Someone claiming to be a salesman is claiming that a Jeep Wrangler refresh is coming soon. The basic design is the same, but the 2024 Wrangler is rumored to offer power seats, ventilated seats, new gauge cluster and UConnect with a larger 10-inch touch-screen. (2024 Jeeps are not shown below.) The 392 is to continue, with improvements.
As one may expect with all this, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will also join the list. Surprisingly, a new digital instrument cluster is expected—hopefully well waterproofed.
This story is unconfirmed; a Jeep rep said merely that they do not comment on future product.
Update: This rumor may not be as accurate as hoped, as more news was expected by now. The updates are not unlikely. The 392 Wrangler is unlikely to make it past the 2024 model year, regardless; while it could be replaced by the Hurricane Six, it’s equally likely that the Wrangler would continue with the 4xe as its quickest option.

Better question on any refresh is have they fixed the steering issues that both the JL & JT have been exhibiting since launch? From all reports, the switch from an aluminum to a steel steering box didn’t solve it. I’d also like to see them go back to the better quality Dana axles rather than the “cost engineered” ones on the current JLs.
I agree but doubt they will make that obvious.
Highly doubt the 392 will continue on in the Jeep, I do expect a high output variant of the 3.0L Hurricane to make a debut in this vehicle as well as potentially a hybrid variant of the 3.0L Hurricane. I’d venture to say the 4xE will probably the standard version of the Wrangler and the Gladiator from here on out while the Hurricane-6 variants will be the optional & special edition powertrains. Honestly I think anything on this and the STLA large platform will have the 2.0L 4XE hybrid as the base powertrain if it’s not an EV. Honestly the more I look at it, we may even see the 2.0L Hurricane-4 being the base engine for the STLA cars. With 268hp and 295lb-ft of torque, it puts out more torque than the 3.6L Pentastar and it isn’t too far off the 292hp of the 3.6L Pentastar so in vehicles that are supposed to be a bit lighter than the current Charger and Challenger the 2.0L might even perform a little bit better. If not, the 1.3L Hybrid setup with 288hp and 383tq will definitely out perform the 3.6L Pentastar V6 in the STLA Large platform and the Wrangler/Gladiator. As usual, it all comes down to a bit of pipe dreaming and wishful thinking but the point is that Stellantis has finally come up with ways to produce smaller displacement “EPA friendly” engines that can offer similar performance to the V8 engines we are accustomed to. I doubt we will ever see another “392” Jeep in the future, or any Hemi vehicle for that matter. However, with what the brand is doing, that kind of performance will live on.
