It’s an annual event that takes place at Knibbe Ranch in San Antonio, Texas. Each year, the top truck manufacturers bring out their best, boldest and toughest trucks, SUVs and cross-overs for the Texas Auto Writers Associtation’s (TAWA) fall test drive event.
This isn’t your average media test drive event. The Knibbe Ranch offers the opportunity for all the participants to take the vehicles off-roading on some 2-wheel friendly courses, as well as some extreme off-road courses through rivers, over rocky terrains and up some bumpy inclines.
General Motors was representated in several catagories with a variety of vehicles.
Full-Size Sport Utility Vehicle: 2013 GMC Yukon XL Denali AWD
Compact SUV: 2013 Chevrolet Equinox LTX AWD
Full Size Luxury SUV: 2013 Cadillac Escalade AWD Premium
Full Size Luxury Cross-Over: 2013 Buick Enclave 1SN
Mid-Size Luxury Cross-Over: 2013 SRX FWD Premium Collection
Mid-Size Cross-Over: 2013 GMC Terrain Denali AWD
Full-Size Cross-Over: 2013 GMC Acadia Denali
Luxury Pick-Up Trucks: 2013 GMC Sierra 2500 Denali Crew Cab
Heavy Duty Pick-Up Truck: 2013 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 4WD LTZ Crew Cab
At the end of the two days of test drives, each journalist votes on a variety of catagories to determine the best of the best out of the toughest trucks, cross-overs and SUVs. The results will be announced soon. In the meantime – enjoy my favorite photo of the weekend, the GMC Sierra taking off on the dusty ranch roads during sun-down.
