Part time means you shift it into 4wd still...unless it's electronically controlled and because of ATC will engage the transfer case.

Full-time (like landcruisers) are always in 4wd and left in high.

Gmc sierra has

2wd hi
4wd auto
4wd hi
4wd lo

it’s the greatest ******* system ever. 4wd auto uses activates a clutch based transfer case that sends power to the front wheels when the rears slip. So it’s the same in function to awd.

The best of all worlds. I think a few other trucks have a similar system.

Wood lease Jeep Wrangler. The leases are not bad & you can always decide if keeping it is for you. Iím tempted to do this.

Yes solid axle.

Jeeps are a very specific vehicle, you have to want one to really love it.
We have the 80 series land cruiser. I have one, I love it!

Talk to me when you have a traction management system for snow, mud, rock, etc.

(that I definitely, totally need for my 95% highway driving)

If anyone's interested. I watched these this morning. New Doug Demuro video:


Which then made me look up his old 2018 Wrangler video.

He's okay. I don't watch all of his videos, but some are pretty interesting.

He's good if you want to know quirks and features. Not good if you want to know how it drives/performs. I'll usually watch up to the point he starts driving, then I close out the video.

Well yeah me too. I wouldn't spend $62K on a Jeep Wrangler.

$45K-ish on a new Rubicon doesn't sound so bad tho, especially with the new redesign. Apparently 2018 and up it drives like a regular SUV (i.e.: smooth/comfy).

Test drove a 2019 rubicon today. Fully loaded and man I loved it! Body colored genders and top reminded the lady of a G wagon lol.

Was $58,730 and they offered it down to $53,100. Said their best rates are 4% OAC wtf? Chevy or ford have 0% for 72 months wtf!?

I just couldn’t do it. That’s too much for a Wrangler although I absolutely LOVED it.

Ouch that's still a lot. But I mean they hold their value well and people love the car.

How did it drive? A lot of reviews say it drives like a regular SUV now. Smooth and comfortable vs. bumpy/loud like the "old" ones.

I owned a 2013 Sahara which had OEM moderate tires vs this Rubicon had bigger ones so not an exact comparison. Also rented plenty of jeeps in Hawaii or whatever so I am pretty familiar with the older ones?

This new one definitely drove very nice and the 2.0 turbo motor blew my mind. I was expecting it to have no low end but it felt fast. Not like man ok this is decent but like WTF is a jeep going this fast for? Googled it and I guess they use the auto start/ stop starter motor for a 73hp boost to get it moving off the line or something tricky like that.

The jeep road about as smooth as my CTR, little bumpy, some tire noise, etc. Can't say omg it's a night and day difference over the old models but it definitely drives nice. To me the motor was the most shocking part especially for a 4000lb+ body on frame jeep with the aerodynamics of a box to get 22MPG combined from a 2.0

I honestly still really want one but for 60k after taxes it has to be the gladiator with the diesel for me.

Of course they had to throw in a special edition Moab.

So which one has a 2.0L? Unless I can't find it, everything here has a 3.6L V6?



So does that mean the regular Rubicon doesn't have CarPlay?

It might still have CarPlay, but only with the standard 7" screen.
