrid (PHEV) Rubicon 4xe and HEMI-powered Rubicon 392, the Rubicon 20th Anniversary Edition is the most capable Wranglers ever offered from the factory.
“Twenty years ago, a small group of enthusiastic Jeep engineers affectionately known as the ‘Lunatic Fringe,’ with grit and determination and their personal credit cards, designed, engineered and developed the most capable Wrangler yet – the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon – and over-delivered on everyone’s expectations because they knew it was what Jeep customers wanted,” said Jim Morrison, senior vice president and head of Jeep brand North America. “Today the Rubicon model represents about a quarter of overall Wrangler sales, with more than 700,000 sold worldwide, and include the electrified Rubicon 4xe, the best-selling and most capable PHEV in America. That same spirit of determination and ingenuity that led to the creation of the Wrangler Rubicon lives on in these new 20th Anniversary special editions, which for the first time, bring available 37s to the Wrangler, providing unmatched capability.”
Offered as a limited run, the 2023 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 4xe 20th Anniversary Edition, will be available for ordering starting tomorrow at your local Jeep dealer. Now, keep in mind Jeep is only building 4,000 units. The Rubicon 4xe 20th Anniversary Edition will have a starting U.S. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $69,585 (excluding $1,795 for destination charges, taxes, and other fees).
