2012 Jeep Dealer IA
2012 Jeep Wrangler IA
With a terrific new powertrain, the Wrangler has fully arrived. It’s win-win with improvements to comfort, handing, power, smoothness and fuel economy, while no loss to mind-blowing off-roadability with the Rubicon. Wrangler Unlimited, the world’s only four-door 4×4 convertible, delivers a smooth ride and secure handling. Soft top or hard top, nice new colors. We recommend the Unlimited for families; off-road capability is nearly the same. Singles and couples might want to go for the traditional two-door, however.
The 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4×4 offers the ultimate in capability without compromise. Unlimited has room for five and provides all the versatility and cargo capacity you need for your next adventure. Sahara and Rubicon get an available body-color Freedom Top® hardtop for a coordinated, put-together look.
Pretty new colors for 2012 are Dozer Yellow (nice blend of Corvette Yellow and Porsche Mustard, and a favorite for pilots in search planes), Deep Molten Red, and Crush Orange (another search party favorite). Our Rubicon was Cosmos Blue, like French Racing Blue, a color that almost brings grace to the ol’ Jeep. Standard colors are available for those who want to blend into the environment, whether suburban or bucolic. See our New Jeep Wranlger Inventory IA today!
2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Des Moines
The Jeep Grand Cherokee boasts a capable chassis, comfortable interior that’s utility useful or fashion friendly, competitive powertrains. It offers the off-road capability that mid-size SUVs should offer. It offers serious towing capability. The new SRT8 puts the Germans on notice that there are super-ute alternatives, and this one costs a lot less. We were particularly impressed with Laredo with a V6 and think it offers the best value proposition.
Grand Cherokee hits the sweet spot of premium on-road performance and legendary class-leading Jeep® vehicle capability. The strong Uni-Frame construction with ultra-high-strength steel, torsional stiffness, premium insulation materials and front and rear independent suspensions with isolated cradles come together to deliver a controlled and quietly luxurious ride.
Though heavy, the chassis is quite rigid, one key to the feel of overall quality. When you combine a rigid chassis with a well-executed independent suspension, the result is a vehicle that feels like a Mercedes. In fact, design of the Grand Cherokee began in Germany years ago, when Chrysler was still Daimler-Chrysler, and some components are shared with the Mercedes M-Class SUV.

Iowa 2012 Jeep Compass
Compass features soft-touch points for added comfort. There’s also a high-level of standard refinement including: air conditioning, Remote keyless and illuminated entry, LED illuminated cup holders, cruise control, bright trim, power windows, mirrors, and locks. As an added available convenience, the steering wheel includes fingertip control of audio and handsfree phone.
The Jeep Compass cabin is roomy and comfortable. The front bucket seats are very comfortable without being soft. The Sport is available with Jeep’s stain repellant upholstery, a rugged fabric that’s stain, odor and static resistant. The front seat jacks upward, which is nice because the long dash makes it hard to see the ground in front of the car, even though the hood is short. The long dash is a result of the sloped windshield.
Compass boasts an adventurous and eye-catching array of standard and available wheels. Compass offers exceptional ride and handling performance in all-weather conditions with its steering and suspension system. Browse our New Jeep Compass Inventory in IA Today!
West Valley 2012 Jeep Liberty
The Jeep Liberty has better off-road capability and more towing capacity than most of its competitors. It offers generous cargo space and a high seating position. But it’s heavy for a compact SUV, and it lacks the handling and fuel economy of most of its rivals. If off-road capability is important, the Liberty is a good choice; otherwise several rivals will handle better and go easier on gas.
Liberty’s subtle combination of fluid forms and high-tech functionality makes every ride worth taking. Add some sophistication with an available leather-wrapped steering wheel. All models feature steering wheel-mounted audio controls.
The Liberty rides firmly, but irons out most bumps quite well and is stable on the highway. The Liberty sacrifices on-road handling for off-road prowess. The Liberty leans in turns and has a floppy feeling in quick changes of direction. Still, it’s rugged and capable off road; if we were heading up a rough logging road, we’d be pleased to be in a Liberty. Inside, the Liberty has plenty of room for five. However, we view it as not quite up to expectations in terms of materials quality and fit and finish, with a lot of hard-plastic surfaces. Still, it’s not an unpleasant cockpit. Cargo room is a plus. The Liberty’s second-row seats fold flat, as does the front passenger seat, to provide plenty of room for hauling boxes, bikes and life’s other accessories.

2012 Jeep Patriot IA
The Jeep Patriot is unmistakably from the Jeep garage, with its squared-off lines, seven-slot grille, and round headlights. The Patriot and its sibling, the Jeep Compass, are based on a car platform, but still deliver moderate off-road ability. The four-door Patriot has plenty of room inside. There’s adult-size headroom and legroom for rear-seat passengers. The 60/40-split rear seat folds flat, and a flat-folding front passenger seat is optional; with all the seats flat, you can slide an eight-foot kayak inside, for example.
Patriot features an interior with soft-touch points for added comfort.Tasteful Chrome accents along with a stylish hand-stiched, available leather-wrapped steering wheel speak to the vehicle’s proud craftsmanship. On the technology front, Patriot includes an available Media Center 430N radio with Navigation by Garmin® and available Uconnect™ Voice Command. The available SiriusXM Travel Link™ features real-time gas prices, weather radar map, sports, traffic and movie schedules.
The Jeep Patriot offers off-highway capability in a compact SUV with a capable four-cylinder engine that gets decent fuel economy. The suspension is stable and comfortable, and cargo capacity is useful because all the passenger seats can easily fold flat. The interior updates for the Jeep Patrio have improved the cabin greatly.
