2007 Rubi



Yummi. For those that are open minded, and can appreciate a good Offroader, here are some pics and the specs of the new Jeep Rubicon.
It is supposed to be highly improved, more versatile, and road friendly(don't know how that is gonna fly with all the hard core Jeepers).



"It will come in three models: X, Sahara, and Rubicon. The longtime 4.0L engine will be gone, although we've been warning you of that for a while. We understood early on that it would be something other than the 3.7L V-6 from the Liberty; it's a 230.5ci 3.8L V-6 that will make 205hp at 5,200 rpm and 240lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm, hey, exactly like the Chrysler and Dodge minivans! It will have a compression ratio of 9.6:1. A six-speed transmission will be standard (still the NSG370), while a four-speed auto (42LRE again) will be optional. A diesel will be available for the international market."

I like it. I always liked it this model but found not practical for my needs (urban use) plus it is a harsh ride.
Thisnew one reminds me of a smaller Suzuki Vitara's.
If they offered this in diesel in Canada(they probably will) I would be interested in with one.
The way top comes down is also a great feature.

Yeah I've always loved jeeps, but they're not very practical in the city.

How do you guys figure they are not practical in the city? They are small, decent on gas and the TJ's and up have a decent ride. There is plenty of power and you can park them almost anywhere.

I dont see why!!! Look at all the SUV's!!! They are NOT more practical...huge size, bad on gas, hard to park...and the list goes on! The only thing not practical for a Jeep is the cargo space, which is almost non existant...making it the reason why i dont own a YJ/TJ...yet!

ok, you should seriously relax. I didnt try to say this thread is useless, all I was trying to say that it looks pretty much identical.

And so does 84- and 89 e30's, and 92 and 97 e36, as well as 90, and 96 e34's. Your point? This is A HUGE change for a Jeep. You just don't realize it because you are narrow minded and ignorant.
This thread is in Off topic for a reason, and is for those who are interested.

Yes and No.

Yes, they are more rugged, less modernized, take a bigger beating, and can be fixed in your back yard. This is why I like them. Direct comparison can be a XJ vs ZJ.

No, becuase they lack a lot of the tecnology, and evoution(leafs vs coils), civil manner(take that as you will), and they break more, are more prone to expensive damage, and usually tend to loose their appeal to the younger crowd.
IMO.

Exaclty, thats why when 2004 and 2005 BMW 330i for example came out, we dont start thread. Look, there is a 2005 BMW 330i.
