Jeep and Ram Vehicles won big at this year at the 24th annual “Mudfest” competition, hosted by the Northwest Automotive Press Association (NWAPA). Three of the six vehicle categories were taken by Jeep and Ram vehicles. The 2018 Jeep Wrangler even took home the top honor of being voted “Northwest Outdoor Activity of the Year.”
In addition to taking home the main title, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler also won 1st place in the Compact and Mid-size utility class and Extreme Capability class. President of NWAPA John Vincent said: “Jeep has taken the Wrangler to a new 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.”
The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 also did very well at this year’s event, with the Rebel model taking home the #1 spot in the pickups category. “The 2019 Ram 1500 once again raises the bar for full-size pickup comfort and refinement. It features a cabin that rivals luxury cars, and capability to do any work that it is asked.”
At the “Mudfest” event you’ll find over 25 NWAPA automotive journalists testing vehicles both on and off of the road over the course of two days. It takes place at The Ridge Motorsports Park in Shelton, Washington. At the end of the event, the judges select the vehicles they think are the best fit for their six awards, and this year Jeep and Ram won the majority of the awards.
Mike Manley, Head of Jeep and Ram Brands commented: “The Jeep Wrangler and the Ram 1500 Rebel have well-earned reputations for capability. Winning a head-to-head third-party off-road comparison test, such as Mudfest, is clearly yet another strong endorsement for the Jeep and Ram brands.”
Thr 2018 Jeep Wrangler offers unparalleled capability for off-roading with its legendary four wheel drive system, body-on-frame design, solid axles, electronic lockers, and front and rear five-link suspension system. The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 offers a different kind of on and off-road capability. It features a locking rear differential, new Bilstein shocks, hill-descent control, and a hefty towing capability.
