The Jeep brand of Stellantis in Auburn Hills has decided to continue producing and selling the Wrangler 392 Final Edition into the 2025 model year. It was previously announced that 2024 would be the vehicle’s last year.

“When news broke in March that Jeep Wrangler 392 was roaring off into the sunset, the comments, coverage, and conversation showed us that the Jeep community isn’t quite ready to say goodbye to the V-8-powered Wrangler,” says Bill Peffer, senior vice president and head of Jeep brand North America. “Jeep brand listened and will continue the 392 Final Edition into the 2025 model year.”

The move may be in part to slow sales of EVs, as prospective consumers weigh higher vehicle and insurance costs, a lack of public chargers, range anxiety, falling resale values, battery replacement costs, and steep repair costs as well as typically long repair times.

The 2025 Jeep Wrangler 392, the quickest and most powerful Wrangler yet, according to Jeep, is equipped with a 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 delivering 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. It goes 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds and covers the quarter mile in 13 seconds.

The 2025 Jeep Wrangler 392 Final Edition will continue to offer much of the standard equipment found on the 2024 392 Final Edition, including:

  • Exclusive hood and fender vent decals
  • Black Nappa leather-trimmed seats
  • Specially monogrammed shifter medallion and swing gate plaque
  • Standard 8,000-pound-capacity Warn winch
  • Half-inch suspension lift
  • Heavy-duty rock sliders
  • Mopar fold-out swing gate table
  • Standard Xtreme 35 Package with bronze 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels and 35-inch BFGoodrich all-terrain tires
  • The Mopar triple loop grille guard and Mopar Jeep 83-piece toolkit will remain exclusive to 2024 model-year 392 Final Edition vehicles.

Production of 2025 Jeep Wrangler 392 will begin in Q1 2025 with orders opening later this year.

In Related News: SUSTAINera, Stellantis’ business focused on circular economy initiatives, says it’s making progresses on its efforts to revamp its consumption model, grow its presence in recycling, and expanding participation in material sourcing limiting the impact on natural resources.

“Since the introduction of SUSTAINera in 2022, we achieved very positive results in areas such as parts remanufacturing, battery recycling, and end-of-life vehicles,” says Alison Jones, senior vice president of Stellantis’ global circular economy, who delivered a keynote presentation at International Automotive Recycling Congress (IARC), in Antwerp, Belgium. “We remain committed to our target to increase recycling revenues by 10 times and achieve more than $2.15 billion in total circular economy revenues by 2030 — fully in line with Stellantis’ Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan.”

Some of the results from the circular economy unit include:

Valorauto, the vehicle end-of-life solution in France, Belgium and Luxembourg, enables the collection of the vehicle, its dismantling, and the recovery of parts to be reused or to be remanufactured, including electric-vehicle batteries or repurposing them in second life projects as energy storage. What remains can be recycled.

Alloy wheels recycling in North America. Stellantis has already set up a recycling channel for alloy wheels in the North American market with its partner Real Alloy. End-of-life wheels are collected directly from dealers, then melted to be used as secondary raw aluminum to manufacture new engine or transmission components at its casting plant in Kokomo, Ind.

At the IARC, SUSTAINera launched its first range of recycled products to complete the 4R offer (Remanufactured, Repaired, Reused, Recycled parts) in the parts and services category.

The first two products in this range are a windshield washer fluid made of 100 percent regenerated alcohol from recycled industrial solvents, and a cooling fluid made with mono ethylene glycol base 100 percent recycled from industrial production waste: free of nitrates, borates, and amines, with no silicates.

Jones also recalled the memorandum of understanding Stellantis signed with Orano for a joint venture to manage end-of-life electric-vehicle batteries and scrap from gigafactories in both Europe and North America.

It strengthens Stellantis’ position in the electric-vehicle battery value chain by securing additional access to cobalt, nickel, and lithium necessary for electrification and energy transition, helping to meet the European Union (EU) 2031 battery directive to use recycled materials in new batteries. This partnership is among the industry’s first wave of undertakings to support a global circular economy approach to manufacturing and consumption.
