The Four Wheeler SUV of the Year Goes to the 2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392

Friday, January 21st, 2022
Jeep

The Wrangler Rubicon 392 with its V8 engine is the pinnacle of premium off-road SUVs. Other automakers try, but they can’t compare no matter their efforts. So, when others thought Jeep peaked, the automaker broke out the factory option. 

The 2022 Wrangler Rubicon 392 encompasses the best of the best when it comes to the V8 engine. The 6.4-liter HEMI V8 is the largest engine in the catalog, and the Wrangler’s fenders create a beast of a Rubicon. Once the V8 pairs with the iconic off-road hardware of Jeep’s Rubicon package and the Xtreme Recon package, it’s difficult to deny the 392 is the king of the off-road jungle and the 2022 Four Wheeler SUV of the Year.

 Ramp Travel Index RTI and Track Data 

Under the hood of the Rubicon 392 lies a hell-raising 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine. The engine yields 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, which garners the title of the most potent Jeep produced thus far. The V8’s support system is the TorqueFlite 8HP75 eight-speed automatic transmission and the MP3022 Selec-Trac transfer case. The full-time transfer case is phenomenal for traction. 

The 5,200-pound Jeep skyrockets from 0-60 mph on the track in less than 5 seconds. The Wrangler Rubicon jolts through 1,320 feet in less than 14 seconds, dashing across the finish line at 101.3 mph, which makes the SUV the quickest and fastest SUV MotorTrend has ever tested.  

Similar to the Wrangler Rubicon, the Jeep Wrangler 4xe, the 392 dominated the RTI ramp. With the front anti-roll bar engaged, both Wranglers climbed to 63 inches. When the 392 disconnected the electronic front anti-roll bar, it made an additional 18 inches (81 inches) up the ramp. 

Time to hit the Off-Roads 

There’s a notable contrast between the Rubicon 392 and the typical Wrangler Rubicon, and that’s gearing. The 392 harbors so much power that Jeep offers a 2.72:1 low range gear instead of the standard 4.0:1. The axle gears also see an alteration of 3.73:1 instead of the 4.10:1.

The 35-inch tires are a circulation of force with locking differential at both ends, a disconnecting anti-roll bar, rock slides, and skid plates, an unstoppable force on the off-road. As a result, the Jeep easily persevered through the steep, rutted hill climbs and rocky trails.  

Although the Wrangler Rubicon is an award-winning SUV, the addition of the Xtreme Recon package and the 6.4-liter V8 engine proves that Jeep engineered the perfect off-road king. At the heart of the 2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 is a vehicle eager to dominate, holding three of five spots in the judged categories.  It’s an honor to declare the Wrangler Rubicon 392 MotorTrend’s 2022 Four Wheeler SUV of the Year.

Duck, Duck, Jeep! Owners Get Creative With Their Jeep Vehicles

Friday, September 17th, 2021
Duck Duck Jeep
Duck Duck Jeep

Looking at Jeep, drivers can drive any other vehicle owners to envy. Just look at the Jeep wave. The Jeep wave is more natural than riding a bike. When two Jeep owners cross paths, it’s as if watching two family members embrace.  Jeep’s loyalty program, the Jeep Wave Program, is commemorating camaraderie. But seasons come and go, and muck like Summer fading to Fall, so has the Jeep Wave, with Jeep Ducking. The 2021 Jeep Ducking is the new craze systemic to sweep owners.

How One Small Gesture Brought A Wave of Rubber Duck Jeep Influencers Everywhere

Allison Parliament had no intentions of changing the world, but evolving the world is precisely what the Jeep celebrity did. So one day in June, Allison took a trip from Clanton, Alabama, to Ontario. Allison needed gas, so she stopped her 2018 Jeep Wrangler Sahara at the nearest gas station in a small Canadian town. Allison added a rubber ducky to the Jeep vehicle parked by her and the rest was history.

One Quacker to Change the World

Once Allison left the store, another beautiful Jeep lay in the parking lot. Allison inscribed “Nice Jeep” on the ducky and placed it on the stranger’s vehicle, and the owner noticed. “(He) came out and laughed. Said, ‘You need to put this on social media. We figured it would go around town, make a few people happy, and then fade out.” -Allison

That was far from the case. Instead, the spontaneous moment became a social media sensation, with Allison gaining 10,000 followers on Facebook. The rubber duckies appeared on Wranglers, Liberties, and Cherokees populating the US, Canada, and Mexico. Eventually, the rubber ducky traveled to Germany, Japan, and over thirty other countries. Jeep took notice of the notoriety and incorporated the new Wrangler Rubicon with the hashtag Jeep Ducking. Jeep Ducking unraveled a global game that’s prevailed beyond the Jeep, incorporating Subaru and classic cars. 

