The 2017 Jeep Wrangler is already good-looking as it is but it appears that the automaker is not satisfied with "good" alone as it gives the Wrangler a Rubicon Recon Edition. Accordingly, the Rubicon Recon Edition will be taking the place of the outgoing Rubicon Hard Rock that has one of the consumers' favorite flavors.

"Rubicon Recon is the perfect Wrangler for our most loyal, diehard off-road enthusiasts who love to tackle the most demanding trails," said Mike Manley, head of the Jeep brand globally in a report.
