In February, Jeep® introduced two new buzz models for its iconic Wrangler Unlimited model: High-Tide and Beach. Virtually identical, one celebrates one of the biggest Jeep events in the United States while the other offers an affordable way to get the Xtreme Recon Package, without having to go for the Willys trim. With the Jeep Beach event in the book, the focus begins on the High Tide offering.
Based on the popular Sport S trim, the 2022 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited High Tide comes standard with the proven 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with eTorque mild-hybrid technology. 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.
Both the High Tide limited edition includes the following equipment…
- Xtreme Recon Package –

There are five exterior colors to choose from, Black, Bright White, Hydro Blue, Sting-Gray, and the new High-Velocity Yellow.
