Default Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 1941 Edition

Jeep JT Pickup Racing 2019 KOH Mopar loads this Wrangler Rubicon with aftermarket components and harkens back to the beginning.

The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 1941 arrives at the Geneva International Motor Show as a Mopar-tuned off-roader showing off a variety of accessories that can improve the machine's capability and appearance. The edition's name comes from the birth year of the original military Jeep from Willys.

The customized Wrangler Rubicon remains street legal in Europe but has useful upgrades for rugged terrain like a two-inch (50.8-millimeter) suspension lift, snorkel air intake, and rock rails. To dress up the appearance, the Wrangler wears lots of black accents over the Hella Yella exterior paint.

The pieces include a matte black grille, in addition to black pieces for the door handles, door sills, fuel door, mirror caps, and mudguards. The roof has the mesh sun bonnet top. Decals on the hood and doors proclaim the 1941 date.

The new JL generation of the Wrangler is currently available in Europe. Unlike North American examples, buyers have the option to get a 2.2-liter turbodiesel four-cylinder making 200 horsepower (149 kilowatts) and 332 pound-feet of torque (450 Newton-meters). It hooks up to a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic. The 2.0-liter turbocharged gas-fueled four-cylinder is also a choice for European customers, and the 3.6-liter V6 only goes to markets in Africa and the Middle East.



The diesel-powered Wrangler's off-road equipment is slightly different than the gas-fueled models. For example, the two-speed Command-Trac tech on the Sport and Sahara trims has 3.73-ratio axles, instead of a 3.45 ratio. A limited-slip rear differential is optional. The Rubicon gets the more aggressive, two-speed Rock-Trac system with Dana 44 axles, electronic sway bar disconnect, and electric-looking differentials at the front and rear. It uses a 3.73 ratio, instead of the 4.10 ratio from Rubicons with the gas-powered engine.

Order forms indicate a diesel-powered Wrangler is coming to America, but it would have a 3.0-liter V6 with stop-start tech. The output is still a mystery, but the figures could be in the neighborhood of 260 hp (194 kW) and 442 lb-ft (599 Nm) of torque from the diesel-powered Jeep Grand Cherokee.
