put to the testWhen your product makes the best list of anyone out there, it is typical for your chest to swell with pride.  So, when the 2016 GMC Canyon was named the Best Midsize Pickup Truck of 2016, the Thunder Bay GMC Truck Dealers in Canada puffed out their chests a bit, along with the manufacturers of these new GMC Trucks. Cars.com put the current lineup of midsize pickup trucks to the test in its midsize pickup truck challenge to determine the overall best option for buyers and perspective shoppers alike.  The GMC Canyon was the segment’s only high end, premium midsize truck in the contest and also took the top pick by editors of Cars.com in the 2015 comparison test that they ran then, pitting the GMC Trucks against other pickup trucks on the market.

“Establishing a benchmark for a premium midsize pickup was our goal with the Canyon, and PickupTruck.com’s insights affirm our instincts,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing. “The Canyon’s quiet cabin, premium design and materials make it a maneuverable solution for customers who want the capability of a pickup with the modern amenities customers expect from GMC.”

In order to accomplish testing, cars.com included head-to-head comparisons in 18 objective categories and included the following vehicles:  2016 GMC Canyon, 2016 Chevrolet Colorado, 2017 Honda Ridgeline, 2016 Toyota Tacoma and 2016 Nissan Frontier, all in the competition, according to our research done on behalf of your GMC Trucks dealership in Thunder Bay ON.  “The Canyon is an all-around great truck,” said Patrick Olsen, Cars.com editor-in-chief.  He goes on to describe this GMC Truck as well-balanced and confident both on paved streets and off-road. The interior received almost as much in the way of accolades and ability to comfort and please both driver and riders.
