Carl Hogan Automotive Proudly Showcases Auto Excellence Winners: Dodge Durango and Jeep Wrangler

Carl Hogan Automotive is proud to announce the Dodge and Jeep 2012 Popular Mechanics Auto Excellence Award Winners to their customers and community.


Columbus, MS -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/24/2012 -- Carl Hogan Automotive is a Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep dealer in Columbus, MS that is happy to announce their popular models among customers has now been named as 2012 Auto Excellence Winners by Popular Mechanics. The 2012 Dodge Durango and 2012 Jeep Wrangler have pulled out on top in their categories to earn two separate awards.

The 2012 Dodge Durango is one of Carl Hogan Automotive’s leading SUVs and winning the category of “Versatility” with limitless opportunities for consumers, gives the Durango another reason to shine. The Durango offers seating for seven with a timeless designed interior, ability to tow up to 7,400 pounds and has the mechanical hardware to navigate landscape that other well equipped SUVs couldn’t. According to Popular Mechanic, when testing seven other SUVs with the Dodge Durango they actually used the towing features of the Durango to pull other SUVs from the treacherous sandy text course.

Off-road environments and towing features aren’t the only features that give the 2012 Durango the honored versatility. The Durango has sharpness to its drive and gives the driver a luxurious experience with throne-like seats and several advanced tech-features; plus a clean and attractive body style. This is one vehicle that can truly do it all, and with ease.

The 2012 Jeep Wrangler also left its mark on the completion by taking the award for the “Off-Road Ability” category. The last year has been a big one for Jeep designers. They have discarded the granite-hard interior for one with softer materials and gentler curves. The rooftop of the 2012 Jeep Wrangler is now thicker to reduce wind noise, and the more powerful engine has replaced the old 3.8-liter automatic. Overall, the infamous steep approach and departure angles, and the solid running gear – like the skid plates and locking differentials – make the Jeep Wrangler the most capable off-roader in the market.
