The eight-cylinder returned to the Jeep Wrangler

The novelty arrives under the official name Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392. Under the hood is a HEMI engine with eight cylinders arranged in the shape of the letter V with a volume of 6.4 liters. The car has 470 horsepower and 637 Nm of torque. As a result, the new Jeep accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in just 4.5 seconds.

To make everything work as it should, Jeep has chosen an eight-speed transmission for the most powerful Wrangler, which for the first time in this model has the option of shifting under the steering wheel. The engineers also seem to have toyed with the sound of the exhaust. The wrangler has an active, either manual or automatic flap on it.

The vehicle also has Torque Reserve and AMax shifting driving systems. Both make the car even faster on hard surfaces. Torque Reserve is also used by American dragsters because it monitors the supply of fuel to the cylinders and the ideal ignition timing.

However, in addition to fast performance on the road, the Jeep still counts on the fact that the Wrangler Rubicon must be a great off-road vehicle. That’s why the car’s ground clearance has risen by 5 centimeters, and Fox shock absorbers and special heavy-duty brakes have been added to the wheels.

The basis of everything is the Select-Track 4WD all-wheel drive system. You can choose from 4 modes, the car also has Dana 44 axles and several differential locks. Combined with 17-inch wheels and giant off-road tires, the Wrangler won’t leave you in trouble or off the road.

The appearance of the American off-road riding icon has also changed slightly. The designers had to come up with a large intake engine in advance, which affected the typical appearance of the radiator grille. The car also has a long line of Rubicon inscriptions and leather seats in the interior.

According to the manufacturer, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 will be the pinnacle of the model. It should arrive on the market in the spring of 2021. The price is still unknown.

The original reports said that the obstacles to the installation of a large eight-cylinder were crash tests, but these were apparently successfully completed internally. In its history, the iconic Jeep had an eight-cylinder under the hood, but at that time it was not yet called the Wrangler, but the CJ-7. Until 1981, it had a five-liter under the hood from AMC with an output of 127 horsepower and 295 Nm.
