The first of the V8-powered Jeep Wrangler models to arrive on the scene in decades will appear this year, and you will have to pay to own one.
This impressive new model called the Wrangler Rubicon 392 Launch Edition will cost you at least $75,000 to own. That’s more than some trucks and certainly more than most vehicles in the mainstream market, but if you want this impressive Jeep, you will have to pay to own it.
Upgrades to Justify the Cost
What has Jeep done to this Wrangler to make it worth the price? Let’s take a look. First of all, you’ll have the 6.4-liter Hemi V8 engine that produces 470 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. This is the most power in any Jeep Wrangler in decades. This alone might make the V8-powered Jeep Wrangler worth the price to you.
Other items that have been improved for this Rubicon 392 Launch Edition include better frame rails, upgraded front control arms, cast iron steering knuckles, and two-inch lift, Dana 44 axles, and Fox aluminum monotube shocks at all four corners. You’ll also enjoy the benefits of a trick electronically-decoupling for the front sway bar which is also part of the standard package. That’s a lot of off-road goodness packed in one package for you.
Will this Price be the Only Way to Have a V8-Powered Jeep Wrangler
This new model is called a Launch Edition for a reason. It’s only the start of what Jeep wants to do with this engine in the Wrangler. Future models of this Jeep may come with fewer items or be somewhere lower on the trim ladder to offer you a lower price with fewer items included. It’s easy to see that the Rubicon 392 Launch Edition is checking off all the boxes to give you a complete off-roader to drive.
The Boxes Left Unchecked
While you might think this V8-powered Jeep Wrangler has everything it could include to give you the drive and performance you desire, there are a couple of items that can be added. You can choose to add a tow hitch, which will cost you an additional amount, or add the dual-top option to the mix and spend a little more. If you’re already spending $75,000 for this SUV, adding a little more to have these items won’t be a big surprise or a huge change in the overall cost.
