The new GMC Canyon returned this year to take on a weak, aging midsize pickup market. The Canyon features a rugged exterior, and an interior to be reckoned with. While the Chevrolet Colorado also returned, only one of the two midsize pickups made it onto Ward’s Best Interior List.
The editors over at Ward’s Auto World selected their top 10 vehicles with the best interior. Here at Ewing Buick GMC, we aren’t surprised that the GMC Canyon made the list. With one of the best interiors we have available, the GMC Canyon is one of the best choices for comfort, space, and convenience.
“It’s important that great interiors be available in every class of vehicle, not just luxury models that most consumers will never be able to afford,” said Drew Winter, Ward’s Auto World Editor-in-Chief.
Ward’s Auto staff tested, examined, and evaluated 42 new vehicle interiors this year. They ranked everything from design harmony to driver information to safety and back again. With an interior built to suit everyone’s lifestyle, the new GMC Canyon was an obvious choice.
It’s been a busy year in the world of trucks, as evidenced by the reintroduction of GM’s midsize pickup twins, the Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon. Both trucks have been praised by experts across the industry for their quality, refinement, style, and practicality, and now the GMC Canyon is finishing off a successful year by winning a much-sought-after award—Autoweek’s Best of the Best Truck award.
Editors at Autoweek praised the Canyon for its amenities, modernity, style, and more. In fact, they commented that the truck is “brimming with a near-luxury experience”—something we at Ewing Buick GMC agree with 100%. The Canyon beat out seven other finalists to be named the victor—each finalist underwent a vigorous three-day test session at Michigan International Speedway which analyzed its performance, quality, design, significance, and value.
“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 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.”

Say hello to the GMC Canyon; the GMC Sierra’s little brother. With the introduction of the GMC Canyon, the automaker challenges the definition of “pickup truck”. In the world of pickups, we tend to assume that it’s got to be a big, gas-guzzling beast in order to be awesome. We happen to think there’s a place for a smaller, more efficient pickup, and it’s equally awesome.
The 2015 GMC Canyon can do things and go places that a Sierra 2500 could never do or go. The Canyon has a turning radius of just 41 feet, while electronic power steering provides easy maneuverability in situations where big trucks would struggle. Take that, Sierra 3500. The short-bed crew cab is just 212.7 inches long, ideal for people who regularly park in tight spots, parking garages or have a small garage.
EPA highway estimates are impressive; 22 mpg for 4×4 versions, and 24 mpg for 2WD models. Sierras equipped with the 4.3L V-6 will boast the highest available towing rating of 7,200 pounds, making it the most capable V-6 truck available.
“With its smaller size and associated nimble nature, Canyon provides pickup capability and exceptional comfort in an efficient and more manageable package,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing in a news release. “An increasing number of customers don’t need the full capability of a full-size pickup, yet desire the functionality a pickup offers. These customers appreciate the smaller size of mid-sized pickups, with their ability to easily fit in a garage, travel downtown areas of big cities, and navigate crowded parking lots. The all-new 2015 GMC Canyon represents the best of both worlds in this sense.”
