Toyota Steals Title From Ram As The Official Truck of Texas
The Texas Auto Writers Association has made its decision. Ram is out, Toyota is in.
Each year the TAWA names a Truck of Texas. For the last three years, Dodge has taken the title with the Ram 1500. However, this year, they stayed close to home and went with the 2022 Tundra. The Tundra is built at Toyota’s factory in San Antonio and the automaker’s North American headquarters is located in Plano.
TAWA President Kristin Shaw said the decision was based on several facts:
“At the end of the day, our members were duly impressed by the updates and technological advancements included in both the 2022 Tundra and the reborn Grand Wagoneer; both were equally capable on the road course and dirt circuit.”
Other winners this year included the Jeep Grand Cherokee L, Jeep Wagoneer, Genesis GV70, Nissan Frontier, Ram 2500 Power Wagon and Jeep Wrangler 4xe. Both Ford and GM declined to provide pickups this year.
