That, though, was short-lived. Sales of the V8-powered Wrangler began in the first quarter of 2021, and it appears that Jeep is ready to discontinue the model. Dealers have reportedly been informed about an impending Final Edition of the Rubicon 392 with its formidable 6.4-liter HEMI engine, according to a member of the JL Wrangler Forums.
The paper that Jeep supplied states that a sales challenge is scheduled for January 2024. Retailers who move more vehicles in January 2023 than they did in January 2024 will each be given one allocation toward a 2024 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Final Edition.
2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392: First Drive Review
The final effort is anticipated to be based on the four-door Unlimited model with numerous exterior and interior design changes. With an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, the naturally aspirated V8 should maintain its 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet (640 Newton-meters) of torque, which are distributed to all four wheels.
Since the 392 is of the most gas-guzzling cars available in the US, people won’t be purchasing the Final Edition despite its economy. When driving both cities and highways combined, it only gets 14 miles per gallon. However, you do get a car that can go anywhere, reaching 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and covering a quarter mile in 13.5 seconds. Few gas-powered vehicles that weigh a colossal 5,268 pounds (2,389 kilograms) can do that.
We’ve reached out to Jeep to ask about the 2024 Wrangler Rubicon 392 Final Edition and we’ll update the article once we hear back.
