    The yellow Rubicon didn’t come with the red dash...

    Rubicon has the 31” BFG Mud tires and turn light signal in the side mirrors.
    Basically all identical to the Chinese version vídeo i once posted here.

    Still would like to know details on transfer cases, differentials, axle ratios, diff lockers and/or limited slip, engine performance.
    Manley did not say anything about the petrol engine being mild hibrid so I guess it is just a 2,0L turbo gas only.

    Yes, once again they state that

    "Both systems feature the new Selec-Trac full-time two-speed transfer case for a continuous monitoring and management of the torque sent to front and rear wheels."

    Either another mistake or the EU rubicon has selec-trac besides rock-trac, which would question why they wouldn't offer this in the US?

    On Sahara the only difference seem to be the presence of the air vents, isn't it?

    The Rubicon hood looks the same to me from the press release pictures. Only the fenders are higher on the US version.

    Can you please confirm which transfer case is in the Rubicon? Much confusion going around after pictures and press release state that the Rubicon has a full time Selec-Trac system. Thanks in advance!

    As many detailed pictures as possible (I'm more interested in the Rubicon version) :) And although I doubt they will give price information, it worth asking a question about pricing.

    So no more Pentastar then for Europe; which kind of makes sense since the 4 banger turbo is around now.

    Ah, one more from me if it's possible and you don't mind (btw, thanks a lot for willing to take "our voice" with you in there): would it be possible to order a Wrangler in Europe with factory lift kit and/or other original mechanical add-ons?

    I've read the press release again. I may be wrong here, but my feeling is that they are trying to (re)use terms in different contexts. In the press release they are referring the available 4x4 systems as a whole (i.e. transfer case, lockers, etc) as rock-track and command-track, while the transfer case alone is referred as selec-track.

    It may be a mistake, but it may also be a departure from the old nomenclature. Confusing, indeed!
