IN the Reveal video, the head of Jeep stated half doors are available on 2021 Wrangler
Cooling and braking are big factors, probably quite a bit more than engine power. My old truck had a 7600 lb towing capacity with a 230HP/330ft lbs engine. The added weight for the 392 could eat up all the extra capacity of the brakes, and the cooling may be insufficient for heavy towing like the case of the diesel Gladiator. It all comes down to being limited by the weakest link. Considering the 3.8 Wranglers could tow the same as the more powerful 3.8, I doubt HP is the weak link.Look, I admit I don't understand how they rate tow capacity. I know that wheelbase helps stability but this monster Jeep has a reinforced frame, much larger engine, beefed up brakes, but no increase in tow capacity? So, three things I want to see published. MPG, price, tow capacity.
I'm all about choices. Seems to me when you are spending over (pick your number, but I think the number is around thirty grand) X you ought to have choices. And this isn't the typically WF give my 37's and Dana 60's but no carpet kind of thing. This is a don't add options that are stand alone on every other Wrangler.I don't care for the body colored hard top but I do like both safety groups. You have to get them under control but I like them a lot.
Dealer. It’s like the blind 4XE orderingWhere you hear this? Been trying to get an order/details in.
Yes. My guess is a 392 with 35” tires would likely be 13/18 MPG; premium fuel required.Fuel economy--trying an educated guess. I looked up a Durango V6 vs Durango SRT, which have city 19/13, highway 26/19, and combined 22/15 fuel economies, respectively. In a way this shows what the 392 drinks versus the Pentastar. So if you take the 4 door Rubicon's milage and do the same decrements, you end up with 392 Wrangler potentially being 11 city 16 highway, and 12 combined. Add armor, bumpers, winch, bigger tires, recovery gear (which ignores people, coolers, personal gear) and those MPGs could fall by another couple mpg. And your likely not going to get the advertised highway mpg if you live out west in the land of 85 mph interstate speed limits. So potential worse case scenario is the 16 highway goes to 13 (weigh + speed) and that's kind of a bummer. (Not from an environmental nor cost perspective, which would also be true, but from a range perspective.)
