Jeep® Introduces 450-HP V-8 Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept

The last time the “real” Jeep was offered with a V-8 engine was in the Malaise Era. Back in 1981, the 304 cu in (5.0 l) V8 in the Jeep® CJ delivered 125 hp and 220 lb ft of torque. Jeep enthusiasts have been clamoring for a V8-powered Wrangler for years and the new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept is an indication they may soon get their wish.

The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept is powered by a 6.4 l (392 cu in) V-8 engine that delivers 450 hp and 450 lb ft of torque. Dana 44 axles, a full-time 2-speed transfer case, electric front and rear axle lockers, 37’’ mud-terrain tires and a Jeep Performance Parts lift kit from Mopar combine with suspension enhancements, a more robust 8-speed transmission and the massive V8 engine to deliver the ultimate fun-to-drive Jeep vehicle with more off-road capability than ever in a Jeep Wrangler.

To accommodate the V8 engine and transmission, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept features upgraded engine mounts and a modified frame. Suspension upgrades include new aluminum, monotube Fox shocks for improved damping and heat dissipation.

Built on nearly 80 years of legendary heritage, the Jeep brand offers a full line of vehicles that continue to provide owners with a sense of security to handle any journey with confidence.
