Earlier this month, Jeep® introduced two new buzz models for its iconic Wrangler. The 2022 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited High Tide and Beach models are virtually identical, however, one celebrates one of the biggest Jeep events in the United States. Both models offer an affordable way to get the new Xtreme Recon Package, without having to jump into the Willys trim.
The 2022 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited High Tide and Beach are based on the popular Sport S trim level. The package comes with the proven 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with eTorque mild-hybrid technology as its standard powerplant. The Pentastar with eTorque delivers 285 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque and adds low-end torque for impressive starting power for rock crawling or sand dune running. The Pentastar is mated to a quick-shifting and efficient 8-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission.

- Xtreme Recon Package –

Both models will be available in 5 exterior colors which include…
