October 24, 2011 1:02 AM- Jeep® brand, the company that created the SUV segment — decades before anyone heard of the term — and its sibling Dodge, did a little Texas two-step around other SUV manufacturers this weekend during the annual Texas Auto Writers Association’s Texas Truck Rodeo.

The Detroit-built 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee (above) defended its SUV of Texas honor.

Jeep Grand Cherokee has once again demonstrated its superior levels of performance, quality, interior craftsmanship, and reliability that make it an award-winning SUV,” said TAWA President Mike Herzing. “Grand Cherokee is clearly the SUV of Texas.”

Also for the second year in a row, Toledo, Ohio-made 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (below) was named the Mid-size SUV of Texas.

New for 2011 is the TAWA Luxury of SUV of Texas award, won by the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Summit.

Not to be out-done by its siblings, the 2012 Dodge Durango (below), built at the same Detroit plant as the Grand Cherokee, earned an award:

“The 2012 Dodge Durango made quite an impression at this year’s TAWA Truck Rodeo,” Herzing said. “With its spacious and refined interior, impressive driving dynamics, and class-leading towing capability, it’s only fitting that the Dodge Durango is named the 2012 Full-Size SUV of Texas.”
