The Jeep® Gladiator was an exciting addition to the Jeep® lineup just last year. Now, the 2021 model is getting an exciting special edition, the Willys edition. This special model will come with increased off-road abilities and unique styling elements.
Visually setting the Gladiator pickup truck apart from the standard models is a large Willys hood decal, a “4 Wheel Drive” tailgate decal, and unique 17-inch wheels with a gray print. There are eight exterior color options to choose from including Snazzberry, Sarge Green, Firecracker Red, and Billet Silver Metallic.
Inside, the Gladiator Willys comes with either black or Heritage Tan and Black cloth seats. All-weather floor mats come standard to help protect the interior from the elements.
Powering the 2021 Jeep® Gladiator Willys edition is a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine rated at 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. It comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission and can tow up to 4,000 pounds.
While all Gladiator models are Trail Rated, the Willys edition has more off-road features. These include 32-inch BFGoodrich KM2 tires, a Trac-Lok Limited Slip Rear Differential, and Rubicon rock rails for extra protection. Like other Gladiator models, it also comes standard with four-wheel drive and a two-speed transfer case.
Experience this Trail Rated® legend for yourself. Drive home in a Gladiator from Motor Inn of Spirit Lake.
If you have dreamed of having a hands-free driving experience in your GMC truck, you will not have to wait much longer. General Motors has announced that the 2022 GMC Sierra Denali will be getting the advanced Super Cruise technology.
Super Cruise technology has been available within the General Motors brands for a few years now. When activated, it allows you to drive hands-free on more than 200,000 miles of limited-access freeways in the United States and Canada.
Super Cruise uses GPS, camera, and LiDAR map technology to monitor your surroundings. It looks for road markings to help you stay within your lane and works with adaptive cruise control for steering, braking, and accelerating.
While this might make you think you can take a snooze on your way to work, you still must pay attention to the road. The system uses driver-monitoring technology to make sure you stay alert and focused. If you look away from the road for too long, the system will alert you to put your hands back on the wheel.
If you are anxious to try out Super Cruise technology before 2022, it will be available on the all-new GMC Hummer EV later this year. Super Cruise sounds like the perfect addition to long family road trips and cruising around Iowa from Estherville to Knoxville.

Anyone passionate about off-roading or the iconic Jeep® Wrangler will be thrilled to hear that the brand recently revealed its most capable Wrangler ever. The new 2021 Jeep® Wrangler Rubicon 392 boasts 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque from a 6.4-liter V8 engine that combines off-road prowess with high-speed performance.
It’s been almost 40 years since the Wrangler was last offered with a V8 engine. With this powertrain under its hood, the 2021 Wrangler Rubicon 392 can hop from 0 to 60 in just 4.5 seconds, which makes it 40 percent quicker than a V6 Wrangler. The engine is also paired with a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission along with standard paddle shifters, which make for an engaging, responsive acceleration.
For the unpaved roads, the Wrangler Rubicon 392 comes ready with FOX high-performance shocks, a 2-inch factory lift, four-wheel drive, Dana 44 axles with Tru-Lok electronic locking differentials, and the ability to drive through water up to 32.5 inches deep.

As the end of 2020 approaches, it’s time to start thinking about your New Year’s resolutions. This time, why not focus on making resolutions related to your vehicle? These car-related New Year’s Resolutions will help you start 2021 the right way.
Remember routine maintenance
Sometimes, when life gets busy, it can be difficult to remember when your vehicle is due an oil change, tire rotation, or brake check. In 2021, make sure you don’t miss out on your vehicle’s regular service items.
Learn how to change a tire
You don’t want to get stuck on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere with a flat. So, why not learn how to change a tire? Doing so means you won’t have to wait for help when you find yourself stranded.
Learn how to jump-start a car. Dead batteries are a real hazard, especially during harsh Iowa winters. Help yourself and others by learning how to jump-start a vehicle.
Check your tire pressure regularly
Your tires are what keep you connected to the road, so it’s important to take care of them. This year, make sure you check your tire pressure regularly and that you keep track of your tires’ tread — after all, worn tires can decrease the amount of traction you have in inclement weather.
To make sure your vehicle runs smoothly throughout the coming year, contact our service department at Motor Inn of Spirit Lake to set up an appointment.
