The judges considered everything the new Sierra had to offer, and after two days of intensive road testing, scored it highest among its peers.

2019 Canadian Truck King Challenge

The 12th annual Canadian Truck King Challenge took place in the cold and rain of early October. Frankly, that’s the norm for our event. And while it makes for nasty driving, I always remind our judges that we are simply testing in the same conditions that Canadian truck owners encounter every day.
