Jeep has one of the most enthusiastic followings of any automotive brand. Not only do drivers of its vehicles make a point of waving to one another on the road, but they routinely gather in huge numbers for multi-day celebrations of their vehicles. Jeep Beach, a weeklong gathering in Daytona Beach, Fla., is among the largest of the events. Jeep will be celebrating this year’s party in April with two limited-production special editions, the 2024 Wrangler and Gladiator Jeep Beach.

For both models, the Jeep Beach upgrade includes orange and yellow Jeep Beach script on the hood, as well as matching stripes around the fender vents and matte-black hood decal. The Jeep Beach logo is also embroidered on the Mopar Katzkin leather seats. Both include a body-color hardtop with a headliner and the Sunrider cloth panel above the front seats, which occupants can quickly flip back for short-notice sunny days.

Gives Me the Willys

Jeep doesn’t otherwise offer the body-color hardtop on the Wrangler or Gladiator Willys trim, which these special editions are based upon. That means the Wrangler Jeep Beach (only available on the four-door model) rides on 33-inch tires, while the Gladiator rolls on 32s. Both are equipped with LED front lighting, steel rock rails and a locking rear differential. Standard tech features include a 12.3-inch touchscreen, adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning.

The Wrangler Jeep Beach gets the plug-in hybrid 4xe powertrain, which mates a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine to an electric motor and an eight-speed automatic transmission; it has a combined 375 horsepower and 470 pounds-feet of torque, as well as an EPA-estimated 22 miles of electric range. As the Gladiator isn’t available in 4xe form, the Jeep Beach with a bed (and standard spray-in bedliner) is motivated by a 3.6-liter V-6 making 285 hp and 260 pounds-feet.

Limited Quantities Available, Priced to Move

Jeep will begin taking orders for the Jeep Beach special editions in March in select southeastern states, which probably won’t mean buyers can take delivery before this year’s festival. The Wrangler Jeep Beach’s production will be limited to 500 units, while only 250 Gladiator Jeep Beach editions will be built. As buyers can apply the package to any available body color, it represents a solid opportunity to get unique equipment at a reasonable price. The 2024 Wrangler Jeep Beach will sticker at $62,290 and the Gladiator at $52,390 (prices include $1,895 destination).
