Jeep engineers like to have fun. So, the brand’s decision to stuff a big 6.4-liter V-8 engine under the hood of a Wrangler and unveiling it as the Rubicon 392 concept didn’t strike us as much of a surprise. After all, this is the same brand that regularly rolls out wild concept trucks and SUVs it has no plans of mass-producing as part of the Easter Jeep Safari. The Rubicon 392 seemed to us like just another such concept vehicle—an awesome idea that was unlikely to reach production or one left to the aftermarket (which has been providing V-8-powered Wranglers for years).
Boy, were we wrong. Jeep formally announced its plans to unveil the salable 2021 Jeep Wrangler 392 on November 17, 2020, at 12:00 p.m. Eastern time. It’s really happening. So, what can we expect from this latest addition to the Wrangler family? Read our First Look story and find out, and check out the official reveal of the 2021 Jeep Wrangler 392 below.
