Very clearly inspired by the iconic Wrangler, the 2024 Recon shares some of the familiar looks and presence we’re used to, though we’ll be the first to admit we’re also seeing a hint of Ford Bronco Sport in the design. . Still, the Jeep Recon’s new exterior design is touted as a testament to the brand’s evolution, and the Recon serves more as an exclamation point on the aesthetic journey so far. An illuminated seven-slot grille therefore seems appropriate.
The Recon will have removable doors and windows and a one-touch power roof – just like a Wrangler. Exposed door hinges are not only a retro design element, they also make the process of removing doors easier. The Recon includes underbody protection, blue tow hooks and aggressive off-road tires to stay in line with the record the SUV should follow in the Wrangler’s footsteps in the harsh outdoor conditions. We see the same harsh approach and departure angles and overhangs that identify it as extremely capable.
Jeep didn’t give us details on the new color scheme for the Jeep Recon SUVs, but we did see it in lime and bottle green, an olive exterior and a sleeker gray – and all of these are surprisingly suited to its appearance. . Press images also show a distinctive blue-framed black hood. We are also assured that, like other Jeeps, it will be highly customizable.
