The Texas Auto Writers Association recently named the 2011 Dodge Journey the official Family Car of Texas. At Mission Chrysler Jeep Dodge - the premiere San Antonio, Texas Dodge dealership - they were not too surprised that the Journey won the honor.
The annual spring roundup took place at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth.
“Voters were impressed with the new 2011 Dodge Journey; it seems that the folks at Dodge have thought of everything to make traveling with the family an enjoyable experience,” said Michael Herzing, President – TAWA and publisher of LetsTalkWheels.com. “From the hidden storage under the front passenger seat cushion to the new Uconnect Touch multi-media center to the beautiful new interior and the impressive driving experience, the Dodge Journey wowed us with its performance and versatility.”
And as for Dodge, they are proud of the honor and are taking it seriously.
“The Dodge Journey will wear the 'Family Car of Texas' award like a badge of honor,” said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO, Dodge Brand. “The entire team at Dodge is thrilled that journalist and customers who get behind the wheel of the new Journey are experiencing the excellent driving experience and striking new interior that’s been a labor of love for our team.”
