Jeep is known for its legendary off-road vehicles that can conquer any terrain and weather. One of the most iconic models in Jeep's history was the Scrambler (CJ-8), which was launched in 1981 as the brand's first convertible, compact truck. Based on the CJ-7, the Scrambler had a longer wheelbase and a longer rear overhang for increased cargo space. It also had a sporty and adventurous appeal with bucket seats, a sports steering wheel, and racy detailing.
Now, Jeep has decided to revive the spirit of the Scrambler with a stunning concept vehicle that combines the classic looks of the original truck with the modern power and technology of the Wrangler Rubicon. The Jeep Scrambler 392 Concept is a one-of-a-kind vehicle that showcases Jeep's innovation and creativity in creating fun and functional vehicles.
The Jeep Scrambler 392 Concept started as a four-door Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, which was then modified to resemble the two-door Scrambler. The windshield was laid back 12 degrees, and the roof was lowered to give it a chopped-top hotrod look. The body panels were replaced with carbon fiber to reduce weight and improve performance. The hood features a tinted insert that reveals the 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine that powers the concept.
The HEMI V8 engine delivers 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, making the Jeep Scrambler 392 Concept one of the most powerful vehicles in the Jeep's history. The engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and a four-wheel drive system that offers various modes for different driving conditions. The concept also features an AccuAir air suspension kit that allows the driver to adjust the suspension lift from 1.5 inches to 5.5 inches on the fly.
