Texas Auto Writers Association Honors Ram, Jeep, and Dodge

Every year the Texas Truck Rodeo is hosted by the Texas Automotive Writers Association. This year, Jeep, Ram, and Dodge vehicles were awarded some of the highest honors. If you tally all of the awards these three vehicle brands were awarded at the event they won the most out of every other manufacturer present. The Fiat Chrysler Automobile (FCA) brands offered an exceptional lineup and it really showed in the judge’s responses. We are honored to carry these brands here at Cassens and Sons Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, and while we aren’t in Texas, we appreciate what these awards stand for and are excited to have these vehicles in our showrooms!

What is the Texas Truck Rodeo?

The Texas Truck Rodeo is an automotive event that is unique to Texas and has been held annually since 1992. The Texas Truck Rodeo is not open to all vehicles. This year there was a total of 64 pickups, commercial vehicles, crossovers, and SUVs that 75 Texas Automotive Writer Association members were judging. The judges observed the vehicles performance both on and off-road over the course of two days. In the course of evaluating the 64 vehicles present, the judges also looked at the interior and exterior styling, as well as the vehicles overall utility, performance, and value.
