Jeep Extends Departure of Wrangler 392 Final Edition

by | June 19, 2024

Just a few months after Jeep officials announced the end of Wrangler 392 would come at the end of this model year, it’s rethought the plan. Now it will extend the swan song of the most powerful Wrangler into the 2025 model year.

The Jeep Wrangler 392 is the quickest and most powerful Wrangler ever. It is coming back for the 2025 model year due to popular demand, officials said.

The brand revealed in March that the run of the 392 would end this year, so to mark the occasion, it created a special edition of the Wrangler — complete with a special price tag of $99,995. That number hits six figures once you at the $1,895 destination charge.

Unsurprisingly, buyers hustled into dealerships for the 2024 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Final Edition. And now, also not a surprise given the company’s recent history of deciding the last edition of a vehicle may not really be the last version, the company’s extending the run of the Wrangler 392.

“When news broke in March that Jeep Wrangler 392 was roaring off into the sunset, the comments, coverage and conversation showed us that the Jeep community isn’t quite ready to say goodbye to the V-8-powered Wrangler,” said Bill Peffer, senior vice president and head of Jeep brand North America. “Jeep brand listened and will continue the 392 Final Edition into the 2025 model year.”

Last Call

Jeep’s sibling brand, Dodge, has been issuing the “Last Call” for its V8-powered vehicles for some time now. The latest being the Dodge Durango SRT 392 AlcHEMI. It’s putting out 475 horsepower to keep pace with its other brand siblings in the Last Call run.

Jeep initially announced the 2024 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Final Edition model would be the last one.

Dodge put out seven versions of its “Last Call” Charger and Challenger last year. The final model was the 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170. The previous Hemi-powered Last Call vehicles were the Dodge Challenger Shakedown, Dodge Charger Super Bee, Dodge Challenger and Charger Scat Pack Swinger, Dodge Charger King Daytona and Dodge Challenger Black Ghost.

Production of those vehicles ended Dec. 31, 2023. However, this is Stellantis we’re talking about. If they’ve got one thing in spades, its back stock. While the production may have come to an end, there are still several 2023 Last Call Dodge Chargers and Challengers on dealer lots awaiting buyers.

High interest rates, high sticker prices and high gas prices combined to give some fans of the vehicles reason to pause. Additionally, Dodge has in the past said it would be the last time it was building something, then reneged on that proclaimation.

Better than the last last one

Of course, the new last model comes with some tweaks to separate it from its predecessor. Officials call the 2025 Wrangler 392 Final Edition the “quickest and most powerful” Wrangler thus far — which is kind of true.

The quickest, fastest and most powerful muscle car in the world — the 1,025 hp 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 was the final “Last Call” model.

It starts with a 6.4-liter Hemi V8 putting out 470 hp and 470 pound-feet of torque. That combo results in a 0 to 60 time of 4.5 seconds and a quarter mile run in 13 seconds flat. Those are the same numbers for the 2024 Final Edition.

The new model comes standard with an 8,000-pound-capacity Warn winch, 11.6 inches of ground clearance, 34.5 inches of water fording, heavy-duty rock sliders and more. Just like its predecessor.

It’s Trail Rated capability in any condition with a Selec-Trac two-speed transfer case, intuitive full-time four-wheel drive, heavy-duty wide track Dana 44 axles with Tru-Lok electronic locking differentials and electronic front sway-bar disconnect. Also like its predecessor.

Plenty in common

The 2025 Jeep Wrangler 392 Final Edition will continue to offer much of the standard equipment found on the 2024 392 Final Edition, including:

  • Exclusive hood and fender vent decals
  • Black Nappa leather-trimmed seats
  • Specially monogrammed shifter medallion and swing gate plaque
  • Half-inch suspension lift
  • Heavy-duty rock sliders
  • Mopar fold-out swing gate table
  • Standard Xtreme 35 Package with bronze 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels and 35-inch BFGoodrich all-terrain tires

The Mopar triple loop grille guard and Mopar Jeep 83-piece toolkit will remain exclusive to 2024 model-year 392 Final Edition vehicles.

Production of 2025 Jeep Wrangler 392 to begin in Q1 2025 with orders opening later this year. Jeep officials failed to offer up any pricing information for the new model; however, it’s likely to be the same
