Last month, the Northwest Automotive Press Association (NWAPA) held their 24th annual “Mudfest,” and one model was a clear standout at the event. Winning a full third of the sub-categories, as well as taking home top honors, the 2018 Jeep® Wrangler certainly impressed! The NWAPA Mudfest is a direct comparison of the off-road chops of a variety of models. Over 25 NWAPA journalists convene for the two day event testing models on and off the road. 26 different models were part of the competition, with only six winners in their respective categories.

After two days of testing, it was clear to the judges that the 2018 Jeep Wrangler is something impressive. The powerful SUV won two of the six categories, taking the top spot in the Compact and Mid-size Utility segment, as well as the Extreme Capability category. But that wasn’t all – in addition to the winners in each category, the NWAPA judges also select the best of the best to be named the “Northwest Outdoor Activity Vehicle of the Year,” the top honor at Mudfest. After winning a third of the categories, it’s no surprise that the NWAPA judges selected the 2018 Jeep Wrangler for this highest prize. The judges commended not only its “unparalleled off-road prowess” but its new safety and technology features, as well as its on-road performance.

You don’t have to live in the Northwest to appreciate the capabilities and freedom that come with the 2018 Jeep Wrangler – or any other Jeep model, from a brand new 2018 Jeep Compass to a used Jeep Cherokee. Branford, Milford, and other North Haven, CT drivers deserve the best for whatever adventures they have planned.
