New LEGO Technic Jeep Wrangler features button-operated front steering system, axle-articulation suspension
Jeep and the LEGO Group have revealed the newest LEGO Technic model, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. This first-ever LEGO model of a Jeep SUV is ready to face any adventure.
The new model of this powerful SUV allows LEGO fans of all ages to recreate the 4x4 systems, rugged tires, fold-down rear seats and classic seven-slot grille in LEGO Technic form. The 665-piece model also features a button-operated front steering system and an axle-articulation suspension.
"The Jeep Wrangler is an icon in the off-road world," said Lars Thygesen, Designer, LEGO Technic. "The Rubicon has a lot of the iconic details loved by 4x4 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."
