Off-roader playground, Moab features several tracks set in the famous red slick rock and outdoor orange sand dunes. Jeep Enthusiasts travel to Moab year-round for trekking fun – especially during the Easter jeep Safari (Otherwise known as EJS). The Jeep invited us to test its new high-energy beast on the trails to experience its potential on rocky terrain, hard-filled dirt, loose sand and slick rock, and a bit of open road.
The Wrangler Rubicon 392 marks the return of factory V8 power to the traditional Jeep-style vehicle. Available only on the Rubicon model with four doors and with the new 392 470 horsepower and 470-pound torque with eight-speed automatic. It apparently has a lot of dizziness, which makes it like an un-wrangler at speeds of 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds. It is 40% faster than the W6 running Wrangler. From a dead stop to full bore speed, its dual exhaust with quad tailpipes grows deeper braaaps Loudly under full stimulus. The ability to pass while on the road is not surprising, as it flew through the dunes throwing rooster tails.

Also look in your pocket book: 392 offers an EPA-rated 13 mpg city, 17 mpg highway and 14 mpg.
Mandatory eight-speed automatic transitions smoothly, effortlessly and very quickly, with well-spaced intermediate gears, well combined with the low-end capability of the V8. It’s nice to come with responsive paddle converters for the most impressive and fun drive (since a Wrangler), but it’s better if they are mounted on the steering column, so it’s easy to switch or tight turns off-camper. In addition, the unrelated push-buttons adorn the bottom-most shifter point, which can be accidentally pressed in technical off-pavement situations.
It has a different four-wheel-drive system than the 392 Other Wranglers, Select-Track full-time system with active transmission case and 2.72 low distance gear ratio. The driver-selectable 4WD runs on 2WD high, neutral and 4WD on demand, while the Selek-Track runs on 4WD auto mode, which continuously transmits power to the front and rear wheels. Otherwise, especially off-roading, the system will perform as you expect. 392 with a revised transmission torque converter control and the same 48:1 Crawl ratio to other auto-fitted Rubicon.

This chassis features beefy components including upgraded frame rails, front and top control arms and cast iron steering knuckles. Improved front brakes are borrowed Gladiator Mojave. The backs are similar to the new Wrangler 4xe. This heavy hit combo stops this high horsepower beast quickly in various terrains, providing precise control for quick braking.
The white-track, heavy-duty Dana 44 front and rear axles have thicker axle tubes with True-Lock electronic locking variations. As with conventional Rubicon, an electronic front sway-bar disconnect enhances suspension travel, making it ideal for boulder crawling in Moab.

In addition, the hood scoop of 392 (which was taken Jeep Gladiator Mojave) Not just for looks, it works perfectly. If it is blocked by dirt, debris or snow, a second air intake inside the hood feeds the power plant, allowing this path to reach even higher speeds with the Titan blocked airway (although it may take longer to get there).

This is undoubtedly the most expensive Wrangler the company has ever sold. The manufacturer’s recommended retail price is 74,995 (including the 49,495 target), a premium price tag that matches its features and capabilities. However, with the sheer popularity of the brand, they should have no problem selling each and every one of them. The V8 of the past showed the 304-cubic-inch powerplant, which produced 125 horsepower and 220-pound-feet of torque. This is obviously an improvement. If the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 was obtained from the people here as it was in Moab, the Jeep would have another winner in its hands.
