The All-New Jeep® Wagoneer Is Making Its Debut

Jeep Wagoneer Debut | Spirit Lake, IA

The Jeep® Wagoneer is one of the most beloved nameplates in automotive history. The original was in production for 29 model years before it ended in 1991. Now, it’s making a comeback as an all-new Jeep® Wagoneer with an impressive body-frame design and plenty of room for the whole family.

The 2021 Jeep® Wagoneer will be a three-row SUV. You will be able to choose either the Wagoneer model or the more refined Grand Wagoneer model that will rival other luxury SUVs. The Grand Wagoneer model will have a longer wheelbase as well as more interior space for your family and cargo.

Jeep® has not officially released the trim lineup, but it is expected to be similar to the Grand Cherokee lineup. This means there will be a wide range of models, including budget-friendly options, premium options and off-road-focused trims.

Not only will it provide an incredible performance, but the Wagoneer will also offer some advanced technology options, perfect for any Iowa family. Expected technologies consist of a 10.25-inch touch-screen display along with a range of driver assistance features, like Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go. We at Motor Inn of Spirit Lake are excited for the return of this great full-size Jeep® SUV.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Earns Ninth Ideal Vehicle Award

Jeep Grand Cherokee | Spirit Lake, IA

For the ninth consecutive year, the Grand Cherokee has outclassed every other midsize SUV in the AutoPacific Ideal Vehicle Awards. 

Approximately 50,000 new vehicle owners who purchased their vehicle toward the end of 2018 were surveyed by AutoPacific at the beginning of 2019. People answer questions based on their own opinions of the vehicle after having driven it for at least 90 days, and the awards are allotted out based on customer satisfaction per the surveys.

AutoPacific president George Patterson had this to say about the awards: “The Ideal Vehicle Awards recognize vehicles that best meet their owner’s expectations and desires.”

The excellent Jeep® Grand Cherokee quality helps it fare so well in the AutoPacific competition; it is uniquely customizable with four available 4×4 systems and a host of other features suited to both driving on the road and off. Selec-Terrain traction management system is unique in its class and delivers an optimal driving experience across a multitude of terrains.

Receiving awards based solely on customer satisfaction is a huge honor for Jeep®, and Motor Inn of Spirit Lake is proud to continue to, as Patterson says, to sell vehicles that are “just right” for owners.
