Leaked Dealer Documents Say The Jeep Wrangler 392 Has Met Its End

Internal dealer documents posted to the Jeep forum JL Wrangler suggest the Jeep Wrangler 392 has met its end. It makes sense, with Stellantis, Jeep’s parent company, having killed off the Hemi V8 in both the Dodge Challenger/Charger twins and now the Durango SRT. The documents reference a dealer sales contest in which the prize is a single allocation of a “2024MY [model year] Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 ‘Final Edition’.”

Ram also sent off its V8-powered TRX with a Final Edition recently, and it’s likely the 392 Final Edition will follow a similar template. The Ram saw a run of exclusive colors and other various trim level enhancements like unique stitching and badging, but no performance increases (how does one improve on a 700-hp V8, anyway?).

The contest itself is pretty straightforward. Dealers have to sell more Jeep models in January 2024 than in January 2023. Dealers in California, Denver, the West, and the Midwest have to sell more Wranglers. Those in the Northeast, Southeast, Southwest, and Mid-Atlantic regions have to sell more Grand Cherokees. Finally, those in the Great Lakes region must sell more Wranglers and Grand Cherokees than last January. While Jeep hasn’t confirmed the end of Wrangler Rubicon 392 production, it seems likely, leaked documents or not.
