Jeep’s Wrangler Rubicon 392 Final Edition Lacks One Thing: Finality

We are all Charlie Brown, and Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, and Ram parent company Stellantis is like Lucy with the football—at least when it comes to the automaker’s promises about final-year and final edition models being, well, truly final. Does anyone remember the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat? Just before it launched, Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis strongly implied that 2021 would be the only model year that a Durango Hellcat would be available, due to tightening regulations that would make its supercharged engine difficult to certify in coming years. You do remember? Ok good. Now, do you remember in 2023 when Dodge literally brought the Durango Hellcat back? So do we, and we’re sure plenty of angry Durango Hellcat owners who shelled out cash over sticker for their supposedly one-year-only super-SUVs do, too. But, fool us once…

When the 2024 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Final Edition was revealed, we were convinced it wasn’t a drill this time. The V-8-powered Wrangler enjoyed a multi-year run, but also appeared to be going away (you know, as the whole “Final Edition” thing implies). Looks like Stellantis has once again flipped the script on us.

It’s just been confirmed that the Jeep Wrangler 392 Final Edition is coming back for the 2025 model year. As far as we can tell, there aren’t even any specific features like exclusive paint colors for 2025 or new standard equipment, let alone a name change to “Jeep Wrangler 392 Final Final No-We’re-Actually-Serious-This-Time-But-Maybe-Who-Knows.”

Jeep is citing “popular demand” as the reason for the Final Edition’s extension, and, admittedly, it didn’t seem there was a stated reason for the V-8 Wrangler’s demise as there was with the earlier Durango Hellcat models (no emissions hurdles, etc.). “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.”

We’re curious how those who may have already paid dealers markups to get their hands on the allegedly end-of-run 2024 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Final Edition feel about the decision to keep the model going for another year. If we’re being fair, technically Jeep never explicitly stated that the (2024) Final Edition was a terminus for the V-8-engined Wrangler, though its March 2024 press release blared that the Jeep, which is “the quickest and most powerful Wrangler yet—is roaring off into the sunset with a special, limited-production Final Edition.” It turns out, that sunset lasted a little longer, and you’ll have another model year (if not more) to keep after a V-8 Wrangler.
