If you’re thinking about adding the 2021 Jeep Rubicon to your wish list or you already have, here are some things you might be interested to know

The Rubicon is a Wrangler option that was introduced in 2003 to give Jeepers a few range of different options while being equipped with more off-roading capabilities. The 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon hit the market this year to present a more sporty ride on and off the road. Like Motor Biscuit said: The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is built for those who are prepared to explore the Jeep’s potential to go just about anywhere.

This 2021 model boasts angular aesthetics, with a sharp silhouette, trim with electronic locking differentials, an electronic sway bar, special off-road shocks, and 33-inch all-terrain tires to tackle tough and rocky terrain. These are just a few of the features that have prompted Jeep lovers to inquire about its credibility.

In order to make that easier decision easier, we’re highlighting some key points that make the 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon stand out among competitors:


Here are some more things to keep in mind:

  • For the two-door Wrangler, there aren’t too many ways in which the 2021 model year differs from the one before.

  • The Rubicon can be equipped with a Rock-Trac four-wheel-drive system if anyone wants to upgrade.

  • Select trims can be enhanced with a trail camera that faces forward and can provide an unobstructed view of what lies ahead.

  • You can easily connect smartphones with in-vehicle infotainment systems through the available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto technology.

The Rubicon package embodies what a Jeep should be: uncompromisingly off-road capable. It does this so well that even people who will never use low range or the lockers flock to the Rubicon because it is the quintessential Jeep.

It boasts a stronger transfer case with a lower low range and front and rear Dana 44s factory-loaded with locking differentials and lower gears. The package also offers some additional rocker protection and off-road-oriented mud-terrain tires.

In a rundown published by Four Wheel Trends, Rubicon comes with standard, selectable electronic lockers, suitable for drivers that need on-demand traction. To be precise, they come with Tru-Lok differentials for both the front and rear axles.

  • The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is the only Jeep that comes from the factory with default lockers and axles, both the front and rear. It is equipped with the Dana 44 generation of axles.

Dana 44:

These axles are beefier than the one you might be familiar with. All Wrangler models today carry these type of axles with a gear ratio of 3.21 or 3.73. But Rubicon models come with a standard 4.10 gear ratio, with either the 3.73 or the 4.10 at the front.

The size of the gear ring in a Dana 44 axle is 8.5 inches while the width of the axle is 1.31 inches. Coupled with the equipped locker, the Rubicon provides an amazing experience even when the vehicle loses traction.

It is activated from a switch mounted on your Jeep’s dash. This bolts the differential center through a positive mechanical lock. When disengaged, it leaves your Rubicon running on an open differential for easy driving on the road, but when it is engaged, it gives your vehicle a solid drive by meshing its precision-forged gears.

Differential Lockers:

Differential lockers distribute power equally to the two wheels on an axle when they are engaged. Power on both wheels will remain constant regardless of the resistance each one receives. This way, the vehicle maintains full traction as long as the locker is engaged.

We mentioned this briefly earlier, but most of Rubicon’s features are dedicated to off-road performance, thanks to its differentials that help distribute power equally to the wheels when crawling over rocks or traversing uneven grounds.

Improved Suspension:

The Rubicon has a better suspension system for off-roading than other Jeep models. It’s the only model that comes with Electronic Front Sway Bar Disconnect, which is a savior on harsh trails, you can easily disconnect them remotely to improve suspension when the ride becomes uncomfortable.

Its suspension system includes tunable valves and high-pressure monotube shocks. The shocks allow for better absorption of vibrations and shocks while the vehicle is going over rocks or other roadblocks, while the valves allow the system to be fully functional in different environmental situations such as when it’s raining and very muddy.

Advanced Trim Model:

One of the distinguishing features that make the Rubicon such an excellent pick for rock-crawling and off-roading experiences, while also making it expensive, is its crawl ratio. There’s no doubt that the Rubicon is better outfitted to tackle challenges, it’s the only trim model with the Rock-Trac system 4×4 driving mode. We mentioned this earlier, but we want to drive this point home a bit more.

Cars with good crawl ratios have an easier time getting over rocks and other obstructions. This Rock-Trac system enhances the Rubicon’s ability to crawl over rocks and other steep inclines without slipping, with a crawl ratio of 73.1:1. This makes it easier for Rubicons to go rock crawling, making them a good pick for off-roading. It’s a better crawler than the Sport and Sahara.

eep Rubicons tend to be more expensive than other types of Jeeps because they are fully geared for off-roading use as soon as they are purchased, and they include several unique features (as discussed earlier) that help the Jeep perform well on mountain areas and other off-roading sites.
