Didn't see any Off-Road+ button on that yellow Rubi. Also answered my question about whether the Rubicons would have the red dash. I'm pleased to see this one didn't. Also Tommy didn't know how to lift the back seat.

All the comments so far are how either 1. it's stupid, or 2. The tech (and Jeep) is unreliable and shouldn't be trusted, but Yeah Hemi 392! [facepalm]

It’s almost exactly the same one I ordered. Hopefully I’ll have my hands on mine in just a few weeks.

Road Tests must be embargoed until a certain date. We'll likely see them all post the same day from multiple sources.

I wonder if that was one of the ones the guy posted about last week he saw going west in Indiana. Would make sense.

Not a single thing I did not know. Would have been nice if he folded up the back seats...

doubtful, you can see the concept vehicles in the background, I assume these were all brought by jeep for their press event a couple days ago.

Wish it was offered in a 6-speed.
With the unique way the electric motor is entrained as part of the transmission, different from other hybrids (I am not technical but I know it's unique) I wonder if that would preclude the ability to have a true manual transmission?

There's a manual on the Magneto concept.

The Magneto concept brings up a disadvantage point on an all-electric off-roading vehicle. What happens when you deplete the 12v battery while doing a winch recovery? There is no alternator that will recharge anything.
