Jeep and Ram Trucks Have Great Showing at NWAPA’s “Mudfest”

With the 22nd annual Northwest Automotive Press Association’s (NWAPA) “Mudfest” come and gone, the only thing we’re left with is the winner’s circle. That’s just fine with us here at Royal Chrysler Jeep Dodge, because so many of our great Jeep brand vehicles were crowned winners of their respective segments, with the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition taking home the highest honor of “Northwest Outdoor Activity Vehicle of the Year.”

 

 

Aside from winning the overall title, the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition also won the segment of “Family Utility.” The other winner from the Jeep-brand family is the 2016 Jeep Wrangler 75th Anniversary Edition, which took home the crown in the “Extreme Capability” segment.

The “Mudfest” competition is stiff competition, with 28 vehicles from 21 different manufacturers in contention. The team of automotive journalists who judge the winners spent two days with the vehicles, one day doing on-road testing and a second day of off-road testing. The course this year was a little more difficult than in previous years, but nothing a Jeep brand vehicle couldn’t handle.

“For 2016 we made both our on- and off-road courses more challenging. The Ram Rebel, Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Grand Cherokee impressed our members with their ability to not only traverse any obstacle, but to do so with a unique sense of style and comfort. That’s why our members not only picked these three as best in their classes, but also selected the Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition as our Outdoor Activity Vehicle of the Year.” –Ryan Douthit, event chair and producer of Driving Sports TV

“Jeep and Ram build vehicles that know how to win and the NWAPA members agree after testing them in the Pacific Northwest. The company has a strong reputation for capability and they proved it with winning titles at this year's Mudfest.” –Nik Miles, president of NWAPA
