How was the award decided?

Four Wheeler's has a week-long testing regimen that includes a ramp travel index testing to gauge each vehicle's suspension articulation. Each vehicle is also track tested. The 0-60 acceleration and quarter-mile times are tested, as well as the 60-0 braking distance and the on and off-road evaluation on the mountains and the deserts of Southern California and Nevada. All vehicles are subject to various off-road conditions such as sand, rocky trails, loose-surface trails, rutted backroads, and loose dirt hill climbs. Nighttime driving is also taken into account to gauge the vehicle's lighting equipment.Β  In addition, the judges included various truck and 4x4 brands, which includedΒ  Four Wheeler, 4-Wheel & Off-Road, and Truck Trend. In everything tested, the Rubicon 392 was far and away the best!

What powers the Rubicon 392?

The Rubicon 392 is one of the most powerful and capable SUVs ever created, and it starts with what's under the hood. The first engine is a 6.4-liter V8 that pumps out a massive 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. This engine pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission and a Selec-Trac full-time active transfer case. With the V8 engine, the Rubicon 392 rockets from 0-60 in 4.5 seconds and can do a quarter-mile in 13 seconds or less. The performance of the 6.4-liter V8 is based on a cast-iron block and aluminum heads that are accented by the active intake manifold, variable camshaft timing, twin spark plugs per cylinder,Β  and sodium-filled exhaust valves. In addition, the Wrangler 392 engine is fitted with a rear-sump oil pan, a high-mount alternator, and free-flowing exhaust manifolds.

Drivetrain and Off-Road Capability of the Rubicon 392

The rear of the Rubicon 392's driveline is a Selec-Trac full-time, active transfer case with a spectacular 2.72 low-range gear ratio. With the transfer case, you get four selectable driver modes, including 4WD Auto, 4WD High, Neutral, and 4WD Low. This full-time two-speed transfer case allows drivers to set it and then forget about it as it sends the power to the front and rear wheels. As for off-roading, that's what the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 is known for, as it has Off-Road Plus with Sand and Rock modes. With a touch of a button, you can maximize the tractive capabilities as the modes adjust the throttle, transmission shift points, and traction control for peak performance on higher speed passes on sand terrain. With the Off-Road Plus mode, the driver can lock the rear axle at high speeds while in 4H. In addition, the Selec-Speed Control manages vehicle speed in 4L while traversing the off-road terrain without requiring throttle or brake input.

Xtreme Recon Package

With the Rubicon 392, Xtreme Recon Package will master your low-speed downhill descents by taking the 6.4-liter V8 engine's braking, revised transmission torque converter lockup control, and a 58.1 crawl ratio manages vehicle speed without the need to push down on the brake pedal. The Fuel Saver Technology comes with cylinder deactivation, which seamlessly shifts to smooth, high fuel economy four-cylinder mode when the engine loads are light, such as wheel you're cruising down the highway. Meanwhile,Β  a tank-mounted high-performance pump keeps the V8 fueled even in the most demanding situations. The 6.4-liter V8 engine always gets fresh air regardless of the terrain and weather, and this enables the Xtreme Recon Package to traverse water up to 33.6 inches deep at 5 mph worry-free, even in the most extreme situations.
