This Week In Trucks: Volume 47

Jeep Beach

Celebrating 20 years of Jeep Beach week — one of the biggest gatherings of enthusiasts in the U.S. attended by 200,000-plus annually — the nameplate is releasing an appropriately named Beach special edition.

Jeep Beach

Built on the High Tide model, it has the same hardware as Sport S trims with the Xtreme Recon Package like a 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, 35-inch BF Goodrich T/A KO2 tires, 1.5-inch factory suspension lift, and Sunrider Fliptop. Extras include special decaling and badging, embroidered Mopar Katzkin leather seats, shifter medallion, body-coloured fenders and more. Only 500 units are being sold.

Six exterior colours are available: Hydro Blue, High Velocity, Black, Bright White, Punk’n and Sting Gray. Orders open later this month.

2024 Jaguar F-PACE

Jaguar’s sporty SUV is set to receive a bunch of updates, with the p400e variant benefiting from the biggest upgrade.

2024 Jaguar F-Pace

The plug-in hybrid gets a bigger battery pack allowing the vehicle to travel approximately 65 kilometres using just electricity, which is a 20 per cent improvement compared to the previous 53 kilometre range.

In addition, all F-PACEs now feature a TFT Digital Driver Display replacing traditional gauges, and wheels start at 19-inches as standard. The Pivi Pro infotainment system is equipped across the lineup as well supporting Alexa voice control and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

Ford Bestseller

The mighty F-150 remains king of the hill after Ford announced the truck remains America’s bestseller for the 46th consecutive year.

2022 Ford F-150

There were over 640,000 sales of the popular F-Series pickup down south in 2022, from the zero-emissions Lightning to the hefty F-750.  The blue oval brand reports if all of them were lined up bumper-to-bumper, the line would stretch further than the driving distance between Los Angeles and Detroit.

In related news, 2023 also marks the 75th anniversary of F-Series.
