2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Hemi V8

Today was a good day.

Jeep unveiled their upcoming 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 with the 6.4L Hemi V8.

If you haven't seen it, watch it now.

Earlier in the year, Jeep teased us with a 392 hood shot and most of us thought it would be another concept that wouldn't make it to production.

We've never been so happy about being wrong.

Although the pricing hasn't been announced yet, here's what we know.

Wrangler Rubicon 392 Performance

The Wrangler Rubicon 392 will be powered by a 6.4L V8 developing 470 horsepower & 470 lb-ft of torque. And apparently, 75% of that torque (350) is available just over idle.

All that power results in a lightning quick 0-60 time of 4.5 seconds and it'll cover the 1/4 mile in a staggering 13 seconds.

You'll be able to shift the 8-speed automatic with the wheel-mounted paddle shifters shown below.

How about the sound?

The 392 comes equipped with electronically controlled exhaust valves so you can unleash the full V8 roar at the touch of a button.

So hit that loud pedal and your ears will be rewarded.

392 Aesthetics

The Rubicon 392 drops the red accents in favor of Desert Bronze on the tow hooks, Trail Rated badges, Rubicon decals on the hood and interior stitching.

Borrowing from the Gladiator, the 392 gets the 7 larger front grilles, an optional front-facing trail camera and a similar hood scoop to the Mojave to feed the power plant with fresh air.

Plus, it comes equipped with their new Hydro-Guide Induction System which helps to separate water from the intake system when you need to cross some deep water.

And for the first time, we'll be able to order the Rubicon 392 along with all other Wranglers with half doors right from the factory.

Very nice!

Wrangler 392 Off-Road Capability

So we've established that the performance is definitely there.

But the Wrangler is all about off-roading.

Is this just a pavement monster?

No. Not even close.

The 392 has the Trail Rated credentials to make this a truly capable off-roader.

  • 32.5 inches of water fording (up from 30" on the Rubicon)
  • 2" lift
  • 33" K02 Tires as standard with the ability to upgrade to 35s
  • Dana 44 Axles
  • 3.73 Final Drive Ratio
  • 17" Beadlock Capable Wheels
  • Fox Aluminum-Bodied 2 Inch Shocks

So yeah...we like it.

We definitely want one and we can't wait to start seeing and hearing them out on the roads and trails.

In any event, Bulletproof Mounting Solutions will be ready and waiting to equip the Wrangler Rubicon 392 with our Rock Solid Jeep Phone Mounts.

I will definitely be buying the Jeep Wrangler 392 and I’ll without a doubt buy a bulletproof mount system for my phone. Don’t know what I’d do without the one in my JKU.
