2020 Jeep® Wrangler Rubicon Recon Announced

2020 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Yukon, OK

It’s back — the 2020 Jeep® Wrangler Rubicon Recon is coming, and it promises to be one of the most impressive off-road-ready vehicles Jeep® has ever put out. And given the Jeep® reputation for ruggedness, that’s really saying something.

“We are excited to bring the Wrangler Rubicon Recon model back to the Jeep® lineup as it represents the ultimate combination of Rubicon off-road 4×4 capability with a unique appearance package that will resonate with our most diehard off-road enthusiasts,” said Head of Jeep® Brand for FCA North America Jim Morrison. “With the return of the Wrangler Rubicon Recon, we’re bolstering the wide appeal Jeep® Wrangler already offers by expanding our legendary Rubicon lineup.”

Available to order now at Westpointe CDJR in Yukon, the 2020 Jeep® Wrangler Rubicon Recon stands out with unique features like heavy-duty rock rails, a matte black fender vent with American flag decal, and unique 17-inch black-finished aluminum wheels. While the stealthiness of the Wrangler Rubicon Recon is perhaps best appreciated with Black paint, the exclusive details really pop with available colors like Ocean Blue, Sarge, Hellayella, and Firecracker Red.

While the 2020 Jeep® Wrangler Rubicon Recon looks incredible, the way it delivers on- and off-road is somehow even more impressive. The Wrangler Rubicon Recon adds Dana® front and rear heavy-duty axles and a Rock-Trac® NV241 two-speed transfer case that enables you to conquer even the most rugged terrain with relative ease, and its 33-inch Falken Wildpeak Mud-Terrain tires give you all the traction you’ll need even when the going gets tough.

When you factor in its premium interior, replete with red seat belts and PUR-wrapped mid-seat bolsters featuring red accent stitching, the 2020 Jeep® Wrangler Rubicon Recon is one of the most all-around impressive vehicles you’ll find anywhere today. And just where can you find the new Wrangler Rubicon Recon? Right here at Westpointe CDJR in Yukon.

Retro Dodge and Jeep® Video Games

Jeep Racing Game | Yukon, OK

Throughout the years, car enthusiasts have been blessed with a number of Dodge and Jeep® video games to play. The opportunity to virtually race in a Viper or go off-road in a Wrangler might not offer as much adrenaline as being behind the wheel of the real deal, but it’s certainly still fun.

Jeep® Jamboree: Off-Road Adventure

The first entry on the list is the 1992 Game Boy classic Jeep® Jamboree. Players could enjoy traversing 20 unique tracks in a rugged Jeep Wrangler. Your goal is to come in first place against the computer or a nearby friend with a Game Boy and a link cable.

Viper Racing

PC gamers had the joy of racing a Dodge Viper in 1998’s Viper Racing. Players were able to customize and race their Viper in a realistic environment that featured a meaty campaign mode.

Jeep® Thrills

A decade later, Fiat-Chrysler collaborated on Jeep® Thrills for PS2 and Wii. Players had the option to choose from nearly 20 different models from the automaker’s history, including the Willys MB and Comanche.

Dodge Racing: Charger vs. Challenger

In 2009, Charger vs. Challenger was released for Wii and Nintendo DS. The game pitted two of Dodge’s most beloved performance cars head-to-head in racing challenges.

New Jeep® Commercials Spotlight Jeremy Renner’s Music

Jeremy Renner | Jeep | Yukon, OK

As if being the awesome Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe wasn’t enough, Jeremy Renner is now getting his original music out to the world with a little help from Jeep®.

Renner has three spots in the “Summer of Love” Jeep® campaign where he uses the versatile performance of three Jeep® vehicles to get to his concert in the middle of nowhere.

In “Main Attraction,” Jeremy is at a black-tie event and grows bored of the theatrics. He quickly heads out, jumping into a Jeep® Grand Cherokee. While his song “Main Attraction” plays, we see him take the back roads to a roadhouse for a better party.

In “Nomad,” Renner sits in a remote diner trying to write a song. He looks out and sees a Jeep® Compass and begins to imagine a thrilling road trip in the adventurous SUV. It showcases the Compass’s off-road capabilities while his song “Nomad” plays — until he’s snapped back to reality in the diner again.

The last spot features the Jeep® Wrangler. Jeremy’s song “Sign” plays as he leaves the diner and chooses to drive a couple’s Wrangler instead of taking the tour bus. He takes it off-road for a thrilling trip to the roadhouse for his concert.

Oliver Francois, Chief Marketing Officer, FCA, said of Renner, “He is a true Renaissance man with talents that go well beyond acting, as he continues to show us with the introduction of his new music, which is authentic, honest rock n’ roll, and aligns with the same spirit and philosophy of the Jeep® brand.”

Jurassic Park Jeep Recreated by University of New Orleans Student

Jurassic Park Jeep

A student at the University of New Orleans has recreated the Jurassic Park Jeep, one of the most iconic movie cars of all time thanks to the cultural phenomenon that was (and is) Jurassic Park.

Michael Adams, a University of New Orleans engineering student and Jeep Wrangler owner, turned his 2003 Wrangler into the Jurassic Park Jeep with the help of a local body shop. The body shop painted on the stripes and attached the Jurassic Park logo. Then, to make it a real replica, they attached a radio antenna and light bar, new tires, and other accents like painted mirrors.

Adams didn’t just alter his Jeep into the Jurassic Park Jeep for kicks, though. He takes it to events like comic conventions and lets attendees pose by it and takes pictures for donations as small as $1, which he then gives to St. Joseph’s Hospice Foundation. Adams has so far raised more than $1,500 for the foundation.

Adams is now considering moving onto another movie-themed project and replicating the Ford Explorer from the Jurassic Park film. If you want to buy your own Jeep to turn into the iconic movie version, give us a call today at Westpointe CDJR near Oklahoma City, OK!
