Ram, Jeep and Dodge vehicles received eight top awards collectively at the annual Texas Truck Rodeo by the Texas Automotive Writers Association, to make FIAT Chrysler Automobiles the most-awarded manufacturer of the contest.
TAWA started the Texas Truck Rodeo competition in 1992 to create an automotive event that is distinctive to the state of Texas. The event took place in Dallas, San Antonio, Spring Branch, Granbury, Fort Worth, and Houston over the past several years. At the 2017 Texas Truck Rodeo, 64 pickups, crossovers, SUVs and commercial vehicles participated. 75 TAWA members joined the event and served as judges by voting after two days of evaluations.
The FIAT Chrysler Automobiles set of vehicles were able to stand out during the competition thanks to their great sets of features, trim options and technology. “Once again the Ram, Jeep and Dodge brands from FCA US impressed TAWA members with an exceptional lineup at the Texas Truck Rodeo,” said Nic Phillips, President of Texas Automotive Writers Association. Ram’s 2018 Ram 2500 Limited Tungsten topped the Heavy Duty Pickup Category while the 2018 Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn Southfork bagged the Luxury Pickup and the Highest Overall Interior Score honors.
Jeep earned top honors in three SUV categories: Subcompact, Mid-size and Off-road. The vehicles that came out on top were the 2017 Jeep Renegade, 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk and the 2017 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon, respectively. The Jeep Grand Cherokee won the award for its seventh consecutive year and the Jeep Wrangler won the award for the eighth year in a row. The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT dominated the competition in two categories: the Highest Overall Performance Score and the Full-size SUV.
