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