Jeep Wrangler/Gladiator coming soon
If they did D60s, even at a $30K premium it's a STEAL and I would trade my 2021 JLUR in.
It's probably going to top out at 70k. Engine will be 10k, extras will be 5k. Jeep starts at 57k.

Based on the direction they're going with the Ram TRX, and their launch pricing of other "halo vehicles": I would say that guess is pretty accurate.

Yeah, I hope that it will be that number. 70k for 392 power and 37s and HD axles would be kind of a steal.

For $70 I'd still probably jump on one, even if it had D44s. I'd have the extended warranty for sure!

Great, now I'm back to deciding whether to factory order a Rubicon or not haha. If this actually happens it will be a game changer. Count me in!

The only other vehicle, I would put my dogs in, is a Tahoe and they are around 70 grand, so count me in!
The only thing I would change is the tires, the 35's would make it too high for my white Boxer, the girl is getting old.
Second though, maybe they will beef up a stock wrangler with a 392, no lift kit, no 35's, WOW what a sleeper that would be!

It seems most in this thread are skeptical. I’m skeptical that they’re not coming out with a more capable/powerful Wrangler.
Jeep has cornered the off road market. I can’t see them letting Ford just waltz in and take it away from them.

FCA is definitely feeling the heat from Ford(rightly so) and I'm sure they know they need to upgrade dealer service levels and offer a sexy motor to help combat the bronco launch. I still dont understand why they dont drop in the Dodge Ram 5.7 liter V8 with ultimate d44 axles. It would sound good, produce 410 lb ft of torque and would be a significant upgrade over the 3.6 and 2.0 motors. I bet they could offer it as a $6-7k upgrade package. The ram with the 5.7 gets 23mpg on the HWY...solid IMHO.

I would love a 392 Wrangler. However, I seriously wish Jeep would focus on correcting current Wrangler issues like the corrosion, differential and seat problems, before developing a $70,000 V8 Wrangler that only a fraction of folks actually can afford.

I would throw a supercharger on my 3.6 before I shell out 70-80k for a Jeep. I don't understand people's fascination with 2 doors either. They need to be dwarf tossed onto a dirty mattress.
