    Jeep Wrangler with 392 6.4L Hemi Teased.....

    Jeep Wrangler with 392 6.4L V8 teased ahead of Ford Bronco Reveal
    https://www.motorauthority.com/news/...-bronco-reveal
    July 11, 2020
    By: Joel Feder



    Jeep may crash the 2021 Ford Bronco's party early. On Saturday, the off-road brand teased a Jeep Wrangler with a 392 cubic-inch V-8 on Facebook.

    The single shadowy teaser image shows a 392 badge on the hood of a Wrangler. A raised hood scoop appears to be a functional and feed cold air to cool the big V-8. The fender flares are painted body color as is the roof, but the side view mirrors are black.

    Expect more information to come on Monday regarding the Jeep Wrangler 392 to try and steal the Bronco's spotlight.


    ---

    I have been waiting for Jeep to throw the Hemi in the Wrangler, and now the Gladiator, however I expected it to be the 5.7L, not the 6.4L. Its kind of the one thing that has been missing since the range has grown in size. I have a feeling they know they need more power, especially for the Gladiator, but until the new I6 Turbo is ready looks like its the Hemi......and perfect timing to defend its turf.

    I wonder how many Jeep could afford to sell before CAFE became a big problem
    and there's is a very good reason why big engines in small vehicles are not seen today.

    I also think that this is the very reaction that Ford was expecting in front of Bronco launch,
    pretty much a given the moment Farley said that Bronco would be a better than Wrangler.

    A Hummer EV teaser showing some offroad ability would be nice right about now...

    OR will it be so high priced that FEW sell
    that WOULD explain NOT being the 5.7L as there is LITTLE chance the 392 will be priced like a "ECODIESEL" in a sport S trim and only will be available as a "SRT" OR limited edition

    Most definitely, Jeep will either announce this as a limited run or price it high enough to keep it exclusive.
    I'm hoping that Bronco's V6 will actually be the 3.0 nano from Explorer with 400 HP, not the 325 HP 2.7 V6.
    Now that would make things very interesting, especially if Ford also had a power up kit like the 2.3 EB.

    I've been reading thousands usual complaints on European U.S.-car forum boards about lack of V8 in Bronco, then BANG! Jeep puts V8 in their competitive products. Perfect timing

    I really believe that this was one of the several concepts that were going to be shown at the Moab Easter Jeep Safari. Road and Track was claiming earlier this morning that this is now a go for production.

    If I remember correctly Jeep always said that there wouldn't be a JK with a V8 from the factory because it wouldn't meet crash standards as is.

    Either way, very cool and I'm excited to see the Bronco reveal tonight.

    I too am looking forward to the Bronco unveil. IMO styling will dictate if this is a hit or...another Toyota FJ. TBH, I really don't see this making much a dent in Jeeps volume, it'll have a greater effect on the Explorer's sales #s

    There is no way that Jeep is not worried about a huge impact to sales.

    Next Gen Eco-Diesel is rolling out now, which should help offset it. Plus the biggest knock on the Wrangler/Gladiator (outside of price) is the lack of Horsepower. As I said in the new Bronco thread, I expect this is just a special edition precursor to the 5.7L being added to the lineup, at least until the new I6TT is rolled out. I would actually love a Gladiator Mojave w/ a Hemi.

    Didn't even think about that, that's a great question. It definitely could add to the Bronco "Brand".

    I believe Manley said that, but nobody really believed him.

    They 'effin nailed it. Jeep won't be able to coast by anymore. Which is good for the consumer & the segment.
