A post on the Jeep Wrangler enthusiast forum JLWrangler.com shared information about the 2024 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Final Edition.
The posting shows a special sales event that awards a dealership one allocation of a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 ‘Final Edition.’
The end of the Hemi in the Jeep Wrangler would follow the trend of the V8 leaving other Stellantis products.
If you saw the news about the Dodge Durango’s new Last Call model, this might not be too big of a surprise. According to a post on the JLWrangler.com forum, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 is seeing the end of the road.
This post included a yearly sales challenge to fight for allocations of an alleged Wrangler Rubicon 392 Final Edition. Of course, this is only speculation until the folks from Jeep and Stellantis can confirm the Wrangler is losing its V8 variant. However, looking at the Hemi’s trajectory, it’s hard to not take this forum post at face value.
Dodge, Jeep, and Ram have all been moving away from the Hemi V8. Famously, Dodge ceased Challenger and Charger production at the end of 2023, and the Hemi’s presence in the Dodge portfolio went away with those two models.
Jeep recently pulled the Hemi from its Wagoneer models and made the 3.0-liter Hurricane inline six-cylinder the only available engine. You still can get a Hemi under the hood of the Grand Cherokee, but the clock is almost certainly ticking for that, too.
It wouldn’t be too surprising to see the team at Jeep send off the Wrangler Rubicon 392 with a special edition when its time does come to an official end. A Stellantis spokesman declined to comment on the accuracy of the web posting.
