The current generation of the famous off-roader has been around for a while but we are pretty sure that the next year won’t bring any particular changes. The same is expected with the most capable variant of the SUV, which is known as the Rubicon. Compared to standard models, this version brings a plethora of upgrades, particularly in terms of chassis and suspension setup, but there are also some pretty exclusive features in terms of the styling and on the inside. So, the 2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon should carry on in the same way.
We expect the same from the recently introduced 392 version as well. For the first time, the legendary SUV came with a V8 engine under the hood, which brings performances to the next level. This version also comes with a plethora of exclusive features, which can be found in standard Rubicon models.
2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Engines
When it comes to the powertrain, a good thing about this version is that it’s available with all kinds of powertrain options. Without any doubt, the 2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon will carry on in the same way, offering several well-known units. Of course, base models will be equipped with a well-known 3.6-liter V6, which puts out around 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. You can also pick a 2.0-liter turbo-four, which is good for about 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. Despite it has less power, it actually offers better driving dynamics, thanks to more torque.
Speaking of the torque, an optional 3.0-liter turbodiesel is also an excellent choice for off-roading, due to its magnificent 440 pound-feet of torque. It is also quite powerful (260 hp), so driving dynamics are also pretty good. Finally, there is the 2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392, which will continue with the well-known 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine, which delivers 470 horsepower.
2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Design
When it comes to base design characteristics, a good thing to know is that this version, unlike Sahara, is available in both body styles, either as a 2-door or 4-door model. Furthermore, it comes with a plethora of upgrades compared to the standard model. Of course, there are some styling details that separate this model from the crowd, but those features under the skin seem far more important, so we will focus on them.
Some of the things you’ll notice first are 17-inch wheels with large 33-inch off-road tires and along with them, you may count on larger fender flares, which definitely have a big impact on the overall appearance. Furthermore, there are significant chassis and drivetrain upgrades, starting from heavy-duty Dana 44 front and rear axles with a shorter 4.10 gear ratio, along with electronic locking front and rear differentials. Also, the electronic disconnecting front stabilizer bar is on the list of standard equipment, just like rock rails.
In terms of comfort and convenience, you may count on things like power windows, cloth upholstery, automatic climate control, keyless entry and push-button start.
2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Features
The recently-introduced 2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 will also continue in the same way. Of course, the key feature of this version is that powerful 6.4-liter Hemi V8 engine, but there are several more standard features you don’t get in regular Rubicon models. For example, you may count on a couple of exclusive styling details, such as a revised hood design and bronze accents. More importantly, this model comes with an upgraded suspension, with FOX shocks and 2-inch higher ground clearance.
A V8 engine isn’t just about the power but also about the sound. Therefore, this version comes standard with the active exhaust system and four exhaust pipes.
On the inside, you may count on upgraded, leather seats, which feature better side support. The steering wheel is also covered with leather and comes with another exclusive feature – paddle shifters.
