At auto shows, it’s usually the manufacturers who are giving things out to industry experts and enthusiasts—releasing new information, unveiling exciting concept vehicles, and even displaying new production models. However, this year at the New York International Auto Show (NYIAS), it’s the experts who are giving back to the manufacturers—especially GMC. The auto giant received three different awards at NYIAS in the Big Apple on April 16, each of them from different and authoritative voices in the auto industry.
The GMC brand itself was named “Most Refined Brand” in the 2014 Kelley Blue Book Brand Image Awards. As for specific vehicles, the 2015 GMC Canyon earned the distinction of AutoTrader.com’s 2014 Must Test Drive vehicle, while the 2014 Acadia was named “2014 Most Popular among Large Crossover SUVs” by Edmunds.com.
“Recognition from respected third-party organizations validates our momentum with customers, and we look forward to building on that success at GMC,” said Duncan Aldred, U.S. vice president of Buick and GMC.
Aldred was on hand in NYC to accept each of the awards. Experts at KBB said that the improvements to the Denali trims of GMC’s full-size pickups and SUVs specifically helped the brand earn the rank of “Most Refined Brand.” We’ve got a variety of Denali trims in stock here at Hutch Chevrolet Buick GMC, so come see us today to check out those or any other vehicles in our award-winning lineup!
