Lawrence, Kansas (PRWEB) October 27, 2011
Briggs Chrysler- one of the leading Jeep dealerships in Lawrence, Kansas, is very happy to announce that the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee has been named the “SUV of Texas” for the second consecutive year. The award is given by the Texas Auto Writers Association and was one of three captured by Jeep vehicles during the Texas Auto Writers Association Rodeo.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is the most-awarded SUV in history and represents what the Jeep brand goes out to accomplish. The 2012 Jeep Wrangler was awarded the “Mid-size SUV of Texas” and the Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Summit was named the “Luxury SUV of Texas.”
Chrysler and Jeep employees were very happy with the awards and are honored to be recognized by the TAWA.
“We are delighted that the influential journalists representing the Texas Auto Writers Association have once again recognized Jeep vehicles with several awards, and particularly the Jeep Grand Cherokee as the ‘SUV of Texas,’” said Mike Manley, President and CEO – Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “Winning this award last year started a string of Grand Cherokee accolades that made it the most-awarded SUV of all-time. More importantly, we know that these TAWA awards translate directly into sales. Through September of this year, Grand Cherokee sales are up 78 percent in the U.S. In the same time period in Texas, sales are up nearly 200 percent.”
Briggs Chrysler is very proud to be a part of the Jeep brand and is enthused about the recent awards. Briggs Chrysler has a large selection of new Jeep SUVs in Lawrence including the Grand Cherokee and Wrangler. They also feature used cars in Lawrence as well.