“We don’t cap it off at just Jeep, Everybody needs kindness and I think the last year has shown that we need more kindness than normal.”-Allison 

Ducks for Education 

Allison observed the kindness she spread and wanted to go a lot deeper than that. So the Ducking creator created the non-profit “Ducky Grants,” educators can apply for funds upward of $100 to buy supplies for the classroom, which often comes from the educator’s own pockets. 

“So many teachers give so much more than they have, we decided, why don’t we turn what good we have into something better.” – Allison 

Ducky Grants sells t-shirts and decals, with all proceeds going to the grant program. With Allison making great preparations for the Duck Duck Jeep Invasion in Wetumpka, Alabama. The event serves a double motive: for the non-profit and reconstructing downtown, which was devastated by a tornado two years prior.  The Duck Duck Jeep Invasion runs from October 17th through the 19th, and tickets are available through the Jeep Ducking Facebook page. The Invasion will raffle off a $10,000 1995 Wrangler CJ with several mods, including a lifted suspension, to add more heat to the Flames.

New Tantalizing Exterior Color for Jeep Wrangler Models

Friday, September 3rd, 2021

The 2021 Jeep Wranglers embraces with open arms the game-changing Tuscadero exterior paint color. 

The jubilantly new exterior color is a profoundly intense chromatic magenta that adds depth and appeal to the Jeep Wrangler palette.

The Tuscadero exterior becomes attainable for the first time on the Wrangler, and its availability includes the Sport, Sahara, Rubicon, 4xe, and 392 from now until November 2021.    

“With the Jeep brand celebrating its 80th anniversary, it’s the perfect time to launch a confident and custom color on the most iconic Jeep vehicle – both of which are designed to break the mold and stand out on the road and trails. What’s unique about colors like Tuscadero is that they draw a huge enthusiast following because they’re exciting, authentic and stand out, much like the Jeep community.” -Jeep Brand North American Vice President, Jim Morrison 

Again, please don’t wait until it’s too late, as the Tuscadero exterior paint option is only available for a limited time with an MSRP of $395. 

Miami Lakes Automall Jeep Gorilla Glass

 In July of 2021, Jeep unraveled the new Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) catalog. In addition, the performance catalog provides a look at Jeeps aftermarket accessories. The latest addition being Jeep’s Gorilla Glass.   

The Gorilla Glass replacement windshield is composed of chemical strengthener technology seen on every cell phone screen. 

There’s no need to stress any longer; Jeep Gladiators or Jeep Wranglers come equipped with Gorilla Glass directly from the factory without the aftermarket agitation. 

 “Customization is at the core of both Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Gladiator, and new colors and equipment allow the customer customization journey to begin at the factory…Bold colors like Gecko Green give our customers the chance to stand out on the trails, while the tough Gorilla Glass windshield will help them bring their Jeep home unscathed.” -Jeep Brand North American Vice President, Jim Morrison

Unfortunately, the Gecko Green exterior color is no longer available, but the Gorilla Glass MSRP is $95. 

The windshield is resilient, weightless, and invulnerable to destruction from off-road debris because of its ultra-thin inner ply carrying a 52% heftier outer ply. In addition, Gorilla Glass is tectonic for off-roaders as cracking a windshield increases substantially on those exhilarating trips.

Autonomous Off-Roading Anyone? Jeep Says Yes!

Thursday, July 15th, 2021
Miami Lakes Auto Mall Jeep Wrangler 4Xe
Miami Lakes Auto Mall Jeep Wrangler 4Xe

On July 8th (2021), the parent company of Jeep, Stellantis, organized an EV day event. On this day, Jeep declared it would electrify every single model by 2025. Jeep already maintains the number 1 best-selling PHEV, the Jeep Wrangler 4Xe. But Stellantis stated the Wrangler would need to morph into an electric vehicle to survive far beyond this decade. Jeep didn’t unleash any fully EV vehicles for the event, but they did provide a detailed release video that promised an array of Electric Jeep’s. 

