Earlier today, Jeep® introduced its two all-new special edition buzz models for its iconic Wrangler nameplate. The 2022 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited High Tide and Wrangler Jeep Beach models help celebrate the Jeep Beach event in Daytona Beach, Florida which coincides with the Moab Easter Jeep Safari.
For those who aren’t familiar with the Jeep Beach event, it is one of the largest Jeep vehicle events in the country. The Florida event attracts more than 200,000 people from all 50 states and 20,000 Jeep vehicles, every year. The event culminates with more than 3,500 Jeep vehicles driving on the beaches for the world-famous Jeep Beach Parade. The mission of Jeep Beach is to raise funds for local and national charities, with more than $2.5 million donated to date.
So let’s discuss the 2 new special edition buzz models…
