The GMC Sierra was just recently named the “Best New Pickup” by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) for 2014. For GMC truck owners this was no surprise but its nice know when you are right about the vehicle you choose to drive.
The Sierra was tested by a rigorous set of back to back testing in Niagara Falls, Ontario this past October. Votes were determined by data turned in by 80 different journalists of 174 different vehicles. So the results are not the personal opinion of just one person but many. Results were settled by the journalists while driving vehicles in a category back to back on the same day and under the same conditions.
According to GM the “all-new 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 full-size pickup is the most powerful, most advanced and most refined truck in the brand’s 111-year history.” GMC’s engineers designed not only a fantastic looking truck on the outside but also a very technologically advanced truck.
The exterior has a fully boxed frame of high-strength steel for improved handling and body mounts that reduce vibration for a smoother ride. A corner step on the rear bumper makes it easy to access anything in the bed of the truck. The Sierra does not lack on the attention to detail options such as chrome accents everywhere.
The interior boasts one of the quietest rides on the road, whether truck or car. A great feature is the center console big enough to store hanging file folders, laptops and all your other fun stuff. The seats are also made with durable materials that will hold their shape longer keeping you comfortable for many years to come.
The technology is amazing with rear back up camera and trailer sway control. IntelliLink5 is available with an 8” color touch radio that lets you customize your media and connect to all of your devices. So check out the Best New Pickup today at your GMC Trucks dealer in Thunder Bay.
