Wanderlust and Found! A Close Look at the 2024 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392

The past few years in America have given us many reasons to embrace distractions. There is more appeal to bust out of the cubicle and into the wild now than ever! While pop culture and world events can distract some, Jeeping is an excellent escape from reality. A close look at the 2024 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 offers up “a sometimes doorless unicorn of freedom!”

A Close Look at the 2024 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392

XXL tires, a sensational V8, and a means to truly escape are intense draws for any vehicle. The 2024 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392’s star of the show does happen to be the powertrain! Many diehard Jeep fans have long abided by their fun beginning where the road ends. The V8’s 470 horsepower is ⅓ of what Monster Jam contenders flaunt! 

Directly out of the garage, the Car and Driver crew fell in love with the 90 decibels emitting from the exhaust. When they test-drove a 2022 model, they declared it was a “rocket-propelled basset hound.” The crew was then hitting 60 mph in just 4 seconds. They also throttled through the quarter-mile in just 12.8 seconds at 104 mph. 

Mud, Sweat, and Plush: Exploring Things Inside

Jeeps have always been known for their coarse charm. This year’s Wrangler has a newly redesigned interior ideal for hitting the trail! The star feature is a great new 12.3-inch touchscreen situated on the upper dashboard. This 392 trim also features Badge of Honor trail guidance. 

The graphics are crisp and modern, with a very practical menu structure. The re-engineered front seats now feature 12-way power adjustments. The windshield also now offers additional sound insulation. During testing, it was deemed that this addition may not work so well, but that’s part of the Jeep experience!

Nature’s Playground: The Call of the Wild and the Wrangler’s Roar:

Driving in incredibly comfortable confines is not always what the North Face” crowd is after! It’s excellent that the Wrangler Rubicon 392 offers a bit of cush, but is more suited for those looking to tame the wild. The EPA city estimate of 12 mpg won’t matter much when considering the days of beefy obstacle conquering that lie ahead of you!  

The X-treme Recon 35-inch tire package offers 3.5 inches of suspension lift, while avidly flexing as an aggro river-fording machine. The Wrangler’s commanding view of the road offers a very bullet-proof and tree-root-crushing stance! The Dana 44 rear axle operates with an expertly designed means of lubricating its pinion bearings. 

Wrangling the Elements: How the Jeep Became an Outdoor Enthusiast’s Dream

The amiable and trusty Wrangler has never been more popular! Its roots were solidified when the US military needed reliable 4-wheel vehicles during WWII. The performance of the vehicle was so class-leading that Jeep ushered in a cult classic among civilians as well. The CJ Jeep was introduced by Willys in the 1940s.

Riding on a separate body and frame, the CJ was loved for its flared fenders and ability to ride without doors. The Jeep CJs can claim the title of the most successful utility vehicle ever constructed in the USA. The Wrangler’s concept promised the same capability while offering more comfort. 

All-in & Inspiring Humble Beginnings:

The Wrangler was first introduced at the 1986 Chicago Auto Show. Part of its distinctive look was marked by the way the blades poised cheerfully on the windshield. Some of the early soft-top Wranglers had zippered plastic windows that could be removed.

U.S mail carriers even employed Wrangler TJs with an automatic transmission! The Wrangler’s first four-door model was the 2006 JK. The JK’s stability control was considerably better than the early models. Newer models such as the Wrangler Rubicon 392 have a bit more length but still hold on to the Jeep spirit that has won so many over.

The Fastest, Loudest, and Rowdiest:

Since this HEMI V8 may be phased out soon, engines such as the Hurricane twin-turbo inline-six are standing by to fit the bill! The “Final Edition 392” is expected to get special exterior colors, unique wheel finishes, fancy interior stitching, and a heaping serving of Final Edition decor. Many are staying tuned for a potential March debut of the Final Edition in Moab, Utah.  

What do you think of this year’s striking Wrangler Rubicon? Would you prefer it over a crossover, or is it just not quite domesticated enough for you?
