Jeep Wrangler To Get V8 In 2021

Jeep teased a 392 Wrangler concept this past summer – Everyone knew it wasn’t just a concept


  • Confirmed in an Instagram post that reads: “Gert Dirty Faster.”

  • This will make it the most powerful factory Wrangler ever.


Was there ever really any doubt? Despite FCA and Jeep not really considering the all-new Ford Bronco a threat, the fact of the matter is that the numerous updates and trims added to the Jeep Wrangler in the last year or so are not a coincidence. The latest announcement however is the one we all wanted to happen.

Back in July, only two days before Ford was to reveal the Bronco, Jeep teased the truck-world with a teaser image of a Wrangler with a 392 6.4-litre Hemi V8. Immediately, it was clear that it was going to make it as a production model, or so everyone thought. Following the Bronco reveal, the absence of a V8 engine spawned numerous discussions. The questioning was put to bed when Ford confirmed that there would be no V8 in the Bronco.

This must-have pleased FCA greatly and in a post on Instagram, they’ve confirmed that the Wrangler indeed be available with a Hemi V8 in 2021. And judging by the sound in the brief video, it’s a 392 and not a 5.7-litre. This is FCA at its best.

The question is now: Will Ford buckle under the pressure and drop a Coyote 5.0-litre V8 in the Bronco?
