Remember when the G8 Ford Bronco was paraded (or tried) with the V8-powered Wrangler 392 concept? Many people laughed at the move and many were doubtful whether it would actually reach production or become a concept forever.
When we got the chance to get behind the wheel of one, this suspicion intensified. Because despite driving a Hemi-powered Wrangler Concept vehicle, Jeep said it was “not a preview of a specific production model, but a proof of concept.”
Seems like a big lie.
As you can see in embedded Instagram The video above, a Jeep Wrangler sprinkled among the dirt. Not that it’s surprising for a Jeep, but it has come up with a caption that says “some concepts are so powerful in reality that they turn into storms”
But the next sentence was the one that confirmed everything.
“Production model shown. Available 2021.”
This is it, friends. The Hemi V8-powered Wrangler 392 is headed for production and we’ll probably see it in full detail as we think. If you’re still skeptical if it’s really Hemi under the hoodie, then turn on the voice of the teaser above and listen to that glorious rumble.
While this originally confirms a V8-powered Wrangler, it does not guarantee that the Wrangler 392 concept that we previously ran is the exact model for production. But if this is any indication, you can expect SRT’s 6.4-liter Hemi V8 to produce up to 450 horsepower (336 kW) and 450 pound-feet (610 newton-meters). These numbers will be above every other stock off-roader you can buy in the market today, including the upcoming Bronco Raptor.
Said- your move, Ford.
