It probably comes as no surprise that, here at Blackburn Motor Company, we're big fans of FCA brand trucks and utility vehicles. So, you can imagine our excitement when we learned of the results of last week's Texas Truck Rodeo.

The two day event was hosted by the Texas Auto Writers Association at the famous Knibbe Ranch in Spring Branch, Texas. 69 association members scrutinized 88 trucks, SUVs, and crossover vehicles, testing their on- and off-road capabilities, and evaluating their style, utility, and overall value. FCA vehicles took home eight of the 24 available top awards.

“The Truck Rodeo was extremely competitive this year with a record number of media and vehicle entries, so it’s impressive that the FCA brands received top awards in numerous categories,” said Michael Marrs, president of TAWA.

Outpacing the competition: Just another reason to choose an FCA brand vehicle.
