Is Rubicon a model of Jeep or a just a 4X4 package available on jeeps?

Has the Jeep Rubicon replaced the Jeep Wrangler or does Rubicon indicate a special 4X4 upgrade package available on Wranglers? If it is just a package, what are the upgrades?
Thanks Wraith, exactly what I needed to know

    Some cool stuff about the Rubicon:

    Comes with Dana 44 axles front and rear (stronger than standard Jeep axles)

    Both front and rear axles come with air lockers. This means that when locked in, all 4 wheels are spinning versus only 2 as in regular 4 wheel drive.

    The transfercase is 4:1 low range. Combined with the 4.11 gears in the axles, it makes for a really low geared Jeep. I can put mine in and walk beside it while it puts down the road by itself.

    Also comes standard with 31" Goodyear MT tires, rocker panel protection, tow hooks and fog lights.
