8.0/10

If power and performance are your topmost priorities in an adventure SUV, then the Wrangler Rubicon 392 won’t disappoint you a bit. With a gigantic 6.4 L naturally aspirated Hemi V8, the Rubicon 392 remains true to its name and delivers only the best of what Jeep has on offer. The Hemi V8 is a serious powertrain unit that helps the Wrangler accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 4.5 seconds, which is stupid fast for an adventure SUV that weighs a great deal and has extreme off-road capabilities. The Hemi V8 puts out an impressive 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft. of torque that helps the Wrangler get through most of the terrains and obstacles that come its way like it's a cakewalk.

The Hemi V8 and the incredible transmission system and drivetrain make the Wrangler Rubicon 392 a capable machine everywhere you take it.

Compared to its rivals, the Wrangler Rubicon 392 might seem to be on the pricier side in its segment. But considering the fact that it gets the largest powertrain unit in its class that helps it dynamically improve its capabilities, the Rubicon 392 seems to be a true gem in the segment and a favorite amongst a great number of off-road enthusiasts. The Land Rover Defender XS Edition is the closest rival to the Wrangler Rubicon 392 when it comes to price, power, and off-road capabilities.

2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 SUV Fuel Economy

6.0/10

Compared to its rivals with hybrid or turbocharged powertrains, the 2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 isn’t the most fuel-efficient due to its massive naturally aspirated Hemi V8. The Wrangler Rubicon 392 delivers a combined fuel economy of 14 miles per gallon, which is undoubtedly the lowest fuel economy figure in its class. It returns 13 and 17 MPG in the city and highway driving conditions, respectively. With a 21.5-gallon tank capacity, the Rubicon 392 isn’t able to offer a good fuel range as well. The combined fuel range turns out to be a meager 301 miles, which seems to be way less compared to what some of its rivals have on offer.

The Land Rover Defender XS Edition gets the best fuel economy figures in the segment, thanks to its turbocharged engine with a hybrid assist system that helps it achieve a combined fuel economy of 19 MPG and a combined fuel range of 452.2 miles. The Ford Bronco manages to offer the same combined economy as the Defender, whereas the Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro stands quietly between the Bronco and Wrangler with a combined mileage of just 17 mpg.

2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 SUV Interior

7.0/10

The 2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 doesn’t get any major updates from Jeep compared to its previous model year version. The interior design and features turn out to be the same with rugged design elements and enough room for 5. The dashboard design layout is rugged with a hard plastic surface that lets you know that the Jeep Wrangler isn’t any ordinary SUV but a lifestyle vehicle that helps you dwell in off-road environments as long as you want to. The circular HVAC vents and the flat dashboard setup all have been signature elements of the Jeep Wrangler for many years. The list of interior features seems pretty eccentric for an SUV that costs more than $75,000 as there are features like illuminated cup holders and heated steering wheel with leather upholstery, but at the same time, the front seats get manual adjustability and lumbar support.

The front seats are clad in leather upholstery and are 6-way manually adjustable seats. The front seats offer an adequate amount of room and are comfortable. The climate control unit is a voice-activated dual-zone automatic climate control unit. The second-row seats don’t offer the best space in the segment and feel cramped when compared to the Wrangler’s rivals. The trunk space too isn’t the best in its class. In an SUV of this caliber, you might expect a bit more trunk capacity especially due to the fact that the Wrangler is an off-road friendly SUV designed with exploration as its objective. Its trunk capacity of 27.7 cubic feet seems to be less than what the rest of the SUVs in its class have on offer. It has a maximum trunk capacity of 67.4 cubic feet, while the rest of the SUVs in the segment offer more than 70 cubic feet of space.

SUVs like the Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro as well as the Ford Bronco First Edition Advanced provide a much larger trunk capacity with the maximum trunk volume nearing the 80 cubic feet mark and above. The Land Rover Defender 110’s interior, on the other hand, feels much more premium and futuristic when compared to the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392. All the SUVs in the competition offer a standard seating capacity of just 5 people. Some of the standout interior features are:

  • Voice Activated Dual-Zone Automatic climate controls
  • Leather upholstery
  • Full-black interior
  • Heated leather steering wheel
  • Heated front seats

What’s there to keep you entertained?

