The competition spanned two days. Members of the Phoenix area media, including PAPA, viewed, evaluated and test drove vehicles on the first day, and then more than 100 athletes and outdoor enthusiasts did the same on the second day. The two awards the Jeep Grand Cherokee received were the Inaugural Phoenix Automotive Press Association (PAPA) Best of the Southwest award and the Active Lifestyle Vehicle Luxury Off-Road award.

“The Jeep Grand Cherokee ticked all the boxes for our PAPA panel of automotive journalists as a durable go-anywhere vehicle with plenty of room for people and gear,” said Bob Golfen, automotive journalist and PAPA member. “PAPA jurors also were impressed by the Jeep’s premium interior and superior drivability, which make it an ideal all-around SUV for daily driving and vacation fun.”

“With its fuel-efficient EcoDiesel engine, the Jeep Grand Cherokee has the off-road capability and range to venture far off the grid, while maintaining the appealing style, comfort and convenience features that buyers in this segment demand,” said Nina Russin, ALV co-founder. “As such, the Grand Cherokee can keep up with the demanding lifestyles of elite and recreational athletes who need a daily commuter during the week, but a highly off-road capable vehicle for the weekend.”
