- the wrangler rubicon 392 is powered by a 470-hp v-8, and it's only available as a four-door model.
the v-8–powered jeep wrangler rubicon 392 will go on sale by the end of the spring, initially available as a fully loaded launch edition (pictured above). this 470-hp version of the wrangler is only available with four doors, and the launch edition will start at $74,995. cheaper models should follow soon after. (if you were wondering, ford said that the 2021 ford bronco, the wrangler's new competitor, won't offer a v-8.)
the wrangler rubicon 392 sits 2.0 inches taller than the standard rubicon, and the launch edition is equipped with a hood scoop, body-colored fender flares and hardtop, and an dual-mode exhaust system. loads of features such leather seats, an upgraded infotainment system, and driver-assistance features are all standard. half doors, a power softtop, an off-road camera, and a trailer package are optional. inside, the launch edition features bronze rubicon 392 stitching on the seats.
under the hood of all 392 models is a naturally aspirated 6.4-liter v-8, also found in 392 versions of the dodge challenger, charger, and durango. it produces 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque and comes standard with four-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. jeep says it'll do 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and run the quarter-mile in 13.0 seconds.
a set of 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels are standard, and they're wrapped with standard 33-inch bfgoodrich k02 all-terrain tires, though falken wildpeak mud-terrain rubber is available. rubicon 392s also get a two-speed transfer case, dana 44 axles with electronic locking differentials, fox shocks, an electronic front sway-bar disconnect, and a 3.73 final-drive ratio.
the 2021 jeep wrangler rubicon 392 will arrive in dealerships by the end of spring, and it will initially be available only in this fully equipped trim. we expect cheaper models to be available later this year.
