Another One Rides in Dust: Jeep Wrangler 392 Final Edition Announced

It was too wild to ever live for too long.

The folks at Stellantis must practically live in black suits and dresses these days, because Jeep on Tuesday announced another model is moving on. After a dealer leak earlier this year, it's now official: the 2024 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Final Edition will wrap up the four-year run of the V8-powered off-roader.

Limited to just 3,700 units globally, the Final Edition piles on a whole bunch of additional kit. There are the requisite Final Edition decals of course, along the hood and fender vents. The Xtreme 35 Package is standard, featuring bronze 35-inch BFGoodrich all-terrain tires wrapping 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels. On top of that, Jeep fits a factory-installed 8,000-pound Warn winch, Mopar grille guard and rock sliders, and an additional 0.5-inch suspension lift. We're talking 11.6 inches (295 millimeters) of ground clearance and 34.5 in (876 mm) of water fording ability. While it isn't mentioned, we assume the Final Edition improves on the "regular" 392's approach and departure angles of 46.7 and 39.8 degrees, respectively.

Inside, the Final Edition boasts 12-way adjustable black Nappa leather seats, with unique Mayan gold stitching and Tupelo leather highlights. There are special Final Edition medallions on the shifter and swing gate, the latter of which picks up a Mopar fold-out table. An 83-piece toolkit is also standard; just about the only option is an on-board air compressor.

The Wrangler 392 debuted for the 2021 model year, cramming the 6.4-liter Hemi V8 behind the classic seven-slot grille. It posts muscle car-like acceleration times (4.5 seconds to 60 mph and 13.0 seconds for the quarter mile), yet also boasts a 48:1 crawl ratio. An active dual exhaust lets the Hemi truly holler. Based on personal experience, that exhaust is about the only thing capable of drowning out the constant laughs from the driver's seat that the 392 is capable of.

With the Wrangler 392 launching off towards the great dune in the sky, the V8-powered Stellantis lineup contracts once more. Just the two top Jeep Grand Cherokee L trims offer the 5.7-liter Hemi, as does the Durango R/T. The 6.4-liter V8 soldiers on in the Durango 392 and Ram Heavy Duty trucks, while the supercharged 6.2-liter is on its own farewell tour in the Ram TRX and Durango Hellcat.

Want one of the last V8 Wranglers ever? The price starts at $101,890 ($129,510 CAD), including destination, but not the very likely dealer adjustments that will come with the Final Edition. America will see 3,300 units, Canadians will vie for 300, and the rest of the world sees just 100.
