From the article:

The Recon will sit alongside the Wrangler, confirmed Jeep’s European boss, Antonella Bruno, but the two cars will have slightly different sizes and positions in the range.

“The Recon in Europe will be a white-space car,” said Bruno. “It’s a unique car, very boxy and very capable. It will sit in a lower part of the [market] segment to the Wrangler.”

Lower part of the segment? So it is smaller/cheaper? That's kind of what I was hoping for. Like something maybe around the size of the last Liberty.

Edit: Well Car&Driver says it'll start at $60k so that's running counter to what Autocar is saying. Starting at $60k is like the mid-to-high level of the Wrangler Market.

I hope they differentiate the trim levels given this is targeting a different clientele; we know per the Jeep press release that there is a Moab version, likely top of the line

The articles all seem to conflict tho, going against the Defender in Europe would make me think premium to Wrangler, but theyre indicating this sits below? Confusing for sure unless Wrangler moves further upmarket and drops <Sahara trims
