Each year, the Texas Auto Roundup—held under the auspices of the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA)—provides a unique look at the country’s top vehicles, while also unleashing a stampede of wacky cowboy metaphors from the rest of the press. The recent 2012 Roundup was no different, except in terms of who took home the most hardware: The Chrysler Group lassoed eight of 18 honors this year.
“With 58 vehicle entries competing in 18 different categories, our members were clearly impressed with the Chrysler Group vehicle line-up,” said Michael Herzing, president of TAWA and host of Yahoo! Sports Radio's “In Wheel” Time radio show. “These accolades speak loudly about the design, capability and versatility of Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat and SRT products.”
