    Default Jeep Wrangler Rubicon V8!!!

    A Jeep Wrangler V8 concept has been unveiled within hours of the covers coming off the new Ford Bronco in the US – and the company says fans “may soon get their wish”.

    The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept is powered by a 6.4-litre V8 (392 in cubic inches) with a claimed output of 335kW/610Nm (450hp/450lb-ft in the old money) – enough to do the 0 to 60mph dash (0 to 97kmh) in “less than 5 seconds”.

    “The new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept is an indication they may soon get their wish,” the company said in a media statement issued overnight after yesterday releasing a blurry image of a bonnet with ‘392’ on it.

    The V8 was a key element missing from the wrangler lineup. Now all jeep needs to do is build the Safari concept with some proper payload ability(Coil with airbags support) and they are going to cover a lot more of the market.

    agreed, a proper steel roof would go a long way

    the concept vehicle was done, wonder why they never went further?

    Im hoping its because the pickup market is a lot more lucrative in the US than a long wheelbase wagon......but now they have the Gladiator wheelbase and development sorted this might not be far off.

    yes, it is real, a factory concept car that was created for the US motor shows to check public interest

    The JT Gladiator was done the same way and it is now in production.
