Jeep Wrangler’s V8 Era Ending With Limited Final Edition Model

2024 Wrangler Rubicon 392 Final Edition Alerted to Car Dealers

It appears that the V8-powered Wrangler’s time has come to an end. Despite only being available since the beginning of 2021, Jeep seems to be discontinuing the model. According to a member of the JL Wrangler Forums, dealers have been informed of an upcoming Final Edition of the Rubicon 392, which features the powerful 6.4-liter HEMI engine.

In correspondence from Jeep, it has been revealed that there is a sales contest scheduled for January 2024. If dealers are able to surpass their car sales from the same month in 2023, each one will be rewarded with a coveted allocation for a 2024 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Final Edition (let’s all take a moment to catch our breath).

The exact number of units that will be produced is unknown, however it is evident that these models will not come at a low cost. The base 2024 version of the Wrangler Rubicon 392 already has an astounding manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) of $92,140, which is $5,100 more than the previous year. Including the mandatory destination charge of $1,795 and any additional features, the total cost rises to a whopping $102,520. And that’s not even accounting for possible markups. Dealers may take advantage of this potential Final Edition and charge excessively high prices.

The final celebration is anticipated to utilize the four-door Unlimited variant, along with numerous aesthetic enhancements both inside and out. The unforced V8 engine is expected to maintain its output of 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet (640 Newton-meters) of torque, powering all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission featuring paddle shifters.

The Final Edition may not be a top choice for those seeking fuel efficiency since the 392 is notorious for being one of the biggest gas guzzlers on the market in the United States. It only manages to achieve an underwhelming 14 miles per gallon in both city and highway driving. Despite this downside, you can still count on this vehicle to take you anywhere with ease as it boasts impressive acceleration, reaching 60 mph in a mere four and a half seconds and completing a quarter mile in just 13 seconds. Not many cars weighing a massive 5,268 pounds (2,389 kilograms) can match that level of performance.

We have contacted Jeep to inquire about the release of the 2024 Wrangler Rubicon 392 Final Edition and will provide an update in this article as soon as we receive a response.