The video begins with the very first Jeep; the 1945 CJ then comes the love story. In 2021, viewers follow two Jeep lovers hit with love at first sight at a solar charging station in the wilderness. Fast-forward to 2025, and the boyfriend proposes in a beautiful lake with an even more beautiful electric Wrangler in the background. 

Two variations of the Jeep were presented during the video, the four-door and two-door Wrangler. When the two-door model receives some solo shine, viewers can see the words “Freedom” inscribed on the side of the hood. In addition, the text “Concept BEV model shown” is also captured at the bottom of the screen, which coincides with Jeep’s new slogan “Zero Emission Freedom,” which implies the vehicle has an electric powertrain. 

There is a lot to take away from the 2025 scene. To begin, the future Wrangler will be equipped with biometric recognition. The lovely couple walks towards the vehicle, and it recognizes the boyfriend’s face, unlocks, and the Wrangler starts up. Peer-to-peer charging is also demonstrated when the girlfriend plugs the two-door into the four-door. The 2025 segment ends with the couple’s drone flying above, providing extra light on the nighttime off-road travel—another monumental scene to promote the future of Wrangler’s drone pairing capabilities.

After 2025 comes 2030, where the couple camps with the accompanying four-door model. While the couple is hiking, the four-door Wrangler is seen piloting through the off-road trails, to the amazement of a fellow Jeep owner driving in the opposite direction. This scene suggests the Wrangler will be proficient in autonomous off-roading by 2030. The final clip is the EV Jeep promoting flat-seat stargazing with the couple engulfed in each other watching the sky while the Jeep drives them to their destination. 

“Future models and features may vary,” this is what Jeep annotates at the bottom of the screen to inform viewers that futuristic technology is not promised. Nevertheless, the video provides some insight into what could potentially be next for the Wrangler EV and gives viewers a taste of what off-roading may look like for the future.

Say Hello to the No.1 Best-Selling PHEV In Q2, The 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4Xe

Monday, July 12th, 2021
Miami Lakes Automall Jeep Wrangler 4Xe
Miami Lakes Auto Mall Jeep Wrangler 4Xe

Reports are in 

The second quarter of 2021 has been kind to the new Jeep Wrangler 4xe, or at least that’s what the Fiat Chrysler Automobile (FCA) report states. 

“The Jeep brand continues its trailblazing performance, recording a 19% increase in total sales year-over-year, and its second-best ever the second quarter for U.S. retail sales. Wrangler recorded its best quarter ever for U.S. retail sales, while Gladiator posted its best quarter ever for U.S. retail sales, as well as U.S. total sales with 29,962 vehicles. – FCA 

The Jeep lineup continues to evolve since the launch of the Wrangler 4xe in March. The 4xe quickly soared to the best-selling hybrid on the market. But the FCA hasn’t provided a number for the number of plug-ins sold. The amount of 4Xe’s sold may be surprising, but customers are eager to take advantage of an electric drive off the road with a long-standing brand. 

About the Jeep Wrangler 4Xe

The 4Xe has 375 horsepower, 470 pounds of torque, 2.0-liter turbocharged in-line four, and an electric motor lodged between the engine and transmission. The hybrid can jump from 0 to 60 mph in less than 6 seconds and earned a 49 MPGe rating from the EPA. The powertrain gives drivers the option of choosing from hybrid, EV, or battery-save modes. The Jeep Wrangler 4Xe is only the beginning for Jeep, with the 2022 Grand Cherokee set to launch at the end of the year. The toe tag on the 4Xe begins at $49,805 (excluding destination fees). But the Wrangler 4Xe is merely a stepping stone with Jeep set to unveil an all-electric lineup by 2025.

Jeep Forges its Green Path Forward

Friday, April 2nd, 2021

Jeep is on a journey to change its reputation from king of traditional SUVs to “green” electrified vehicles to lure modern buyers and pioneer electrified off-road vehicles amid a sea of competitors. Stellantis, Jeep’s new parent company formed after the merger of Fiat Chrysler and French automaker Groupe PSA, is counting on Jeep to be a large part of its electrification growth. Jeep currently offers three plug-in hybrid electric vehicles outside the U.S., while the all-new Jeep wrangler 4xe is slowly making its way to American dealer lots throughout the spring (2021). These first few models mark the beginning of the automaker’s plans when it comes to electrification, according to Jeep CEO Christian Meunier. (more…)
