Wrangler 392 Final Edition, US and Canada

With 392 engine production reportedly already stopped after building up a year’s worth of inventory, Jeep has launched the Final Edition of its Hemi-powered Wrangler.

Enthusiasts had shoved Hemi engines into Jeep Wranglers for years when the official model came; the factory faced challenges greater than the aftermarket, because they needed the vehicles to pass safety tests, last for a projected 200,000 miles, and avoid problems like overheating in extreme conditions.

The 392 Final Edition will come not just with the 6.4 liter Hemi, coupled to an eight-speed automatic, but also an 8,000 pound capacity Warn winch, suspension lift for 11.6 inches of ground clearance and 34.5 inches of water crossing, rock sliders, a comprehensive tool kit, and a triple-hoop grille guard. (The press release refers to both a ½ inch and a 2 inch lift).

On the cosmetic side, the Wrangler will have hood and fender-vent decals, Nappa leather seats in black with gold or Tupelo accents, and a monogrammed shifter medallion.

The engine itself delivers 470 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque, making these fastest of factory Wranglers run 0-60 in 4.5 seconds with a 13.0 second quarter mile—beating most if not all of the original muscle cars. It has a two-speed transfer case with full time four wheel drive, wide-track Dana 44 axles, electronic locking differentials, and front sway-bar disconnect. Stopping power is increased with heavy duty brakes; the frame rails and suspension were both upgraded to deal with the torque. The Xtreme 35 tire package is standard on all 2024 Rubicon 392s.

Only 3,700 Jeep Wrangler 392 Final Editions are being made around the world. It is $99,995 plus $1,895 destination in the United States, or $129,510 including destination and fees in Canada. The factory has not released the number of vehicles specifically earmarked for each country.
