Jeep® and Ram Dominate at the Annual “Mudfest” Competition

July 24th, 2018 by

Both the Jeep® and Ram were top award-winners during this year’s annual Northwest Automotive Press Association Mudfest competition. Neither of these brands is a stranger to winning awards. The big news is that the 2018 Jeep® Wrangler wins the award for the Northwest Outdoor Activity Vehicle of the Year. We are excited to carry both of these stunning models here at Covert Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, and invite you in to test drive today!

What Other Awards did Jeep and Ram Pull In?

In addition to the prestigious title, the 2018 Jeep® Wrangler also won the accolades from the Mid-Size Utility Vehicle plus the Extreme Capability and Compact category. Maybe it has something to do with the expanded interior that offers passengers more room. It might also have to do with the updated technology that the brand included. With the newest upgrades, the Wrangler has never been more fun to take off the road, and more enjoyable to drive down the road.

The other big win was for the 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel which received the top honor in the Pickups category. This newly redesigned truck now features a luxurious cabin with the power to take on your toughest jobs.

What’s the Criteria Behind the Award

We anticipate both of these brands winning numerous other awards throughout the year. There were three more up for grabs: the Subcompact, Family, and Premium Utility titles, but neither of these fit into those categories.

There were 26 automobiles judged from 16 manufacturers, so the competition was stiff. Without any hesitation, our favorite brands left the others in the mud, so we anticipate more of that to come. If they can beat them off the road, just imagine what’s going to happen on the road!
