The new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 will be reaching dealerships by the end of this spring.
The first to arrive will be a fully-loaded Launch Edition. More affordable models will come after some time.
The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Launch Edition starts at $74,995. This version is 2.0 inches taller than the standard Rubicon, available only as a 4-door model.
Acceleration from a standstill to 60 mph takes 4.5 seconds. A quarter-mile distance is covered within 13.0 seconds, according to Jeep.
A 6.4-liter 470-hp/470 lb-ft V8 engine powers the vehicle, paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The paddle shifters for gear shifting are mounted in the steering wheel. Four-wheel drive is standard.
The Wrangler Rubicon 392s come with base 17-inch inch beadlock-capable wheels with all-terrain tires. Mud-terrain rubber is available as well.
Other attributes of these vehicles are Fox shocks, an electronic front sway-bar disconnect, electronic locking differentials on Dana 44 axles, a two-speed transfer case, and a 3.73 final-drive ratio.
The Rubicon 392 in the Launch Edition trim level offers a hood scoop, body-colored hardtop and fender flares, a dual-mode exhaust system.
Leather seats, bronze stitching, a revamped infotainment system and many driver-assistance features come as standard; a trailer package, half doors, an off-road camera, a power soft top are optional.
By the way, Jeep has added half doors to the online configurator for the new Jeep Wrangler JL. The option is available to order from $2350.
