The Jeep Wrangler hardly needs an introduction. A rugged all-terrain vehicle with spartan interiors, uncompromising aesthetics and one of the most loyal customer base the auto industry can show. What is different this time are the options. And the last name. Rubicon 392. Which stands for 392 cu.in. Or 6.4 liters. Or V8 engine. And that’s a configuration not seen in this model since the ’80s.
Boasting 470HP and 637Nm of torque, the traditionally sluggish Jeep can now fly to 100KPH in 4.5 seconds. And you can forget about the old-style transmission in exchange for an 8-speed sequential gearbox with paddles, and elevated suspension (5cm) with FOX shock absorbers. A complete overhaul of a model that breathes adventure.
The new version also increases ground clearance to 25cm and redirected air intakes allow wading on 825mm of water. Approach/breakover/departure angles are 44.5/22.6/37.5 degrees to aid in any off-road situation and keep you moving. Available for sale in Q1 2021, prices, full specs and option packages are yet to be confirmed.
