I think it says 3.92

You can just BARELY see what looks to be a period after the 3. Wondering if this is going the inline 6 rumors were talking about.

I don’t understand why they’d develop a completely new engine when they could slap the preexisting 392 in there and everyone would be happy.

A bunch of the automakers, FCA included have been working on new i6's for awhile now. They're cheaper to make than v6's, use less parts and generally have more torque.

My guess is it’ll be a $9000 option. Very cool if it comes to fruition.

They need something to counter the SVT Bronco Warthog with a 400Hp turbo V6 (from the Lincoln Aviator).

Easiest way is a Hemi as it's readily available and cheap to build. FCA has nothing else between current engines in Wrangler and the 392 in current production.
