2017 Mid-size Truck of Texas Award Presented to Toyota Motor Manufacturing Texas

Tuesday, November 29, 2016 4:31 PM | Nic Phillips (Administrator)


Each fall, the Texas Auto Writers Association’s (TAWA) annual Texas Truck Rodeo attracts more than 70 automotive journalists from across the United States for a two-day evaluation of the industry’s best trucks, SUVs and CUVs in 17 different categories.

This year's Rodeo provided an opportunity for Toyota to showcase the all-new 2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro and allow journalists the first opportunity to drive it anywhere. After thousands of drives and what accumulated to more than 15 days behind the wheel, the truck was awarded the 2017 Mid-size Truck of Texas, for the second year in a row. 

Toyota was thrilled to receive the award and wanted to celebrate with those who helped make it possible.
