July 13, 2020 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - The last time the most recognizable vehicle on the planet was offered with a V-8 engine was in the 1981 Jeep® CJ, with its 5.0-liter V-8 that delivered 125 horsepower and 220 lb.-ft. of torque. Jeep enthusiasts have been clamoring for a V-8-powered production Wrangler in recent years and the new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept is an indication they may soon get their wish.

The Jeep brand has introduced its new Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept, powered by a 6.4-liter (392-cubic-inch) V-8 engine that delivers 450 horsepower and 450 lb.-ft. of torque, and a 0-60 mph time of less than five seconds. Dana 44 axles, a full-time two-speed transfer case, electric front and rear axle lockers, 37-inch mud-terrain tires and a Jeep Performance Parts two-inch lift kit from Mopar combine with suspension enhancements, a more robust eight-speed transmission and the massive V-8 power plant to deliver the ultimate fun-to-drive Jeep vehicle with more off-road capability than ever in a Jeep Wrangler.

“Jeep Wrangler enthusiasts have been asking us for a Wrangler V-8 and our new Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept proves that we have the ability to make that happen,” said Jim Morrison, Head of Jeep Brand – FCA North America. “From the recently introduced 29-mpg Wrangler EcoDiesel to our award-winning Jeep Gladiator, and the upcoming Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, Jeep is clearly listening to its customers. We are anxious to gauge their reaction to this new Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept, a vehicle that delivers an incredible and unmatched level of fun-to-drive performance and capability, on- and off-road.”

Power, performance and capability on- and off-road

Jeep Wrangler 392 Rubicon is a V8-Powered Tease of What Could Come

Jul 13, 2020


A V8-powered Wrangler could be coming to a dealership near you soon.


Today is a big day for Ford. After months of teasing, it will reveal the Bronco (and smaller Bronco Sport). So of course Jeep just showed off a more powerful Wrangler to draw some attention away from the big Blue Oval debut.


Meet the Jeep Wranger 392 Rubicon—sadly only a concept, according to the American brand, at least for now. It features the largest V8 in the FCA portfolio behind that iconic seven-slot grille. Power levels are easy to remember: 450 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque. That’s less than other 392-powered SUVs, but the lighter Wrangler isn’t a slouch in straight-line sprints: Jeep says it will click off a 0–60 mph time under five seconds.

A Jeep, especially a Wrangler, is about more than drag times though. The 392 Rubicon features tougher engine mounts and a modified frame for rock-bashing, with aluminum, monotube Fox shocks. A stronger eight-speed auto, dual Dana 44 axles, full-time two-speed transfer case, and locking differentials front and rear ensure more power makes it to the ground no matter the terrain. Also part of the package are 37-inch mudding tires on custom 17-inch beadlock wheels.


Other exterior upgrades include a two-inch lift kit and steel bumper and belly pan.




Jeep touts the 3.73 final drive ratio of the 392 Rubicon for its improved highway efficiency. There’s something decidedly production-ready about that boast, but Jeep is playing coy. It acknowledges Jeep fans have been asking for a V8-powered Wrangler for a long time, but only says the concept “is an indication they may soon get their wish.”


Rounding out the upgrades is a push-button two-mode exhaust system, and a red leather interior with performance steering wheel. Bronze accents include the tow hooks, shocks, springs, wheels, and badging, while the seat stitching is gold.


We can only hope a V8-powered Wrangler is indeed on the cards for the future. It might even end up being a limited-time deal, like the one-and-done 2021 Durango Hellcat. Either way, Ford is expected to stick to turbocharged four- and six-cylinder engines for the Bronco when it debuts later today. Jeep, it seems, gets bragging rights … for now.

After 24 Years, Ford’s Bronco Will Ride Again

On Monday, the auto maker launched the new model of the infamous vehicle.



It’s been three years since Ford said it would bring back the once-popular SUV.



The model was discontinued in 1996 to make room for other SUVs, including the Ford Expedition and the Ford Explorer. The Bronco was notably the vehicle that O.J. Simpson drove during a police chase that attracted millions of TV viewers a couple years before that.


With the Bronco’s return, Ford is set to compete with Chrysler’s Jeep Wrangler. The Jeep brand accounted for 40% of Fiat Chrysler’s U.S. sales during the first quarter. And if the new Bronco proves popular, it could bite into those sales.

