  1. 2022 Color Wish List

    Navy A darker green
  2. 392 includes mandatory Selec-Trac and CV joints. Is this a fatal flaw for anyone?

    I think Jeep would call that a feature. I'm not so sure that they want to sell a lot of 392s. It provides a Halo vehicle that outguns the Bronco, and they can claim that they answered the enthusiasts by offering a v8. But selling too many will make a big hit to their CAFE numbers. Now look...
  3. Pricing announced for 2021 Wrangler Rubicon 4xe and Sahara 4xe

    One reason may be that conventional hybrid sales are dominated by Prius/Toyota and Honda. But other automakers with less stellar reliability reputations, who missed the first hybrid wave, largely skipped right to plug ins. I also suspect that because the ICE in a plug in runs far less than a...

    The J6 was built off a JL, not the Gladiator chassis.
  5. 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 V8 - Specs, Wallpapers, Videos!

    I've been skeptical that the Gladiator will get the 392. Wrangler had looming competition from Bronco. They needed to fire back. The Gladiator had no such competition. The ZR2 doesn't have a hot engine option, and the alleged Bronco pickup is years away. Unless Ford reverses course with a NA...
  6. Update: Reveal Coming Nov 17 @ 12PM ET! Production 392 Hemi V8 Jeep Wrangler Officially Teased!

    I think they're suggesting merely that a 392 Gladiator is unlikely for Australia, not that it's unlikely overall. That said, I'm somewhat skeptical that the Gladiator will get it. Wrangler needed an engine to best a 2.7l Bronco. Gladiator has no such imminent competition. Jeep doesn't need to...
  7. Update: Reveal Coming Nov 17 @ 12PM ET! Production 392 Hemi V8 Jeep Wrangler Officially Teased!

    They likely don't want a high take rate. The hit to the CAFE numbers would be terrible if they swap too many pstars for 5.7s. Also probably the reason it'll be limited to the Rubicon and Mojave, if the poster above is to be believed. Halo vehicle and bragging rights until the I6 is ready...
  8. Update: Reveal Coming Nov 17 @ 12PM ET! Production 392 Hemi V8 Jeep Wrangler Officially Teased!

    This is why. Jeep can't afford the CAFE hit of swapping a significant number of pstars for hemis. But the 392 gives them a Halo/bragging rights vehicle, that won't likely sell enough to matter for CAFE. This is all probably just filler until the I6 is ready, which will give them options for...
  9. Grand Wagoneer anyone?

    I haven't heard of anything firm. Supposedly it was originally targeted for the GW, although some rumors suggested it might debut in the new Grand Cherokee.
  10. Grand Wagoneer anyone?

    It's in development and will be turbocharged. It's based on the 2.0, though supposedly with tighter cylinder spacing, so that it's only a few inches longer than the Tigershark 4 cylinder.
  11. TACTICAL URBAN VEHICLE. Thoughts?

    First gen was JK based from what I read. Current model is JL.

    Starting 1:16:30 in they begin to discuss the 392. The one guy says that it was confirmed to him in November 2018 that this was going into production. The Kuniskis quote was from April 2019. November 2018. April 2019. I'm sure he just didn't know that the engineers had figured out the...

    Yes, I know. In your world, extra components don't actually take up physical space or provide any resistance. Thus, there is literally no difference between a supercharged engine and its NA variant. It's definitely just an as of yet unannounced technical solution. None of this is unclear to...

    Ah, yes, the magical components that provide no more resistance than air.
  16. Spied! V8 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Hemi Production Version Begins Testing!

    Yes, I get it. Kuniskis is a liar. You want to try another way of saying it?

    Okay. I don't know why you are so stubbornly locked into something that was never said. I'm not "locked into" anything. I too ran on the assumption that he was referring to all Hemis. Until I went looking for the actual quote... to show why Jeep wouldn't do it... and realized I was mistaken...

    I just subscribed today, so I'm not positive, but it's probably this one. https://traffic.libsyn.com/secure/truckshowpodcast/Ep_130_Bonus_comp_v2.mp3?dest-id=671427

    And they are, specifically because of poor results attempting to DI/FI the pentastar.
