Is the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Is Right for You?

There is without a doubt a level of rugged, outdoorsy cool that comes with any Jeep Wrangler. Right out of the base-level box, a Wrangler can do more off-road than just about any other SUV out there. The trade-offs for that insane capability include a rough ride on paved roads and power windows as optional equipment.

There are a few trim levels for the Wrangler, with the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon sitting at the top of the rock-strewn hill. The Rubicon includes all of the modern tech included with other trims plus a lot of hardcore, heavy-duty off-road equipment.

But the Rubicon costs about $10,000 more than a base Wrangler Sport. Is there really that much of a difference? (Yes.) And do you need that much capability? (Probably not.) Read on to find out what the differences are for each Wrangler trim level and what exactly you’re getting for Rubicon money.
