While we are currently in the thick of winter, it’s never a bad time to start thinking about the warm sand and crashing waves at the beach. That is the case with Jeep’s latest announcement, declaring the return of its Wrangler High Tide and Wrangler Jeep Beach special-edition models for the 2023 model year. The Jeep Wrangler Beach is also part of the 20th anniversary of “Jeep Beach Week” in Daytona Beach, Florida, one of the longest-running Jeep celebration events in the U.S.

“Jeep Beach week in Daytona Beach, Florida, is one of the biggest Jeep vehicle events in America, bringing in more than 200,000 Jeep fans and 20,000 Jeep SUVs in 2022 alone,” says Jeep Senior Vice President, Jim Morrison. “With the Wrangler High Tide and 20th anniversary Jeep Beach special editions, we get to celebrate our customers’ passion for beach-ready vehicles during this weeklong event.”
