We aren’t the only ones saying the 2015 GMC Sierra HD is a good option for anyone looking for a large heavy duty pickup. Owners of the model agreed, placing the pickup at the top of its class in the 2015 J.D. Power APEAL Study.

The J.D. Power U.S. Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout Study scores many vehicles based on feedback from consumers after 90 days of ownership. Models are evaluated on a thorough survey examining 77 attributes and given a score of one to 1,000. The GMC Sierra HD earned the APEAL Study award for the Large Heavy Duty Pickup category.

“These and similar awards affirm that our customers recognize and appreciate the precision engineering, design and technology that go into every GMC,” said Duncan Aldred, US vice president for GMC. “Sierra HD trucks are engineered without compromise to deliver the capability, refinement and technology that inspire confidence with every task.”

The Sierra HD wasn’t the only standout vehicle in the study. The 2015 GMC Terrain earned runner up in the competitive class of compact SUVs.

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.
