Jeep Pondering V8 Wrangler

Seems that Jeep is starting to look into the idea of making wranglers with 392 Hemi from the Challenger.

yES YES YES.... PLEASE JEEP BUILD THE V8 WRANGLER AND KEEP IT UNDER $40 GRAND

Hot off the tips wire: Jeep may be planning a Hemi 392-powered version of its legendary Wrangler.

The engine could be the same Hemi found in the Dodge Challenger SRT8 392. In that car, it produces 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, along with a suitably snarly, obnoxious exhaust note. No current production Wrangler is offered with a V8.

According to our well-placed and trustworthy tipster, a special Wrangler was built for Michael Manley, Jeep's current president and CEO. It was assembled by American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) in Montana, an aftermarket Jeep firm with strong ties to the industry and long history of Wrangler Hemi conversions. AEV has constructed concept vehicles and tested other ideas for Chrysler in the past. The Wrangler is rumored to have been built for executive evaluation, meaning we may be looking at an early iteration of a future model.

I also heard that they are putting a diesel in the US wrangler, and making a pick-up version, and bringing the J8 to US markets, and adding wings so it can fly at 30,000 feet.
