Jeep announces Safari; new Jeep Beach series

As Jeep prepares for the 58th Easter Safari at Moab, where it launches new concepts and new performance parts, the marque is also launching new “Jeep Beach” models. These are partly an incentive for customers to move up to the 4xe system, which provides 21 miles of electric range at 49 MPGe; they can also be used as standard hybrids, providing V8 power with V6 mileage.

2024 Wrangler and Gladiator Jeep Beach models

The Wrangler Beach 4xe and Gladiator Jeep Beach come with a body color hardtop; the hardtop includes a headliner. They also have a Sunrider Fliptop, Katzkin leather seats, and decals. Both models celebrate Jeep Beach 2024 in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Standard equipment also includes the 12-inch center screen, LED headlamps and fog lamps, adaptive cruise with forward collision warning, steel rock rails, locking rear differential, Off-Road+ mode, and towing and programmable auxiliary switches. The Wrangler has 33-inch all terrain tires, and the Gladiator has 32-inch mud-terrain tires and spray-in bedliner.

Only 500 Wranglers will be made, to be sold solely in “select southeastern states,” with a list price of $60,395 plus around $1,900 for shipping; they are based on the Willys 4xe.  The Gladiator is based on the Willys, without 4xe, and only 250 will be made, priced at $50,495 plus shipping. Both will be available later this month with a full range of colors. So far there is no Willys 4xe model; observers believe this is because of cooling issues, especially given the Gladiator’s higher tow rating. A 4xe Gladiator has been promised for the future.
