This Is It: The 2024 Jeep Wrangler 392 Final Edition Sends the V8 Into the History Books

We knew is was coming, and this sendoff is not going quietly (or cheaply) into the good night

It’s been a hell of a ride, but the Jeep Wrangler’s V8 run was never going to last forever.

There’s no way around this simple and indisputable fact: The 6.4-liter Hemi V8 Wrangler is a freaking beast. It’s loud, it’s brash and its existence is a bit ridiculous, but that’s why it’s awesome. That’s been a recurring theme over the past few years as FCA crammed its iconic 392 and supercharged Hellcat engines into pretty much everything you can imagine (though not the Pacifica minivan, sadly). But the show can’t go on forever, and it’s time for the thundering V8 to bow out with this: the 2024 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Final Edition.

As you’d expect, this limited-run version of Jeep’s most berserk Wrangler isn’t going out with a whimper. It’s only taking things up a notch, in fact, by way of extra off-road gear, a half-inch suspension lift and heavy-duty rock sliders, along with some unique touches that only the 3,700 buyers will get. It’s also worth noting that figure is 3,700 units globally, so this will definitely be a rare sight on the roads and the trails.

On top of the 2024 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392’s standard gear including a new seven-slotted grille, 12.3-inch touchscreen and Xtreme 35 tire package with beadlock-capable wheels, the Final Edition continues to ratchet things up beyond just having that V8 under the hood. You get a standard 8,000-pound Warn winch, a Mopar triple loop grille guard and those heavy-duty rock sliders, for a start. Jeep also provides another half-inch suspension lift, bringing the total ground clearance up to 11.6 inches and the Final Edition’s water fording clearance up to 34.5 inches.

Inside, the 2024 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Final Edition gets black Nappa leather seats with gold stitching, a bespoke shifter medallion and a plaque commemorating its place among the limited production run. Finally, this final V8 model adds in a fold-out table and 83-piece toolkit. A Mopar onboard air compressor is optional.

As far as the powertrain’s concerned, the Final Edition doesn’t bring higher output or other special tweaks to the party. That 6.4-liter Big Hemi still manages 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque in this configuration, making its way to all four wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission. It’s undoubtedly the quickest Wrangler of the bunch, though you’ll have to stomach an abysmal 14 mpg on top of the stratospheric asking price.

Of the total 3,700-unit production run, 3,300 are coming to the U.S. 300 examples will be available to our friends up north in Canada, while the rest of the world will have to duke it out for the remaining 100 units.

Jeep is throwing nearly everything at this Wrangler, though you’ll have to pay all the money for it. when it goes on sale in the second half of 2024, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Final Edition will cost you at least $101,890 including destination. Yep, you’ll have to pay six figures for a Wrangler…and that’s assuming you can get one at MSRP. Orders are open at Jeep dealers now…so good luck.
