2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 | Spirit Lake, IA

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. Rubicon 392 also has a 48:1 crawl ratio which makes it great at tackling steep grades.

Whether you’re in Spirit Lake or Algona, Iowa, we recommend off-road enthusiasts stop by Motor Inn of Spirit Lake as soon as the Jeep® Wrangler Rubicon 392 hits the lot to check it out.

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.
