July 14, 2021 , Windsor, Ontario - Today at the 2021 Chicago Auto Show, the Jeep® brand demonstrated again its legendary 4x4 capability, go-anywhere attitude and open-air freedom, announcing two updates to the 2021 Wrangler, including the new Xtreme Recon Package with 35-inch tires and Sunrider Flip Top for Hardtop.

“As an icon built around 80 years of unmatched 4x4 capability, the Wrangler has always pushed the limit of what a Jeep can do off road, and the new Xtreme Recon Package with 35-inch tires straight from the factory pushes that limit even further,” said Jim Morrison, Vice President, Jeep Brand North America. “While the Xtreme Recon Package sets the benchmark for 4x4 capability, the easy-to-use Sunrider Flip Top for Hardtop fortifies Wrangler’s open-air spirit.”

Priced at a Canadian manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $4,995 the new Jeep Wrangler Xtreme Recon Package includes: 
  • LT315/70R17C (35-inch) BF Goodrich KO2 all-terrain tires
  • 17-inch by 8-inch beadlock capable wheels
  • Swing gate reinforcement
  • 4.56:1 axle ratio
  • 3.8 centimetre (1.5-inch) factory suspension lift with uniquely tuned shocks
The results: Best-in-class approach angle, departure angle, ground clearance and water fording capability:
  • Approach angle – 47.4 degrees
  • Breakover angle – 26.7 degrees
  • Departure angle – 40.4 degrees
  • Ground clearance – 32.7 cm (12.9 inches)
  • Water fording – 85.3 (33.6 inches)
Canadian customers can now order the Jeep Wrangler Xtreme Recon package on the Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited 3.6-litre automatic with eTorque. Production at the Toledo (Ohio, USA) Assembly Plant will start in August.

A new 4.88:1 axle ratio will be available on the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon later in 2021. When paired with the six-speed manual transmission, this optional axle ratio delivers a best-in-class 100:1 crawl ratio for increased wheel torque and control when navigating off-road obstacles. The 4.88:1 axle ratio will be available for ordering later this year on Wrangler Rubicon two-door and four-door models equipped with the 3.6-litre V-6 engine.

Sunrider Flip Top for Hardtop
Available on all Wrangler models, the new Sunrider Flip Top for Hardtop offers a front-row soft top that quickly and easily flips back for an enhanced open-air driving experience. Priced at a Canadian MSRP of $1,125, the Sunrider Flip Top for Hardtop is constructed from ultra-premium black twill fabric common on many high-end luxury convertibles, making it capable of protecting against inclement weather. The new ready-to-install top comes with mounting rails and hardware included and easily installs in place of the hardtop Freedom panels.
