The Northwest Automotive Press Association (NWAPA) recently hosted its 23rd annual ‘Mudfest’ competition. Think of it sort of like a Tough Mudder marathon for off-road vehicles. Twenty-eight NWAPA auto journalists were tasked with evaluating twenty-seven vehicles in a series of courses. Among the vehicles tested were the all-new Jeep Compass and the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk. Both vehicles took home awards in their respective classes. The Jeep Compass was the winner of the Compact Utility Vehicle category, and the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk took the award in the Premium Utility Vehicle segment. 

In response to the awards, Mike Manley, the Head of Jeep Brand, stated “This marks further recognition for Grand Cherokee – the most awarded SUV ever – while Compass earns high praise just as it arrives in Jeep showrooms across the country. We’re equally delighted that consumers are now enjoying the unmatched Compass capability that impressed the NWAPA members.”
