Ford Bronco Raptor Rival Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Canceled

When the sixth-generation Ford Bronco was revealed years ago, Stellantis tried to ruin the party by revealing the new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392, a V8-powered version of the off-road-focused SUV that fans had been clamoring for. The Blue Oval countered that effort a bit later on with the Ford Bronco Raptor, which wound up beating the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 in a handful of comparison tests. The V8 seemed destined to live on with the Wrangler’s broader 2024 refresh, but the writing has been on the proverbial wall for some time now. In fact, Stellantis has been busy killing off its V8 engines in multiple models – including the Charger and even the Ram TRX – and now, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 is going the way of the dinosaur, too.

While Ford Bronco Raptor production is set to continue for the foreseeable future, Stellantis has announced that the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 is entering its final year of production, which it will celebrate with a special Final Edition model. It features the same 6.4L V8 as the regular model, which generates 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque, along with all of the updates present in the 2024 refresh, plus some unique touches.

Those unique touches include Final Edition hood and front fender vent decals, a Warn winch, a Mopar triple loop grille guard, Mopar heavy-duty rock sliders, and a half-inch suspension lift on the outside. Inside the cabin, one will find Black Nappa leather, 12-way power performance seats, new Mayan gold stitching and Tupelo highlights, a special shifter medallion and swing gate plaque, along with a standard Mopar fold-out swing gate table and an 83-piece toolkit. Production of the 2024 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Final Edition will be limited to 3,700 units, with 3,300 destined for the U.S., 300 for Canada, and 100 for rest of the world, all with an MSRP of $99,995 excluding destination charges.

“Jeep Wrangler 392 remains atop the mountain in terms of all-out performance, power and unmatched capability. These are game-changing strengths that our most impassioned Jeep enthusiasts asked us for, and that the competition was unable to match,” said Bill Peffer, senior vice president and head of Jeep brand – North America. “To celebrate the existence of this powerhouse, we’re sending the raucous, 392-powered Wrangler off in style with this special Final Edition, limited to just 3,700 units globally.”

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    I would not pay $100,000 for Stalantis Group much less a Jeep, a cheap Jeep at that!

    Ford reporting on Jeep as Bronco news. Ford needs to worry about Ford and all of the issues they are still having with the bronco. How many years since the “roll out”? What a joke.
