Autoweek’s annual Best of the Best awards featured eight vehicle finalists. They were selected for their performance, design, build quality, value and significance. And over a three-day test session at Michigan International Speedway, one car and one truck were determined the winners.
For the trucks, the winner was the 2015 GMC Canyon.
“Of the hundreds of vehicles Autoweek tests each year, only a relative few truly stand out from the rest,” said Autoweek editor Wes Raynal. “The 2015 GMC Canyon is not only one of the best new vehicles on the market, it’s one of the most important, signaling an exciting return to the mid-sized truck segment.”
The Autoweek award given to to the 2015 Canyon mirrors the win seen by the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and the 2015 Motor Trend Truck of the Year award. The 2015 Colorado was also a runner in the Autoweek competition. Are GM’s mid-size trucks a winning one-two punch? Sales are still more or less just beginning, but if the awards mean anything, then yes.
Where was the 2015 Ford F-150? Ford didn’t provide one.
