2020 Honda Rubicon

Postby Uncle Jesse » Sat Sep 07, 2019 9:16 am

Just bought a 2020 Honda Rubicon DCT and it gets 2 thumbs way up from me. They finally addressed the issue of going into reverse. Now you don't have to pull the brake or completely stop and it skips neutral. It's now faster going from forward to reverse than a foot shift

The thumb shift buttons will override automatic temporarily then it will go back to automatic

I usually get a new Honda every 2 years and they always feel like what I just had but this one is a big improvement over what I traded in

That is one sweet looking Honda. They have been needing some cosmetic changes for years. Although subtle, i'd say they did a nice job of it with that one.

That thing is nice looking. I have been wanting to test drive the Talon. Just wondering what are the 2020 Rubicons going for ? I have a 2016.

$9500 for the deluxe. Same price for camo or the green that I got. Really wanted a camo but this one was there and I was ready to buy

One thing I've noticed, I stretched it out and 45 was all it would do. My rancher would do upper 50's

They've also made the racks to accept dry storage boxes. I got one for the front

I picked up a leftover 2019 foreman, es, eps about 2 weeks ago. Pretty good deal.

Got it up to 53 on an old country road this past saturday.

Gotta find me some tires/wheels for it now.

Yeah that speed is a head scratcher. That’s rated a 520 right?

Not that a man needs to go any faster but would have me questioning its overall power.

Yes, it is a 520. It's not that I want to go faster than that, it sounds like it's revving high at 30 to 35. I guess they geared it low so it would handle bigger tires. It also has low range too which seems unnecessary to me

I'm not a speed demon but I do run some roads on the farm. I've got one field that is 6 miles one way from my house

Not to side track here but a buddy of mine just bought one and it’s sick. I was at the Kubota dealer that’s across from Honda so I stopped there too just to look. They’re $20k before adding anything. Think I’ll keep my Pioneer 700.
If it ain't broke don't fix it.
