Every year, the Northwest Automotive Press Association (NWAPA) hosts the “Mudfest” competition, which puts the most adventurous vehicles head-to-head for a day of friendly competition and fun. This year, Jeep® and Ram vehicles soared ahead of the competition and were honored with three top awards out of the six vehicle categories, surpassing other vehicles in their segments because of their exceptional off-roading capabilities.
To be named a “Mudfest” winner, a vehicle must go through two days of rigorous testing on paved and off-road paths. At the end the various trials, the 2018 Jeep® Wrangler was awarded the top spot in both the Compact and Mid-size Utility Vehicle category and the Extreme Capability category, while the 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel was declared the winner of the pickups category. The all-new 2018 Jeep® Wrangler took home an additional award, earning the title of “Northwest Outdoor Activity Vehicle of the Year.” The all-new Wrangler was praised by the President of NWAPA, who said “Jeep® has taken the Wrangler to the next level, adding safety, technology and on-road refinement to its unparalleled off-road prowess. NWAPA members were impressed by the Wrangler’s performance both on and off the road.”
Meanwhile, the Ram 1500 was celebrated for its “comfort and refinement,” boasting an interior that “rivals luxury cars” while still being able to perform any task set for it. This is not the first time that the exceptional interior of the 2019 Ram 1500 has been recognized, as it was named to WardsAuto’s 10 Best Interiors List for 2018.
