Would love to have a V8 wrangler. I have now a JLU sport soft top 3.6 and don't regret it a minute. It came from dealer w Mopar lift kit, 35s and 20 inch pro comp tires/wheels. I have now invested at least 20K in after market parts. Magna flow Cat-Back Exhaust, 8 inch radio head and a/c controls pkg from infotainment, auto start bypass, Dv8 front and rear bumpers, Warn H20 winch, multiple procomp lights, lux rock lights w adjustable color range, led upgrade all around, front and rear air lockers and diff covers, ARB dual Air compressor, Katzkin red leather seat upgrade, interior makeover to red to match seats, Genesis dual battery system, hood lift cylinders, under hood led lights, monster hooks front and rear... Getting a Rubicon over rated. Will be getting Fuel wheels and maxxis tires, Terra Flex long arm 5 inch lift with adjustable fox shocks. Will also get supercharger and after engine blown, swap in a V8 392 as inevitably someone will specialize in that. My rig after its totally done will be close to 90 grand... If u have to ask how much, u can't afford it...

2018 JLU
My 1982 CJ5 came with an in-line 6 and a 4-speed. Not long after I bought it, I yanked the L6 and threw an AMC 304 v8 in it. Oh, but it sounded nice! The torque was nice and it did everything I wanted it to do. It probably had 165 HP and that felt strong in a CJ5. I can't imagine 470 HP in my JLU! Whoever has that kind of money and need for thrills will love it.

I'm not envious as I'm too old to be sucked into what FCA is doing, but when I was 27... I would have sold my house to get one!

And to think a Jeep dealer will discount a 392 is like thinking Santa Claus actually rides in a reindeer powered sleigh. :CWL:

Not true.....I always look at prices of things I buy and do so trying to get the best price. If prices aren't posted....I ask how much..

I realize that your statement is a cliche, but again not true for a lot of people in this forum. I can afford a 392 now or when they come out, but I (along with several here) just chose not to. Especially when I have a super nice fully capable JL now. Being able to afford things is all relative anyway. I've seen several extremely nice vehicles parked at mediocre apartment complexes throughout my years, so it just boils down to each their own and one should spend their money on whatever makes them wake up in the morning and look in the mirror and feel good about themselves.

This one was over $100K - and it doesn't even have a hemi. ;)

It's all relative really. If the V8 was available when I got mine, I probably would have gone for it. Eventually, I will do a swap, but it won't be a crate motor.

I could see me doing the same in time. It will cost way more than a factory 392 though and all I want is the 5.7

With JL Hemi swaps costing 30K and more, the 77K price tag for the 392 option is the better road to follow, that is if you really need that much power.

Only true if you don’t already own a built JL. Otherwise the swap could be cheaper to get comparable builds.

I paid 43k otd for my rubicon. Another 30+k puts me at that price point from the factory and that doenst include the extra goodies that come with it. This isnt a bad deal.

Same here. Paid 42 for ours. doesn't include the 10+ in extras I have tho. So let's say 52+30 for the swap, and you have a lifted hemi...with NO warranty tho. I would think the warranty from FCA would be worth a lot when things start breaking on these.

Went to check on my order and I noticed there was a price next to it. I also have a VIN, where I didn't last time I checked (before Christmas). Maybe it's a mistake on their site, but I think this is pretty close to where I thought it would be. When I click on the POC, there's nothing listed. Kinda Crazy!

Clarification: it shows in the system as an Unlimited Sport, but the "27X" code is the 392 package.

You missed the word "built". Stock Wrangler (non 392) vs Stock Wrangler 392 you are probably right. Even then maybe not. You are not getting to get what you paid when you sell it. You have to take that out of the equation as you will have to sell to get the 392. Your $43K Jeep probably sells for $35 plus $35K for the build and you are ahead rather than spending $80K for a 392

When you have a BUILT Wrangler not so much. To sell your non BUILT 392 and then buy a stock 392 and BUILD it back to where your non 392 is you would be much better off just adding the Hemi via the couple of reputable after market places that are offering a warranty on that build.

Not to fuel the speculative fire, but I think we will get all get a pleasant surprise at MSRP when it's made official. I think the base MSRP will definitely be in the mid $60s. They won't sell these things higher than that. Nothing is official until it's official.

For what it's worth, in another thread on this forum, someone stated that the 27X Package (for 392) is a $30,545 option package, and the screenshots in this thread show that the way this was ordered is a Wrangler Sport with 27X Package. The $30,545 option on top of Wrangler Sport Base MSRP ($33,310 including destination) would give the 392 a Base MSRP of $63,855. I think that is where this thing is going to land.

For those comparing the 392 against the EcoDiesel and it's pricing, I think the Rubicon Diesel buyer and 392 buyer are very different buyers, buying their Wranglers for very different reasons.

For the OP and others that have ordered 392s, myself included, I am like a kid on Christmas waiting for official pricing, and crossing my fingers that we will get a nice surprise on the official price.

I'm asking Santa for a VIN as my belated Xmas gift... Santa is slacking on that one!
