Honda’s Rubicon is no speed demon, but it is no slouch either. The 500 engine mated to a transmission that allows you to shift or go automatic, allows you to change how it works depending on your terrain.

The 2019 Honda Rubicon has a lot going for it, including a hybrid model, but you’d be wise to cross-shop its rivals as well. Additional new features for the 2019 Honda Rubicon include a heated steering wheel, and optional heated and power operated front seats on lower-trim models with cloth upholstery. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is optional. In addition to the gas-only model, the 2019 Honda Rubicon is also available as a hybrid with all-wheel drive as standard.

The 2019 Honda Rubicon, on the other hand, is a better package, as we noted in a 2017 First Test, thanks to its smooth powertrain and well-calibrated brakes that smoothly transition between regenerative and mechanical braking. However, since it isn’t a plug-in hybrid, the 2019 Honda Rubicon doesn’t have much EV mode range and can only travel around 0.5 miles on electricity.A rearview camera with rear parking sensors is now standard on all models.
