Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept Hints at V8-Powered Production Version

The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept reveals a new 6.4-liter V8 that is a significant upgrade over the existing V6.

The eight-cylinder mill delivers 450 hp (336 kW) and 450 lb-ft (610 Nm) of torque, which is a real boost compared with the six-cylinder 3.6-liter 285-hp unit (213 kW, 260 lb-ft) the current model uses.

Although previously Jeep denied opportunity of the V8 for the Wrangler, now the manufacturer clearly hints at the arrival of a production version with such a potent engine.

However, there is no official confirmation yet.

The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept got a revised frame and improved engine mounts. It features high-strength Dana 44 axles and locking differentials at both ends, a two-inch suspension lift, monotube Fox shocks, 17-inch beadlock wheels with 37-inch mud-terrain tires.

The Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept uses an eight-speed automatic transmission and two-speed transfer case. It needs less than 5 seconds to speed up to 60 mph (97 km/h).

Jeep shows its new Wrangler Rubicon 392 on the same day when the Ford Bronco debuts. This is not just a hint, but a confident challenge to a competitor.
