2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 and its V-8 engine cost Maserati money
All they knew was that the 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 was going to be skin-tingly expensive. If it’s fairly easy to load a regular Wrangler with one of its gas four- or six-cylinder engines – not to mention its expensive diesel V-6 option – past the $ 60,000 mark, the long-awaited one was V-8 no way to be expected-powered Wrangler wouldn’t have at least a seven off its price tag.
Prepare yourself …
Lo and behold, Jeep has published pricing for the new Wrangler Rubicon 392 Launch Edition, starting at $ 74,995. That’s $ 24,030 more than asking the next most expensive Wrangler, and little less than it would cost you to buy a Levante luxury SUV sold through the Maserati division of Jeep parents Stellantis. We don’t need to list all the popular compact SUVs for which the limited edition Wrangler is more expensive than (all of), but we’ll give you another comparison: The Rubicon 392 will cost you more than just a souped-up compact luxury Crossovers like the BMW X3 M and the Mercedes-AMG GLC63 with V-8 drive and two turbochargers. The Wrangler costs even more than the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT and Dodge Durango SRT SUVs, which it shares its 6.4-liter, 470-hp, 470-lb-ft V8 engine. Crazy? Not if you just need to have a Wrangler with a V-8 that is 185 horsepower more than the Wrangler’s 3.6-liter V-6 and a factory guarantee.
Don’t worry, customers can shovel more cash at numerous local Jeep dealers. These include numerous paid options, including the nifty Dual Door Group, one with lower sills for more outdoor fun. and the $ 2,000 Sky one-touch canvas roof. When you add both of these in, you can bring the price of your ultimate wrangler to over eighty grand.
Everyone ate with functions (and engine)
On the upside, this is the most expensive version of the Rubicon 392 – less expensive versions are likely to follow suit sometime after the Launch Edition is sold – and it’s pretty full of all the extras from smaller Wranglers. It has all the off-road extras of the Rubicon cladding as well as the largest 8.4-inch touchscreen with navigation standard as well as leather seats, automatic climate control, electric locks, electric windows, electric mirrors, soft-touch door panels and monitoring of the blind spot, additional cruise control , automatic emergency braking, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel and much more.
We only say “fairly fully charged” because there are a few odd omissions in the 392’s list of standard features. Why is a $ 75,000 Wrangler towbar costing an additional $ 350? We could see that this is a free option, for example, so off-roaders not interested in towing a towbar on obstacles could avoid it – but $ 350? The same goes for the $ 525 hard top headliner pads. Perhaps Jeep would like customers to have a choice of hearing more of the sound of the Hemi V-8 engine reflected inside the Wrangler’s plastic hardtop – but why not get a free deal too? At least buyers who want a convertible top (the hardtop is standard) can have one for $ 0, and the dual-top groupset (both hard and soft roofs are included) costs less here than other Wranglers, just 1,300 U.S. dollar.
Is it worth it? It depends on how muscular your jeep wavy hand is. If you absolutely must have the Wrangler with a V-8 and you don’t feel like paying similar all-in-one money (or more) for the same result of an aftermarket remodel, then Jeep has you on Rock Rails and knows it . Save, because the Wrangler Rubicon 392 Launch Edition falls this spring.
