Members of the Northwest Automotive Press Association gathered on the Washington Peninsula for the annual Outdoor Activity Vehicle of the Year test days, dubbed Mudfest. When all is said and done the members then voted on their favorites in a number of categories, including Compact, Premium Compact, Family, Premium, Extreme, Truck and Overall.
Vehicles entered are selected by their respective manufacturers. Usually they enter their newest models. Also, not all vehicles are available for testing on a specific date; believe it or not, it’s not easy to get 28 vehicles in one place at one time. So if you don’t see a vehicle you love in the running, that’s probably why.
What do you think of the results?
