LEGO Technic has been working with the automotive industry for years and recently it’s stepped its game up with the release of Ferrari 488 GTE and McLaren Senna GTR kits. Now, the brick-by-brick design company has worked with Jeep for the very first time and introduces its take on the iconic Wrangler.
The Jeep Wrangler is one of the most iconic American trucks, following on from historic models such as the Willys Jeep as a modern-day 4×4 that’s just as good in the city as it is off-road. In honor of its rugged nature, LEGO Technic has meticulously recreated every detail on the SUV such as its 4×4 systems, rugged tires, fold-down rear seats, and classic seven-slot grille.
At 665 pieces, this is one of the smaller Technic models available. However, by no means has any detail been spared. The hood and doors open, the front wheels are steerable thanks to a button on the steering wheel, and the solid suspension reacts to those who want to take their model on a more tackling terrain.
Finished in a classic shade of Jeep yellow, the LEGO Technic Wranger is complete with “Rubicon” branding, roll cage elements, a spare tire, and more. LEGO says the model will release on January 1, 2021, at LEGO stores and stockists, as well as on the LEGO website, for $49.99 USD.
