2023 Jeep Wrangler High Tide Reminds Us Warmer Times Are Ahead

Posted at Fri, Dec 30, 2022 4:30 PM

As we are encountering a few of the shortest days of the year here at Landmark Dodge of Morrow, the Jeep brand has heartily decided to remind us that days of sunshine and sand DO exist! The official announcement with the details about the Wrangler High Tide model was released this past week, giving some of us with ice on our windshields positive glimmers of hope. It is based on the Sport S model and is powered by the 3.6-liter Pentastar engine, paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission.

To navigate the scenic and challenging vacation destination that everyone is now craving, the High Tide comes properly equipped with the Xtreme Recon Package. This brings 35-inch BF Goodrich tires, 17-by-8-inch beadlock capable wheels, a 4.56 rear axle ratio, and the useful 1.5-inch factory lift to the proverbial (and hopefully picnic themed!) table. This model is also prepped for the abrupt pitfalls of off-roading courtesy of hinge-gate reinforcements, a jack spacer, a tire relocation kit, and wheel flare extensions. 

You’ll also be cruising on rocks, sand, and surf with the assistance of a body-color hardtop, a Sunrider fliptop, LED headlights and fog lights, rock rails, sand/slush mats, and High Tide hood decals. It will feel fantastic to be the stylish center of fresh air seeking attention with special touches such as a Jeep Beach hood decal, Katzkin leather seats, body-color fenders, a Jeep Beach 20th Anniversary shifter medallion, and a Jeep Beach swing gate plaque. 

There will be just 500 of these examples that are begging for the fun of flip-flop wearing season, along with six colors available to choose from. We especially love the Hydro Blue, and High Velocity, Black, Bright White, Punk’n and Sting Gray are standing by adventurously poised and ready for the volleyball or boogie boarding crew. The Jeep Beach Week in Daytona Beach, Florida is one of the biggest Jeep vehicle events in the nation, bringing in more than 200,000 Jeep fans and 20,000 Jeep SUVs over the past year. 

We know you’re going to love everything about the vehicle that Kelley Blue Book praised for its “excellent off-road capability, iconic styling, and user-friendly tech”, with its amiable demeanor and military-inspired persona. One of the truly most recognizable vehicles on the road, it possesses some excellent “creature comforts”, and a well-stanced and equipped form of competition against the rival in the form of the Ford Bronco. The 2023 Wrangler does not drive like an everyday SUV from this era, and It is due to the well-crafted body-on-frame construction. 

If any new driver feels that the Wrangler is a bit lacking in a perfectly refined road drive, it more than makes up for with its off-road chops. No matter which setup is just right for you, you’ll be full-on winning during trail navigation with a generous ride height, well-designed approach and departure angles, and the necessity of 4-wheel drive as standard. The Rubicon model has an extra off-road look with 33-inch tires, taller wheel flares, and red tow hooks.
