There was a thread from someone who attended an FCA press event, and from talking to FCA staff he got the impression that FCA wasn't serious about bringing the 392 JL to market.
The OP on that thread also would not elaborate any further than "Based on some of the things they said, it seemed like this won't happen".
the Rubitron guy said in another post he talked to FCA contacts he's worked with before and they told him March of 2021.

So at this point we still have zero info on way or another. It's a net zero. Other than the opinions and wishes everyone has... We'll see I guess.

Brother anytime you want to wheel I would be more than happy to meet you somewhere. I don't trailer my Jeep I just drive there and wheel, to me it's all part of the experience.
I'll have to drive to meet but eh, it's fine! I got a Jeep for a reason!

Here is a screenshot from Mopar's Instagram Stories showing a hinted at 392 Wrangler in the coming soon Hydro Blue color! Maybe next year, we'll see a 392 production Wrangler!

It “WAS” a 392 crate motor, is an explicit statement and the screenshot infers it will be in a JL.
Words mean something. That’s my read and unless a whitehouse handler explains it differently, haha.
I’ll be ready when it is.

i got 6.4 reasons why.
Sounds dirty.

I took it to mean that it was a 392 crate and not really a production model. In time we will know.

@TXRubicon?

@MoparMike, I can’t find that screenshot anywhere. Seems like it just disappeared.

The hydra blue appears to have gold tow hooks. We know how Jeep likes to change colors on them for different models. Red for Rubicon, light blue for 4XE so gold for hemi kinda makes sense. I have my diesel but hope y’all get your V8.
the other 392s have had gold hooks also

It should still be up, let me check to see if something happened.

2019 JLU Rubicon
I had someone associated with Jeep say something to me that made me believe that the Hemi Wrangler will be rolled out this spring (2021). Can’t give up my source as I don’t want to get them in trouble for saying something they weren’t supposed to, but I’m trying to hold off buying more mods for my 2019 JLUR just in case. If it comes out with 37” tires, there is no way I’m not getting it!