Jeep Wrangler gets first V-8 in nearly 40 years
Breana Noble
The Detroit News

Jeep's concept of powering its flagship Wrangler SUV with a V-8 engine for the first time in nearly 40 years just became a reality.
The Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV brand said Tuesday it will produce the four-door 2021 Wrangler Rubicon 392 for sale with the 6.4-liter V-8 engine after teasing the possible product in July just hours ahead of Ford Motor Co.'s reintroduction of the new Bronco to the off-road SUV segment that Jeep dominates.
The 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 packs a 6.4-liter V-8 engine, delivering 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.


The 392 production model offers 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque for a 40% faster 0-60 mph time than the V-6 Rubicon at 4.5 seconds, surpassing even the concept version's figures. Pricing is not yet available on the vehicle that will hit dealerships early next year.
"Why are we doing it?" Micky Bly, Fiat Chrysler's head of global propulsion systems, said during a virtual preview of the vehicle. "Why are we putting a V-8 in here? The reason why is that’s what our customers want. That is what Wrangler fans have been asking for over and over and over."
A 10.3-inch ground clearance, an extra inch over the V-6 Rubicon, gives it Wrangler's best 32½ inches of water traversing. The 392 also gets the desert-rated Jeep Gladiator Mojave hood for a cold-air scoop to keep the engine cool. The Toledo-built vehicle includes a dual-mode exhaust.
The 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 features the Jeep Galidator Mojave hood scoop for increased airflow.


The eight-speed automatic transmission enables the driver to change gears via steering-wheel-mounted aluminum paddle shifters, the first for the Wrangler, or the electronic range select shifter. Bronze badging, interior stitching and 33-inch tires are standard. New half-doors are available.
"This is just more clear messaging that Jeep is not going to stay still," said Karl Brauer, executive analyst of auto research website iSeeCars.com. "Ford has made a massive incursion into traditional Jeep territory, and Jeep will be defending its grounds as aggressively as it can."
The 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 features a standard 8.4-inch screen running the Uconnect infotainment system.


The 392 is not the only signal Jeep has sent that it intends to give the Bronco a fight. Last month, the company's aftermarket parts division Mopar announced a new kit for Wrangler and Gladiator owners to attach side mirrors to their vehicles after taking off their doors. The Bronco comes equipped with the side mirrors mounted to the SUV's A-pillars, keeping them in place when the doors are removed.
Nearly 200,000 people had placed $100 reservations for the Bronco, Ford said last month. Sales of the Wrangler for the first nine months of the year are down 15% year-over-year to more than 150,200.
Bronze badging, stitching and tires differentiate the 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392.


Jeep would have continued to make improvements to the Wrangler without the Bronco to keep up the brand's excitement and momentum, said Stephanie Brinley, auto analyst for IHS Markit, but the competition provides even more incentive to mine through consumer requests.
"Wrangler's owned that race," she said. "They’re not going to give any ground if they don’t have to. At the end of the day, that's good for the customers. They have choice."

The Jeep CJ, the predecessor to the Wrangler, last had a V-8 in 1981, offering 125 horsepower and 220 pound-feet of torque. The V-8 Wrangler likely won't be a large volume vehicle, Brauer noted, but by offering Jeep's fastest Wrangler to date, it may be pulling a card from the recent success of Dodge, which earned a top score in J.D. Power's surveys for initial satisfaction and quality ratings.
The 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 packs a 6.4-liter V-8 engine, delivering 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.


"Dodge has been one of the biggest success stories in the last five years," Brauer said. "They've gotten creative in using existing parts and engines already existing and putting them into their different vehicles with cool names, cool graphics and a cool marketing campaign. Jeep is wisely starting to leverage more of that after it worked so well for Dodge."

November 17, 2020 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - For enthusiasts who crave soul-stirring, legendary off-road performance and a new level of on-road performance, Jeep® introduces the V-8-powered 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392.

The most capable, quickest, most powerful Wrangler carries the 6.4-liter V-8, rated at 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. Mated to the crisp-shifting TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission and Selec-Trac full-time active transfer case, the powertrain rockets the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 from 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds and the quarter-mile in 13.0 seconds. Plus, this potent combination comes with a factory-backed warranty.

Away from the pavement, the Trail Rated Wrangler Rubicon 392’s potent powertrain meshes with heavy-duty wide track Dana 44 axles, a 3.73 final drive ratio, transmission torque converter lockup control, a 2-inch lift and standard 33-inch tires on 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels.

