Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept SUV

Jeep hasn't offered a V8-powered Wrangler since 1981 — and that was with a rather anemic 5-liter, 125 horsepower unit. V8s have been teased in one-off concepts in recent years, but the Wrangler Rubicon 392 concept looks like something that could make it to the dealership. Powered by the same 450 horsepower, 6.4-liter Hemi V8 found in the Dodge Charger and Challenger, Jeep claims a 0-60 time of less than five seconds. The concept also comes with every option in the book — Dana 44 axles, full-time two-speed transfer case, and electric front and rear axle lockers. A reinforced frame and eight-speed transmission complete the driveline enhancements, while 37-inch all-terrain tires, a two-inch lift, and Fox monotube dampers backup the V8 power. Jeep is gauging interest in the Rubicon 392, so with any luck, a factory V8 option is in the cards.
