We did it, Joe! The Jeep Wrangler 392 Final Edition will live on through the 2025 model year because of people like you. That’s right, because of popular demand, Jeep’s $100,000, 6.4-liter Hemi V8-powered Wrangler 392 Final Edition is giving an encore performance for 2025.

Back in March, it was announced that the 470-horsepower V8 Wrangler would be riding off into the great car graveyard in the sky at the end of 2024, but folks just weren’t ready to say goodbye to the ridiculous truck just yet. I know I wasn’t. Because of popular demand, the Wranger 392 Final Edition will soldier on through at least 2025.

“When news broke in March that Jeep Wrangler 392 was roaring off into the sunset, the comments, coverage and conversation showed us that the Jeep community isn’t quite ready to say goodbye to the V-8-powered Wrangler,” Bill Peffer, senior vice president and head of Jeep brand North America, said in a statement. “Jeep brand listened and will continue the 392 Final Edition into the 2025 model year.”


As it turns out, production of the Wrangler 392 Final Edition never actually ended. A spokesperson for Jeep told Jalopnik that production for 2024 trucks will continue through the end of the year. Then, the 2025 Wrangler 392 Final Edition production will start in the first quarter of 2025. So, it’s not as much an encore performance as it is an extended setlist. I’ll take it either way.

As for what comes next, well, Jeep is staying mum on the idea of a 2026 Wrangler 392. I suppose it makes sense. After all, the current Wrangler is probably getting near-ish to the end of its lifecycle, and it’s going to continue to be difficult to get that massive V8 to pass emissions in the coming years. So, we should just enjoy it while we can.

It’ll be interesting to see if any sort of legal issues arise with this announcement. This isn’t the first time Stellantis has extended the life of a once-limited run vehicle. We previously reported that it did the same thing a while back with the Dodge Durango Hellcat. It was originally limited to just the 2021 model year, but Dodge decided to bring it back for 2023. As you may have imagined, this rubbed a lot of 2021 owners the wrong way, and Stellantis ended up being sued over the move – accused of unjust enrichment and false advertising.

Anyway, there aren’t going to be too many changes between the 2024 and 2025 Wrangler 392 Final Editions. It’ll still get the 6.4-liter Hemi V8 with 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque and an eight-speed automatic – capable of doing 0-60 in a mind-boggling 4.5 seconds and the quarter mile in just 13 seconds.

Among other things, there is a half-inch suspension lift (good for 11.6 inches of ground clearance and 34.5 inches of water fording), rock sliders, a grille guard, a Warn winch rated for 8,000 pounds and special decals on the hood and fender vents. You also get the Xtreme 35 Tire Package as standard with 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels and beefy 35-inch tires.

Inside the Wrangler 392 Final Edition, you’ll find seats trimmed in black Nappa leather with gold accents. As is tradition with all “last” cars these days, you’ll also get special badging that lets everyone know you paid top dollar for the Final Edition, even if you missed the boat on the first Final Edition.

Jeep hasn’t announced pricing as of yet, but it will probably be similar to the 2024 model’s $101,890 (including $1,895 for designation) MSRP.

Regardless of whether or not Jeep will get in trouble for this move, I commend the truck maker. The Wrangler 392 is something that deserves to live on – even if it’s more ridiculous than practical.
