GMC is known for offering some of the most popular vehicles on the market and it’s been recognized by AutoPacific for doing so year after year. Now, GMC has been named the Most Ideal Popular Brand for the third consecutive year. Three GMC models led their segments, making GMC one of only two automakers to accomplish the feat. GMC took home the top honor in AutoPacific’s 2016 Ideal Vehicle Awards thanks to the Acadia, Yukon/Yukon XL, and the Sierra pickup. The Acadia topped the Large Crossover SUV segment while the Yukon/Yukon XL dominated the Large SUV segment. The GMC Sierra tackled the Light Duty Pickup segment for the second year in a row and also served as the brand’s bestselling model. Of the three, the 2017 GMC Acadia is all-new for the model year and boasts an impressive interior, advanced infotainment system, innovative safety technologies, and more. The SUV offers a comfort-oriented ride that makes it perfect for both short and long trips. In order to determine what brand and vehicles took home the top honors, the 2016 Ideal Vehicle Awards surveyed more than 65,000 owners.
