The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 was a ton of fun while it lasted. Unfortunately, albeit expectedly, Jeep's V-8-powered convertible off-roader will soon hit the dusty trail for good. At least that's what it looks like based on a report today by Motor1, who spotted a post from earlier this month on JL Wrangler Forums that included a document to Jeep dealers discussing a 2024 Wrangler Rubicon 392 Final Edition. And we all know that means.

Bye-Bye, V-8 Wrangler

The Jeep-penned document reportedly states that dealers who exceed their sales from last month will be allocated a single '24 Rubicon 392 Final Edition. Considering the insane markups these days, we expect dealerships to be highly motivated to win Jeep's golden ticket, especially since the standard Rubicon 392 already has a teeth-clenching MSRP of $93,440. Obviously, the Final Edition will cost even more—almost certainly six figures.

Since the 2024 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Final Edition hasn't been officially confirmed, we can't say how many the brand plans to sell. We reached out to a Jeep spokesperson to ask about the report and any other information, but we've yet to hear back. For context, Ram said it will build 4000 copies of the TRX Final Edition.

Just like Ram did with its 702-hp supercharged V-8 supertruck, Jeep's Final Edition Wrangler will almost certainly be fully loaded with options but have the same powertrain as variants with the special badging. That means under its hood will be a 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 making 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. That helped blast the one we tested to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds. It also completed the quarter-mile in 12.9 seconds at 104 mph.

Unless Jeep builds a high-performance electric Wrangler (not impossible), the Rubicon 392 will go down as the quickest production Wrangler ever built. Without a doubt, it will forever remain the loudest.
