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.
