Truck King Challenge Winner – Long-Term Test – GMC Sierra 1500

The 2019 GMC Sierra Denali 1500 took the top award at last fall’s Canadian Truck King Challenge. That win, for the GMC half-ton, was a first in the 13-year history of our event. It also came as the Sierra went through a generational update – bringing with it a host of new features, inside and outside the truck. The judges considered everything the new Sierra had to offer, and after two days of intensive road testing, scored it highest among its peers.

Road Test: 2019 Cadillac XT4

Cadillac is one of the last luxury automotive manufacturers to venture into the compact-luxury-crossover segment and will look to make a big splash in hopes of luring potential buyers away from their more established competition. On the exterior appearance side of things, Cadillac have done quite well and produced a nice, contemporary looking crossover that bears Cadillac’s current design theme with bold lines and an all-around nice look. Having always been a fan of Cadillac’s interior designs, the XT4 has got that right as well with simple interior that looks to be made of upscale materials and a sense of functionality that can sometimes be lost with all of the technology and features available today.
