Jeep and LEGO revealed its first LEGO Technic model of a Jeep SUV – the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. This intricate and adventurous build promises an epic adventure for every builder.
Builders will be able to re-create the Jeep’s “high-performance 4×4 systems, rugged tires, fold-down rear seats and the classic seven-slot grille in LEGO Technic form,” according to the press release.
“The Jeep Wrangler is an icon in the off-road world,” said Lars Thygesen, LEGO Technic designer. “The Rubicon has a lot of the iconic details loved by 4×4 fans the world over, so it was important to me to pack as many of the authentic, powerful features of the real vehicle into the LEGO Technic replica.
“I hope LEGO fans and vehicle lovers enjoy all aspects, including the suspension, winch and open-air design that we developed alongside the talented Jeep design team.”
“Ask any Jeep Wrangler owner and they’ll tell you that their vehicle is just a bigger version of this new LEGO set,” said Mark Allen, head of Jeep Design. “The design of the Jeep Wrangler allows them to take it apart, top off, doors off, reconfigure it, add new pieces from our Mopar team, and then put it back together again. This LEGO Technic Jeep Wrangler should bring a new level of joy to our Jeep enthusiasts and help inspire future designers to the brand.”
The Jeep Wrangler is available for purchase January 1, 2021, from LEGO.com, LEGO stores and other retailers for a price of $49.99.
