At this moment? Absolutely. I personally don't think Jeep will bring a mass-produced V8 to market but they might do a loaded special edition people will pay upwards of $80k or more for.A V8 Wrangler / Gladiator is hypothetical correct? What is... Unless the Jeep brand is bought out I don't see it ever having the engineering to be best in the V8 truck or SUV market. Nothing in the FCA parts bin is exciting or cutting edge.
I hope to be pleasantly surprised but where Ford has the advantage is the tiers of proven engine options with several years in production. Toyota has the 3.5L, 4.6L, and 5.7L. Jeep has the 3.6L and the 5.7L... even ignoring the 3.3L that has the same numbers as the Pentastar, Ford has the 2.3L, 2.7L, 3.5L, and 5.0L they can lean on and all are built light enough to be a standard-issue mid-size truck engine. I don't see Jeep making the 5.7L that standard option any more than I expect Toyota to drop the 4.6L in the 4Runner again.
