Product Overview

Wrangler Rubicon 392 is Jeep's 470-horsepower answer to the Ford Bronco announced in the summer of 2020. Combining a 6.4L (392 cu-in) pushrod HEMI V8 with the beloved Wrangler chassis, Jeep has created a new offroad icon for enthusiasts to lust over.
The calling card of the Rubicon 392, the V8 engine also produces 470 lb-ft of torque, propelling the offroader to 60mph in just 4.5 seconds, significantly higher than all of its competition. Only the Mercedes G63 AMG, which vastly out-classes the Wrangler, inches out 0.1 second quicker.
The added power is complemented with enhancements in the chassis and suspension that improves the truck's offroad capabilities.

Sentiment Score 78%
Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The 392 is the same naturally aspirated Hemi unit found in the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack, making 470bhp and 470lb ft. It sounds gravelly and archaic, rather than woofly and smooth like the twin-turbocharged V8s we get here in Europe. The engine is mated to an automatic eight-speed gearbox. Top speed is limited to 99mph to protect the all-terrain tyres.

Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
The 392 is the most expensive of all Wranglers, starting at the whopping price of $74,995. The 392 has a trick intake system that can flush out 15 gallons of water per minute. It's safe to ford 32.5 inches of water, even if the water initially comes up over the hood.
