2017 Jeep Compass is the Activity Vehicle of Texas and the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is the Premium Utility Vehicle of Texas!

The Texas Auto Writers Association gave out their awards at their annual Texas Auto Roundup and one of the biggest winners by brand was Jeep.  The brand took home some of the highest honors of the evening including the all-new 2017 Jeep Compass which is already making a name for itself with auto critics.

“The Jeep brand vehicles also impressed our judges.  The 2017 Jeep Compass led the diverse Activity Vehicle category, offering excellent versatility, capability and Jeep’s go-anywhere styling…” said Nic Phillips, President of the Texas Auto Writers Association.

The 2017 Jeep Compass won the Activity Vehicle of Texas and the other major winner from Jeep was the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT.  It was voted the Premium Utility Vehicle winner.

Phillips continued, “…the Grand Cherokee SRT continues to demonstrate the incredible package of handling, power and segment value, worthy of our Performance Utility Vehicle award.”

The awards for the Jeep brand added with the major wins that the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid won meant that FCA US had the most awards of any other car maker at the annual competition.