The result is the most capable Jeep Wrangler ever with 10.3 inches of ground clearance; improved suspension articulation and maneuverability; approach, breakover and departure angles of 44.5, 22.6 and 37.5 degrees, respectively; and the ability to traverse up to 32.5 inches of water.

Jeep engineers put it to the test: the 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 confidently climbs up and down steep grades with minimal throttle and brake input.

“This is the most powerful, quickest, most capable Jeep Wrangler we’ve ever built,” said Jim Morrison, Head of Jeep Brand – FCA North America. “The factory lift and abundant low-end torque from the V-8 makes the Rubicon 392 the king of the hills, whether you’re rock crawling at low speeds or powering up an incline. And, when pavement replaces dirt, Rubicon 392 makes quick work of the road.”

The 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 goes on sale in the first quarter of 2021.

Peak Power, Plenty of Torque
The addition of the 6.4-liter (392 cubic inches) engine marks the first time in nearly 40 years a V-8 has been a factory option for the Wrangler. Tuned specifically for the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 and its functional hood scoop, the engine is rated at 470 hp and 470 lb.-ft. of torque.

Critical to on- and off-road performance, nearly 75 percent of the Wrangler Rubicon 392’s peak torque is available just above engine idle speed; this delivers exciting performance, whether enabling a 4.5-second 0-60 mph time or crawling up steep grades.

The performance of the 6.4-liter V-8 is based on a cast iron cylinder block and aluminum heads, accented with an active intake manifold, variable camshaft timing, twin spark plugs per cylinder, sodium-filled exhaust valves, hollow-stem intake valves and piston oil cooling jets. The Wrangler Rubicon 392 engine is fitted with a rear-sump oil pan, high-mount alternator and free-flowing exhaust manifolds.

Fuel Saver Technology with cylinder deactivation seamlessly shifts to smooth, high-fuel-economy four-cylinder mode when engine loads are light, such as cruising on the highway. A tank-mounted high-performance pump keeps the V-8 fueled under even the most demanding conditions.

A functional hood scoop feeds the Wrangler Rubicon 392’s engine with cool, denser, outside air, which leads to enhanced performance.

Jeep engineers ensured the Wrangler Rubicon 392’s V-8 gets fresh air, regardless of the terrain and weather. The Wrangler Rubicon 392’s Hydro-Guide™ air intake system includes a tri-level ducting system with a series of drains, including a one-way drain in the air box that separates water – up to 15 gallons per minute – away from the engine’s incoming air. This enables the Wrangler Rubicon 392 to traverse water up to 32.5 inches deep worry free, even if a bow wake washes over the hood.

Should the Wrangler Rubicon 392’s functional hood scoop become restricted by snow, mud or debris, a secondary air path within the hood structure feeds the engine, making it possible for the Wrangler Rubicon 392 to reach top speed even with a fully blocked primary air path.

An active dual-mode exhaust is standard to deliver an exhilarating and unmistakable sound. The system engages automatically, opening valves in the exhaust system, under higher engine loads to reduce exhaust back pressure. The driver can also activate the system with the press of a button. The dual-pipe performance exhaust system is finished off with unique quad exhaust tailpipes.

Geared for Performance
A high-torque capacity TorqueFlite 8HP75 eight-speed automatic transmission delivers quick, crisp gear changes during both normal and performance driving conditions. This transmission also enables the driver to change gears via the new steering wheel-mounted aluminum paddle shifters, a first for the Jeep Wrangler, or the Electronic Range Select shifter.

The fully electronic, eight-speed automatic transmission features on-the-fly shift-map changing. The sophisticated transmission software relies on several input parameters to determine the appropriate driving conditions and adjusts shift pattern in response. The result is automatic shifting ideally attuned to the performance requirements of almost any driving demand.

The transmission’s gear ratios afford the right response at the right time, from crawling over obstructions on the trail to smooth power delivery at highway speeds, a product of smaller ratio steps between the gears.

The Wrangler Rubicon 392’s powertrain calibration includes Torque Reserve and AMax shifting, accessible when doing a brake torque launch, that delivers maximum acceleration for solid-pavement launches. Torque Reserve, an engine strategy used by drag racers, manages fuel flow to the cylinders and controls spark advance or retard to balance engine rpm and torque to maximize power delivery and launch performance. AMax shifting, a performance-enhancing strategy used on the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, maximizes forward torque by coordinating shift time and engine torque management.

