Jeep only last week showed off a Wrangler concept fitted with Fiat Chrysler Automobile’s 6.4-liter V-8, and now we’ve spotted a prototype that’s likely for the production version.
The Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept, unveiled the same day as Ford’s reborn Bronco, featured an output of 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque, as well as subtle visual cues that hinted at its V-8.
The most obvious of these cues was the concept’s vented hood, which featured a “392” badge lining its power dome. Most readers will recognize 6.4 liters as measuring 392 cubic inches.
The prototype sports the same hood as the concept (minus the badging), along with a set of quad-exhaust tips. The wheel design is also the same as on the concept, in this case a set of 17-inch beadlock wheels with 37-inch mud-terrain tires.
