Genesis received five awards from the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) as part of the 2023 Texas Truck Rodeo held in Decatur, Texas at Eagles Canyon Raceway. The Genesis GV70 and Electrified GV70 won four awards for SUV of Texas, Luxury SUV of Texas, best interior, and best exterior. The Electrified GV70 won an additional award for Green Vehicle of Texas.
“We are pleased to have the GV70 and Electrified GV70 recognized by TAWA members for exceptional design and performance,” said Claudia Marquez, chief operating officer of Genesis Motor North America. “This recognition of the GV70 family echoes the warm welcome that our brand and its products have received from customers across the state of Texas.”
Assembled in the United States, the award-winning Genesis GV70 and Electrified GV70 SUVs are engineered with customers in mind, delivering exceptional design, advanced technologies, and dynamic performance. Standard equipment in both vehicles includes all-wheel drive, a 14.5-inch HD multimedia display, and a comprehensive suite of driver assistance and safety features, including Highway Driving Assist.
Automotive journalists and content creators across Texas tested a cross-section of the latest vehicles at this year’s event held on Sept. 28-29. TAWA members evaluated vehicles within their category and amongst the entire group of vehicles present. Votes were based upon each vehicle’s interior, exterior, value, performance, and overall personal appeal. Votes were electronically submitted and then calculated by a third-party accounting firm and presented to TAWA for presentation.
“We are delighted to award the Genesis GV70 and Electrified GV70 in multiple categories at this year’s Texas Truck Rodeo,” said Teia Blackshear Collier, Texas Auto Writers Association president. “The impressive suite of safety, technology, and design features ranked both models at the top of their competitive segments.”