Paved Road Power That’s Ready for the Rubicon
The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392’s drivetrain puts the power down to all four wheels, all the time.

The heart of the driveline is a Selec-Trac full-time, active transfer case with a 2.72 low-range gear ratio. The transfer case has four driver-selectable modes: 4WD Auto, 4WD High, Neutral and 4WD Low. This full-time two-speed transfer case is intuitive and allows the driver to set it and forget it, while constantly sending power to the front and rear wheels. The Selec-Trac transfer case also allows for Wrangler Rubicon 392 to be flat-towed.

Off road, the Wrangler Rubicon 392 delivers the legendary capability Jeep is renowned for. This includes:
  • Off-road Plus with Sand and Rock modes: The push of a button maximizes the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392’s tractive capabilities. The modes adjust throttle, transmission shift points and traction control for peak performance on higher speed passes on sand terrain, as well as during low-speed rock crawling. The Off-road Plus drive mode also gives drivers the ability to lock the rear axle at high speeds while in “4H”

  • Selec-Speed Control manages vehicle speed in "4L" while traversing off-road terrain without requiring throttle or brake input. Selec-Speed Control is activated using a button on the dashboard and can be adjusted from 1-5 mph simply by using the Electronic Range Select shift control.

The Wrangler Rubicon 392 masters low-speed downhill descents by using the 6.4-liter V-8’s engine braking, revised transmission torque converter lockup control and a 48:1 crawl ratio to manage vehicle speed without the driver needing to use the brake pedal.

Durable Frame for the Most Powerful Wrangler Ever
The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 chassis includes upgraded frame rails, front upper control arms and cast iron steering knuckles to take full advantage of the Wrangler Rubicon 392’s power and torque. Heavy-duty brakes bring the Wrangler Rubicon 392 to a composed stop no matter the terrain.

The Wrangler Rubicon 392’s off-road prowess flows from wide track, heavy-duty Dana 44 front and rear axles with thicker axle tubes and Tru-Lok electronic locking differentials. An electronic front sway-bar disconnect maximizes suspension travel for the most demanding off-road conditions.

Augmenting the Jeep Wrangler’s proven five-link front and rear suspension, the Wrangler Rubicon 392 comes with a 2-inch factory lift and is fitted with specially-tuned high-performance FOX aluminum monotube shocks to maximize handling and comfort.

Bronze Identifies Something Special
The 2021 Jeep Rubicon 392 keeps to the original design theme of Wrangler with bold and functional cues, a wide stance and its recognizable trapezoidal wheel flares. The factory 2-inch lift adds to the vehicle’s character and presence.

The Wrangler Rubicon 392 carries bronze accents to mark the most powerful Jeep Wrangler ever. Bronze traces “Rubicon” on the hood, covers the front and rear tow hooks, and FOX Shocks’ decal outline. It also outlines the Jeep badge and the Trail Rated badge.

Adopted from the Jeep Gladiator Mojave, a 40-mm raised hood with aggressive appearance and a fully functional hood scoop provide cold air intake and greater water fording capability. It also carries a “392” badge on each side, signifying the most cubic inches ever offered in a Jeep Wrangler.

The grille design delivers greater airflow and cooling of the 392 V-8.

Bronze wheels measure 17 by 7.5 inches and are beadlock capable with an optional black locking ring available through Mopar.

The leather-appointed interior includes unique bronze stitching. The leather seats with Rubicon 392 nomenclature keep drivers comfortable with performance-inspired, integrated upper bolsters to hold occupants in place. To accommodate new engine specs, the gauge cluster receives all-new numbering and design. Available on the Jeep Wrangler for the first time, the leather-wrapped, performance steering wheel features wheel-mounted paddle shifters for fast access to the eight-speed transmission and management of 470 lb.-ft. of torque.

The Uconnect system projects on a standard 8.4-inch screen. Loaded in the software, Jeep Off-road Pages allow owners to monitor pitch, roll, altitude, GPS coordinates, drivetrain power distribution and more.

The 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 is available in nine exterior colors: Black, Bright White, Firecracker Red, Granite Crystal Metallic, Punk ’n Metallic, Sarge Green Metallic, Snazzberry Metallic, Sting-Gray Metallic and Billet Silver Metallic, all with a black interior.
