The Rumors are truethe Jeep car High tide and Jeep car The beach versions are back in 2023. They are almost identical to last year’s modelalthough with some color and graphic differences. Jeep Beach also specifically called for the 20th anniversary of the event that gave it its name.
The High Tide is the starting point for both special models. It is based on Unlimited Wrangler Sport S with V6 engine and automatic transmission (the only powertrain available on these special editions), but comes with the Xtreme Recon Package. That adds fat 35-inch tires on top of 17-inch wheels that are grain-locking perfect for floating on soft sand. That package also includes a 1.5-inch suspension lift with matching shocks, a shorter 4.56 rear axle ratio, larger fenders, an upgraded and repositioned spare tire rack, and a piece buffer size. Exclusive to the High Tide is a body-colored hardtop with a flip-up front, special graphics, stone rails, rubber floor mats and LED lights.
Jeep Beach is built on the High Tide and will only have 500 units produced. They celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Jeep Beach event in Daytona Beach, Fl. Jeep says the event attracts 200,000 people and thousands of Jeeps and includes a parade on the beach. The special arranger features the Jeep Beach logo on the hood and spare tire mount, as well as embroidered Katzkin leather upholstery. It also features body-colored fender flares and commemorative gearshift medals.
Color options are different. In addition to last year’s Yellow, Black, Bright White and Sting Gray colors, Jeep has added Hydro Blue and Punk’n (orange, of course).
Both special models are available to order now. They will be delivered in April in time for the next Jeep Beach event. The High Tide version starts at $53,335 and the Jeep Beach version starts at $55,835.
