2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Packs a V-8 Off-Road Punch
Jeep has dug deep into the corporate parts bin to create the V-8-powered 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392. The quickest, most powerful, most capable Wrangler yet, the '392' packs the potent 6.4-liter V-8 engine under its functional hood scoop, delivering 470 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. This is the first time in nearly 40 years a V-8 has been a factory option for the Wrangler. On the road, the Wrangler 392 conquers the quarter-mile in 13.0 seconds, after a 0-60 mph sprint in just 4.5 seconds. More critical to buyers of this Jeep, the engine delivers nearly 75 percent of peak torque just above engine idle speed; perfect for crawling up steep grades. 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. Upgraded frame rails, factory 2-inch lift, unique suspension geometry, heavy-duty brakes and FOX high-performance shocks further improve off-road performance, handling and durability. Official pricing and fuel economy figures will be released closer to launch, expected to be in the spring of 2021.
