Although Jeeps had been known for their versatility and utility since debuting in the ‘40s and evolving again with the ‘80s overhaul, 2003 saw the release of the brand’s most rugged and capable vehicle yet.

Tailor-made for the most extreme off-road enthusiasts, the Jeep Rubicon began as a concept in the late ‘80s but became available as a trim package for the Wrangler with larger, all-terrain tires, rock rails, and front and rear locking differentials. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Rubicon, and Jeep has just unveiled its celebratory limited editions of the 4xe and 392 models.

While both vehicles come with a new triple hoop grill guard, a half-inch suspension lift, an 83-piece tool kit, and special 20th-anniversary decals and badging, the powertrain differs slightly between the two. The new 4xe edition runs on a plug-in hybrid engine with 375hp and 470lb.ft of torque, along with 21mi of electric range. With 35-inch standard tires and a 37-inch option, the new 392 edition runs on a V-8 engine boasting 470hp and 470lb.ft of torque with a 4.5-second 0 to 60 time.