Talking about the infotainment system, the Wrangler Rubicon 392 gets the best of infotainment features from Jeep. It gets the latest and updated Uconnect infotainment system with an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment display unit. The audio system consists of a 552w Premium Alpine audio system with 9 speakers and SiriusXM Satellite. Connectivity features include Bluetooth audio and phone connectivity, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, 4G internet access WiFi hotspot as standard too.

2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 SUV Exterior

7.0/10

When it comes to exterior design and styling, the Jeep Wrangler has always been one of the easiest SUVs to be recognized on the streets with its tough utilitarian looks and exterior elements. The Jeep design DNA is reflected through every bit and piece on the exterior that includes the grille, round headlamps, massive bumpers, wheel arches, and the rear door with a spare wheel. The design might seem a bit old and definitely feels like it needs an update, but the components used on the outside are of the best quality and use some of the latest tech.

The wheels that come standard with the Wrangler Rubicon 392 are 17-inch wheels with beadlocks. The 37-inch wraparound tires fit snugly around the wheels and offer the best off-road capability in the segment without a doubt. With the Wrangler Rubicon 392, the customizable options that come with it are endless. The manual convertible rooftop along with the Rubicon Rock Rails, Steel bumpers with a Warn winch, and steel belly pan convey that the Wrangler Rubicon can hit rough terrains all day without a second thought. The auto on/off LED headlamps and the LED tail lamps along with the front LED daytime running lights add some flair to the rough external styling as well.

2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 SUV Safety

6.0/10

The 2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 hasn’t been tested by agencies like the NHTSA or IIHS for safety, but considering the fact that the Wrangler Rubicon 392 is one of Jeep’s most coveted SUVs in their fleet and the fact that it is designed to dwell in the wilderness, it is probably going to be one of the safest SUVs on the road without a doubt.

2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 vs. 2022 Land Rover Defender 110 XS Edition

The 2022 Land Rover Defender 110 XS Edition is truly one of the toughest competitors to the Wrangler Rubicon 392 as it is cheaper and brings in a ton of sophisticated off-road aids and other features that provide great off-road capability. The Defender is truly one of Land Rover’s best SUVs in the market today and outperforms the Wrangler Rubicon 392 with its hybrid powertrain and top-of-the-line off-road assist features that just make sense.

2022 Land Rover Defender 110 XS Edition

2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 vs. 2021 Ford Bronco First Edition Advanced

The Ford Bronco is definitely one of those SUVs that is frequently compared with the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon due to its similar off-road capabilities and utility quotient. The Ford Bronco proves to be a cheaper option compared to the Jeep, but the Jeep comes with a very attractive powertrain unit with its Hemi V8. However, if the rumors are true and we do get a V8 Bronco for 2022, things will get interesting, to say the least.

2021 Ford Bronco First Edition Advanced

2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 vs. 2021 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro

The Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro might not have the off-road capabilities that match the Wrangler Rubicon 392, but it definitely proves to be more reliable and has tons of space inside to pack your stuff as you leave to explore on your weekends. The 4Runner also proves to be cheaper than the Wrangler Rubicon 392 by a good margin, which is also an advantage on its side. While the TRD Pro has its fair share of capabilities to handle off-road terrain, it can't compete with what Jeep offers with the 2022 Rubicon 392.

2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 SUV Final Verdict

The 2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 isn’t any normal SUV that you would find on the road. It is a lifestyle SUV that is best suited for those who have serious off-road and exploration aspirations and need the right companion to go through any terrain that may come. The Wrangler Rubicon 392 sure is an expensive SUV, but it gets the right kit with it to make you feel like you are living your life to the fullest out there on the off-road terrains, and that is exactly its greatest attribute.
