Other awards included the 2017 Nissan Armada being named the SUV of Texas and the 2017 Volvo XC90 being awarded as the CUV of Texas. TAWA journalists voted Ford Motor Co. as the 2017 Truck Line of Texas.

“We are honored to win the ‘Truck of Texas’ award as it underscores how the all-new 2017 Ford Super Duty lineup are the toughest, smartest and most capable trucks we’ve ever built,” said Doug Scott, Ford Truck group marketing manager.

Other 2017 award categories and winning vehicles included the Nissan Titan XD Single Cab, which was awarded best commercial vehicle; the RAM 1500, which was named the best luxury pickup truck; the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro, which was awarded best midsize pickup; and the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which was awarded for best mid-size SUV.

More than 70 Members of TAWA gathered in Dripping Springs, Texas, to evaluate more than 71 vehicles both on and off road in 17 categories over a two-day period.
