For 2012 the Wrangler received a new engine, the Pentastar V6. It delivers significantly more horsepower, a total of 280 ponies and more torque, 260 pound-feet to be exact. That’s a 40 percent increase in power, and a 10 percent increase in torque. More juice is good! And it even gets better mileage. The 2012 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is by far the most comfortable and amenity -loaded Wrangler ever. Inside the cabin you will find redundant steering wheel controls, a refined dash and center console, as well as things like heated seats and mirrors. Jeep has not forgotten why most people buy Wranglers either, so its capability off-road has been enhanced too. In the Rubicon model you will find sturdy Dana 44 axles front and rear, a locking rear differential, and stock water-fording capability of 30 inches. The Jeep’s wide stance and short wheelbase also make it a blast to drive on pavement. While it’s truly at home on the trail, you will find its track performance more than just capable.
