The 2024 Jeep Wrangler 4XE Unlimited Rubicon stands as a testament to Jeep’s heritage of producing the world’s most capable and iconic SUVs. As the brand celebrates its remarkable milestone of selling five million Wranglers, this latest model not only honors its storied past but also forges ahead with groundbreaking advancements in off-road capability and technology. My time with the Wrangler 4XE was nothing short of an exhilarating blend of fun and adventure.  Whenever I am driving a Jeep, I feel free, on road, off-road, Jeep truly is an American Icon. The Sky one touch power top adds to the outdoor adventure as you can roll the top back with the touch of a button. Let’s take a deeper look at my week with the Wrangler 4XE Unlimited Rubicon.

Exterior

The Wrangler 4XE Unlimited Rubicon commands attention with its Earl Clear Coat Exterior Paint, a unique blue with gray undertones. It is a subtle but unique color and it got a lot of compliments during my test week. This latest model maintains its iconic heritage while incorporating modern elements like a revamped seven-slot grille and updated LED lighting. Sitting on 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels, it presents a rugged yet sporty appearance, suitable for diverse environments from city streets to untamed trails. The Winch makes this Jeep look even more capable and rugged.

Interior

The interior of the Wrangler Rubicon is a harmonious blend of comfort and functionality. It features an intuitive design with high-quality materials and finishes, offering a premium feel. The cockpit is designed for practicality and comfort, with a focus on driver experience. The 12.3-inch Uconnect 5 touchscreen radio is a highlight, providing a seamless interface for navigation and entertainment. The cabin comfortably accommodates passengers and cargo, suitable for various activities, from daily commuting to outdoor adventures. I really like where Jeep is heading with tech in the interior and also comfort and safety.

Engine and Transmission

Underneath the hood, the Wrangler 4XE boasts a 2.0L I4 DOHC DI Turbo PHEV engine paired with an 8-Speed Automatic 8P75PH PHEV transmission. This setup delivers exceptional efficiency and power, evident in its quick acceleration and smooth drive. The engineering of the 4XE highlights Jeep’s commitment to performance and environmental sustainability, offering excellent fuel efficiency without compromising on power.

Drive Experience

The driving experience of the Wrangler 4XE Unlimited Rubicon is uniquely satisfying. Its agility and ease of maneuverability in traffic and tight spaces stand out, thanks to its precise steering and excellent turning radius. The innovative automatic convertible top feature adds a new dimension to the driving experience, allowing open-air freedom at the touch of a button. The SUV’s off-road capabilities are unparalleled, living up to Jeep’s reputation for building vehicles that conquer challenging terrains effortlessly. I found the Wrangler 4XE to be a really comfortable and secure vehicle for city driving and off-road. I always seemed to have just the right amount of power needed and the height of The Rubicon made it easy to see traffic and obstacles ahead. Overall the Jeep delivers a great driving experience.
