The Hemi-powered 2021 Jeep Wrangler 392 is set to go on sale early next year. While we know most of the details about the most-powerful Wrangler ever, FCA has been mum on the price tag. Well, the price tag has allegedly leaked out via a screenshot from a dealership system.
According to the post over at JLWranglerForums the Wrangler 392 will start at a whopping $77,055. This, of course, assuming that the original poster is accurate in asserting that the code “27X” does actually tie to the Wrangler 392 model. If true, this means the Hemi model will be nearly $35,000 more than the base Wrangler Unlimited; quite a premium for the V-8 engine option.
That said, a massive premium isn’t a huge surprise. FCA isn’t likely wanting to sell Hemi-powered Wranglers in massive volumes. Selling them in high-volume would only further dent their corporate average fuel economy numbers with the EPA. There’s also the small fact that FCA is slotting Hemi engine’s in just about everything these days.
Wrangler Rubicon 392 has a very familiar engine. It is powered by the same 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 that is found in most FCA SRT products these days. The iconic engine generates 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque in this application. Said power will flow through an eight-speed automatic transmission that connects to all four wheels. Jeep has also increased the ride height of Wrangler 392 models by two inches along with additional suspension changes.
The 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 is expected to go on sale this spring. It will join the Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid as another diverse powertrain option for Wrangler buyers.
