The Jordan 192 was a Formula One car designed by Gary Anderson for the Jordan Grand Prix team for the 1992 Formula One season. The number 32 seat was taken by Stefano Modena and the number 33 seat was taken by Maurício Gugelmin, both new to the team.

After a somewhat successful 1991 debut season the team had lost their supply of Ford engines due to large debts. Instead Jordan signed a contract to run the Yamaha OX99 3.5L V12, which was supplied for free. One of the problems was that the team had already begun work on the 192 in the expectation that it would continue to run the Ford V8 engine rather than a much larger V12 Yamaha. The team's new main sponsor was Sasol, replacing 7UP.

Compared to their successful debut season, 1992 was a total catastrophe for Jordan. The team struggled badly with reliability issues (in particular overheating), with Gugelmin retiring from seven of the first nine races and Modena failing to finish a race until the twelfth race of the season at Spa. Modena also failed to qualify four times in a car that was significantly slower than its predecessor. The team failed to score a point until the final race of the season in Australia, when Modena finished 6th. Jordan eventually finished 11th in the Constructors' Championship, with 1 point.

The 192 was replaced by the Hart V10-powered Jordan 193.
