There’s a reason people love GMC trucks. They’re fun, versatile, and capable—so it’s really no surprise the GMC Canyon was named the Best Midsize Pickup Truck of 2016.
This year, Cars.com held the Midsize Pickup Truck Challenge to find the very best, and the GMC Canyon took home the award. It didn’t earn it easily, either. There’s tons of competition out there among midsize pickups, but its Cars.com’s goal to narrow the good to the great to the best.
Trucks were pitted against each other in eighteen different categories, including style, utility, and safety. The 2016 GMC Canyon stood out above the Chevrolet Colorado, Honda Ridgeline, Toyota Tacoma, and the Nissan Frontier.
Patrick Olsen, editor-in-chief of Cars.com, explains the Canyon’s win: “The Canyon is an all-around great truck. It is well-balanced and confident both on paved streets and off-road. It’s a well-appointed truck on the interior and has some serious ability when it comes to payload and towing as well as overall engine performance.”
