Each year, Ward’s Auto chooses ten new and redesigned vehicles for its “10 Best Interiors” list, which honors the models with most innovative and impressive interiors based on a variety of criteria.

Ward’s Auto recently announced its choices for 2015, including the GMC Canyon SLT on the list. Additionally, the Canyon SLT was one of only two pick-up trucks that made the cut, right next to Ford’s latest F-150.

To be eligible for the list, a vehicle’s interior has to be entirely new, meaning there were about 40 vehicles available to choose from for this year’s list. The judges spent a careful 10 days with the cars, in order to make the right decision.

James M. Amend of Ward’s Auto cited “a good dose of technology and styling that strikes a unique balance between sophistication and good old-fashioned pickup ruggedness” as reasons for the Canyon’s selection, as well as its brand attributes.

When you think about the stereotypical family vehicle, you probably think about a minivan, SUV, or even just a regular sedan. But, did you know that the 2015 GMC Canyon is made for families?

Recently, Cars.com writer Carrie Kim was able to test drive the Canyon and was delightfully surprised by how family-friendly it really was. In her review, she wrote, “[the Canyon] offers all the luxuries and upgrades I’m usually looking for in a crossover, but still provides all of a pickup’s utility without any sacrifices. Its manageable size and all the bells and whistles could really appeal to many families—including my own.”

She noted there is plenty of room in the second row of the crew cab model to fit two forward-facing child seats. And, the Canyon uses a simple solution to make sure those seats fit in the way they should. Simply take out the headrest and slide it into the bottom seat cushion to make it a little longer to better accommodate your child’s seat.

Kim also said that for the first time, she and her husband started dreaming about all the fun trips they could take with the Canyon’s cargo and towing capabilities—up to 7,000 pounds when equipped with the towing package and V6 engine.

Come check out the family-friendly 2015 GMC Canyon today at DeVoe Buick GMC and we’ll show you how it can be the perfect vehicle for your family.
