|The Texas Auto Writers recently named the 2010 Jeep Patriot the "Compact SUV of Texas" for its best-in-class capabilities.|
Voting after their annual Truck Rodeo in San Antonio, members of the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) named the 2010 Jeep® Patriot "Compact SUV of Texas," giving Jeep Patriot top honors over competitors in the compact SUV category.
"This is certainly an honor for Jeep," said Michael Manley, President and Chief Executive Officer - Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. "We're proud the Patriot proved its off-road prowess at the Texas Truck Rodeo. The Trail Rated® Jeep Patriot 4x4 is hands down the most capable and affordable SUV in the compact segment."
More than 40 TAWA members were given two days of on- and off-road evaluation time with the 2010 Jeep Patriot and its competitors.
Consideration is given to everything from exterior styling and off-road capability to the entrant's overall utility, value and fuel efficiency.
