For enthusiasts who crave soul-stirring, legendary off-road performance and a new level of on-road performance, Jeep® introduced today the V-8-powered 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 for customers
The most-capable, quickest, most-powerful Wrangler carries the 6.4-liter V-8, rated at 470 horsepower and 637 Nm of torque. Mated to the crisp-shifting TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission and Selec-Trac full-time active transfer case, the powertrain rockets the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 from
0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 4.5 seconds and the quarter-mile in 13.0 seconds.

Away from the pavement, the Trail Rated® Wrangler Rubicon 392’s potent powertrain meshes with heavy-duty wide track Dana 44 axles, a 3.73 final drive ratio, transmission torque converter lockup control, a 2-inch (5 cm) lift and standard 33-inch tires on 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels.
The result is the most capable Jeep Wrangler ever with 10.3 inches of ground clearance, improved suspension articulation and maneuverability, approach/breakover/departure angles of 44.5/22.6/37.5 degrees and the ability to traverse up to 32.5 inches (82.5 cm) of water.
Jeep engineers put it to the test: The 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 confidently climbs up and down steep grades with minimal throttle and brake input.
Critical to performance on-road and off, nearly 75 percent of the Wrangler Rubicon 392’s peak torque is available just above engine idle speed. This delivers exciting performance, whether enabling a 4.5-second 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) time or crawling up steep grades.
The performance of the 6.4-liter V-8 is based on a cast-iron cylinder block and aluminum heads, accented with an active intake manifold, variable camshaft timing, twin spark plugs per cylinder, sodium-filled exhaust valves, hollow-stem intake valves, and piston oil cooling jets. The Wrangler Rubicon 392 engine is fitted with a rear-sump oil pan, high-mount alternator, and free-flowing exhaust manifolds.
Fuel Saver Technology with cylinder deactivation seamlessly shifts to smooth, high-fuel-economy four-cylinder mode when engine loads are light, such as cruising on the highway. A tank-mounted high-performance pump keeps the V-8 fueled under even the most demanding conditions.
A functional hood scoop feeds the Wrangler Rubicon 392’s engine with cool, denser, outside air, which leads to enhanced performance. Should the Wrangler Rubicon 392’s functional hood scoop become restricted by snow/mud/debris, a secondary air path within the hood structure feeds the engine, making it possible for the Wrangler Rubicon 392 to reach top speed even with a fully blocked primary air path.
An active dual-mode exhaust is standard to deliver an exhilarating and unmistakable sound. The system engages automatically, opening valves in the exhaust system, under higher engine loads to reduce exhaust back pressure. The driver can also activate the system with the press of a button.
The dual-pipe performance exhaust system is finished off with unique quad exhaust tailpipes.
Regarding the exterior, the 2021 Jeep Rubicon 392 keeps to the original design theme of Wrangler with bold and functional cues, a wide stance and its recognizable trapezoidal wheel flares. The factory 2-inch (5 cm) lift adds to the vehicle’s character and presence. The Wrangler Rubicon 392 carries Bronze accents to mark the most powerful Jeep Wrangler ever. Bronze traces “Rubicon” on the hood, covers the front and rear tow hooks, and FOX Shocks’ decal outline. It also outlines the Jeep badge and the Trail Rated badge.
The leather-appointed interior includes unique Bronze stitching. The leather seats with Rubicon 392 nomenclature keep drivers comfortable with performance-inspired, integrated upper bolsters to hold occupants in place. To accommodate new engine specs, the gauge cluster receives all-new numbering and design. Available on the Jeep Wrangler for the first time, the leather-wrapped, performance steering wheel features wheel-mounted paddle shifters for fast access to the eight-speed transmission and management of torque.
The Uconnect system projects on a standard 8.4-inch screen. Loaded in the software, Jeep’s Off-road Pages allow owners to monitor pitch, roll, altitude, GPS coordinates, drivetrain power distribution and more.
