Autoweek takes their Best of the Best award very seriously. First of all, they select eight finalists in both the car and truck category, selections based on evaluations in the areas of “performance, design, build quality, value and significance,” according to GM News. Then comes the fun part. The editors rent out the Michigan International Speedway and spend three days testing the finalists.
This year after the smoke cleared, the 2015 GMC Canyon emerged as the Best of the Best truck. In a statement about the winner, Autoweek said, “It’s truly a truck in the most honest sense…but refuses to forego the requirements a modern buyer has in a vehicle: refinement, modern conveniences and amenities, high-quality build, practicality and style.”
Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing, responded by saying, “Autoweek’s recognition affirms our instincts.” It’s those good instincts that inspired GM to offer AutoTrac automatic four-wheel drive, G80 locking rear differential and OnStar with 4G LTE–the very features that certainly helped them take the title, the same features that we love to show our customers here at Warsaw Buick GMC.
